  1. There are other general polls on CO red dot choice, but I want to see what people prefer and think of them on Stock 2s.

    Have you looked at Romeo 3? I heard it's better than 1. Still wondering which dot to get...

    New IFG “LimPro” update

    Any update on pre-order dates?
  4. Besides Dillon 9mm die, which other die will eliminate or reduce the case crushing issue? I am using Lee die and it's been a headache. Aligned toolhead with the Dillon alignment tool, plus all other suggestions here but same result. I think it's time to change the die.
  5. I am having the same problem. about 70k loaded on the press, and cases start being crushed every 50 or so. Lee standard die, not U die. Did everything said here, used the Dillon alignment tool, replaced all the springs and case feed assembly block, etc. Same result. I am thinking maybe it's the die's life is up. When I did slow motion video of the problem, I noticed that the cases are perfectly positioned before the shaft starts moving up. However, while the shaft moves up, there is a loud click that is from the resetting of the shellplate, and that click is causing vibrations that send the cases outwards slightly. My shell plate is not very much tightened, because if it is there are other problems, but it's been like that for the past 70k rounds. So I don't know why the problem just started now.
  6. Is the shellplate bearing kit the one with a plastic ball? I have had it for years just did not think of it can solve this particular problem. It's not the forward rotation causing issues.
  7. Has anyone noticed the loud click while the main shaft moves up? I assume that's when the reset happens. With the click the shell plate will vibrate. This vibration is causing powders to be spilled sometimes, and brass in station 1 to move outwards resulting in crushed brass into the sizing die. Is there any after market solutions to reduce/eliminate this "click" vibration? Thanks.
  8. Thanks! I tried loosing up 16340 and indeed the cube fell out of the notch in the middle of a run... only noticed after 20 or 30 rounds. I tested and it seems the bolt needs to go all the way into the nylock nut 16340, e.g. pretty tight, in order to prevent the cube from falling out. I will lube 13848.

    Stock 2 grip screw size

    Both of these work from http://www.mcmaster.com work for me. I don't think you can get them from Lowes/Home Depot. If you have local Fastenal stores, they should have them too. Passivated 18-8 Stainless Steel Pan Head Phillips Screws M3.5 x 0.6mm Thread, 8mm Long 92000A153 316 Stainless Steel Slotted Screws Narrow Cheese Head, M3.5 x 0.6mm Thread, 8mm Long 91613A184
  10. Do you mean 13904 should only loosely bolt into 16340? I tightened it all the way.
  11. I have had the bellcrack bolt (part# 13904) broken in half last year. This year, I have been paying attention, and noticed pile of black powder accumulating over time. It appears that the bolt is getting grinded down. Is this normal wear and tear? Or is something wrong with my setup?

    Red Dot Slide Milling

    Did you use plastic guide rod or other plastic parts to make 43.5oz, besides the grips?

    Bull barrels

    So factory guns with factory cone barrels > 4.25'' are still no go even if they make weight and fit in box?

    CGW floating trigger pin

    You don't need a punch + hammer to put on the floating pin. Just fingers. To take it off, however, you do need something sharp to push it out. Still you don't need a hammer. For clean freaks who like to detail clean every 1000 rounds, the floating pin is a big plus.

    Stock 2 failure to extract issue

    Extractors for Stock 2 vary quite a bit. I have seen at least 3 different kinds of extractors - one bought from BSPS, one from EAA store and one from PD. They all carry the same part number 11.1, but they surely have different appearances, e.g. some with marking of "9" on one side and "2" on the other side, some have no marking at all, different profiles including the hook area. Some may not work in certain Stock 2s. The best way is probably to buy all of them and find out which one works for your gun.
