  1. Well.... if I didn't have the advice of the experts here, I would try something like this........ I would mount the optic first, and zero that in at my desired range. Once I had it grouping tight, I'd throw the gun in a vice, weld a cheek, and experiment with toothpicks or little pieces of fiber optic to mock the heights of the front and rear iron sights to co witness the dot. Once I was happy with all three witnesses I would measure my matchsticks and buy the appropriate height front and rear sights. I'm sure there's a better way. Did I hypothetically do it wrong?
  2. Curses, I was hoping they would start stamping serial numbers. They have been selling within minutes on calguns.net for the last few days... I saw several go for 17 hundred to 2k.
  3. That's funny George, I went over to the Sig Talk forum, read your thread, copied your photo, and pasted it here for you to look at. I thought I had new and relevant material from a different forum....... you're all over the interwebs. Anyway you're correct, I got my X models mixed up. So for verification, I found Almas photo of the back of the Romeo 1 co witnessing the Dot and the front sight...... that's what you want to see right? If your battery happens to go dead on your optic, you can line up Romeo's notch with the front sight and still be on target?
  4. Hold on, read this..The 2nd post claims that the R1 notch CO witnesses with the front sight of the x carry perfectly.http://sigtalk.com/showthread.php?t=256098
  5. The p320 RX models have iron sights matched to co witness the Romeo1 out of the factory. https://goo.gl/images/1qLJzu The X series will need taller sights.
  6. Does the Romeo 1 come in 2 different color reflective lens coatings? 99% of the time they are red, occasionly I see pictures of the R1 with a blue color lens. I can't find a distinction in the product details.
  7. I'm jealous, nice work! Take videos for us at the range. I just spent about 3 hours window shopping for the same pistol and it's acessories. Then I realized that micro stamping regulations were going to crush my dreams. I don't think the box is too big.That little guy has freedom to manifest his destiny. Or maybe room for a lefty.
  8. Hi Clamper, There are quite a few of us terminally hopeless classified window shoppers around here from Ca. I just spent the last several hours researching a pistol that I can't buy. On the bright side, this forum is full of experts. Its like a firearm encyclopedia with running commentary from the reader, the experts, and the peanut gallery.
  9. They do make conversion kits in fact. I'm looking for a loophole for Ca... Perhaps I can Frankenstein one to life from out of state parts to comply with the law.
  10. Jnr88, If you're still in the area, Richmond Rod and Gun Club has an action range, clays, and holds some USPSA events. Check the hours/weekdays of operation before you cross the bridge. Here is a link for 2018 http://www.richmondhotshots.com/ That's the only option in the east bay that I know of. Diablo rod and gun club is limited to air rifles, throwing knives, and axes right now (no joke). Lake Chabot rifle and trap range just closed permanently, and the San Leandro range is pretty lackluster.
  11. Wow this is an ancient thread. I was window shopping on the internet and I think a conversion kit would be fantastic for me. Where I shoot, the 22lr is on the house for varmint control, so the kit would pay for itself in no time. The problem is I don't have anything to convert. They don't make them for revolvers. Any suggestions or cautions on a LEFTY friendly, 9mm platform and a solid 22lr conversion kit? I realize there are several, I'm just looking for a few quick model and kit combos that work or, even better, a list of the ones that don't work. Thanks
  12. You guessed it, I live in California. Apparently they don't make exceptions to the state law for this sport. I suppose the bright side is that 3 Gunners in California, will by necessity, become Master Reloaders since they are so short stacked. The good news is, I spend the fishing season in Southern Oregon on the Williamson River at my own private 24-hour shooting range, Aka, mom and dad's ranch, which is nice... So, Californians, tell me what you know about ranges, clubs, smiths, and events in the Bay Area. Oregonians, how's your 3 gunning experience going? What's happenning in Southern Oregon? Any good three gun races? Restaurants? Bars? Fishing holes? (Klamath falls, Medford, Bend).
  13. Has anyone heard about the reliability of the M3K "Freedom Series"? It's the new Stoeger lineup with a 10 shell capacity mag. I'm weighing the options between models and wondering if it's better to go with the M3000 then add the Nordic +6 extension.
  14. I've seen guys who got a little carried away with their grinders have to come in with a TIG welder to add material. Then machine, grind, and sand it back to the original tolerances
  15. How do you like it so far? A few people have mentioned the Franchi to me as well, I haven't had time to research that one yet. It's definitely on the list. I've been looking at this HK 3. Seems pretty bomber. It just needs some minor loading port grinding, a Nordic Components mag extension, follower, then a few cheap part swaps with Belini. trigger springs, extractor, extractor spring, some minor polishing of the magazine, and they say it should be ready to go.
  16. I made a few phone calls could cruise by Dick's Sporting Goods and order one of these... For 550$ that M3K 3 gun version looks like it has a pretty good head start on the build.
  17. Steve, thanks for sharing, that was awesome! I really needed a light-hearted, feel-good, story. I'm going to see if any of those are in my vicinity. That'll work for me, I don't need a classic, just something that functions. That would leave a lot of financial headroom for other gear and upgrades. I'm realizing that this sport is one where you pay to play.
  18. Yep, I almost ordered all of the goodies in their blue competition package last week. I'm going to call them back in fact. Those folks run nothing but Mossberg. I'll see if I can get anything difinitive. Maybe they will reveal the great mystery of Jerry. Do I need to avoid a certain window of fabrication? Hopefully they will say something like, "it's easy, avoid the models produced in Connecticut during 2014, our foreman was blind and he fell into the foundry one day and no one noticed. So we had a bad batch of steel that year."......
  19. Thats good to hear Wgj3, I know they can purr like a kitty when they are happy. Out of curiosity, which Marine spacer did you get from Ore3on?
  20. I saw that thread High Power Jack, I read almost everything about the pro in this forum that I could find last night. That was a ton of everyone's hard earned information. Thank you all for sharing your experiences, knowledge, and curse words. At this point, I figure I have time to do some research and explore my options. I will be here reading for a while.. if anyone has any suggestions, advice, or you see something in the classifieds that might work, chime in here. . I'm totally open to suggestions at this point.
  21. I know exactly what you're talking about Frankly. I'm sitting here looking at Benelis going... well I drive a Ford..... I have nothing against Italy..... I like pizza. I sure wish Remington didn't go belly-up. If I buy a used one would that be treason?
  22. After doing a lot of reading, I'm having second thoughts about the JM Pro 24".... almost half of the technical shotgun thread is dedicated to troubleshooting or attempting to chase the Gremlins out of that gun. It doesn't instill a whole lot of confidence. I'm fairly mechanically inclined and don't mind spending time and money modifying things, but after reading through all of the tweaks and fixes, I see a lot of mossberg's for sale... I realize, many of those posts are several years old. Does anyone know if the later jm pro models have improved in reliability? Please chime in if you have any insight or opinions . I'm supposed to pick it up today... or I could go in another Direction. Please advise

  24. Luckily I stumbled across this forum researching the 930 Jm Pro. What a treasure trove of info! You folks really know your Jerrys. I pick mine up tomorrow, really looking forward to tweaking it into submission. Getting the dremmel and polishing kit ready. Thanks for doing all of the legwork. Cheers!
