  1. 929 S&W revolver. I had a small amount of Clays powder I wanted to use up BUT I had another revolver shooter tell me as far as case expansion, Clays was to fast??... Which maybe true, as I had some moon clipped cases that didn't extract easily recently and this was when using Clays.... My load is 2.8 grains of Clays , Acme 145gr. red coated bullet, 1.10 OAL( same load used for PCC carbine) cronos consistant 129 power factor. Dillon 650 /Lees "U" die, Shockbottle gaged, Fed nickel brass. I have 3n37, 1# of 231, lots of CFE pistol,and Auto Comp, Fed 100 primers. Since the PCC uses Glock sty
  2. I thought the whole platform felt on the heavy side.(bolt?)...... Didn't seem to point fast for me.....("Spoiled" by the Taccom aluminum shrouded barrel AR I use I imagine?). Was very reliable Glock mags, lower cost than most AR 9mm's.....Just not for me....
  3. Ordered one.....Grabagun had good price
  4. Do you check with a sizing gauge? or use the Lee "u"die?.
  5. What dot do you see on 99% of the open pistols????.... C-MORE's.... Great field of view, ez change dot modules, excellent reputation..... With minimal skill you can make a slide ride from an old C-More Serendipity...
  6. 93 notch (Mustang?, my son has a 89 Police Interceptor w/heavy engine mods))... See my post on mag mods... Pretty simple & low cost. Update.....Maybe a simple fix for the 19 rd. mags?....... I did remove the bolt hold open from both 19 rd. mags, they were much better. I did lightly sanded/polished the follower.I found that on both mags the followers became stuck in the upper part of the mags at the mid point of the 4 slots. i found about .006 difference in the internal measurements before the "slots" and after the "slots"...........Just enough for the follower to drag a bit

(Bottom part of the mag was fine). I looked for a means to slightly expand this area, nothing seemed to b
  8. Good info, I have the moly spray on hand... I'll try the spray on one and the BHO removal on the other.... The 5 & 9 rounders work 100%. Time to get a longer bag?...
  9. New RIA 80 owner.... Not new to mag fed shotguns. This gun looks to be well thought out compared to others...Even cycled some 1 oz. x 7 1/2 loads (5 rd mags).. I've been reading all the other 40+ posts on the shotgun including the 19 rd mag info. I did the usual removal of any plastic flash from the follower and removed any sharp edges, reversed the springs, etc. After some initial jamming, the bolt hold open lever edge has been slightly rounded thinking that was the issue?....... Looking at the inside of the 19 rd. mag body, it's easy too see that the rear transition grove from one mag
  10. Can you post a picture of the mod ?. Thanks.
  11. Anyone tried the 20 rd. drum yet..... I actually saw one work n a Saiga once. Had a 1919, never did get the 23 rounder to function from day one......
  12. I've owned nearly all the various mag feed shotguns through the years, none were consistent runner's, especially with the 19/23 round mags and I've tried all the different shells out there. I've read the many reviews on the RIA and bit, got one on the way from KYGunCo. i have read all the info I could find, both here and on the :net: Did someone finally get it right????, (Hope so). is the trigger going to be the biggest issue?.( I 've used the JP spring kits before and they were a low buck improvement)....... looks like Tooth&Nail and others are working on a trigger? but I can't see 4 1/2#
  13. HuMMMM... I just installed what was described as an AR 10 buffer tube, (1" longer overall) on a recent AR build. I'm 5'7" and I like the longer OAL...
  14. 7/1/19...RIA VR 80, Thought I'd post, KYgun had 20 in stock today, make that 19... Greg Cote has or had 9 and 19 round mags -2 of each.
  15. We like e'm.... All of the above mods done, get the 6 moa dot whatever brand of dot you get..... I like my Vortex Venom
  16. Good info. makes you wonder?.... "They" must have known there was a potential problem with the jig design as it was later corrected. Smells like buyer beware. Looks like "They" need a lesson in marketing??.. Very poor!!!. Hardly customer satisfaction oriented.
  17. The Canik line and the SFX have a lot going for them. If your on a tight budget or just plain want a really great shooter? for a small expense consider them. They are very accurate, use Metalform mags (18, 20, 22 rounds with TF base pads). Carry Optics ready, and on and on...... and run like a clock. I've cut the stock recoil spring to 14#'s, use the Vortex Venom 6 moa red dot added the Freedom Arms trigger (stock is fine, FA just moves the action forward). $650/$700 total will do all this
  18. I've known Vic for years....He called me his 1st. sponsor. Many years ago, I gave him $20 for gas when he went to one of his early "big" match's. Mike Gregus
  19. Picture posted.... WHY, it's Nils.... Good choise Canik!!!
  20. I have the Taccom 5 1/2" w/aluminum shroud ,no comp.....Way early version w/ feed ramp. My opinion, the comp may make you feel better, that's about it. If I miss anything out to 100 yards??.... It's the "jerk" behind the trigger, not the gun. I have 2 other 9mm's... The 5 1/2 barrel points fastest (at least in my mind)...... Lighter=faster....
  21. I forgot to mention, I use a 6.5# Glock striker spring and the "cut" Canik set up (Glock spring cups also).Those little black devils go flying , so use the Caniks or the EZ to find Glock cups and orient them as per Glock instructions..... I have a few thousand rounds on this set up, Works 100%.... Just don't get too carried away when cutting the Canik spring..IT'S got to go back into battery when fired (NO AMMO) vertically (The Glock battery test) I don't use the Sprinco system anymore. The Caniks are VERY accurate... Just shot a USPSA local match, that use a bear trap activator on a fast clo
  22. it's simple to take apart (detailed in Canik forum.com )...... Canik uses a thread locker on the nose of the recoil rod...use vice grip pliers, to push spring down so you don't over-heat it. on flat surface or bench vise , lock pliers to guide rod, heat cap and remove it, , . Use the Glock in battery test for slide lock-up test..... I've said I think a Glock 14# recoil spring would be perfect but none available that I know of. The Glock gen 3 13# recoil setup with gen 4 adaptor sleeve would not always return to full lock up for me..... I used a bench grinder to remove 3 or 4 coils (SEE g
