  1. I had a stock edge and put a 17lb main spring and 12lb recoil spring. It seems to have helped a little bit.
  2. I’ve been thinking about doing something like this. Did you have any experience building guns before? Did you need any specific tools?
  3. If you’re going to shoot limited starting with a Glock knowing you’re going to transition to a 2011 you may want to consider a double alpha holster. You’ll likely end up with a race holster anyway and you can just change the inserts vs buying a new holster to fit whatever gun you end up with.
  4. The last ones I bought I ended up buying the complete mag because they were the same price. You have a mag that you can use until your other pieces come in. Or just leave it that way if you want.
  5. I have standard sti mags and replaced the base plates/followers/springs myself. They have all worked 100% with parts from STI, Dawson, and Taran. I’m currently using sti tubes ($60 on Dawson for either a tube or complete magazine), TTI bade plate, and various springs and followers. So I have about $100 per magazine. So the $110 for a Taran magazine seems like a good price to me.
  6. I like blue bullets. You can order 250 round sample packs to make sure they work before ordering a case.
  7. I have 3 of these and they work fine aside from the springs. Currently mine are needing replaced because they are shorter than the tube and I’m starting to worry about reliability. Ets will replace springs free of charge but I’m thinking of changing springs to get a little longer life.
  8. I had the same issue. I took a file and filed the back of the follower and the back of the magazine extension to make the transition easier.
  9. The rule book has .357 Sig now listed as a caliber capable of making major. I thought this as well until I looked.
  10. I have this set up for 40 and I can get 21 reloadable. You’ll just want to make sure your slide stop is deactivated as mine wasn’t and it locked the slide back with 1-2 rounds left.
  11. Ideally once a week for practice, but that's not been happening lately. I usually take about 200 rounds and work on mini USPSA stages that force me to use a skill that I noticed was lacking in matches. Dry firing doesn't happen as much as it should, but it helps a lot.
  12. I am considering one of these for a new build. Anyone have experience? Thanks
  13. I've shot a few different makers of coated bullets and the coating varies in thickness on some of them. I have settled on the blues because they have a thick coating and shoot well out of my STI, PCC, and Zev Glock barrel; however, another one of my Glocks dislikes them. This is likely just a load development issue that i don't want to work out. I have used or seen black bullets, Acme, IbejiHeads, and SNS and they all seemed to have a good coating. The blues were just cheaper so thats what I ended up with.
  14. Unfortunately thats about as far from me in WV as you can possibly get. But i believe I have decided to save up and buy a 1050 when I finish with school this spring. Hopefully I have enough ammo loaded to make it until then.
