  1. This might or might not be news in USA. The EU Commission has submitted to the European Parliament a proposal for a revised Firearms directive. This article sums it pretty well, so far: https://www.all4shooters.com/en/Shooting/law/Firearms-United-EU-Gun-Ban-ongoing/ The list to define rifles that they want to ban might look familiar: 1) Semiautomatic firearms converted from full auto firearms 2) Semiautomatic firearms with 2 or more characteristics from the list: a) folding stock pistol grip c) 2 or more Picatinny rails d) option to mount Bayonett; e) firearms shorter than 830 mm; 3. Firearms with barrel shorter than 450 mm; 4. Semiautomatic firearms using the same ammunition as used by military forces if they have one or more from point (2), namely 5.45 mm x 36; 7.62 mm x 39; 7.62 mm x 54; .223 Remington; .308 Winchester; .30-06
  2. WHAT: The Palmetto Sniper Challenge at Clinton House is a 3-day, ruck-style sniper match that will test the fitness, marksmanship, and determination of 2-man sniper teams in 3 different divisions. Teams may enter in a division where they; ruck and camp, just ruck, or ride to the stages. It is the most realistic sniper match in the country. A team of carefully selected Subject Matter Experts have lent their experience and expertise to build a sniper match that is unparalleled. Several have taken part in the setup or competed in the annual USASOC International Sniper competition. The SMEs are comprised of warfighters, LEOs, and competitive marksmen from elite military units and law enforcement agencies from around the country. Represented are: 3rd, 5th, and 7th Special Forces Groups of the US Army, JSOC, MARSOC, Force Recon Marines, FBI, CIA, Durham NC SWAT, and Minneapolis SWAT. The 12 stages will be divided into two categories. Roughly half the stages will be based on historical engagements from conflicts around the world or law enforcement engagements around the US. The other half will require the teams to successfully demonstrate the skills necessary to complete the curriculums of the toughest sniper schools in the nation. WHERE: The match will take place on 2000 wooded acres in the rolling hills of upstate South Carolina. The Clinton House Plantation near Clinton, SC will host the match. It is a world class hunting and shooting facility and frequently home to national level Sporting Clays and 3Gun and Long-Range competitions. Full banquet facilities, a lodge, and onsite competitor housing are just a few of the amenities that The Clinton House Plantation has to offer. WHEN: Friday February 16th through Sunday February 18th, 2018 WHY: The Palmetto Sniper Challenge is a competition to test the skill of Military and Law Enforcement sniper teams and competitive marksmen. It will test their Fitness, Marksmanship, Patience, Determination, and Resourcefulness. It is a thinker's match. It is also as much of a "conference" as it is a competition. Teams from elite federal agencies and combat units around the country will gather to collaborate, network, and share fellowship, training techniques, experiences, and equipment. SPECIAL AWARDS: will be presented to the high Military and high Law Enforcement teams in the LRRP DIVISION. The Match Director and a representative of the Title Sponsor, Presenting Sponsor and the LRRP DIVISION sponsor (if they so choose) will present those team’s Commanding officer with a floating cup similar to the Stanley Cup or America’s Cup. The trophy will be engraved with the winning team members names and kept at the winning team’s unit until the next match. The trophies will be returned to the match to be presented to next years winner. Palmetto Sniper Challenge is on FB ...... https://www.facebook.com/Palmetto-Sniper-Challenge-at-Clinton-House-FEB-16-18-2018-695397270644764/ And registration is open on Practiscore...... https://practiscore.com/palmetto-sniper-challenge-at-the-clinton-house/register Hope to see you in February. Please do not hesitate to contact me with questions. Very Respectfully, Joe Burdick Rs3matchdesign@gmail.com 910-730-8033
  3. For many Tikka is the brand to go to when they want a rifle that is guaranteed accurate but doesn't cost an arm and a leg. Many just don't like the simple stocks, and put them in any one of the many aftermarket options. Now, Tikka has a model with a modular chassis on the way. http://www.thefirearmblog.com/blog/2016/06/15/new-tikka-unveiled-t3x-tac-a1/ Not sure when it will be available. Finnish shops seem to expect it in a couple of months. Sako - Tikka should have it at Shot Show, in about 2 weeks.
