  1. Agree with OPENB. I had The same issue last year at NAZC. Fortunately there was some folks from Dillon shooting the match. They told me to check the tension in the spring plus make sure the collar wasn't cracked. Sure enough the collar was cracked. Replaced it as well as the spring and nut. Solved my problem
  2. I got the .356 diameter. My OAC is 1.131. Using 3.4 gr of titegroup. Shot another 100 rounds in a plate rack Tuesday. Going to shoot a USPSA match Sunday using them.
  3. I just ran 20 rounds of the Brazos 125 gr 9mms bullet thru my Shadow 2 this afternoon. Accuracy was outstanding. Just placed another order with them.
  4. Jimmy at 1911 Speed Shop is my choice. Work is fast and quality is outstanding. I agree with having it appraised before ! I chopped it up
  5. Like CHA-LEE mentioned above. I have now shot 4 matches using Decot glasses. No distortion at all. Before when ROing a stage it was difficult to see 9mms holes from a distance. Now there is no problem seeing them. And in a plus side if you have flex credit they will reimburse you.
  6. I've purchased 3 guns from Brazos. They all run like a charm. Years ago I did have an issue with my Limited Gun 3 weeks before nationals. Contacted Bob about the issue. He paid for the freight both ways being shipped and had it back to me within 5 days. To me, service like that is worth the extra money. I wouldn't hesitate getting a few more from them.
  7. Shot a match today using my new Decot glasses. 1st impression is why didn't I purchase these years ago. Took their advise and wore the glasses 30 minutes before hammer down. Good advice. Front sight was clear as could be. The wrap around ear arm really didn't bother me. Tried using the side protectors on the temples but that bugged the crap out of me so I didn't use them. Overall extremely happy with the purchase.
  8. I have been looking at the Decot Glasses now for a few years. I spoke with Robert at Area 2 last year and was very impressed. Read CHA-LEE's post about his purchase from them and decided to purchase a pair. I have tried all the top manufacturers for my prescription in the past and nothing has worked so far. Going to match Saturday and going to try them out. I always wear contacts so this will be a first. I'll update my impression (Good-Bad or both) of them after the match. stay tuned.
  9. I shot with Tiger this year at Area 2. Real nice guy. Wasn't shy about letting you handle his gun in the safe area. His mount is solid
  10. Just purchased a new S2. Buddy of mine strongly recommended the Patriot Defense base pads. I'll be getting 6 of them friday.
  11. I checked out Tiger's (from Tevo Sports) open gun with a Holuson 510 sight on it. The window was huge. Made for quick pick up of the dot. Their mounts for the 510 is solid.
  12. Tripp is the only way to go. It's nice to talk to someone (Virgil or Aaron) if you have an issue. They stand behind their product 100%.
  13. I notice the difference between the 200's compared to the 180's. To me the 180's are a bit more snappy which I like. Brazos Gun Works wrote an article in the Front Site magazine a few issues ago which was extremely interesting. Black and Blue Bullets make a 190 gr round nose bullet. Shot about 500 of them and my gun loves them. Problem is they are a tad expensive. Try both and see which one you like most.
  14. I purchased hellcats a few months ago due to my speedcross' needed replacing. I was sort of reluctant at 1st but after reading a different thread on these shoes i decided to try them. I am pleased with them overall. I have worn them on gravel surfaces as well as Rocky surfaces. I must admit the Rocky surface made my feet sore but wearing the speedcross had the same effect.
  15. I will only use Tripp mags for my 1911’s. Virgil and Aaron have helped me out tremendously when I had an issue. Great folks to to talk to on the phone.
