  1. My Guess is yes. On BUL Armory page you can find list of distributors worldwide. USA list is under this link http://bularmory.com/index.php?route=product/category&path=88&page=2
  2. I shoot major PF for IPSC 162-167 PF with load made on plated LOS 123 gn RN bullets, fiocchi small pistol primers and Vectan SP2 or Vichta Vuori 3N38 powders.

    Is it normal breach face wear ?

    Thanks for answers ?. This is my first 1911/2011 platform pistol so preferred to ask than to regret later ? As for the magazines I am using original Bul SAS magazines that came with the gun for trainings (shorter ones for 19 rounds) and Bul SAS long 170mm magazine for matches (it holds 27 rounds only vs 29 for sps - the difference is in the follower I guess as it is higher and locks slide back after last round). I am using as well SPS i "PARA" version of magazines which is little bit different construction and it holds 29 rounds (but does not locks slide back on last round due to different shape/height. I was told the Para version is used due to the size of the cut on the magazine that locks it in place. Not sure if it is correct but the magazines I have work just fine. Both long magazines are IPSC legal and in terms of operation they work just fine. Maybe I am using them too short to develop any problem. After roughly 3K rounds I did not have any magazine related malfunction (so far) This is the link to the long SPS magazine I use : http://spsshop.es/mgparaord/high-alummg-p-232.html
  4. I think I need help (or just the advice) from more experienced Open 2011 shooters. During cleaning I've noticed some wear on the breach face. The pistol behaves normally , shots fine etc so I do not know if this is normal for open 2011 or for example barrell was not fitted properly to the slide ? Pistol is BUL SAS II UR OPEN 9 lbs stock spring and I am shooting ammo with Power Factor of 162-167 (made on Vectan Sp2 or VV3N38 with 123 RN bullets). Is this normal wear (after 3K rounds roughly) ? If something is wrongly fitted what should I check ? Any advice appreciated

    Tell me about your HS507C

    I have holosun HS507C on my gun and I like it a lot. My initial concern was the window might be too small and/or that frame will obstruct the view but after roughly 2,5K rounds I can says in real life it is not an issue. The holosun was chosen due to the fact I have astigmatism and even with corrective glasses the dot on other brands was not clearly visible as expected. Holosun is not perfect for me neither but it was the best visible dot / pattern I could more less clearly see. I use two dot patterns depending of situation (dot and circle without the dot). With circle my impression is that I am able to acquire target faster but for some more distant targets dot seems to be better choice. Anyway 95% of the time I am using circle instead of dot. The only potential downside of the construction might be that you need to remove the sight to change the battery (which did not happen so far). The window could be a little taller but bulkiness of HS510C and potential ejection issues plus double sided mount made me decision to go with HS 507C. Overall I am very satisfied with it.

    Favorite powder for 9mm Major in open pistols

    I have two loads I am using with Bul SAS II UR Open 9mm 1. Bullet : LOS 123gn RN (copper plated), Powder: Vectan SP2 8,65 gn OAL 30,0mm (1.181) PF 162-167 depending of weather 2. Bullet : LOS 123gn RN (copper plated), Powder: VV3n38 8,05 gn OAL 30,0mm (1.181) PF 162-167 depending of weather Vectan SP2 gives more gas and compensator works very nice, it is quite clean but measuring it is very demanding. VV3N38 is even cleaner than Sp2 and softer in recoil very easy to measure still the 9mm case is almost full with 123gn bullet. Next powder for my elaboration will be Lovex D037.1 which is even more dense than SP2 and is cheaper and easily available in my country.
  7. I see no connection / gap between the compensator and the barell. I belive bul's material says it is one piece.
  8. Speedshooter has on stock (based on their webshop) few in short flat and short curved. Curved version seems to be similar in size to short flat if you accept the curved version. You can also buy small version and take some material off from the back of the aluminium shoe if the adjustment is not enough (on YT in one of Atlas materials it is also mentioned as option). I contacted the Geppert in germany and (mail@xline-geppert.de) and they claim they have medium and XS in stock. Mail them and let me know how it went. I am also considering to get their trigger
  9. You can ask for availability the manufacturer in Germany : http://www.xline-geppert.de/en/ There is also other shops that ship for example to europe: https://www.speedshooter.com/category_list.cfm?ID=TG&Triggers
  10. I was considering the heavy metal version but finally went with "regular" SAS II UR but without original mount to make the holes comaptible with any aftermarket optics mount and thumb rest (the original Bul mount has 3 holes only and the holes are IMHO angled not the mount). Did not see any problem keeping regular version on target its seemed to be even easier to transition from target to target. That's maybe personal preference but I have quite strong hands and it works just fine for me. Please let me know how your pistol works in the long run.
  11. Small update: After finding the shop that had the proper skills and machines to drill, tap the frame (stainless steel drilling/tapping, us tap sizes) and modify the mount I decided to make the holes in "non-bul" 5 holes pattern (0,375 inch between the holes) and US size screws (for convinience and change flexibility in the future in case of mount change). The red dot I use is Holsoun 507C (with Trijicon RMR mounting pattern) - as I see it better than other RDs due to my astigmatism and it has dot and the ring. For mount I've chosen JVIndustries mount for RMR to avoid making custom mount. It had some offset and was not exactly inline with barrel so side part of it had to be milled to center it (leaving around 0,6 mm clearance from the side of the slide) and side of the mount had to be milled to provide acess to RD's buttons. Finally after two weeks from collecting the parts I received today the parts and put everything together. Tomorrow I will be zeroing it ? Once more thanx for advice it helped me a lot to decide
  12. I have no intention to do it myself (although it seems a little bit tempting ?) I have no skills, no tools and no stainleess steel drilling knowledge. I am asking for specific dimensions as it can be drilled only once and I would prefer to have it done right. Drilling will be done by the experienced gunsmith with proper tooling but he has no open guns specific knwoledge so that's the source of the questions.
  13. Thx for the practical advice on screws size. I will either pick good quality M3 or look for M3,5 As for holes placement if the dimensions I provided are ok or I just put the mount on the gun, see if it clears the slide and drill the holes without overcomplicating ?
  14. Hello I am new owner of BUL SAS II Open pistol that was purchased without predrilled holes for the scope mount on dust cover. I am looking for the information/advice what are the typical dimensions / location of the holes that are drilled and tapped in the frame/dustcover. I've found some info in one of the threads and would like to verify if this is correct as I can drill the holes only once ;-) I am looking for 5 holes pattern with distance between them 0.375 inch ( there will be optics mount + thumb rest on side of mount) The distance from center of the slide stop hole to center of first hole for optics mount : 0.5 inch Distance of the holes from top of frame/dust cover edge 0.135 inch All distances above assume that I will use 5-40 screws. The issue is that I am in a "metric" country and the closest metric screwes are M3 (which have slightly smaller diameter than 5-40) so I could use M4 but those are roughly 0,1575 in diameter and seem to me too thick to make holse so close to dust cover edge (dust cover is stainelss steel) Now the questions are: 1. If the dictances I provided above seem to be ok ? 2. If the M3 screws are not to weak (assuming I will be using 5 holes mount) ? Should I consider M4 screws? If that will influence/increase the required distance from dust cover edge ? 3. What should be the minimal clearance between the bottom of the mount shelf and the slide ? I am awaiting for the mount at the moment that will be used with micro red dot / RTS2 size. My concern are potential extraction/jams. I would appreciate advice. K
