    Looks for Match

  1. I bought the Razor and it arrived this morning. All of this has been said by people far more skilled and experienced than me, but for what it's worth here are my initial impressions and comparison with my two prior scopes, the Burris mtac and Steiner p4xi. The mtac was my first lpvo, I got it 5 or 6 years ago and I've had the Steiner on another rifle for maybe 2 years now. I haven't owned any high-end stuff like kahles, swaro etc so I don't have match experience using scopes further up the ladder. The razor is pretty darn clear. I'm not wowed by the glass clarity because the Steine
  2. Now that the 1-10 razor is hitting the market, is the price of the 1-6 likely to drop? Are there any good seasonal sales or deals coming up in the next few months? I have seen the 1-6 for around $1k-1100 at times. Should I just get the viper? Is it really 85% of the glass quality for half the price? I shoot to 400 yards max locally. Thank you!
  3. You guys mind putting up some impressions once you get them please? Looking at it for carry optics.
  4. I'm also 6'5" so it makes sense that you'd be in the same boat as me. For 80% of shooters they probably don't have to worry about LOP as much, just pull the stock out a notch and go. I should make it clear that I'm a total FNG in competition shooting and you could fill a tanker with what I don't know. I might learn in 6 months that I have this all wrong. That being said, I try to pay attention and watch what the more experienced people say and do, and I can chime in with my direct experiences from classes or matches with some of the top folks. Flatland shooter, I agree
  5. I agree with you that in the picture it appears as though the stock is not fully extended on the buffer tube, HOWEVER, look at the distance between his chin and firing-hand thumb. It matches up with the Patrick Kelley video on length of pull or is even longer (3 fingers width distance). Link: In the picture, if Max were to reposition the gun such that the buttstock were parallel with his forearm while keeping the arm bent 90 degrees it appears as if it would approximately reach the crook of his arm / bicep. Further, if you look at his support hand, it is quit
  6. Great points here regarding proper stance / grip. I took John Mcphee's 100yard carbine class over the winter and my big takeaway from the slow-motion video analysis was that at the beginning of the class, none of the shooters had their body weight leaned forward enough nor were any of us holding the gun tightly enough or pulling the buttstock back vigorously enough into our bodies. The difference that correcting these two factors made in our group sizes (standing, kneeling and prone) by the end of the class was astonishing. The same applies to recoil control / double-tap speed when shooting qu
  7. I'm patient, I'll continue to shoot production or PCC until one of them hits and the initial bugs are uncovered. I'm sure Holosun will eventually release a larger window version of the 507 too. I thought the SRO was shipping already and the Romeo 3 Max was projected for july, but I would certainly believe that either or both could get pushed back. Making a dot durable enough to ride on pistol slides is hard.
  8. Picked up and shot the 17 yesterday. First time shooting a 17 or a gen 5, and it was a pleasant experience. I think I actually prefer the gen4 grip with finger grooves, but I do like the slight magwell flare and the trigger is better out of the box. Now I need an optic! SRO, DPP, or wait for the sig Max?
  9. Definitely search for MemphisMechanic on the CMMG, he seems to have the most experience with that platform and has several great posts about it. The bolt system is innovative but ultimately I went with a standard AR9 for the huge aftermarket support and lack of proprietary parts. I was making the same choice between CMMG/AR9/MPX and ended up with a Taccom complete upper on a QC10 lower. I have been very happy with it. Go look at the thread I started when I was making the decision and you can kind of see me work through it in real time in response to feedback. I don't th
  10. Thank you for the replies, I think I'm going to try out the 17 gen5 as I already have a 34 (gen4). Hopefully it will prove a nice middle ground between the long slide and the 19.
  11. The 45 MOS was just released at the NRA annual meeting and has already shipped to dealers. Why do you say the 17 slide length should be the minimum? Should I get the 34 gen 5 mos? If so why?
  12. I have a Glock 34 gen 4 that I use in production, however I've been wanting to try carry optics. I'd like feedback on what to buy for the purpose. Choices are: 1) brownells RMR cut Glock 17 slide and put it on my 34 frame 2) glock 45 mos 3) gen 5 Glock 17 mos fs 4) gen 5 Glock 34 mos Today I handled (but did not shoot) a Glock 45, it was my first time holding a gen 5 and I really liked the upgrades. It seemed to me that the new gen 5 trigger is quite a bit nicer than the gen 4. It's a more significant difference than I had expected. I also liked the
  13. Thanks for the videos! I'd love to see more people posting their match or training footage to illustrate what they are saying. The retreat with weak hand on the rail and barrel pointed uprange while you run the other way makes complete sense. Max Leograndis has a video with the same technique. I would also love to see more PCC classes. Given the growth in the division I'd say there is a market, and the movement / problem solving is sufficiently different to pistol that it really needs a dedicated class.
  14. SRO vs sig romeo 3 max for carry optics? Does sig win based on wider window or does trijicon win due to durability for slide-ride plus compatibility with RMR milled slides?
  15. Any thoughts on this versus the new trijicon SRO? Looks like the window dimensions are similar but the sig is a little wider. SRO fits into the RMR footprint which is nice given the number of slides milled for that pattern.
