  1. Wonder if they plan on selling the comp alone for those who already have a 10.5” barrel lying around? i have a 10.5” I thought of doing an SBR build with, then decided to order a lightweight extension from Taccom but this new 10/16 has me thinking. Especially the post above comparing it to a JP 16” barrel - which I currently run.
  2. Slides and barrels also make think this is also to allow people who build their flocks from the ground up to be allowed into the sport with more freedom maybe?
  3. Wonder if the rule changes are so that Alien gun can be compliant for each division?
  4. I used to have this happen with my AR9. I installed a taccom feed ramp to my upper and it hasn’t happened since, could be part of the issue.
  5. Plus, a designated lower has a more conventional mag release which means faster reloads compared to the MP5-style paddle release of those AR adapters.
  6. How are the recoil characteristics of this setup and what PF are you running? I've seen some guys run SBRs but unsure of their PF and there's quite a bit of muzzle rise when compared to 14.5-16" setups.
  7. Is this like an awkward modern attempt on a Thompson?
  8. but how many USPSA/PCC matches have shots out to those distances. While I understand wanting to have good groups out that far, I don’t see it mattering for most stage setups, especially 100 yards.
  9. Xtreme 147 RN 3.2gr Titegroup 1.15" OAL Makes about 138pf in a 16" barrel (these are all my usual CO loads if I'm not running Blue Bullets 147s at 3.0gr of TG) Soft shooting Blue Bullets 125gr RN 3.6gr Titegroup 1.14" OAL Makes 143pf in a 16" barrel verified at A8 chrono stage A bit more oomph but faster cycling and helps with dot bounce Both loads are very accurate; slightly over the 135 you're looking for, especially the 125gr load but the xtreme was a good dual-purpose load
  10. I’d estimate roughly 3500 rounds between the first time a spring broke in March of 2019 and the second spring breaking last week.
  11. They're live on the website finally. The most odd thing I noticed is that a 170mm magazine with a standard basepad is $157 but a 170mm with with their 7" extension is only $20 more. Maybe it's because these extensions are specifically for their steel glock mags and not to be used on polymer ones so cost is different, idk. Their 170mm mag with the 7" extension will get you about 56 rounds AT $177 while the 140mm mag with the 7" extension will get you 50 rounds at $160. So there isn't a totally massive difference in round count and you're looking a price swing of about $15-20 between them so it's not awful I suppose.
  12. Hey all, So in the past year I've had this happen to me on two occasions, luckily not at any major matches but it still is a good way to blow a stage at a local match. I'm running a stage and suddenly "click", rip charge handle back thinking it's a misfire "click" again...At first I thought my firing pin itself was broken however after I pulled the bolt carrier apart I found that the firing pin spring itself was getting beat so much that the legs of the spring were getting crushed/peened and breaking off therefore the broken pieces would move around in the channel, cause the firing pin to stick and not fire. Once the firing pin and spring were removed, I found the small bits of metal sitting on the bench. I'm running a JP bolt (JPBC-9SP) and a CMC PCC trigger with an ICRW firing pin, this has also happened with my JP firing pin. I know now to keep extra springs in my range bag and luckily they're cheap as hell. Do you think this is a hammer spring issue putting too much force on the firing pin/spring or is this just a semi-regular wear item?
  13. Hey all, I know the worlds of triggers and comps can be a never ending debate especially in the PCC realm, but on a PCC trigger post on this forum I've seen Jard triggers mention a couple times. While I'm content with my CMC PCC trigger, I'm definitely curious in the Jard as they offer both flat and curved triggers ranging from 1.5 to 5 lbs with adjustable sear engagement plus over/pre-travel adjustments. So I'm asking, for those of you who have used Jard triggers in your PCC, what are you thoughts and experiences on them? Please keep this to Jard only! I know it could quickly turn into hiperfire this and geissele that and so on; I'm strictly looking for Jard experiences. Thanks!
  14. https://www.speedshooter.com/product_detail.cfm?id=CE-PCC-MP&coda-evolution-swift-pcc-magazine-pouches- Code Evolution 5.5" PCC mag pouch is great for big sticks especially with extensions.
  15. +1 to this. I run the same exact setup with 143pf ammo (16" barrel) and the rifle runs great. I'm pretty sure it even ran all the way down to 105pf 147gr when testing different loads and still worked, sluggish but works.
