  1. Would anyone be willing to provide a rough width, distance from the front to the mounting holes and distance between the mounting holes measurement? Thanks
  2. I'd like to see how it holds up as a slide rider if someone could make it fit. Is it about 1/2" longer than the Cmore?
  3. Any updates on the optic? Does anyone know if the footprint is proprietary? Thanks
  4. Hey guys- How quickly does leading occur when dealing with an undersized bullet/oversized bore? I've shot about 300 .356" Gallant bullets and decided to slug the barrel before I make a big bullet purchase (hopefully on BF). There was some minor depositing but the barrel slugged at .3565" after a good cleaning. Probably 2k fmj down the barrel since the last cleaning. Thanks
  5. Large FOV, pretty bright, construction feels good, but in my personal opinion: total junk as a slide rider. I've had 2 fail with 100-300 rounds per unit. The 2nd one was right in the middle of a stage. The 3rd unit wont be going on a pistol. It may be great on an AR/rimfire/PCC but reliability on a CO gun, especially for a top tier offering, is not impressive. Warranty is good but when Vortex suggests I try a Venom as a replacement they might know something is up...
  6. Any thoughts on the TF Canik Brass back strap for a CO gun? Based on the design of the grip, I think it would be legal per Appendix D7 22.2. But D7 22 and special condition 5 have me wondering...
  7. Did you cut any coils off the the recoil spring? You may need to cut the spring down a little bit. Put a piece of tape on the slide and on the frame, with the slide held all the way to the rear (factory guide rod/spring installed) mark both pieces of tape. Next install the Glock guide rod/recoil spring and see if you can get the marks on the tape to line up. Coil bind could be limiting slide travel to the rear. My current set up: Stainless Gen 3 Glock guide rod with Gen 4 adapter ring (turned down a few thou to fit into the slide) #13 recoil spring with part of a coil cut off Cajun reduced power FP block spring, Glock reduced power striker spring (can't remember the weight off hand) FreedomSmith Pro waiting to be installed to replace the current Fat Daddy. Lost wayyy to much time fighting the trigger safety while trying to go fast. I'll add the split ring when I change out trigger shoes. Runs awesome. Had some light strikes with WWB 124 NATO but I don't like that stuff anyway. Good luck and enjoy!
  8. How do you like it so far? Would you say the 510 is worth the extra $150? Thanks
  9. I've got a CO gun that is direct milled for a Razor but they keep failing and I'd like to try something different. I'll email for the drawing. Thanks!
  10. Do you have a drawing of the Alpha 3 optic? Interested to know if it is longer off the front or the back (from the mounting screws holes) than the RTS2 or Razor. Thanks
  11. Would anyone be willing to provide me with some rough dimensions of their CZC RDS plate? OAL of the plate center of the mounting holes and optic holes (whatever model you have) from the front of the plate center of extractor pin hole from the front of the plate Kicking around some ideas with a machinist/gunsmith friend that include using a modified CZC plate. Thanks
  12. I was kidding. The slide should really go to Primary Machine or the like for a full CO treatment. An adapter plate would put the gun over weight as it only made it by .2 oz. I was trying to figure out why the previous owner had been running with the magazine break removed until I put it on a scale... It would be nice to run base pads in the future as well. Im on the fence about Vortex too. They have been pleasant to deal with and willing to warranty the optic no questions asked, but their suggestion to try a Venom seems like a round about way to avoid admitting the Razor isn't fit for a slide rider. The Vemon on my TP9SFx has been great but It's just not an option or what I want to hear for this situation.
  13. Seeing as you are local to me, maybe I found just the guy for the job... The last 2 Razors have only required 15-20 MOA down to get zeroed at 10 yds. Other options to fit the current optic cut: The RTS2 sounds hit or miss from what I read around here. The Sig Romeo 3 (same mounting pattern according to the multi optic red dot sight base drawing on the CZC website) but is much longer overall from what I can tell. I feel like all 3 are made in the same place, with the same terrible battery tray design. I made a pretty crude drawing on my lunch break today confirming (best I can tell) that an adapter plate to go from a Razor to an RMR (SRO) would not work. The threaded mounting holes in the plate for the RMR would occupy the same space as the heads of the fasteners that would be used to hold the plate to the slide (utilizing the existing threaded holes for the Razor.) Going Razor to Venom looked good for a quick second because they both have 14 mm centers between mounting holes, but the Razor uses bigger fasteners. So I'm back to drilling and tapping new holes in the slide to hold a conversion plate down, using a multi-plate system to avoid fasteners running into each other or paying real money for a real fix.
  14. Wow, the cut on that bottom slide is deeeep!
  15. Part of the way there... http://www.egwguns.com/pistol-and-red-dot-mounts/trijicon-rmr-sight-mount-for-blank/
