  1. If TF isn't working for you and you don't want to support Taran's continued search for the "Precious" then MBX is the next best thing. Though, MBX is the only extension I've seen fail (explode rounds) on a stage. Small sample size and have no idea what those two competitors did to their mags.
  2. Completely agree. Throw in an SCS if you had an extra $140 and you'll have a completely different rifle.
  3. I have purchased two JPs. One 18" and one 14.5". I have since sold the 18" as I can easily get hits out to 600 yards with the 14.5" and it handles much better on bay stages. After making numerous modifications to my setup my recommendation would be to buy an upper if you are going to buy anything. I would just build a lower and use the controls, trigger, stock, and buffer that you prefer. I changed all these on my JP over time. I think JP has a pretty long wait right now though and if you know what you're doing a home build will be every bit as competitive. I have two bay match builds that I am messing around with and both have the JP LMOS carrier and the SCS. With an adjustable gas block they feel every bit as smooth and soft shooting as the factory guns.
  4. Came here to also recommend FS Tactical. He used my Chaos as his original Atlas holster and my Erebus as well. I still use his hooded holster for my Erebus. He makes good stuff and will work with you on getting exactly what you want. For a while his stuff was sold directly on Atlas's site.
  5. I would, of course, zero on the center dot. You will see most people zero anywhere from 12 to 25 yards with a few outliers on either end. The majority of competitors will be using a single dot since it's a cleaner/simpler visual presentation. Though, I'm sure you could make this work for you if you prefer it.
  6. Hiperfire Hipertouch Eclipse is the go to for a lot of PCC competitors. It stands up to the beating of the blowback design. Very crisp trigger, weight can be changed with included springs, and it has a forceful reset which is an oft overlooked quality in a trigger.
  7. You certainly do not need the monolithic SCI-20 to hit targets at distance. The CTR-02 is mostly an aesthetic upgrade and has been around awhile. I use the standard JP-15 and have connected out to 600 with no problem. Either of those would be fantastic competition rifles.
  8. I'm not sure what you mean by "correct" height over bore. I use a JP 45° mount that works just fine.
  9. Couldn't agree more. Order the Eclipse and don't give it another thought.
  10. Vit N320 is a great powder. I have used it in the past but moved to Clean Shot when N320 became too expensive for me.
  11. By far my favorite AR15 trigger is the Timney Calvin Elite. I heard it was failing in AR9s so like you I went for a similar feel since I couldn't use the same trigger in both. As close as I could get was the Hiperfire Eclipse. The break,travel, and reset force was close enough that I could run them equally well.
  12. Completely agree. I'm not surprised at all about the turnout. I hope to see many more matches with this setup in my area. With 3 gun on the decline I am already seeing increased interest in outlaw 2 gun matches locally. It'd be great for a match with a unified rule-set to become a regular thing.
  13. Also, interested you y'alls experience with the platform.
  14. As far as holsters go, like you, I had an incident with a pistol coming out. My rifle sling tripped the release on a DAA Alpha X holster and sent my Atlas Chaos tumbling through the gravel. I was perfectly happy with a race holster until that point. If you don't hit the release they're rock solid and totally fine for most matches especially bay style stages. If you like the ultra-physical it may or may not work for you. Sometimes it comes down to peace of mind more than whether or not it will work. @inertia is right a race holster will give you the most options especially with the many configurations of the Honcho. A guy local to me FSTactical built hooded kydex holsters for the Atlas Chaos that were badass and Atlas sold them on their site. I mention that to say that there are options for whatever pistol setup you decide on. Personally I don't think you'll lose any speed with a slide ride dot and a hooded holster. Regarding shotgun mags, my two preferred methods are kydex clips and pouches. Since I no longer needed shell caddies I swap out a rifle and shotgun pouch in the appendix position. At the 7 to 9 positions I use clips on mags. Some guys use pouches in this position like Lan and Mike from Dissident do sometimes. I also got my pouch from FSTatical. I've attached a picture of my setup. The spacing would be different were I wearing it. I can also add a pistol pouch or a rifle pouch on Tekloks as well as fit two more Vepr mags with clips if I had to. Belt setup varies from person to person and, as I'm sure you know, there's really no wrong way if it works for you.
  15. I'll give you a list of changes I made after switching to open. Mostly I shoot far more aggressively. You have extra rounds and the Dissident can be run hard. Pull some triggers at a full sprint, enjoy it, and welcome to the one true division. Rifle - Multiple JPs Shotgun - KL12 NNS Pistol - Atlas Erebus -JP 45°offset mount for rifle dot -Atlas bipod (any quality one will work of course) -Arca Rail for bipod and bags( full retard open and not necessary) -Extra batteries in my bag -Reconfigure belt setup -Get the thumb actuated mag release on your KL-12 -You will rarely use a drum mag. Stick to the 12 and 20 rounders -Shotgun mag pouch if that appeals to you -Learn your new patterns with the change to a 14" shotgun -Dumping a shotgun with a huge mag
  16. Can't speak for everyone, but my GMR-15 struggled with small rifle primers. My pistols ran them just fine.
  17. I don't know of any 3 gun specific dry fire materials. The 3 Gun Show podcast has hours of interviews with high level guys who discuss their processes. I would do all the drills you do with your pistol with your long guns as well. Target transitions, loads, manipulations, enter/exit positions, and "draws". Main additions would be transitions between weapons and quad loading if you make the mistake of not shooting open. If you shoot longer distance practice efficiently getting into and out of supported rifle positions. You can really seperate yourself from the field on the rifle. It goes without saying, but knowing your dope is crucial.
  18. I was thinking variable mass bolt.
  19. It's what I use in my JP. They will clog up your comp faster than FMJ and plated bullets if that matters to you.
  20. I use almost every size of the TF extensions in my stock JP GMR-15. I usually download one though only to seat it in the gun easier. I can't say I've had any feeding issues though since installing the extensions.
  21. I have been using the Vortex Ranger 1800. It does everything I need it too.
  22. Looks like the budget version of Dissident's other PCC. http://dissidentarms.com/index.php/product/komp9-elite-competition-9mm-carbine-kr-9-dissident-arms-kusa/
  23. Right now I go between 18" and 14.5". I like the 14.5 with a dot for bay matches and the 18 with a 1-6 when I'm shooting beyond 300 yards. You can easily shoot at distance with a shorter barrel I just prefer the big boy for longer shots. It comes down to personal preference and knowing your DOPE. I suppose the heat sink could help if you go from a 30 round burner array(s) to finishing the stage with longer shots. I will say yes, the handguard is not nearly as warm with the heatsink on. I have no doubt it works. I just haven't felt I needed enough to justify the weight.
  24. I started out with a full build and now I only buy JP uppers. I wanted to change the stock, trigger, and controls. I have two lowers built out how I like them and just swap 3 JP uppers between them. I think you're spot on with paying $600 for something you'll change anyway. I took my heat sink off. I don't need it for the style of 3 gun I normally shoot.
