  1. Hello all, If you pull the charging handle back slowly with an empty magazine, should the bolt catch hold the edge of the BCG as well as the bolt face? It's been over 20 years since I've had an AR rifle, but don't remember this happening in the past. Brownells BCG and Aero Precision lower... happens with Aero and CMC bolt catches as well as Magpul 20/30 round Gen 2/3 and 30 round Brownells metal mags. I spoke to Brownells and they suggested I send the BCG back for a replacement, but they've never heard about this before. Figure I'd ask first to see if this is normal behavior or not before I start mailing parts. Pic attached to show the first spot where the catch holds the bolt carrier group. Thanks! LT
  2. I reached out to the folks at C-More and they mentioned there could be Black Friday sales and suggested I add my name to their mailing list in the event other specials pop-up between now and then. There are a lot of guys at my local club who are running Swampfox LVPOs... I haven't had a chance to see them in person yet, but have heard good things about them.
  3. For those of you looking for a C3 at a reduced price... Amazon has a few in stock right now for $812 and change...
  4. You don’t. They’re back to $1299 and the previously mentioned coupon code isn’t valid anymore.
  5. Have you tried adding a minus connector and 4.5lb striker spring? That’s all I’ve done to my 34.5 and it was a huge improvement. Then again, I’ve only got about 1,000 rounds through a 22.4 and 34.5 total to compare things to.
  6. If you’re interested, now is the time. I hear they’ve expanded a few ranges and can support more members now.
  7. Great idea, for sure. Been bit by the new equipment bug too many times to count, myself. Most recently with a Burris FF3 on my brand new G34 MOS. First shot, great! Then... where did the dot go? The battery compartment had flown open and spit the battery and cover against my forehead. Tried as I might... that particular FF3 would not keep the battery in place. Thankfully it was a $15 range visit vs a match. Made me rethink the bottom mount battery on the RMRs for sure... saw them in a different light.
  8. One other quick (but relevant) bump on an OLD thread... From what I hear, PSC has opened up some additional ranges which has allowed them to expand their membership. Not sure about any waiting list, but August is when they have new enrollment. I've been waiting since January to join, so if you're on the fence/interested, now is the time to reach out and see about joining. Lots of USPSA, IDPA, Steel Challenge, along with plates and pins. Here's a link to the current calendar for the club. https://www.pscshootingclub.com/index.php/calendar
  9. Yes.... bumping an OLD thread but only to say... If you're around the Friendswood area, PSC opens up their membership in August to new members. I recently found PSC and am a big fan of the Steel Challenge matches and figured other newer shooters/folks who aren't aware of PSC might appreciate the head's up on a chance to join the range.
  10. Thanks! I had to drive about 180 miles to find one in stock, but yeah, definite deal. If only I had found it before buying 1,000 rounds of .40 from Atlanta Arms. I will say, their 180gr .40 minor loads are a treat to shoot!
  11. Oh, for sure. Just challenging at times to have 50 posts when most of the info needed is already been sought and answered!
  12. Just remember... asking price and selling price are two separate things. Just picked up a brand new Gen5 G34 for $610 out the door, thanks to my GSSF certificate. Once I finish up the .40 ammo I've got... it'll be time to put the Gen4 G22 up for sale. It'll be interesting to see what the market will bear come that point!
  13. While thread bumping is never encouraged on any forum... 50 posts is a heck of a lot to get full access to the classifieds. I know that the classifieds were an add-on to this forum, but when I needed to find an out of production Leopold scope, I was able to get a paid membership to Accurate Shooter and that was the "easy button" to finding what I needed. Here? Not so much.
  14. Hey y'all, New member here in Houston, Texas... getting back into the shooting sports after about a decade being away. Last time I was shooting competitively, handgun silhouette was the game. Now, dipping my toes into Steel Challenge at the local range down in Friendswood, Texas. Did a bit of IPSC/USPSA shooting back in the early 90s, out in Richmond, California. "See" ya on the forums!
