  1. ..."jack hammering my shoulder" - a 9mm does this? No expert here but I've shot a lot of different PCCs and the recoil was never hard at all - definitely lighter on some than others but not an earth (or shoulder) shattering difference. Is there a specific reason that the combination of parts you used made the recoil heavier?
  2. I don't see them often at the matches I attend. I do remember the trigger being.....marginal. If you do go that route, get one that takes Glock mags - many options and pretty cheap. Good luck.
  3. Good topic - where did you take your length measurement? I would think the important dimension would be from the underside of the "head" to the tip. I'd also be curious to see how much they wear down and if that affects reliability. Or maybe they break first. I'll measure my JP after work today to add to the comparison. Thanks Phil
  4. If it has run perfectly for thousands of rounds with X buffer weight, why would it all of the sudden need to be changed? Mine runs with 0 tungsten, 5 steel, 1 and 4, 2 and 3 and 3 and 2 - no failures - although some changes in recoil impulse. Mags do go bad from time to time (I hear, can't say it has happened to me).
  5. I would think the nose dive issue is mag related. Most of the mag extension manufacturers say that you can get a bad mag from the factory and to try several if there are issues. I had issues with my GMR and the Goliath related to the OAL of the ammo but you're running stuff well within spec. Maybe try the Glock mags without extensions to see if there are issues. Good luck.
  6. What he said. BHO works on my Gen2 short stroke GMR-15 but I'm told it won't with other combos. I don't think I've ever needed it, I use big mags.
  7. There's a reason they are taking so long - they're the best. Email them and try to talk with them, they'll get you in the queue.
  8. I ordered extra heavy duty Ziploc bags from Amazon that do this job for me. Order 6 or 8 mil and look for a double closure. The exact ones I ordered are no longer available but many others are. I also leave a small (3"x 5") microfiber towel in the bag to give me something to wipe with. Good luck!
  9. I've had mine for a few years - don't really use it much honestly. It's been 100% reliable, seems well built and is really cool. Has a terrible trigger that everyone says will get better with time - we'll see. Not much in the way of aftermarket upgrades last time I looked. It's my bedside gun. Whether or not you made a mistake depends on what you want to do with it. Phil
  10. GMR-15 from JP has LRBHO. Works everytime.
  11. I'm not sure who makes the lightest PCC, that wasn't one of my goals when I bought my JP. Since then, shooting rimfire carbines at a steel challenge enlightened me to the advantages of a lighter gun. I bought the JP ultralight barrel - a 5" with a sleeve along with a Smoke composites 12" CF handguard - put it on a JP upper - the difference is unbelievable! The whole gun (GMR-15, with ACE stock, holosun 510C, magwell, short stroke buffer with steel weights) weighs 5lbs, 10 ounces (I think). The biggest difference is where the weight was lost - from the front of the gun. To me this is the b
  12. I have a Q5 SF Pro - stock except for a Precision Overwatch trigger. About 1500 rounds, no failures of any kind. I'll be really disappointed if it starts to act up. While I agree that a gun might not be "race ready" out of the box, it should absolutely be reliable. To me, failure 1 in 200 means you have a failure at every match, more or less and that means I can't live with it. I bought the SF because I was having issues with my Shadow 2 that I haven't sorted out yet, still working on it. Again, very disappointed to hear of your issues - I hope you get them sorted out.
  13. I own the Shadow 2 and Q5 SF Pro, I've shot the G34 but not many rounds. I feel like my S2 has a little better recoil feel than the Q5 due to the lower bore axis - it pushes straight back vs. a flip. Either one is insignificant in my opinion, especially with softer ammo. The Glock is not in the same league with either of these, a function of mass of the plastic vs. steel. I've left the stock grips on my Q5 but several friends have changed them to Loks and they say this makes it even more controlable. Good luck.
  14. I went with the Doublestar ACE ARFX (I think) - fixed stock, I never move it from fully extended and I like the rigidity. I'd love to have a "Fang" made for it.
