  1. So much for that Production 15 round again...
  2. Hi Guys, Been loading on a Dillon 650 ( with a case feeder and a primer filler) Just like to pick up some speed, make more rounds / hour. Wodering if I am better off buying a Dillon 1050 for about $1800 or adding a Mark VII and a bullet feeder to my 650 for about $2300 Sure seating primers on the upstroke (1050) would be nice vs occasionally seating primers high on the 650. ( I do need to seat primers deep to keep the bolo happy.../ kinda leaning towards the 1050 I guess) Relability does matter, when the press is down, due to whatever reason the rounds / hour number goes down... (Don’t feel like forking out money for a 1050 plus a Mark VII...) Any opinion- suggestions are appreciated,
  3. Is the finish wear just holster wear, or is there a scratch/gouge on the left side near the muzzle?  (Can't tell from the photo).

    What kind of finish does the pistol have (Cerrocote, etc.?)

    Interested in any trades?

     

    Thanks

      Hi,

      For me it appears to be that it is only holster wear (just checked it) I can not feel any uneven wear when I touch it there. 

      I am more then happy to send a picture of that part only. 

      It has bluing on in. 

      I might trade it if somebody has aimpoint or trijicon for trade. 

      thanks,

  4. Assuming they put tritium in it with lots of shelf life...Every time when I am about to pull the trigger on a TR25 with red triangle, I find a post (this last one is from pistol forums) that one of the members over there has a TR24 dated 2010 and an ACOG manufacturing date unknown but they both have dead tritium lamps after about 5 and a half years... IMO Accupoints make great daytime outdoor scopes but with no natural lights available to gather or dead tritium lamps they just extra weight on the rifle... So as any other battery operated optics BUT if spare batteries available they can be fully operational as long as batteries are available ...
  5. I can pick up a Steiner M5Xi 1-5 for $1990 plus tax Just wondering if it worth the $900 extra over the T5Xi 1-5 Anybody has any experience with both? I like the rapid dot reticle over the 3TR but I am not sure if I like it $900 more... How is the battery life on those? Just wondering if there's a more wise way to blow approx 2 grand.... For somebody who doesn't really shoot rifles in the firts place... For $2100 out the door I could pick a VCOG but that 1st focal plane is not really appealing to me. Or half the money could get me a Leupold VX-6
  6. Don't take it as an insult, but I strongly believe that fiber optic and tritium equals a disposable scope. [Accupoints are "disposable" optics, when fiber optic gets dimmer in a few years no one is gonna be able to recharge it. Also tritium has a half life of approx 12 years. Meaning 6 years would be 25% loss of the original brightness and so on. Assuming it was new when it got put into the scope and the scope wasn't sitting years on a shelve somewhere before it was picked up by the customer. (personally experienced this with a tritium front sight, ended up changing it out after 4-5 years.) Not sure what accupoints look like inside in a building without natural light though, never had one.] Also came across post about ACOGs loosing their daytime brightness due to the fiber optic getting old I guess.
  7. I was doing a lot of research on scopes regarding to this thread. Low power variable scopes (1-4, 1-6) have no battery life, they last about 30 hours max on max setting regardless of brand. (That VCOG is just way too expensive....) Most of them hardly ever visible in bright daylight. Black reticle on black cloths....well you wont see nothing.

(with an extra battery or two they could go decades...)
  8. Sig Tango6 ? Seems like it would make a good shtf scope. Fiber optic illumination, powers up-down when sensing movement to extend battery life.
  9. To be fair, the scenario in your pictures isn't very representative of what I call "daylight", at least as it relates to the sun or being outdoors. You are right. Those picture meant to show what it looks like without illumination. In bright daylight outside in the Nevada desert the illumination is not visible. This never meant a brand beating thread, it is a good scope for playing games - I guess but I want to have some input on things what would work when Shtf.

  11. After reading the comments here about daylight visible illumination is overrated, decided to go to the garage and put a black T-shirt over a dummy. ( just to see it with my own eyes, not because I felt like arguing...) Excuse me for the poor quality of the pictures, but holding a rifle and trying take a picture with the phone, well it wasn't that easy for me. One with the illumination (max setting) and one without the illumination. Black reticle on black clothes...well, you will just guessing not aiming... In my opinion after this little experiment, daylight visible illumination is a must have. Nice to have magnification for distant shooting, but being able to aim at close ranges is a must.
  12. Just trying to get some advice on AR sights for a shtf AR. How would a variable power illuminated 1-4 scope stand up against other sights, red dots, holo sights pros-cons etc. My Viper PST is not exactly daylight visible in the desert here, but on the flip side, it does have some magnification (and some weight...) don't know anything about how rugged it is. Wondering if there are much better choices when the zombies (lol) coming. While I am aware that this is not a "prepper" forum, and my thread might get locked, but I am also aware that there are a lot of knowledgeable person here who does know a thing or two... thanks,
  13. I was thinking the front serrations also...and this is why I asked. So anybody knows for sure?
  14. Is Lone Wolf G34 slide production legal? Just read something about external modifications in the USPSA rule book and I got confused. Just wanna make sure if it is production legal. Also their site states something about fitting the slide... Does this actually require fitting? https://www.lonewolfdist.com/Detail.aspx?PROD=1187
