  1. Probably not a many people have tried them all. I have two Smoke's and love them and would buy another from them in a heartbeat. As for length, we are using the 12", I grab right out to the end but never wish for longer.
  2. This. I load to 1.120 with 124gr and never had an issue with my Goliaths. I had thought to test longer OAL but I'm so happy with the loads I have, I lost interest to tinker for now.
  3. I bought my first JP before the Gen3 MPX was out with any feedback. After locals struggled with Gen 1/2, I thought it safer. I then bought a 2nd and made sense to stick with JP. So far the Gen3 MPX sounds reliable and if thats the case I'd say its just personal preference. Only two data points I can provide is both my JPs have been 100% reliable and I recommend them to anyone that asks.
  4. Like you, I don't think it's meant to be truly rude or harassment. However, its so strange as a new person that it's so persistent. I came from car racing where they introduced new classes and new people running that were not ribbed like this at all. I certainly see teasing comments about anyone running SS and L10 but its much more friend to friend instead of stranger to stranger. That said, the amount of things I learned in my first 6 USPSA matches in terms of PCC articulation for various ports, leans, etc is amazing. The things that just were so hard to deal with at the first event are so much easier now and I wonder if some of those that move on don't put the effort in to work those.
  5. From talking to locals a lot of people try PCC and realize it's not quite as easy as one might think compared to a pistol, results driven disappointment. They eventually go back to the pistol mechanics they are comfortable with so it makes sense for that crowd especially CO would be a likely division to try. I find CO very interesting myself but built my GF a Q5 SF for her to try it first and me keep working on my PCC and on occasion Limited.
  6. One thing I don't get because I came into USPSA for PCC is the butt hurt. So many and I do mean many passive aggressive comments about rifles at a pistol match, magazine size, etc from people I've never met before but within two matches I realized the comments had little variety but just a lot of repetition. I have thick skin so I just ignore them as excuses for their performance but I wonder how many people find that to be a turn off or is it that much of a local phenomenon that only I deal with.
  7. I bought mine originally for gaming, then realized I just enjoy them more than my .223 AR. I like them so much I've had 4 variants and I think I might eventually try a 5th.
  8. I have two Taylor Freelance magwells on our GMR15s. We love them and they work perfectly.
  9. Talk to a JP team shooter and see if they'll give you a discount code. If yes, direct from JP. They have amazing customer service and support. I'm a very happy customer.
  10. From my testing with my JP setup, before it was short stroked I could tell when I shot 147gr syntech, the action felt "lazy" and while I never had a problem locking up the trigger, it just didn't feel crisp. When I went to the short stroke setup, for me everything cycles fast enough I can do splits much faster than I can accurately do splits for most targets beyond 10yds. I run 124gr acme coated that hits 133pf in my 5" pistols, never checked with it does in the 14.5" since I'm switching my PCC to a JP ULW that only has 5.5" of actual barrel.
  11. We allow you to run two divisions here. I plan to start doing it soon as I'm getting comfy with PCC (my first USPSA division) and want to work on Limited or CO next. PCC is my first love but I want to be competent with a pistol as well in action shooting. Plan to keep scoring and pasting so no one feels like they have to carry my slack.
  12. I recall reading something like 12 or 14oz, basically just under 1lbs.
  13. I have a 12" on mine from Smoke Composites on both of ours. I think its the perfect length for me, the GF could get away with a shorter one as she's 5'.
  14. You will get fans of each to respond. I'll try to be as neutral as possible with the two I have experience with. My two JPs just run and can outshoot me. We had a PCC bowling pin match and everyone lost at least one round due to a malfunction of some kind each except for two, you guessed it, our two GMR-15s. The MPX shoots softer, I'm not convinced the dot moves any less than my short stroked JP but it certainly feel just very easy to shoot. I liked it and was the first PCC I was going to buy until I started to read and then was told how unreliable some have been. Our local GM had so many issues he gave up and got a JP. So while they aren't the cheapest, you can get a discount code from a JP team shooter (some on here or I can put you in touch with one) that is not an insignificant discount. I have no regrets spending the money and would recommend both the rifle and the excellent customer support I got when I wanted to buy accessories, a second rifle, and short stroke one. I will be ordering their fancy new lightweight barrel which likely won't make me any more competitive but I might enjoy it even more. I've never shot the CMMG, I love the design though. Several people here have experience with them and I think several like Memphis have modified them (or their action).
  15. Lots of people don’t bother. I was paranoid with my second JP since I bought it new and followed their video on YouTube for their super match barrel (AR15). I think it probably wasn’t necessary but both shoot great. It comes with barrel paste for the process.
