  1. It worked, as long as I paid attention to the grip. I switched the original thin aluminium grips to thicker M-Arms, big improvement. Last Black Friday, I found a good deal on Shadow 2 Optics Ready. Only shot a couple of steel matches with it, but the fit is night and day: the hump on the back strap made a huge difference. My daughter runs Shadow 1, but it seems Shadow 2 is a much better fit for her as well. She tried my S2 and someone’s Tanfo Limited Custom, both were close, about 40-50% reduction in grip force required to achieve the same level of stability vs S1. If s
  2. This Kidd kit causes burst fire in Ruger PC.
  3. In my case, it was probably a combination of 1 and 2. I tried to induce a drop fire, but the trigger functioned as intended, until the time came for a live fire test. @jrdoran: did you have to do any mods to the bolt / recoil assy to run such light loads? My Charger had a couple of feeding stoppages with 127 PF reloads during a recent match. It felt like the bolt did not cycle completely: empty case ejected, new round stripped from the mag, but the bolt did not fully close. I rack the charging handle, end up with two rounds in the feeding path. Day two, switched to cheap factory 115 g
  4. I think PC9 needs quite a bit of sear-hammer engagement due to it’s heavy bolt cycling above the trigger. It seems when the bolt closes, it might induce just enough shock and rotation for the sear to skip. I tried the 10/22 Kidd trigger job kit, the trigger felt perfect and passed function checks, but also caused bursts with live ammo. A 6.5” PC Charger with a comp and tele stock remained very controllable, compared to AK-74U in 5.45x39, albeit the rate of fire was a bit high. Finished the session with 1 round per mag (was chronoing a bunch of new loads), and returned things back to stock asap
  5. Well, the Charger has fairly short barrel (6.5”). Theoretically, hotter loads (7+ grains of HS-6) should help the comp. In practice, this also results in a noticeable feeling of the bolt ramming the rear end of the receiver. The gun should withstand at least +P equivalent loads. But milder loads appear to shoot faster and softer. Just assembled about 300 rounds with 4.1 gr of VV N320 to try. If it makes PF and shoots ok, it might work both for IPSC PCC and Production
  6. Will give it a try, thanks. I have a jug of N320 coming
  7. In search for a good load for Ruger PC Charger in 9mm. Soft and flat, in that order. I did a couple of tests with 115 gr plated HP bullets. Initially I was thinking along the lines of slower powder with lots of gas to help the compensator (running a stock comp from a CZ Evo 3). With 5.7-5.9 gr of CFE Pistol and 6.7-7.0 gr HS-6, I am getting about 1300 and 1340 FPS out of the 6.5” barrel, respectively for lower and higher loads. Zeroed at 100 m, it is also spot on between 7-25 m. Felt recoil is slightly higher with HS-6. Going to shoot a Level 2 next weekend and see how it perform
  8. Maybe talk to this guy: createdbycay.com I just ordered an extended charging handle and mag release from him. Will report back when the parts (and my recently acquired PC Charger) arrive
  9. Just ordered a PC Charger pistol: it has a chassis identical to the PC Carbine M-Lok version, shorter 6.5" barrel, and bare pic rail at the rear end instead of telescoping stock. In the parts bin, I have a folding/telescoping stock taken off a Sig MPX, a Kidd 10/22 trigger job kit, and a cheap red dot from Bushnell. Need mags. Thinking of ordering a bunch of 10-round Glock mags. Will 9 mm ammo work in .40SW Glock magazines? Here in Canada, pistol mags are limited to 10 rounds of ammo the mag was designed for. Some Beretta, Sig P22x, and CZ mags in .40SW can accommodate up to 1
  10. In case you are still looking: CZ Shadowline (classic 75B style, not the SP01 version) is quite a bit lighter than the Shadows. It works with Kadet 1 or Kadet 2 kits. CZ 75 or 85 lowers will also work. Thin grips, some grip tape, maybe slight trigger job, and he will be all set. I have this combo with Kadet 1 and it has been very reliable with old style metal mags. The only downside is the mags are expensive and PITA to load manually (get a baby maglula). My K1 doesn't feed properly with new style polymer Kadet mags. Buddy's S1K2 combo works with old and new mags no pro
  11. Benelli recently re-released the M1 as the budget semi auto. In Canada, it is marketed as the "Anniversary Edition". Just bought one - CAD$950 plus tax. I think in the US it was sold as a dealer exclusive model.
  12. Here is my daughter's CZUB magwell kit. It came with short grips, torx grip screws, the magwell, and two matching base pads. Standard base pads from M-Arms (https://www.m-arms.eu/products/std-magwell-1-round/) are a perfect fit. Both types of pads work fine with Mec-Gar 17-round mags. Weights: CZ aluminium 19 g, M-Arms brass 29 g
  13. Do you think Shadow 2 would be a better fit? TS is a whole other level of expense. I like being able to share mags etc with my kid.
  14. I did my Black Badge course (intro course required to get into IPSC in Canada) with a Norinco NP22, a Chinese Sig P226 clone. That thing had 16 pound DA trigger. I finished the first match second last, and with a bloody blister on the trigger finger Got a CZ very soon afterwards.
  15. ^ That amount of skateboard tape won't work in IPSC Production division Not quite sure about Lok palm swell bogies: I looked them up, the manufacturer says the overall grip width with the bogies is 1.44'' = 36.6 mm. Stock grip is ~27-28 mm wide. I also noticed front to back length of the grip is slightly (1-2 mm) shorter on the Shadowline vs my daughter's Shadow 1. I have ordered thicker aluminium panels and some grip tape for now, they should arrive in a week.
