  1. What issues did you have, what exactly was the solution?
  2. Looking to buy a great trigger for a PCC that I'm sharing with my significant other. Currently considering a PCC Gold, and was interested to see what experiences owners have had with this model before I purchase one myself. Currently using a Taccom bolt in the gun, in case that is a factor with this trigger. Any malfunctions/issues experienced? Round counts?
  3. Recently bought a KE Arms KE9 lower, with the ejector installed using the standard "2 screw" method. I'm looking to ensure that the ejector screws are tightened properly myself, and I'm looking to see what torque people typically tighten their ejector screws to? Blue loctite is involved I'd imagine. Also, has anyone had to dimple their ejector to ensure proper engagement with the ejector screws? The KE Arms ejector lacks any dimples/holes to accomodate the ejector in its slot, leaving friction as the only method of ejecto retention.
  4. UPDATE: Found the issue. Trigger spring had partially rotated on its hole in the trigger bar, allowing it to collide with the plastic of the trigger housing when trying to reset. Fixed by being careful with insertion of the trigger bar/cruciform into the trigger housing.
  5. Originally, my G34 was having issues with the trigger stopping its reset just short of engaging the trigger safety. took the whole frame apart, cleaned it the best I could, and reassembled according to a mix of reassembly videos (ensuring to reinstall the trigger spring in the proper "S" configuration). After reassembly, the trigger will halt its reset immediately after clearing the connector, much too short to return to its originaly position. It feels like there is a "hitch" in the trigger traveling forward when I manually try to push the trigger back to its original position. Any ideas or s
  6. I have noticed that the overtravel on a CMC 9mm trigger is a bit longer than the RA140 i came from. Is that also your experience?
  7. Yes, I have just now recently determined that the trigger was likely the issue. With the lower separated from the upper, I pulled the trigger, recocked the hammer while holding the trigger back, and then quickly released my thumb from the hammer. The hammer was able to override the disconnector and "fire".
  8. I checked the spring and it doesn't seem unusually compressed. The firing pin is titanium, and still intact.
  9. PCC has Taccom bolt/buffer totalling at 20.6 oz cyclic mass. 12.5" Brekke barrel/comp/handguard, Rise Armament Rave140 trigger, using factory 115gr ammo from various companies. Have tried BOTH 223 carbine and 308 carbine springs. Total gun weight is 5.75 lbs at the moment, and it is short stroked so that the bolt stops at the rear top edge of the ejector. In both cases, I have gotten bumpfire intermittently, with the 308 spring actually causing bumpfire almost immediately upon first usage. I have tried gripping the gun harder. I have neverr had a bumpfire in 5900 rounds of the same ammo pri
  10. As title mentions, interested to see what options are on the market for basepads besides those made by TTI. Does anyone have experience with SSI basepads, or any recommendations on other alternatives for 140mm STI Gen 2s?
  11. Brekke Custom gets their barrels from Criterion. Nitriding is handled by a different company, not sure who.
  12. Only a data point of one, but I've been using an Iron City Rifleworks titanium pin in my PCC, with a Rise Armament Rave140 trigger. Currently 5700 rounds without firing pin failure, and I cannot see any cracks under a microscope yet.
  13. How many rounds with that buffer setup? I'm wanting to try the Blitzkrieg someday, but I've seen at least a few instances of broken piston rods near the front face of the piston.
  14. Under normal cirucmstances, that would imply that the trigger has enough spare space to allow movement despite the safety selector tumbler being (ideally) in the way. That's my understanding at least.
