Looks for Range

Looks for Range (1/11)

  1. thats a big plus 1 from me exactly as tom said
  2. Chrono suggestions anyone? the guy at the range with the chaos said shooters world major also. i just ordered 8 pounds. The comp looks like a steel challenge type 3 ports not that big. This pistol was probaly built for sc ? Will try again with firm grip
  3. I started with 115 gr xtreme rn and worked up my hs6 loads to 7.7 . All loads are 1.160 and federal match small rifle primers. I followed some opinions saying lighter bullet more powder = more gas for the comp. At c2 tactical PHX AZ an employee test fired my gun and said harsh and to the right recoil, he owns an atlas chaos. He also said might be the 115 grn bullets. So I switched to 124 berry .356 bumped it up to 7.5 hs6 off the bat and the video shows what I got. My grip is not real tight I did not flex any muscles like I would if I was shooting a .357 hot loaded. Any opinions ? you can go slow mo on the video in the youtube settings. Thinking some more I will offer some of the great guys at c2 way better shooters than me to test fire and then post some more videos. IMHO a few more tenths of grains up might be good. And buy 1 of their targets take it home draw lines spaced on blank side, use that as a back drop behind a shooter to evaluate recoil flip.
  4. with the 750 if you dont buy a case feeder right away, you can extend the clear case feed tube a bit, then put a small funnel on top, and then you can load the case feeder with a fair amount of cases. imho get an extra index ring they are plastic and can break, scenario primer was not removed completely operator pulls handle primer locks up breaks index ring. The ergo handle on ebay inlinefabrication is an awesome upgrade.
  5. heres a burn rate chart https://winchesterpowder.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/02/burnratecolor.pdf starting to load 115 rn with Hodgdon HS-6 powder starting at 6.6 gr. I will start with 8# spring and small rifle magnum primers, that appear to be working in my 2011 tested 25 . 2011 sized case just primer seated bulges out is that normal with no powder ?
  6. 4.5 and 4.6 locked back the slide. Ejection a rainbow about 2 feet. 7# spring. I would like to switch to 115 gr and what powder for my comp? This is a shoot steel targets for fun gun. Thanks in stock local VihtaVuori Powder 3N38 - 1lb 3N38-1 $35.46 ? Winchester Powder Auto Comp - 8lb SUPERSALE AC8 $167.22 other powder local https://www.brunoshooters.com/mm5/merchant.mvc?Screen=CTGY&Category_Code=powder I also have plenty of cci magnum small rifle primers. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RC-XSecqgUw
  7. Finally got to shoot my new to me used 2011 style frame with sti slide 3 port comp. This is not a I need x power factor. The short oal is for my cz shadow 2 that is also getting a comp barrel on order. Started with 1.13 oal 124 grain berry round nose win 231 4.0 gr . Shot about the same as. 1.13 oal 124 grain berry round nose win 231 4.3 gr . Ejection was maybe 2 - 3 feet from gun. Couple stove pipes not enough power to work the slide. This is with a taylor tactical 8 # recoil spring then quickly went to the 7 # spring same thing. Wolf variable light springs are ordered. From what Ive read for a comp gun get a light bullet 115 or less. Use slow burn comp powder. I would like to try to get the 231 to work within reason I have 13 pounds. If I am wasting my time with 231 please advise what powder to use. I have 5k + extreme 115 grain round nose and hollow points and the same 124. Any advice thanks editing looking for max powder for 115 vs 124 .