  4. anyone have any experience with Elftmann triggers?
  5. Wanting some input on what you guys find gives you the best grip for your PCC? I have looked at several magpul but they seem to be just hard plastic which is not good in sweaty hands etc.
  6. I have had the Wilson Combat AR9 G now for almost eight months and am finding that I can't buy parts to maintain this rifle,in fact many don't even have a part number listed for them. I wanted to get new ejector springs which I was finally able to do by description but they won't send out the "pins" that hold the injector or their proprietary ejector plunger in place. I find that I have one that is loose in the bolt but I would have to send in the rifle for them to review. Now I own several of Wilson pistols as well and this is the first I have ever had a problem with getting parts needed to maintain my equipment and am wondering if anyone else is experiencing this, specifically with regard to the 9 mm AR 9 G rifle? The folks you talk to are all very nice but just say "we don't send out those parts". I have never had a company refuse to send parts out to maintain their product and so am really confused and frustrated. For me to have to send in my rifle to check a pin in the BCG is nothing short of a hassle in my opinion. Now I am very worried about other parts I might need going forward and thought I would reach out to others that might have some insight on this. The only parts listed for sale on their web site are the firing pin and firing pin spring. Thanks. Mike

  12. Topton Fish and Game and Ontelaunee Rod and Gun Club will be holding a 3 Gun series in 2016. It will be a four match series with all matches counting towards the prize table, but you can qualify for prizes shooting as little as one match. The match fee will be $30.00 per match, with a one time $30.00 fee if you want to be eligible for the prize table. The total for all 4 matches and the prize table will be $150.00. The prize table be made up up cash and some other prizes donated by sponsors. We will also hold a drawing for random cash prizes. Anyone that is eligible for the prize table and doesn’t finish in the cash or prizes will be entered into this random draw raffle. All cash and prizes are dependent upon the number of people that enter the points series by paying the extra $30.00. Once we know how many people have entered the points series we will announce the payout amounts. This match is more about having fun and introducing new people to the sport than having a big prize table. Points will be given by order of finish, the winner getting 100 points, 2nd place getting 98, third 97,4th 96 and so on. The winner gets one extra bonus point as we have done in the past. The matches will be April 17 and September 18 at Topton Fish and Game May 21 and October 30 at Ontelaunee Rod and Gun Club You will use all three guns at all the matches and we will be using the 200 yard range at Topton and the 300 yard range at Ontelaunee at both matches. We will honor the following divisions. Open, Tactical Optics, Limited (irons, or non-magnified dot), and Pistol Caliber Carbine. The prize table for each division will be based on the number of entries in that division, If we have less than 6 people in a division we will not payout for that division, but I will make posts here and notify the people in those divisions so they can switch division if they want. Division rules will follow 3 Gun Nation guidelines. For pistol caliber Carbine division we will have different long range targets, similar to what 3 gun nation is doing. We will only accept registration for people paying for and registering for all four matches until February 26th. You do not have to enter the point series to register early, just enter for all four matches, then from then until a week before the match you may register for 3 or less matches until the match is full. series entry form.pages.zip
  13. Had a local match this last weekend, finished 7th out of 25, looking to shave a few more seconds. anyone see something to comment on?
  14. The second URC rifle match is open for registration. This is a new club on the map for rifle matches. They were formed more than 100 years ago to train soldiers how to shoot in WWI. There are two classes: DMR - A scoped rifle with an optic capable of greater than 6x, or a bipod used. Any non-magnum caliber. RECCE - Any optic 6x or under and no bipod. Any non-magnum caliber. Most 3-gun rigs are well suited to participate in this class. This is an all rifle match. There is no pistol required. We will shoot six or seven stages and be on our way home by 1pm. Round count will follow but should be just north of 100 if you have occasion to fire them all. Max distance is 500Y for both classes. Min distance = 100Y. Expect lots of walking and running movers, distance shots, and flagrant use of the shooting tower. Don't be scared of the distance shots if you've never done them. Most are "shoot until you hit it." If you are a 3 gun shooter, your rifle game will definitely rise up with this kind of practice, and the longer shots won't be something to worry about anymore.

