  1. Techwell for Foxtrot Mike FM-9. Peeled off the labels.
  2. I've had both and decided to stick with the SDP01/Shadow 1 configuration. It fits my hand better, points more naturally and I like the trigger reach in both single and double action better. the Shadow 2's weight and layout I would say definitely keeps it on target a little better for strings of fire. But again, the Shadow 1 just works better for any hands (which are not small) and preferences. Also, I can shoot my Shadow 1 in IDPA whereas the Shadow 2 is too heavy.
  3. Can kids make gasoline? Because that's my biggest cost.
  4. I agree with the Foxtrot. Just make sure you keep the ejector stable with the set screw. More importantly IMO is finding a reliable bolt. I've used, of all things, a hybrid Glock/Colt mag bolt from Pickett's Mill Armory, and it has worked with every trigger (from Geissele to POF to Rise to Hiperfire), barrel, upper, with dedicated 9mm lower and a 5.56 one with Stern Adapter. With hydraulic buffers and regular ones, and hasn't broken trigger or firing pin. It eats everything and not having any hangups has been key in several matches. Have two of them and they run like champs.
  5. That'll do it. I had a disco spring wear out on a trigger group....a Rise Armament IIRC...and it went full auto for a 3-4 rounds every now and then.
  6. I shoot a regular SP01 Shadow for SSP as well as Production in USPSA.
  7. Actually, the length it seems to add just ends up being the same as on a regular Mossberg pump because the Mossberg's receiver extends back a bit further whereas the Stoeger's does not. So it ends up being pretty much the same as on the Mossberg, a la it feels comfortably closer than stock.
  8. Just recently put one on mine. Heaven sent. Could not get along with the trigger reach of the original stock, so for the heck of it I Googled 'Stoeger M3000 Magpul Stock' (since I liked the Magpul on my Maverick pump so much) and bang it came up. Thought it was a mistake. Again....Heaven-sent!
  9. I run the RB5005. which is the 'carbine 3.25"" buffer with an extra power carbine spring and a wave spring in back, with a 12mm spacer to short stroke it just enough to clear last round lockback. Like Joey states, a sharp 'kick' but less dot movement. When I try heavier buffers and stronger springs that keep the buffer from hitting the rear, the gun feels like it's cycling slower and almost under water. And the muzzle sways up more. With this setup, I've got cushioning where it's needed at the extreme ends/stops of travel, but it's light enough to cycle fast and come back on target quicker. Also have a Limbsaver butt pad on my stock. Recoil isn't really noticeable when you're chugging along, but muzzle lift can affect you a lot.
  10. With a SAO trigger, yes that TRS can be more of a pain when reinstalling. Probably because the SAO trigger's 'rest' point is like the DA trigger being pulled way back to SA position. Did it enough times that it got easier in terms of positioning, but still a chore.
  11. Good to hear. Did it cure the friction on the slide?
  12. Romeo 1 has a pretty good sized window too. I like reflex sights on PCC's I use for competition because I feel less tunnel-vision. But for my all-around/defensive long guns, they're tube-type red dots for durability et al. Yeah when I shoot in bright sun with a red dot like the Venom on my pistol, I'm always surprised just how much I have to crank the dot.
  13. Wow that's surprising because I know mine gets plenty bright for sunny days. Maybe mine's a later manufacture for something. My C-More's by comparison are just visible enough fully cranked. For me though, nothing beats an etched black reticle on sunny days like on the 1X Primary Arms Cyclops that I have on my 5.56. Focused to my eye which is nice (have to wear corrective lenses for distance when using red dot), but granted it still feels more like a scope than red dot.
  14. Are you seating the rear of the sear cage in correctly? It can be a bit ambiguous at first until you get a feel for it, it usually needs to be pressed down as you're getting the safety lever back in. As GMP pointed out, nothing should require being forced in.
  15. I'm also left-eye dominant and right-handed when shooting pistols, but I've done so much long gun stuff since youth that I just squint my left eye and use my right with a rifle/carbine. Sometimes both eyes and just superimposing the red dot, depending on what I'm doing. But also makes me quite comfortable switching to opposite shoulder since my left/dominant eye feels right at home. Another red dot candidate that I'll put forward and don't see much here about is the Sig Romeo3. For those who like a more 'uncluttered'/less tunnel-vision peripheral view with non-tube reflex sights like an RMR or a C-More, the Romeo3 has a slightly larger and more round window like the C-More, but isn't as bulky so it's a bit lighter and more flexible with positioning. The included riser mount puts it right at that lower-1/3 height that many of us like so much. The dot is 3 MOA but seems closer to 4-5 MOA, and there's more brightness range than with a C-More. The quick release clamp holds and releases great. And again, that round window just feels very natural as you're picking things up quickly. The two-tone color scheme may turn some off aesthetically, but it really does make a very good carbine red dot that's fast and keeps your overall gun profile sleek. They're coming out with a 'Max" (Michel) version that is black and has a larger-window version too, but substantially more $$.
