  1. I ordered and received three new Glock 17 mags and 3 Arredondo extensions. Installed them and tested them out today and they work great! More use will really show how they perform, but so far I am very happy with them. The Arredondo extensions, when installed, are extremely secure. 23 rounds fit in the mag and function well. It is pretty difficult to get that 23rd round in the mag. If I was using these and performing mag changes with the slide forward and a round in the chamber, I would only load them to 22. When loaded with 23 rounds, you cannot press down the top round in the magazine at all; there is absolutely no room left in the mag and the spring is fully compressed. I tried loading a full 23 round mag into the gun with a round in the chamber and the slide forward and it was quite difficult to seat; not something I would want to do on the move because I'd be likely to fire the next round then end up with a mag on the round and an empty gun. All-in-all, very satisfied so far and I really like the way this mag/extension combo looks and performs.
  2. Wow! LOTS of great info. I am surprised that the TTI and Arredondo fit on a stock Glock 17 mag and are still under 141.25 mm for Carry Optics Division. I'm going to look over all of this info again and I will probably buy one each of a couple that have been mentioned to try them out. Thanks all.
  3. I was going to buy some Arredondo +5/6 mag extensions for my Glock 17 mags, but I believe it will make them too long for Carry Optics Division. What mags or mag/mag extension combo is best for a Glock 17 in Carry Optics Division? Should I just get some of the factory Glock +2 extensions, or is there a better option? Thanks all.

    Is the OZ9 only cut to accept Trijicon RMRs, or can it accept other red dot optics? I am looking at picking one up, but this is a concern of mine. Thank you.
  6. I have a Fowler Industries Glock 17 with a grip chop to 19 length. I can't find anything in the USPSA rules that state this modification is prohibited, but I wanted to check to see if anyone is running a similar gun or if there is something in the rules that I overlooked. Thanks all.

    I don't think it is legal with the magwell. Someone please correct me if I am wrong. I got to handle one of these today at the local gun store and it felt REALLY good. I am thinking of picking one up for carry optics and as my carry gun soon. Hopefully some time this year.
  8. My overview of the Nighthawk GRP double stack 9mm is live on YouTube. Check check check it out! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3rotOBECSms I've got more guns n gear in the pipeline and plan to put out a lot more content, so stay tuned!
  9. As has been expressed throughout this thread, there are good options at a lot of different price points. I am one that likes 1911s for their aesthetics almost as much as I want it to be built well and run as close to 100% reliably as possible. For this reason, I tend to gravitate to Nighthawk, Wilson Combat, Ed Brown, and Guncrafter Industries. All of these start around the $3000 mark. Dan Wesson is also putting out some great 1911s at a slightly lower price point. I currently have a Guncrafter Industries Hellcat being built, just hope it makes the 43 ounce weight limit for single stack. If not, I will likely have a gun built specifically for that division. If you haven't checked out Guncrafter Industries, definitely give them a look. Like Wilson Combat and Nighthawk, they are located in Berryville, Arkansas. The owner, Alex Zimmerman, worked for Wilson for many years, then wanted to do his own thing. They are putting out 1911s that are every bit as good as a Wilson, Nighthawk, or Ed Brown and have some unique models and features.
  10. Ok I’m not sure if the Hellcat is allowed in single stack. It has the added weight of the big “bushing”, but I believe the barrel is pretty standard. Another question - in limited division, are the 21 round STI mags legal, or would that throw me into open? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Absolutely nothing wrong with any of the 1911s mentioned, and we sure are spoiled with all of the options and manufacturers putting out various 1911s these days, but I think I am going to have Guncrafter Industries build me a Hellcat Government 9mm for limited 10 and single stack. Definitely an expensive gun, but man they are cool! I’m having a great time getting into competitive shooting and it’s costing me a good bit of money as well lol. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