  15. I wasn't sure where to post this, so if a mod needs to move it, no butthurt here. Here is my pictorial for DIY silhouette targets. I've never measured them, but they are pretty close to life size. From now on say "Paper" not plastic. Cut it in half. Cut the top to the back. BOOM. Free sorta IDPA targets.
  16. I am trying to tighten up groups that tend to vertically spread as the barrel heats. I attribute this to tolerance stacking on the barrel extension to receiver fit. I have stainless shim stock to use to shim. My question is do you wrap around to the timing pin and leave a full length space for it or do you wrap all the way around and notch for the pin?

  18. Has anyone heard of one of these? I would think it would be pretty easy to make, just wondering if anyone has made one? I know I could put a piece of rail on the end and use a Larue Q/D mount, but would love to have one that just attaches to the keymod itself. The other question does anyone run key mod with a q/d bipod, if so how do you do it?

  20. Local club has informal 50 yard .22 Benchrest shooting and I'd like to participate by purchasing either a Kidd or Clark Custom 10/22. I have a choice of a one or a two stage trigger. Having never shot a two stage, I am reluctant to order my gun with one. So my questions are: Which company should I purchase from and why? Which trigger should I purchase and why? Is the Leupold 40 power Competition Scope worth the extra money over a Weaver T36? Thanks for your help.
  21. Hello Everyone, I just wanted to get feedback on a custom build order I am about to submit to JP Enterprises. I have weighed the cost vs. benefit of building my own rifle, and decided (for a number of reasons) that I want JP to build mine. Their designs, craftsmanship, etc all fall in line with exactly the rifle I am looking for, so I really won't need to change a thing when I finally get it. My Build: JP-15 Upper/Lower Platform, Matte Black Anodized in .223 Wylde -18" Supermatch, 1:8 twist, light contour, black Teflon finish -Standard JP TRE-2 Comp, blended, black -Handguard: JP MK III Signature Tube, 15.5" Extra Long -Low Profile JP Adjustable Gas, black -JP Thermal Dissipator, black -TI-7 Adjustable Stock -Low Mass JP Carrier, black -JP Silent Captured Spring, std. weight -Comp Trigger, JP 3-3.5 lb. -Magpul MIAD grip, black -US Flag Lasermark (yup, it's happening) -2 inch rail for front sight, 12:00 position I actually called JP with a rough idea of what I was trying to build, and they were super helpful in helping me put together a solid build. Unfortunately, their CMT hours are hard for me to reach during a normal workday, so I figured you all could help. I am debating the Mk 3 Rapid Config tube instead of the signature, but it is really hard to tell from the website photos how aggressive the knurling is? I know the Mk 2 and prior were smooth aluminum, but the new Rapids are definitely textured. Just wondering if anyone runs this tube and how rough it really is? The weight savings of 3 ounces is worth considering (and no backplates needed for rail attachments). Also, does anyone have an 18" light bbl JP with (relatively) similar arrangements? The JP rifle builder does not specify the total build weight, which seems strange, but I actually put together a spreadsheet and came up with about 7.8 lbs (Signature tube), or 7.6 lbs (Rapid tube). Anyways, I know that was probably a boring read, but I am super pumped about submitting this order and want it to be perfect! Regards, Al
  22. Tomorrow, the UPS driver will be delivering a batch of Lucas Oil Contact Cleaner and Extreme Duty Gun Oil. I'm hoping to retire all of my FrogLube products. They work fine, but I expect to get slightly better performance out of the Lucas Oil product line, given how I operate. However, I am missing at least one thing. What would be a good grease for higher wear locations on all three guns? Or am I over thinking this because the Extreme Duty product won't need the grease in spots? I'm accustomed to putting grease on slide rails and the like. Maybe one of the Lucas sponsored shooters has an opinion? Thank you all for your input and assistance.
