Calls Shots

Calls Shots (8/11)

  1. Absolutely true. I've had the front screw loosen and this is exactly what happens.
  2. Another piece of data: I run the VQ drop in TG9 trigger; Recently I had my ruger PCC go full auto with a super super light load ( 75pf ) I was testing. With 900+ power factor I have no problems. I have several thousand rounds through this combo. I'm not a trigger geek. There is some relationship where the bolt does not come all the way back and reset the trigger. The trigger then follows the bolt forward and bang. Originally the TK / Mcarbo enhanced buffer pad I thought was the culprit and it was for the loads I shoot, but even with the stock black pad, it went full auto w/the 1.8gr n310 95gr round testing My VQ took alot of tweaking by VQ to achieve their stated 2lb pull weight. It is sensitive to burst fire.
  3. SOLVED: I borrowed a friends stock Ruger pcc rifle for testing and installed my problematic TG9 trigger assembly and had zero burst fires. After some soul searching I started swapping parts, weighing parts, and measuring parts. I use an mcarbo shock buffer at the rear of the recoil spring. https://www.mcarbo.com/ruger-pc-carbine-shock-buffer.aspx it is a small amount thicker ( .120 ) than the stock buffer. This is apparently enough to keep the bolt from fully cycling and reseting the hammer in the TG9 trigger assembly, especially with stronger ammo pf100+ and is most frequent at pf135. Swapped mine to stock and I get to enjoy the capabilities of the VQ trigger without the drama of burst fire.
  4. Going Saturday PM and starting off on the mighty outer Limits ! Could very well be an early dumpster fire;
  5. From a shooter registration point of view 'x' should not be used, but I had a first hand experience a few years ago where I registered and showed up to the east coast championship SC match ( level 2 ). Upon check in they told me that my USPSA/SCSA membership was expired and I had some period of time to renew it else my scores would be invalid. My results showed a class 'x' when match results published. I rapidly renewed and all was good. The net.net is there was some kind of backend validation that the club or SCSA did that validated and put me in 'x' class based on expiration status.
  6. @chrsb How are the EEP-100 working out ? Have you had a chance to use them ?
  7. Is there much difference other than appearance coating between the eclipse vs competition offerings from Hiperfire ? https://www.hiperfire.com/triggers/hipertouch-family/
  8. Recently I had to remove my TG9 trigger. I started to get burst fires with multiple ammo PF loads ( soft / medium / factory ). I like the trigger ( despite overall weight ) over the stock, but it consistently started to give bursts of 2-4 shots. I probably have 7000 rounds through it.
  9. Practiscore Log is probably what you want. https://apps.apple.com/us/app/practiscore-log/id1485673674?ls=1 https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.javatx.practiscore.practice_log
  10. I get very quick response from jamie@volquartsen.com in customer service;
  11. I find the stock VQ trigger too far rearward. I am changing to a tandemkross victory flat face ( Have this in my sw22 victory ) . Here is an overlay of the profiles. Yes the 2 holes at the top are lined up.
  12. I really like the routine that Thomas laid out. I do pretty much the same. Eventually consistently is more important than just a hero stage or 2 throughout a match. @Stixpassed along the pyramid style of training which I also like to have a more quantitative approach, especially when starting a new division or gun setup. The Pendulum is a classic stage that this seems to help. It identifies where you are loosing time and accuracy weaknesses. While originally designed for dryfire, it is applicable to live fire, just a bit of swapping on par time setup in the timer. Example: Accelerator Draw to plate one .75 par time Accelerator Transition one 1.03 par time Accelerator Transition two 1.48 par time Accelerator Transition three 1.93 par time Accelerator Transition four ( stop plate ) 2.38 par time Each transition is an individual drill. For pyramid training, you need to be able to see where your weaknesses are and work to fix them. I do 5 repetitions for each drill. So in Accelerator draw I do 5 repetitions to just the first plate. Then in Accelerator Transition 1 I do 5 repetitions to plate one and plate two, Accelerator Transition 2 I do 5 repetitions to plates 1,2 & 3. until I go through the entire stage. So in essence, you are doing 25 total repetitions for each stage. I only practice one to two stages a day. Over the course of the week, you are still practicing each stage.
  13. Yes, cut it off with a hacksaw and filed smooth. On my 9mm PCC it works great. New and improved c-more mounting on Scorpion. Much better balance, dot acquisition and even just plain 'looks'. I'll touch up the black paint on the on the rail mount a bit. I also did not leave the c-more riser / spacer in there.
  14. Notice the front c-more mounting hole on the mamba-x is aligned with front of trigger vs how the c-more mounts on the scorpion. This confirmed I wasn't crazy or more OCD than usual;
  15. Strategically I think I will prefer the weight and takedown of a mamba / Mark IV, but I am going to use this scorpion for a few months. I did shoot an SC match w/my sw22 victory yesterday and knocked .55 off my peak times so I'm second guessing my directions galore. I'm a c-more slide ride zealot and use 6 of them. I'm not changing at this point. My plan is to shorten the rail adapter mount allowing me to substantially move the dot rearward. The length of the mount with (3) mounting locations is overkill. I sort of did something similar on my PCC but for different reasons and a long and uninteresting story. With the mount cut in half, I would expect the c-more glass to be approximately over the trigger. I'm open to other ideas. No doubt I was hunting for the dot on the scorpion with it so far forward.
