  1. I'm going to be shooting a RIA pro match ultra and I'm currently having an extended slide stop installed. Do you think there's enough room for an extended slide stop on the side of the holster or is the fit too tight?
  2. I've ordered my RHT holster for a gun that I couldn't find one anywhere else so It's not like I have any real choice on where else to go, but I'm curious as to what the folks here thought about the one they had. I've heard the fit can be a bit sloppy but that was only from one person, I'm just trying to figure out where my expectations should be for this holster because right now they're pretty high.
  3. From what I've seen online it looks like the range of prescriptions offered largely depends on what equipment the shop has, so I'm gonna need to do a little looking around.
  4. That's good to hear! I'm really hoping for a pair similar to the rudy project glasses, that have a swappable lens so I can change them according to the lighting. Did you have any options like that available to you, or were the frames fixed?
  5. This year I'm looking to take uspsa more seriously and figured it'd be best to invest in some actual protective shooting glasses as I've just been wearing my normal prescription glasses to matches. Nobody there has given me any s#!t about it, but I thought someone at a higher level match may. Everyone here seems to recommend rudy project and I really like some of their frames, but their RX inserts only go up to +4.00 and one of my eyes goes to +4.50. So can I buy the insert itself and have a local optometrist make the lenses? Or do I just need to go a completely different route?
  6. RIA double stack 1911. Factory mag holds 16 rounds, MBX mags hold 18. Might get some basepads for them but not sure yet.
  7. Sounds exactly what I plan on doing. A magnet to keep my make ready mag there while I'm not up on deck, or with mags on table start.
  8. I shoot limited and my mags hold 18 rounds so I normally take 4 mags to a competition but only keep 3 on my belt, and have one as a backup in case I have a basepad crack. So after load and make ready, i only have 2 mags on my belt. I'm looking at the daa racer mag pouches and think a regular racer pouch and then one with a magnet would be perfect, I could have my two mags for the stage stowed and keep my starting mag on the magnet or in my pocket. Seems going this route would take up less space on my belt as well. Any real reason to go with 3 mag pouches instead?
  9. What holster did you end up using? I've tried the holsters from blade tech for the sti edge and no luck.
  10. I recently got a RIA 1911 I plan on running in limited and I've been looking at the MBX mags. Why are they 141.25mm long? I thought the limit was 140mm? I'm assuming I could sand the basepad down a little but I don't see why they're just not 140mm.
  11. Thank you so much for all the information! Time to go through and place some orders. Would you actually recommend an extended firing pin? I'm not even sure if they are extended but I'm assuming that's why folks suggest replacing them. I know it's commonly done on CZ's to add reliability. No idea how well a stock RIA firing pin holds up compared to aftermarket offerings. the sear, hammer, and disconnector I've heard all wear fairly fast and should be replaced soon.
  12. So I've gotten my RIA pro match ultra in .40, ordered my mags and holster, and now I'm looking at parts I want to upgrade. Sights are going to be a must as I want to swap over to night sights. I believe these are novak style sights but anyone here know the measurements or how to take them? I've already ordered an extended slide stop and a 13lb recoil spring from wilson combat. What I'm really curious about is the sear, disconnector, firing pin, and safety. From wilson combat most of these parts are listed either for .45 or 9mm/.38, but no options for .40 so I'm not sure which to order. Current
  13. This is my first 1911/2011 style gun so I have a LOT of learning to do. I'm gonna run it stock until I start having problems and then upgrade from there. With the MBX mags being a little under $150 each, I'm gonna stick with factory 16 rounders for now. Sadly the cheapest I can find them is like $45 but oh well, given the times it just is what it is. I may pin the safety but for now I'm going to leave it as is, because my club occasionally does unloaded starts and there's a possibility I may drop it while trying to pick it up and load it. Any recommendations on where I could snag cheaper mags?
  14. I think this is the road I'm gonna go down. I've always been against grip safeties but I'll deal with it for now. I'll shoot it and upgrade as I see fit. For now, its the gun, then mags, then a holster.
