  1. My last Efile Form 1 took 16 business days! The SBR I did on paper took over 8 months. I built a 8” on a QC10 and in March finished an MP5A3 clone with 8.6” barrel. The Mp5 shoots much softer and is easier to control but trigger travel is longer and harder to shoot fast splits on in your face targets.
  2. I found them at the Ben Stoger Pro Shop online. It’s just a bumper, no round increase but with the price of HK mags I thought they were worth protecting. 3D printed with a rubbery plastic, they fit very tightly. Only $4.95 each. Doug
  3. My name is Doug and I’m a trigger slapper. That said, the 9ct trigger is sprongy but not heavy. The takeup is long but light and the break is predictable. If I try to hold the trigger back after the shot I often end up doubling. It’s not like a JP trigger but so what, it’s completely usable and fun to shoot. Doug
  4. I just sold a GMR-13 to buy a PTR 9ct MP5 clone. I have a couple of AR-15 SBRs, including a QC10 9mm but the MP5 is an iconic gun that begs to be shot in PCC matches. An MP5 has some disadvantages but like shooting single stack that is part of the fun. I’m shooting the PTR in non USPSA PCC matches now and when my Form 1 comes back I’ll shoot it in USPSA matches.

  5. Go for it! If you know your dope and your gun you’ll probably never finish below 50%. Gas guns have advantages over bolts guns in some types of long range competitions. Doug
  6. Good answer, 13 years late. Doug
  7. I've used the FastFire 2 and 3, Cmore Slideride & STS, Aimpoint H1 & PRO, JP Jpoint, Trijicon RMR 06 and TruGlo Tru-Tec 20mm (looks the same as the Holosun HS403b). Jpoint was the only one that ever broke for me and after only one session on a Glock 34. FastFire 2s had some problems with the tiny screws falling out but were replaced quickly, only problem being that I needed to have 2 in rotation at all times with one on the gun and one heading back to be replaced. Any of them will work, I prefer the Aimpoint H1 because it is small but it's too pricey for me to buy for a fun gun. Th
  8. Over 6 power I would prefer FFP for 3 gun. A couple of years ago at Rocky Mountain we used a rifle sling on one of the long range stages. I had a lot of trouble hitting targets past 200, my zero range, and later found that the power ring had moved from 6x to 3x. That meant the hold overs on my Swaro 1-6 BRT (SFP) were only worth half of what they should have been (e.g. a 2 mil hold, about 27" for a 400 yard target, would only be worth 1 mil or about 13.5"). With a 1-6 scope I can run at full power on long shots where the holds are correct. With a 8 or 10 power scope I probably wouldn't wa
  9. I went with a VG6 Precision Gamma 556 on my 10.5 SBR after using one on a full auto 10.5" prop gun last year at NWMGC. I was impressed with how flat it stayed in full auto and figured it should be good semi-auto as well. I have not been disappointed. Doug
  10. Works pretty good, I've had a few jams. I put in the paperwork to SBR a Quarter Circle 10 lower so I have separate.223 and 9mm SBRs. Saves shifting parts. Doug
  11. For my 8.3" I took an old .223 comp and Dremeled it out. Works fine, didn't cost anything. Doug
  12. The new rules, 41f. Trusts were the hot ticket in the past but now they are receiving more scrutiny. Trusts often have multiple people on them and they all have to be vetted. I'd be willing to bet that they are running different examiners on Trusts and Individuals. Doug
  13. Biggest factor now is whether you filed as a Trust or an Individual. Individual Form 1s are coming through from May 2017. Trusts are running 10-14 months. NFA Tracker has pretty good data. Calling the NFA branch will tell you a lot but not everything. Doug
  14. There are still advantages to trusts but speed is not one of them. Doug
