    Gen 4 Slide

    @galt11 In that case, you are even further limited in your available options as it relates to optic cuts. The most commonly available option in an already milled aftermarket slide is the RMR/SRO footprint. I don't believe anyone makes an aftermarket Glock slide cut for any of the Sig optics or Cmore micro red dots. I'd suggest you first consider what optic you would want to run and then look at available manufacturers. An alternative would be to try and buy an M.O.S slide (stripped or complete) for either the 17 or the 34 (or both) and have the flexibility to run different optic

    Gen 4 Slide

    It might depend on what optic your looking to mill for. For instance, some shops don’t mill for the Romeo 3 Max/XL. I’ve had good results from Primary Machine and Jagerwerks but there are plenty of great shops out there.
  3. How many rounds do you have on the Justice? Any issues so far?
  4. Congrats on the finish and being ahead of the curve on your goals. Probably now safe to say that the title of the thread and some of the discussion here have been proven. Maybe the G26 becomes the hot ticket in CO in 2021?
  5. Curious as well, looking to upgrade to these in plastic. Could anyone that has them comment on their use in the bullets out configuration?
  6. First, the RL1100 does not come with a bullet feeder. There are places you could back order an RL1100 with no dies or caliber conversion, but truthfully the $ may not make sense unless you have particular dies you like that are not Dillon ($1,850 for small primer unit with no dies or caliber conversion, add $130 for caliber conversion, $76 for Dillon 9mm carbide 3 die set). So in terms of cross-over from 550 - 1050, not a whole lot there for you other than dies. They use 2 different style case feeders and while you can set the 550 up with a bullet feeder, you are then stuck with
  7. Heck if anyone in the Northeast wants to spend $600 on 2K Federal Small Pistol Primers I'll drive them to your house! (just kidding, unless....) I do wonder how many of those Gunbroker auctions never finalize, seems like a huge uptick in Non-rated buyers.
  8. Well that’s one way to introduce yourself here. I’d say if you didn’t have the decency to help your squad tear down a stage for what, maybe 15-20 minutes after shooting (and that’s being conservative), then you should probably find a different hobby. I’m sure if you expressed that opinion to the range staff, they’d tell you thanks for showing up but we don’t need your match fee. As others have said, the match fee in no way represents the work needed to put on the match.
  9. As Sethdaniel05 said, once you have the appropriate guide rod for the Gen 5, the springs don't differentiate between generations.
  10. It absolutely can, just pick the machine shop of your choice. Just remember though, once it's milled for a particular optic footprint, that's what your stuck with. Some people elect to buy an aftermarket slide to retain their stock factory slide, but it is not necessary.
  11. I would vote to keep the 550 but belus has a point re: selling high right now and buying back later on if your needs change. Think about how many people had no interest in reloading, now suddenly do and depending on the election they may be dumping all of that stuff in a year. Reloading is work and some of those people will choose not to continue that work in the future. So if money is tight now or could be better applied to components (hopefully at somewhat reasonable prices), sell high and try to buy low in the future. As for precision, the 550 or the 750 will load as precise
  12. These are just my thoughts, no concrete evidence to back this up: 1) Steel Challenge truly has become a niche unto itself; I believe it used to be thought of as a sideshow to USPSA or additional practice, but now it can fully stand on it's own. Therefore, dedicated participants are moving into areas that either a) attract more sponsorship or b) are easier/cheaper/faster to shoot (see below) 2) The lower barrier to entry for Rimfire and lack of movement (compared to USPSA or even IDPA) has encouraged more Junior and even family participation 3) The cost and availability o

    Glock 34 Trigger

    Springs are inter-changeable (to some extent, ISMI vs. Wolff) when you get an appropriate guide rod. Carver Custom has a pretty extensive selection and Jager Products has some options as well.
  14. This is actually a whole new product, different from the previously released Primer-Pro Collator. More akin to the FA Vibra Prime
  15. Interesting new primer filling tube option from Double Alpha I stumbled across this morning. Who wants to be the first to buy one and provide a review? https://www.doublealpha.biz/us/primafill
