Those seem to be a bit of a rarity. Cool guns though. How do you like yours?

They are amazing. Fit, finish, and accuracy of ANY custom gun I have owned. Very soft shooting too.

Nice. I have never seen one in person, only the internet. So as far as USPSA classes, it is a Production gun, correct?

Yes. Production, Carry Optics, Limited Minor, etc. They are also making a .40 Limited Major gun too.

When the limited major gun comes around I might have to check it out 😀

It's on the website to check out. They are sourcing .40 barrels but Stuart told me it should happen this year. It is a beauty with hard chrome and all the works.

Not sure what the CZ discussion has to do with OP's question.  Or 1911-style pistols for that matter.

Ok. Good point. Admin can delete as needed. We can take to PM if @LmtdOnehas any more questions. Onwards and upwards!

I'm starting to regret Open Division in general.  I'm a relatively new participant in USPSA this being my 3rd season.  I started shooting Limited minor with an old Sig P226 and quickly fell in love with the sport.  I graduated to an STI DVC Limited within the first 4 months.  The more I traveled to matches the more people I saw shooting Open guns and it looked like awesome fun.  I had to have one.  2021 is my first season shooting Open.  Now I spend an inordinate amount of time tinkering with equipment trying to get it to run consistently.  I'm certainly no gunsmith and my rural, isolated location limits my access to experienced people who might be able to help diagnose and correct my malfunction issues.  YouTube is my only resource LOL.  I'm not ready to give up but, frustration is building.

I have found nearly all my issues have always been ammo related. What is going on? Can we try and help?

I don't want to hijack the thread.  I'll make original post with details later tonight. Thanks for offering to help.

Ok, looking forward to it!

Thanks you for this.  I am almost in the exact same boat.  I haven't been in any official competitions yet just shooting at our small club/range on a small island in the pacific ocean, about as rural and limited access to any gun stuff as you can get.  I do love to travel and would like to make competition shooting a part of my travel plans.   

 

I have a a pair of CZ P-09's that I plan to shoot in carry optics, and there a guy in our club that has an STI 2011 that shoots amazingly flat..  it's almost like he's cheating..  lol.. we don't separate our group in "classes" we just shoot together and for fun basically.  We do keep track of times and have a point system and run a short series..   I'm currently in the 2nd with my Carry optics CZ's behind my fried  with the flat shooting STI and 1st in PCC which I was swapping between a JP GMR-15 and a CZ Scorpion.   

 

I have been lusting over STI's and SVI's lately wanting to get into the open class and flat shooters.   However like you have personally experienced, I have seen my friend getting jammed up a few times and having to constantly work out loads and springs etc..  I really don't see myself reloading and adjusting much on my pistol except for what I've done to it initially.  Once the trigger, grip and mag release has the right feel and positioning I just want to shoot as fast as I can, using off the shelf ammo. (40cal so I'm in the Major PF without having to reload)  I hope you work out your issues and the sport becomes fun again, thanks for your honesty, it has curbed down my need for an STI or SVI for the time being.  I would love to build an Open CZ with 40SW if I can and may go that direction even more so now.

In Open division the issues  mostly are ammo related as pointed out previously, once you "tailored"  the ammo ( OAL, PF and recoil spring) is just keep it lubed.. Don't give up
