    computers, muscle cars, shooting; I've shot some USPSA, but lately SCSA steel challenge is what I'm doing. I shoot OPN and RFPO; I also have a 65 GTO that keeps me busy.

  1. Your advice is really hitting home the last 2 weeks during recovery. I definitely under estimated the recovery. Strange how much strength and coordination in upper body I have lost. I feel weak and uncoordinated in my arms and upper chest . Neither of which I expected. Pain is getting better. Thanks for the advice.
  2. That looks great. Interesting, one could vary thickness to accommodate different trigger finger lengths, etc; Could you take a pic of the backside on how the lever slips onto the existing tab ?
  3. I really like this idea ( I could even weld it to the existing lever ). I don't have a mag adapter in hand, but my question is how much lateral sideways force on the lever is OK. Will the mag drop lever still function OK if I have it extended to span to the left side ? Hard to explain but you hopefully get the drift that today the level is a direct push back, with the sideways span it will have some lateral force put on ejection lever, dunno if that is an issue or not ?
  4. I'd luv to see a good borescope video if someone has that equipment. I'm still skeptical it is anything except carbon, but who knows; To clarify we are talking about buildup in the shroud.
  5. Just as a reference point, my brand new never fired wiland barrel weight 11.4 oz when I first got it ( stainless )
  6. Lightening the barrel has had only very positive effects in how the gun performs for me in steel challenge. Separately, I have reduced my 9mm loads to a power factor of about 70 that has significantly reduced felt recoil. I don't have an opinion on dot movement as in the game of steel challenge the dot is sort of always moving anyway if you are shooting very fast. I had zero change in what the gun would cycle, it eats everything. Think of it as a pistol now. I'm not enough of an ammo geek to give you a point of view on recoil impulse and speed of bolt recoil to be honest. Going forward, I would like to remove the tungsten weight and replace with AL or Steel. I did remove the weight entirely for about 25 rounds and the gun cycled fine, but then realized that the weight plays a small role in keeping the spring plate in place so I didn't want to go too far. Hope this helps.
  7. For a left handed shooter, the Stern Defense is clearly not a good option.
  8. I haven't purchased it yet. The PSA adapter seems interesting and is a different approach to mag catch. Anyone else have hands on experience with the PSA adapter ? I should add that I am a left handed shooter so the Stern seems particularly difficult to actuate for safe / fast mag changes;
  9. Great info on both accounts Steve !
  10. About to build a competition PCC using a pre-ban lower here in CT. While I heard good things about the Stern mag adapter, the mag release button sucks and seems incomplete in design, but I don't have a better answer on how to improve. Anyone have a point of view on how it can be improved or if there is a better answer than the clunky button in front of trigger finger that must be pressed forward in order to drop the mag. https://getstern.com/mag-ad9/
  11. As we are approaching August and the COVID situation is dynamic any updates or PoV on if the event is gonna go off at CMP on schedule ? Trying to make work / travel plans. I'm sure the logistics from Zach's end are hell trying to manage all of the moving parts.
  12. Perhaps what the OP is asking is sometimes there is discrepancy which I have noticed when the results are uploaded and viewable on SCSA, but they are not yet used in the most recent classification. Seems lately it has been a little more finicky or at least the clubs I shoot at have had their share of issues.
  13. I've been trying to push myself lately, but if the RO doesn't keep a consistent cadence, I end up with a false start or creeping as I am anticipating essentially when the beep is about to go off.
  14. I don't have a Taccom shrouded barrel yet but what is the diameter difference ? Taccom sells a cleaning tool that could be modified perhaps ? https://taccom3g.com/product/ulw-barrel-cleaning-tool/
