  1. Dont know about 3gun with different handling requirements but for what its worth the world champions in IPSC Rifle seem to be using 18-20" barrels.
  2. Do you know is it more or less aggressive than their G10 Bogies or similar?
  3. I am running a dot with my Beretta 1301. Generally it's great with slugs and buckshot and does increase my accuracy during difficult shots with birdshot but it does make me a bit slower on conventional birdshot stages. I see no problem with the type of "slow" flying clays you mentioned but for trap/skeet type of flying clays a red dot will hurt my shooting.
  4. I have heard of this happening but always when shooting through a port and letting the handle beat the wall.
  5. When reading american articles about handgunds I am always baffled cause they usually shoot groups to 10 yards. I think the standard range everywhere else for handguns is 25 meters = 27,3 yards. I think 25m groups tell a whole lot more and also it teaches the shooter a lot more about what he is doing wrong. Here in Finland even the 18 year old military conscripts start from 25 meters and they usually havent done any shooting before. I dont get it, why go for 10 yards?
  6. Ive started with bolt forward, hammer cocked -> PEEP -> load 8 into tube -> press the little button to release a round on top of lifter -> rack the bolt -> shoot.
  7. Sorry no pics but I can tell you that I am positively surprised. I loaded 200 rounds (batch for load development) and the crimp removal seems good enough not to cause bigger concerns. Out of the 3000 brass I prepped, I expect a few crushed primers but for now Im happy with results.
  8. I bought it and have prepped around 3000 brass with it (maybe 2000 crimped ones). Had some difficulties at first trying to get it centered but then gave up and just went with it. Im only just starting the reload phase so cannot yet comment about how good job it does. By the looks of decrimped brass, I am a little worried there might be issues when priming.
  9. Someone must know what to use with factory ammo?
  10. I am now running Shadow 2 OR with DPP on a original CZ mount. Currently using 13lb recoil spring and shooting Bulk Factory ammunition (Geco or Sellier&Bellot). How do I know if a lighter spring would help with recoil? Putting the DPP on top increased the recoil noticeably.
  11. Sorry, I wrote this not thinking that some people live in USA. For us in Europe only change is to make one because S&W customer support doesn't extend here.
  12. Your best bet is to find a machinist or gun smith who can make one based on your old firing pin. I paid 20€ each for my last firing pins.
  13. IPSC Shotgun World Shoot 2018 - Standard division was won with Beretta 1301. Second place in Modified division was also taken with 1301. Both Finnish shooters.
  14. New beretta 1301s dont have that serial number problem anymore. They moved it.
