  1. I changed the slide stop out and it fixed the issue. As a matter of fact, I took it out yesterday and tried a half-dozen different Wilson mags and it ran great with no more stuck mag issues.
  2. I have started spraying some Otis Dry Lube on a q-tip and rubbing it around the edge of the chamber on my X-Ring and PCC both. I have not had a single feed or extraction issue since I started doing that. I also sonic clean the bolt after each match and then lube with the same dry lube. No burned powder residue or anything is present after shooting a few hundred rounds, so that is one of the things I really like about the dry lube. It makes my cleaning process seem almost cosmetic.
  3. I am in the same boat. I had been using Mini Mags and tried the clean ammo. I really like the lack of lube on it. It seems to keep everything much cleaner, and I have had no malfunctions with it.
  4. I have started using it. It is a handy app. I like being able to see right away if I just had a new personal best time on a stage.
  5. I like the calculator too. I like knowing how far from the next classification I am.
  6. I just put a Wiland USA PCC barrel on my AR9 and was able to shoot a match for the first time with it today. That little barrel is the real deal. It weighs 15oz and felt like I had put a pivot point on the rifle just in front of the mag well. This is a Steel Challenge gun, and it made it handle great. No affiliation with them, but they are a great bunch to deal with and produce a really nice product.
  7. I have seen one shooter try using gloves so far. He was having an awful time getting a solid grip due to sweating heavily, so he tried a glove on his non-trigger hand. It didn't seem to help.

    .380 ACP

    What's even worse is when the junk makes it all the way through the loader and into the ammo box. I had a round bring a stage to a screeching halt in my PCC. It didn't fire, and wouldn't extract either.
  9. I have a Kidd single stage on my X-Ring and it runs great.
  10. I enjoy having friends in my squad. I am not sure that it really impacts my shooting, but it may help a bit with the first stage jitters.
  11. Smae as the rest, I called and they had my code right away. I wonder if it isn't just another step to filter out the folks who don't follow up?
  12. I would have to question whether they also won't allow RFRO, RFRI, RFPO, and RFPI since they also are bagged and unbagged. The only complaint I have heard about PCC is that they can be hard on the targets with full power ammo. One place I shoot rotates the target faces between matches to keep them from becoming concave.
  13. Do you think it might have gone bang due to being slightly out of battery due to an excessive OAL? That probably would allow things to cycle and pick up the next round.
  14. I think that is probably what happened with him. He was most likely more cognizant of his movement with the boat anchor on his leg.
  15. I was squadded with a guy who had his foot in a boot and decided to move instead of take the penalty. He set his personal best on OL that day.
  16. Good advice on the weight. A steel frame 1911 gets there pretty quick.
  17. Still waiting on mine as well.
  18. I wonder if the numbers seem low because of so many shooters at tier one matches not being members of SCSA? I knkw at my local matches we have many non-members that shoot matches, so I assume their scores go unposted. Several of them are B or higher in their scores..
  19. Thanks. I have got to have a set of those.
  20. Who makes these base pads? I really like them.

    What bullet are you shooting? Profile plays a huge part in what will and won't plunk. For example, in my X5, a Berry's 147 fp has to be seated to 1.08 to plunk, but a Berry's 147 rn will plunk at 1.15.
  22. I had this happen with the 17 round mags that came with my Legion. My only solution was to download a round. Standard X5 21 round mags didn't cause the issue. I assume that I am just going to have to get the springs broken in.
  23. I had the same issue. I was interested to see what the mount looked like.
