  1. While I’m typically a big training advocate, I kept missing DA shots with my Shadow 2. Sure, if I slowed way down, I could guarantee an Alpha but the time expense doesn’t improve my score. I dry-fired 30minutes 4-5x week and was shooting 2-300 rounds live 3x a month through it in practice and an additional 300 rounds per month in matches. I suppose DA comprised around 1/4 of those rounds, yet I was not making progress in DA. After around three months, a friend and fellow competitor texted me a list of springs and parts and suggested I get them. I purchased them x2 (one for each of Shadow 2s as to keep the trainer and match gun the same) for a sum of $80 shipped. Suddenly I was getting Alphas out of the holster and ringing steel out of the holster. I don’t know how much longer it would have taken me to achieve the same results with training but at three months, and at least more than 9x the cost in ammunition, I “bought performance” with two spring kits and firing pins. According to some of you guys how long should I have “trained” to get the same result of $80 on parts? Additionally, are those guys all shooting 100% stock pistols? Yes, I will continue to practice. My practice has and should continue to focus on the whole gamut of skills but it did not correct my shortcoming at this time while parts did improve my scores and confidence. The notion that it is practice OR parts is asinine. It should be practice AND parts. ETA: I also had a $450 training course during this time and fired 1,200 rounds during that which I didn’t count.

  2. Tammi, I’d recommend you benching the pistol and shoot from a rest or sandbag before blaming it on the sights. I’ve shot several out of the box and nine were significantly low or left. I’m going on a limb thinking you’re likely a new shooter and right handed. It is typically that inexperienced shooters will shoot low left. This is exacerbated in double-action. Should you discover that the sight needs adjusted, the process should be in the owner’s manual. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Since it’s the same footprint as the RMR, if it’s a problem, you could replace it with an RMR or holosun. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. I was told they would start shipping to dealers on the 9th. I ordered one and was told not to expect it by June. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. I know nothing about them offering an R3Max with any specific cut. But their new pistols will be DPP cut, including updated to existing X-Series guns. https://www.osagecountyguns.com/blog/news/sig-sauer/sigs-2019-firearm-releases-detailed/ It seems odd Sig would offer three different cuts on their optics and two variations on pistols. But it’s Sig, they do Sig stuff. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  7. Knowing Sig, second Tuesday of next week. Really, the M17s are available and have DPP cut. Supposed to carry over to new production X series soon. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. New Sigs are supposed to come with a DPP cut. The old Sigs will require an adapter plate. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. You did not reference the Sig. The thread is about the Trijicon. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Read the thread. It’s $490. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. I believe it’s safe to say the “tactical” crowd and CO crowd have vetted the RMR thoroughly on guns that get beat up pretty badly, reciprocating on the slide, and even with intentional abuse. See some of the Aaron Cowan write-ups and videos. Being the mounting is the same and the electronics are akin to the type 2 RMR, I’ll wager the DPP and others are no match for the new Trijicon.

  12. Trijicon has been making all electronic optics for at least a decade. They have been holding up better than Leupold, CMore, Vortex, Sig...the whole field. The complaint was the Trijicon was too small. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. My type 1 RMR started blinking after about 5,000 rounds. I bent the battery connector slightly, switched to Duracell batteries (thicker), and slid a piece of tape under it. That’s how I still run. My type 1 RMR now has 25,000 rounds on it. Granted, that’s not all in one year. My aftermarket trigger broke before my RMR. It direct milled for that that specific optic. Not direct milled for an RMR, but my RMR. Taking it out requires patience......and a mallet. It’s working so well I still have my original “backup” RMR new in box. I don’t think the type 2 was actually any improvement, just a few stopgap measures that could keep them in the fame while the SRO was developed. Seems the Red Dot has been the weakest, most common thing to fail on a match set-up. I’ve been in more than one class where guys complain they’ve lost their dot and they just freeze up in confusion for a few seconds. If the SRO works, it’ll be well worth $490. What is cheaper? 2-3 Delta Points or Romeos or one SRO? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. This has been my experience. Certain headstand brass, I can pull the bullet after it’s run through the FCD and it may be 0.002” smaller than it started. I get lots of flyers and velocity variation with Blues when using the FCD. I figured this out after some uncalled Ds and Mikes on 25-30 yard targets when I know I had a good call. It does work awesome for FMJs though. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. I think that a taper crimp works better on coated lead bullets than does the FCD. It will actually size the bullet down with thicker brass. Just use a Redding taper crimp and accuracy will be better and velocity will be more consistent, especially with mixed stamp brass. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
