Re: Cleaning a polymer frame handgun.

Not sure if you would break loose enough carbon build up that way. I'm sure to a certain point it would work, but with limitations. Wouldn't be my first go to way to clean my firearms.

Re: Cleaning a polymer frame handgun.

What do you guys use to clean inside the frame? Can you be more specific. In the mag well? In the trigger assembly/fire control group? I will on a regular basis disassemble my SFx down to the "studs" and clean everything with CLP and polish the rubbing parts of the trigger assembly. OCD has its pri...

Re: OAL On 9mm 125GR Lead Poly Coated Bullets

Using Cajun Bullets RN 145gr (.355") I'm setting OAL at 1.135 +/- 3.

I had measured my commercial rounds and the ran the gambit from 1.090" to 1.145".

As long as you are not compressing the power I don't think it makes a difference. Will they ramp into the barrels of all your 9mm's at that length?

Re: I scored today!!

I'm with @Badgerboy, hoping for just a "little" different thread.

Congrats on the buy; components are getting harder to find without paying too much or a large hazmat fee.

Camera is really impressive given the cost. It's also tiny and easy to attach to the brim of a hat.
I have the RunCam2 which attaches to the brim of my hat using a money clip.

Re: Post your "MATCH" videos/pictures here.

USPSA Tier 1 match yesterday at my home club. Looked like a fun day. There were a couple of triple-taps; were they on purpose or accidental? What camera were you using? The audio sounds a hell of a lot better than the drone camera I'm using. We shot a steel match Sunday and the feels-like was 118 d...

what else fits on SFX?
With the 4 plates that comes with, almost anything. I am a big fan of the Holosun 507C as I use it for competition shooting.

Re: Swampfox Justice

I have the Kingslayer, their first handgun optic, and it's OK. These seem to have more features. But, if you are a military vet they have a discount. Also, in and around holidays they have pretty good sales. Plus they have a 50,000 round warranty. "50,000 Rounds, Guaranteed. If your Swampfox Optic f...

Re: Preferred Ammo for your Caniks

To get the PF low enough ~132 for USPSA shooting I'm using Sport Pistol 3.2gr. with coated 145gr. Cajun Bullets. OAL length is set 1.140 +-2. Widest variance is only 25 FPS (2.7% variance) over a 10 round string. I'm going to try and get it all balanced out to be 130 PF consistently. Sport Pistol cl...
