  1. I am still loving the Gen 3s. It is all I have. The only Gen 5 that has caught my eye is the 17. I have been debating sending a Gen 3 slide to have cut for DPP. If the Gen 4s are dumped I have zero issue in getting a 17/34 MOS in Gen 4. I had Gen 2s and traded them for Gen 3s. I guess I am in the camp where I like the finger groves. At least I hear the .40s Gen 5s are in the pipe.
  2. Thanks, this is the log that was available. I thought since the rules are "evergreen" now it would be important to keep the change log available to the masses.
  3. I must be getting old. I thought on the USPSA website there was a rules change log. I cannot find it and under the rulings and the link for official rulings says all have been implemented in the rule book. Part 2, I could have sworn I had a copy of the rules that had the changes documented inside?
  4. Hi Deadeye, Yes, it will fit a Canadian or Pineville model without modification. From the photo you had posted, it looks like a Pineville? Due to checkering on the front strap?
  5. I will take $40 for the ICE and extra insert via PayPal.  




  6. I just bought 4 REAL P16 bodies from Numrich. $13 a piece. No Crap. I also bought the last 3 S&A magwells S&A had. I had my P16s milled for the S&A. Now the guns take a various amount of mag base pad combos. I can run Dawson and I get 20 reloadable. I can run Dawson's on the $20 MecGar mags and get 19. I have 12 H2G Para mags and 20+ MecGars. So I am set for a while. I load to 1.178" COL Blue Bullets 180. I am getting 100% reliability. I have an ICE magwell and extra insert laying around now with no home. This combo worked fine with MBX mags or Canadian Para tubes and Dawson Base pads. The MBXs were not 100% for me. If I ran the gun dry, it would swallow the follower into the chamber. It was a show stopper. Really nasty. I could just not make a go of it. Seemed like a really good product. I was told to get Grams followers. Could never find any. Sold them off. Went down the S&A route and have never looked back.
  7. This is more than likely the Carbide ring broke on the sizing die. I had this happen about 2 years ago. I could not even see the crack with my eyes, but it would expand and shrink as the die worked the brass. Replaced with another Dillon and is running fine. The new gen FL sizing die has the spring loaded de-capper. Once in a blue moon the E-Clip will break. It comes with a spare. I recommend you keep a few around. Its a standard E-Clip and 1/4" size. For me, its Dillon or Redding for dies. For both 9mm and 40 I have never had an issue with brass not sizing right with Dillon dies. I see no need for a modified or lee die. But, the Lee / EGW seems to be very popular. I am in the neighborhood of 10-20K rounds a year on reloading depending on shooting demand. Some years less some more.
  8. ArrDave -> Trying not to be rude, but your message structure is very broken. You mention 3. Then a button stopped working. Which one? My experience with the DPP is limited to one. I must say it has not been good. It lasted 6 magazines before I gave up. Turned off twice within the six strings. Mounted on a Glock G34 with minor powder puff rounds. Outer Impact dovetail mount. It is in transit to Oregon as I type. I will say Leopold was very responsive via email. In the end, they recommended I send it in for service. I am mildly optimistic.
  9. Just mounted a new DPP on my Glock 34 G3. Was like a little kid at Christmas. Sight it in at 15 yards on a metric. All well and good. Now off to the steel plates. Sadly It did not make it through 6 strings. Turned off twice at random while firing. This was gong to be my jump into CO. This has kind of squashed the will now. I have contacted Leopold via email.
  10. Grams. I had some for Glock years ago.
  11. I am slowly become a fan of the 357 Sig. I have two conversion barrels for a couple of Glocks. Factory ammo is not so much more $. I found a cache of once fired brass too. My 650 is G2G with the Mr. BF with 9mm and standard Dillon 40 stuff. Just add dies. Speer Lawman 125 barely makes PF. Its available at $17/50 + rebate. So there is some downloaded factory offers to play with. I am considering shooting the G22 conversion in limited for S & G. Now, for non-game stuff. Some of the other factory options are just the heat for SD. IMHO the 40 can't keep up, but that is an ongoing drug out horse beaten debate. It is snappy in the G22, but very flat. One thing that I have noticed, it is very accurate. There seems to be a resurgence on the interwebs about the 357 Sig. And I was not too surprised that it came up here on Enos.
  12. Question; I have 5 TTI Glock extensions for my G35 setup. 3 I have been using for a few years and hold 18 rounds with some give for easy reloads. So, I am getting back into limited. Last week I ordered two more TTI extensions in Tan color. I cannot get 18 rounds in either one. I have tried several tubes and swapped springs/followers from my older ones that work. Its a hard stop at 17, not mushy, hard. Visibly I can see no difference between the new ones and old ones. Then to add insult, yesterday one of my existing TTI did two speed unloads during match. I have put it back together with a newer tube, so I shall see. I love TTI's stuff, but now my confidence is shaken.
  13. My 2 cents, a well built 1911 is not so much a mystery to keep running. Its good to know the basics, but you don't need to be a basement gunsmith. When you do have a problem and you are limited in knowledge, put the Dremel down and find a good smith.
