  1. Toothpaste on a Qtip rubbed lightly works well.
  2. I have had several TacSol conversions and used them in both single and doublestack frames. Each one needed some tweaking to get them working, and TacSol's customer service has been great. I had issues with the double stack mags and they quickly replaced them. Recently, I had the barrel assembly fall of the front of the gun when firing. It took a while to figure out why until the slide got jammed up in a way that revealed a crack in the front. TacSol immediately send an entire replacement conversion.
  3. In a Bedell Shorty 8.8g HS6 115 Precision Delta JHP 1.15 OAL 172pf
  4. Not sure. I think the problem was unique to this gun. I have several other 2011's with more rounds than this one and they show no signs of similar grip issues. I guess it's just something to keep in mind when diagnosing hammer follow, along with the other things I tried.
  5. I was having occasional hammer follow on a 2011 open gun. It was a challenge to diagnose because the hammer follow would only occur during live fire. I went through the usual suspects. First I tried adjusting the sear spring, but it would still happen even with up to a 4lb trigger pull. Next, I replaced the sear and hammer with new EGW parts. Using trigger adjustment pins I could see that there was very good positive engagement, and again, I couldn’t replicate the hammer follow except during live fire. I had already checked the grip screws which were Loctited after prior experience on a d
  6. I cut a safety plunger spring in half. Has been working fine for over a year. Didn't mess with the ball springs.
  7. Great match. Thanks to all the staff for their hard work. If anyone found a small clear plastic tackle box full of tools and spares on stage 4 or 5, could you please let me know? Thanks.
  8. worldspeedshoot.com now shows as an expired domain name. Stepchild kicked to the curb?
  9. Does anyone know what the latest is? Is there any additional info on this match, or even confirmation that it is happening? Apart the dates shown on the Nationals page and listed in Front Sight, I haven't been successful in finding anything else.
  10. Thanks for all the replies. It's off to C-Rums. Anyone have pics of their 20 ga loading port opened up?
  11. Does anyone make a welded lifter for the M2 in 20? It seems to be narrower than the 12 ga.
  12. Don't know what you're talking about Jim. Me and my guns got home as clean as when I left. Great match Dean and crew!!! Thanks. Al
  13. So technically an out-of-state resident is not allowed to shoot in a NY competition if it is not recognized by the NRA or followed by NY penal code 265.20-12. So does that mean Duchess County matches are a no go for out of staters?
  14. I'm with Viggen and zhunter. Don't buy! We usually put in big group orders and buy enough to cover at least the next 12 months of shooting. I won't buy anymore until prices come down. If I run out of 40's, I'll start loading 9mm and shoot production for a while. If I run out of that, I'll switch to rimfire steel, etc. I have to much work twice as hard to make the same amount of money now so I don't have time shoot as much as I want anyway. If everyone changes their purchasing habits, prices will come down. Why buy today if you know prices have to come down? And if they don't, I will
  15. The match was great. Thanks to the guys at Topton. Regarding the long range stage, I didn't see anything wrong or different from any other long range rifle stage. If you want to see the flasher really move at 200yds, shoot a heavier bullet or shoot major. If you can't see through the dust, don't miss. If you can't see the steel, get better optics. If you shoot limited, that's your choice.