  23. Hey everyone! First, let me say I wasn't sure exactly where the right place to put this topic is, so to the moderators if this is in the wrong section of the forum please move it wherever it should be. Now, the reason I'm posting this thread is to discuss an idea that I've had for a while now. For years I've loved the idea of a race gun - lightweight, fast, powerful, accurate. Tuned machines that combine form and function to produce masterpieces of engineering and art. In addition, for nearly as long I've had a passion for AR-type and similar platforms, but in particular I really honestly am enthralled with the relatively recent trend of manufacturers releasing pistol versions of their well-known rifles and carbines. I recently acquired a new Sig Sauer P516 AR pistol, chambered in 5.56 with 7.5" barrel, and it has quickly and without question established itself as my current favorite gun. The reason I'm explaining all of this is because I only recently had a laughably strange thought, that has snowballed into a serious curiosity... Would it be possible to build an Open division race gun out of a pistol-caliber carbine-based pistol? I have one specific in mind - The new Sig MPX-P, a new proprietary platform developed by Sig, modular in design and available in a pistol variant. Here are some of the most important specs of the platform, if you're interested in reading about it more thoroughly please head over to Sig's product page (I would post a link but can't yet); - Chambered in 9mm, .40S&W or .357SIG - 8 inch barrel - 10, 20, and 30 round mags available - Side-folding stock with AR buffer tube and pistol stabilizing brace is removable (and would be removed for my purposes) Now, a quick disclaimer before I get laughed off the forum - I'm not insane. I am in NO WAY expecting a giant six or seven pound rifle-pistol to be competitive with and stand a chance of beating a highly-tuned, featherweight 2011. If winning was my goal, I'd be thinking about an STI or similar, a traditional more compact handgun. All I want to accomplish with this build would be to simply have some fun, do something differently than everyone else, and end up with a unique, enjoyable oddball of a pistol for my collection. As for more specifically which competitions set of Open Division regulations I wanted to frame my build within, another long-time favorite came to mind - Action Pistol/The Bianchi Cup. Much to my delight, after reading through the official rulebook for AP, I found there are nearly no limitations set on Open Division pistols. In fact the gist of my understanding of regulations for AP Open is "If it's safe, and it shoots at least a 9mm or bigger, you're good to go.". Not only that but I've always loved the brute, raw functionality of the open division guns - with raw blocks of metal on either side of the barrel shroud as barricade wings, tubular red dots, compensators, grip tape plastered all over the gun. That's the style in which I would like to modify an MPX. So, with everything I've just said, I'd like to hear from the experienced AP Open division shooters about this idea. When commenting, PLEASE keep in mind that I am NOT thinking I can slap a red dot and a couple wings on the the rails of this massive "pistol" and have even the slimmest chance at beating a race gun that's been designed, engineered and manufactured from the ground up, three times over, to win an Open Division title in AP. All I really need to know is if I've missed anything that would specifically bar the use of such a pistol-caliber carbine-pistol as the MPX-P? Everything I was able to get my hands on regarding the rules of the various divisions in AP/Bianchi would seem to imply that in the Open Division, truly anything that's safe is allowed to run. Is that a correct understanding? Lastly, before anyone says it, I know I'd have significant problems with finding a workable holster for the platform, just set aside that concern for now. Please post comments, thoughts, questions, etc. - Constructive criticism is always welcome, as long as it is constructive. Thank you all in advance!
  24. just competed in an all-rifle match yesterday and i was fairly happy with my performance. I currently have a Eotech Red Dot and a magnifier with a flip-mount. When i watch video of the top 3-gunners, i see them all using scopes rather than a red dot. with the amount of close-up rifle targets in a typical match (i.e. less than 50 yards), i'd think that target acqusition with a red dot would be much faster. so what's the reason here?
