  1. It appears they are hit and miss. For range blasting that would be fine. For defense or competition, you'll need to change the guts out Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  2. But no matter which way it's facing, the softer end will collapse first. At least the way my brain works it should Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  3. For 38, sure. 9x25 is a different beast. The Smith, and the guy at Dillon that developed the cartridge recommended starting with 13#. As for orientation, I don't think it matters, the lighter wound coils will collapse first, no matter what Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  4. I used green. I hear it has the holding power of red, but no need for heat. But I might have to go red. I used blue on the grip screws on my 10mm and they'd come loose, even with blue, after a day at the range. I'll monitor these with green and see if I need to go red, which I might just do. These screws only have maybe two threads in the frame Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  5. Note to self. Loctite screws. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  6. Man, I'm really beginning to love this gun. I need to drill and tap a few more holes for more screws, knock the irons out, get my zig racker installed, and now find a new holster/hanger. It looks like the daa will be my only/best bet. That, and shoot it, a bunch Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  7. Durr. I even was holding my gun, and imagined having the mount over it, cycled the slide slowly, but forgot the mount will not move with the slide. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  8. That all makes sense. Right now ejection is at about 3:00. Looking at the pictures of other guns WTF the rts2, the mount is right above the ejection port, which is further back than where I anticipate mine to be. Glad to know, I likely won't run into issues, only getting everything mounted and shooting it will tell Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  9. That's a good point about the slide. I'm already working with not the best slide, so I don't want to weaken it any more. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  10. from what ive seen and heard, the most common functionality issue with adding an optic to a gun is making sure the case clears the port and the mount. The gun im building has a 10mm auto parent case, so its rather large. How does one adjust to this change? lowering and flaring the ejection port, plus changing the face of the ejector?
  11. His prices really dont look horrible. I think Ill go to him. what ive got is nothing fancy, so i might not, he seems rather high end. I cant wait to get the dot mounted, and spend hours and hours getting used to a dot.
  12. I had a similar experience yesterday. had a new load, i dont have a block to gauge my rounds, since id have to get it custom made from my chamber, and i made the mistake of not checking the rounds in my barrel before i cranked out ammo. in practice i had maybe 1 in 30 failures to return to battery which i could live with, match day came around, it was 2-3 per MAG.shot 3 of the 4 stages like that. stage 4 comes around, yep, the classifier, and i cant get more than 2 rounds out. called it quits after what seemed like 2 minutes and cycling through like half the mag in the dirt. after i called it the RO came up to me and told me he would have quit after the first stage. I drove 2 hours to shoot, not to turn around and go home. I ranked that match 15 out of 18. one of which dropped out, and another below me was a senior lady who was shooting her first match with her husband. it was abismal. but, like you, i had fun. and learned a lesson. The match before that, i learned my gun becomes a single shot at the slightest hint of rain. not sure why...
  13. That makes sense. I just bought the cheely and zig racker. Since I got a basically factory p16, I'll need the slide milled for the racker, and probably flat topped for the mount to fit. Any good places to send it to? Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  14. What's the reasoning behind a detent over a set screw? I was thinking a set screw would be the superior option Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  15. I'm putting together my first open gun. I'm looking for an optic mount for an rts2, with a blast shield, I also see a number of different slide rackers, they appear to all have the same dovetail, and they have numerous shapes. Is there one that's prevalent? I also need to find someone to cut the slide for the racker and flat top it, etc. I know there's a lot in this post, but these things I don't really understand what makes one better than the other Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
