    FTE on new gun

    Factory new Barage? Have you contacted Lead Star? Do you have another 9mm bolt you could slip in to test things? Still have the Blitzkrieg buffer? Having problems with various ammo I wonder if maybe a lighter buffer spring might help. I've not heard of any new PCCs requiring a break in period. Hope you get it running before the weekend.

    Have you shot any other ammo? Maybe some factory rounds? Any improvement?

    Have you plunk tested those rounds? I have several barrel that have not had the throat extended and in those barrels I cannot load 160 gr Ibjihead RN coated bullets past 1.130" long. Any longer and they will stick in the chamber.

    9mm PCC cycling issues

    How did they do that? I can see where that is a nice feature. Now I lock back the bolt so I can manipulate the trigger and safety selector. With the hammer down (bolt forward) I could add magazine reloads to the drill.

    9mm PCC cycling issues

    My first PCC lower built from scratch had a CMC trigger assembly from a .223 in the safe. Like yours, the trigger failed to reset. Put it back in the .223 and it runs 100%. Put a Hiperfire trigger on the lower and it runs just fine.

    Closing the gap on A class

    If shooting minor means more trigger time, stick with it for now. Just know that to a some extent you are not competitive. Make going major one of your goals. Even shooting minor, with practice, you will get better. At this point you are still "learning to improve" and that should be your goal. When you get a chance, review your past match performance and compare it to those you are chasing. Not looking at the points, compare your times and number of A's and C's. And if you want to expand your math gymnastics, take the Practiscore numbers and score yourself at major. Where does that leave you in the pack? If you do not see you would have moved up in the standings, then going major would not help much at this time. It will also mean you are shooting mostly A's and not losing many points to C's and D's. Mostly A's is good as long as its not at the expense of time. On the other hand, if you see your position in the rankings move up due to major, it may give you the little extra incentive to start reloading in .40 major.
  7. What barrel and bolt are you pairing these up with?

    Generic Recoil Spring

    Might help if you could share some info on the gun.

    Thinking about PCC, Here is what I have

    Interesting. I had not seen this one before. Do you have any experience with it? Is it reliable?

    121 JHP PCC Load

    Picked up a case MG 121 IFP for shots past 70 yards. Over 3.9 - 4.0 gr N-320 I'm finding them very accurate. But for these long shots its also barrel dependent. PF with a 16" barrel is around 145. For targets at USPSA distances, I shoot a less expensive bullet.

    USPSA & Mark7 get married

    How much did he spend to get it up and running?

    Pistol Caliber Carbines

    If you have a registered lower that you want to use, then the magwell adapter is the way to go. But if not, the price of the high quality adapter is almost as much as a dedicated 9mm lower. Then you will have two complete guns instead of 1-1/2. A fellow shooter was at the range today with one of the new PSA Gen 3 lowers. Did not differ much from the Gen 2 lowers and looked to be functioning nicely. Looks good too.

    Pistol Caliber Carbines

    Well I did install the feedramp in my main PSA 9mm, but that was after over 10,000 trouble free rounds. And I only had problems with one magazine. The other dozen or so mags still fed 100%.
  14. Like Mike said, " I never had feeding issues until I did." My problems started when my main match gun had over 10K rounds on it and one magazine with an extension began to give me fits. The mag was only several months old and not used a whole lot. Since all other mags, including those with extensions, still ran 100%, I assumed it to be a spring problem. After adding the feedramp, problem solved. The spring may be going bad (but I don't think so). Xanatos903 sums it up well. All my 9mm uppers will be outfitted with the ramps in the future. Solve the problem before it ruins a match.

    Bring 'em both to a match. You use one and let me play with the other. 👍 From watching a few new shooters with SBRs earlier this year, I highly recommend you use a handstop, I see the AR has one (good for you). I don't know if they were just inexperienced or more accustomed to longer handguards, but they kept trying to grab the gun way too close to the muzzle.
