  1. One performance update is I’m at a match right now and I can tell you I regret my 10 yard zero since it’s about 8-10” high at 30 yards and I missed the hell out of steel Wasn’t thinking about the 6” of lost barrel length/twist at that distance when I set it up. Guess who’s changing zero after the match?
  2. I can’t find the post I found the info on for the life of me since I closed the tab but does anyone have any titegroup load data with 100gr plates bullets that will make PF for USPSA I saw 4.7 start and 5.0 max powder charge (luckily took a screenshot) but wasn’t sure if this was for pistol or PCC. I’m looking to try 100gr Xtreme in a Brekke 10.5” setup. If anyone can confirm charge and PF numbers it would be appreciated!
  3. I don’t see why it wouldn’t work with the A5. I think the whole point of the A5 tube was to not have to modify a bolt and it ensures reliability and proper trigger reset as the bolt can travel back a bit further for the reset. I tried the JP and ICRW (Gen 3 Mohawk) bolt in a regular carbine tube with the 5020SS and the trigger wouldn’t reset and once I switched to the A5 as Max had said, zero issues. I don’t know how much modification taccom does to their SS bolt. You could always just try it out and have an A5 tube on standby to install.
  4. Sorry for the delay, I wasn't getting post notifications on this for some reason! I wish I had experience with the 12.5" barrel but unfortunately not, I can at least shed light on my experience with the 10.5" build. That being said, here's my update after shooting it this summer! When I first set the gun up as you see in the original post, I ran it a few matches and initially was having a hard time adjusting from the 16" JP franken-build that was once my main gun. The dot movement and recoil was throwing me off, along with having less weight out front. Hones
  5. I’ve had zero problems with it and coating IRCW uses makes it a breeze to clean. I give a few sprays with breakthrough clean, wipe with a rag, good as new
  6. Both of my PCCs are franken-builds my original primary has become my back up - luckily I've tuned them so both run damn near identical given the different barrel lengths. Ideally a backup will match the primary but oh well. Current Primary PCC: Gibbz ambi lower (thanks to @Bdh821 bailing on his brekke build ) Brekke 10.5" Max Leograndis barrel with compXtension and smoke composites handguard combo setup ICRW Mohawk 3.0 Copperhead bolt Blitzkrieg 5020SS buffer with a 308 orange sprinco buffer spring in an A5 tube CMC 3.5lb PCC trigger Holosun 510c
  7. Hey all, Last year I shot my very first Area match at the 2019 EGW A8 match. I really wanted a jersey but they were for staff only and it’s shame because it was a great design. I emailed the match director from the older A8 site hoping they could share where the jersey cam from but no luck in response. Does anybody have an idea of who made them or how I could get my hands on one?
  8. It guarantees it won't break/need as much maintenance as your MPX
  9. So on Instagram, Brekke offered multiple setups. The list I got on was for a Brekke-supplied barrel, with the CompXtension installed, pinned, welded, and blended, AND the smoke composites handguard. You can buy the CompXtension individually and install it on your own barrel. You can also send him a barrel and have him install/pin/weld/blend the barrel and purchase a handguard separately, there's plenty of ways you could go about this setup honestly. The 1lb 9 oz is the full barrel WITH handguard and mounting hardware. It's pretty crazy how light it is all together.
  10. Hey all, I'm sure most of you have seen the current setup Max Leograndis is running from Brekke Custom by now. I ended up getting on the first list for the full barrel/extension/handguard combo and I gotta say I'm pretty impressed. I decided to try it out as my main upper and have my 16" franken-JP build as a back up should the need arise. The quality and finish is killer, and the weight is amazing. I ordered the 10.5" barrel (there is a 12" option) with the Smoke Composites rail and the total weigh is 1lb 9 oz. My build is mostly complete although I'm waiti
  11. 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.
  12. 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?
  13. Wonder if the rule changes are so that Alien gun can be compliant for each division?
  14. 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.
