  1. I shot a practice session of about 500 rounds and only began to notice the gunk on the lens after about 250-300 rounds. I also shot one 6 stage match with it and wiped off the lens after ever stage since it's not hard to do. I'm sure I could have shot the entire match without wiping the lens as the gunk was only noticeable if i was purposely looking at it instead of being target focused. Since it's easy to wipe the lens off, I would say the shield is mandatory, but it does defiantly help. The shield is burnt and black looking (even after I cleaned it with solvent) from only the 100 rounds I tested. It is definitely take the brunt of the blast and I had very little if anything on the lens, so I'd say it does it's job well.
  2. I put the tevo blast shield on my atlas mount last night and shot 100 rounds to test it. Glass was very clean (as clean as any other dot/mount/blast shield combo). I didn't notice any negative effects to having it on there either. I can add a picture later if you want.
  3. The atlas mounts just came back in stock. The picture you were looking is for the DPP and other dots. They don't show a picture of the 510C mount. I ordered a couple of tevo blast shields to try as well.
  4. I can't find one either.
  5. Hmmm... I wonder if the Atlas puts the sight further forward than the Tevo. Seems that would cause my problem and fix yours.
  6. I recently put one on my Chaos using the mount from Atlas. No ejection issues at all. Sight itself is pretty awesome. The only draw back is it gets blasted pretty good by the holes in my barrel. Have to make sure I wipe the lens off after every stage. I'm thinking about adding the Tevo blast shield to it. I assume it would work with the atlas mount.
  7. Yes, Atlas makes one. I have one and it's great. Waiting for them to come back in stock to switch my other atlas gun over as well.
  8. Awesome, I'll give that a try. Thanks!
  9. I have several MBX and about half of them seem to have issues when I get down to only four rounds in the magazine. Not sure what dimension is off, but it runs great until there's four left and all the spring tension seems to go away. After knocking the round out, the last 3 feed fine again. I assume it has something to do withe the area where the double stack goes to single or maybe something is catching the follower at that point, but I can't seem to get it right yet. My STI gen 2 and atlas videos have been the ticket for me.
  10. I have the same issue with that spot. Trying to get over it by tweaking my grip slightly. If that doesn’t do it, I’ll go back to my other guns which would be a shame because I like everything else about the X5. I asked phil strader about it at shot. He said the xcompact doesn’t have it but there are no plans to get rid of it on the other models because there are very few complaints about it. He said it’s a cosmetic thing to make the high bore axis look less extreme.
  11. Sounds like I should get some a try it out then. Thanks.
  12. Does major pistol fill the case so much it would fly everywhere with an automated press (9major 124 bullet)?
  13. Did anyone have ejections issues or does the sight not interfere with the ejection port?
  14. Like what? I have two atlas open guns along with their magazines and several accessories. I haven't had an issue with anything and they were easy to talk to the couple of times I've had questions. No trying to argue with you, just wondering what has happened?
