  1. Thanks for th advice. The loading port has been opened up. I’ll take a look at the shell latch and lifter spring.
  2. I've been shooting a Benelli M2 for the last couple years without an issue. However, recenetly I've run into a loading issue. The bolt will lock back even though there are still shells in the tube. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  3. I have a critical capabilities lower. Does anyone know which taccom magwell works with the lower? TIA
  4. I have the AIM BCG also, and it's worked great. The only issue I've had was it, was the gas key came loose after about 2000 rounds. The gas key wasn't staked correctly. After getting it repaired, it's run flawlessly
  5. I have a Benelli M1S90 with the newer LPA ghost ring sights. Unfortunately during a match today the front screw that secures the rear sight came out and fell out during a stage. After looking around for it, it seems to have disappeared into the sea of brass, hulls and gravel that is the range. I haven't been able to find a place to order a replacement online, and haven't heard anything back from Benelli. Any suggestions on where to get a replacement screw, or the measurements would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance
  6. It doesn't work when dry fired. The striker does go forward enough to have the firing pin exposed in the breech face. When I rack it, I can hear the click, when the striker engages the sear. I think that the sear is not releasing the striker when the trigger is pulled, but I can't confirm it. (It's all good, I appreciate all the help I've gotten from the forums over the years)
  7. Thanks! I'll contact Dan Burwell and see if I can get a replacement one
  8. I have a m&p 9 that has a Dan Burwell Trigger job. Unfortunately too much dry fire without a snap cap has broken the striker. I dropped in a new one, but now it's not firing. Does anyone know if the striker is modified during the trigger job? Also any other suggestions to get my gun back up an running is greatly appreciated.
  9. I'm going to be a competition where I need a holster that covers most of the gun like a duty holster and a retention system. I want to use my SVI with a full length dust cover, but am having trouble finding a holster. Anyone know where I can find a holster that fits the bill?
  10. I just got back from the match, it was the first time I've been to the Sage Pistol League. Many thanks to all who helped put together the match and the RO's. The range was great, the stages were the right blend speed and accuracy (especially if you can't remember what color box your standing in). I can't wait for the Silver Buckle Match next year
  11. I think that's the entire point of the production division, a place where people can start shooting with what they have without breaking the bank. The glock, xd, and cz are all great platforms for prod. Find one that fits your hand, and go out and have fun.
  12. I did something like that during one of my first matches. Important lesson, make sure the paddle mag holders are secure before starting the stage. I shot the first array, then went to change mags. Whoops! I grab the mag from the holder, and it comes off my belt with the mag holder and another mag attached. I had to shake the mag holder off to do the reload, and off flying went the mag holder and the other mag. Needless to say not one of my brighter moments.
  13. Watching video of yourself is really helpful. I've only been videoed shooting a couple of times, and was doing all sorts or weird stuff that I didn't even realize I was doing. Recording yourself shooting is good because there is no question of perception, the way you see yourself shoot on the video is the way you shot.
  14. I'd stick with what you have and spend the money on bullets and practice time at the range. I've made the mistake of dropping money on something "faster" and ended up having to relearn the draw, point, index, and all that good stuff. It's way too easy to spend more money and think that's the solution as opposed to practicing with it. However, if the setup is uncomfortable and doesn't work all that well, change it. I guess what it boils down to, is find one setup that works for you and stick with it. Changing new equipment and gadgets may look neat, but nothing beats time and practice.

    thanks!

    Thanks to everyone for sharing their knowledge. I think that's what draws people to this sport, the comraderie and willingness to share knowledge and experience. I remember my first match and how intimidating it was to see all the M and GM shooters tear down stages, and I going at a snail's pace and missing half the targets on the stage. Everyone wanted to help and give me tips to getting better. I just kept going to matches, making new friends, and became a better shooter. Now I do the same thing for the newer people who come to the matches. I'm far from being good, but always like to help out the new people who come in. We were all new at one point, and some of us are still on the newer side, but we've all got something to pass on.
