Hey everyone. Browsing around on the forum here I've found some great info on the JP 9mm short stroke set up. I used a JP SCS in my first AR build and I absolutely love it. I am hoping to do the same in my latest "AR9" build. Makes sense to use both JP's SCS and BCG but it looks like there's not much info on their latest BCG that has a LRBHO feature (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fj6FKup8KIw). My receiver set isn't very main stream but it does have a traditional looking LRBHO feature, I think. I purchased it from Core Rifle Systems specifically because they're local to me and I felt like supporting a local shop as much as possible. The receiver set looks nice and solid, offers ambi bolt catch and mag release (although the bolt catch lever already broke off.... hopefully they'll take care of that).
Anyhow my questions are:
Does anyone have any experience with JP's latest 9mm bolt?
After doing some research on these forums (https://www.jprifles.com/document_pdfs/SCS Selection Guide_758.pdf) and watching the JP media it sounds like the 5 steel version would probably be OK. When/why would I need to go heavier? I do have some tungsten weights from my other piston AR that I could swap out in case I need to tweak it, before buying more weights ($40/ea is tough).
My goals for this build are more in the "PDW" realm of things, but I am very very interested in some of the local PCC stuff that's going on. It looks like a lot of fun and hopefully it's something I can do as more of a recreational thing. I am willing to invest in the meat and potatoes of the gun first and I've had nothing but success with my last JP SCS set up but $440 is almost half the gun though... hah. Just looking for some confirmation before I drop that much on this pistol.
Here are few pics of the bolt catch on my receiver in case it helps:
I hope links are OK. My pics exceeded the max upload size.