  8. The pistol was on g broker in Phoenix 1/2 hour drive from me so I looked at it and bought it impulse. The owner said it was a custom build from accuracy unlimited az. My local gunsmith said it locks up tight looks good about sub 2 # trigger. I expressed my concerns about alum frame etc. We talked about oil for the frame. Barrel says .355 so only .355 ? cant go .356 ? opinions vary depends who is asked forums etc. Asking here. I like the left side of the safety for a thumb ride, I am accidently engaging the right side. I have not fired it yet. Will be happy to grind that off. Or order single side safety. Beaver tail safety has been de activated. For me I would like to get the beaver safety back in action unless there is a major advantage either way. I ordered the taylor spring kit and the wolf ultralight spring kit. It has a dawson ? easy take down guide rod. I read here use a regular guide rod for low power loads? I am not competing in any contests. Maybe a local steel challenge some day. pics here>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> https://imgur.com/a/hRu0Qkw thanks
  9. I ordered these in a couple different lengths https://www.boltdepot.com/Metric_set_screws_Allen_Cone_point_Alloy_steel_black_oxide_finish_5mm_x_0.8mm.aspx?Selected=25490 . https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B072FBTP4H/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 also bought assortment of these no drilling maybe a flat spot with a file or Dremel. https://www.boltdepot.com/Metric_set_screws_Allen_Knurled_cup_point_Alloy_steel_black_oxide_finish_5mm_x_0.8mm.aspx?Selected=25615 I've read many posts talking about Loctite and maybe something overlooked is auto rtv. High temp flexible and can be broken free. Toyota rtv is super strong and pricey not recommended. Just a thought . And this concept in conjunction with set screws https://www.wingtactical.com/firearm-parts/ar-15/muzzle-devices/jp-enterprises-1-2-28-muzzle-jam-nut/ .
  10. I ordered the barrel 1/2x28 tpi . I am leaning towards this 5 port https://stores.sjcguns.com/sjc-9mm-compensator-5-port-aluminum/ . Any other options for that thread size ? I should install the barrel first before I buy anything. another candidate https://www.archonmfg.com/archon-mfg-glock-compensator-1-2-28-9mm-black-anodize/ . update I ordered the sjc 5 port. actually its 3 ports on top 2 on the side.
  11. can I see some pics of custom comps? and how did this comp not yours appear to break ?
  12. https://stores.sjcguns.com/sjc-major-9mm-11-port-aluminum-compensator/ . I know thats for a glock but i can have a gap. Getting the comp reamed aligned so the bullet goes straight through? Drilling and tapping for set screws so the comp wont twist? Or a locking nut that may not hold? All of these are either out of stock or will not fit https://speedshooter.com/product-category/compensator/ . Then theres these 3 options after the barrel is fitted its a done deal no more problems. https://barsto.com/product/cz-shadow-shadow2-9mm-extended-ported/ . Im thinking the mill cut 3 port is the way to go ? If I ever wanted to change up the 3 port this service could cut threads on the barrel. https://www.tornado-technologies.com/category/BRTH/Barrel-Threading/1.html . How effective are the barsto cuts? Not from experience but theory science ? I do not need to make any power factor. I bought the s2 because I wanted something good that I could modify.
  13. I really want a comp for my shadow 2. Im not going to shoot competition. I like shooting steel plates.I can reload with my dillon 750 so enough gas to get the comp to work will be a fun project. What thread size is the most popular? and can someone recommend a comp? CZ custom quoted me 150 bucks to fit the barrel and test fire it. They said barsto barrel. I think I can do that myself. https://barsto.com/product/cz-shadow-shadow2-9mm-extended-threaded/ . I keep looking at this https://eaacorp.com/product/witness-elite-gold-team/ in 9mm . Im thinking a couple minutes to swap out my barrel is the way I would like to go. It doesnt have to be pretty meaning a gap is ok with me.
  14. Shadow 2 insert loaded mag on an open slide from firing then slide goes forward into battery sometimes. Does not seem to happen with empty mag at home I tried moving slide release down a bit before inserting empty mag. I now have some some snap caps so will give that a try. Maybe it is because I am using lower recoil spring? Too much oil on parts? Berry 124 rn 3.8 grain win 231 light and easy target loads. Also is it normal that my brass ejects directly to the right of me ? Its about 6-8 feet. 90 to 110 degrees thanks
  15. holster for shadow 2 frame optic mount? I do not shoot any competitions. I have my shadow 2 equipped with czc frame mount with burris ff3. . My thumb rest is coming soon http://www.fire-4-effect.com/F4E-ENHANCED-THUMBREST-FOR-CZ-TAC-SPORT_p_272.html so there is no way a conventional holster will work.
