I'm new to the forum, but have been reading as many threads as possible regarding my situation. Instead of hijacking someone else's thread, I figured I would just start my own. I am just in the beginning phases of my journey into competitive shooting. There are several divisions I think I would like to compete in, PCC being one of them. PCC is also the main division I don't currently have a set up for.
After my own research, coming from this forum, YouTube / Instagram, and professional shooters such as Max Leograndis, Josh Froelich, and Keith Garcia, I have settled on my top three choices. These are a: JP GMR-15, SIG MPX PCC, or building my own PCC.
I'm a firm believer in quality over quantity, as well as buy once, cry once. Excluding the optic, I expect to spend around $2000. I am okay with it being a little more or a little less.
My number one option right now is to build my own PCC. My main problem is that I am inexperienced in the PCC world. I have built my own ARs, but PCC seems to be a different story. I need help with a build list. With PCCs, I have read that you want to keep the same manufacturer on as many parts of the gun as you can. The most important parts being the BCG and buffer system. I am okay with it being majorly parts from one manufacture like JP, if that is the best thing to do. I tried searching for Max's build list to check out some products he recommends, but I couldn't find it anywhere.
The second option is a toss up. The JPs have a great reputation. Basically everyone that shoots one loves it and brags about its reliability. And it takes Glock mags. I only own Glock handguns, so this is a huge plus. I've also read great reviews of the new SIG MPX. While it has had its issues in the past, everyone seems to love the new generation. I have read many posts from former JP owners that moved to the new SIG after shooting this version.
While I know these two are great out of the box guns, both being able to out shoot my abilities, I would change things in both. The stock and trigger in the MPX. Possibly the stock, trigger, and handguard of the JP. This is the main reason why I want to build.
Anyways, I am looking for any information, recommendations, help, etc. that anyone here is willing to provide!
