Re: Mossberg MC1-SC

Is the weird trigger angle just an optical illusion, or does it really pivot like a light switch?

Re: New here from The Netherlands

Welcome Richard. You'll find the SFx makes a great polymer competition gun (I'm guessing that's about all you can use it for in the Netherlands) after a few tweaks.

Unlike @higgybaby , I actually remember my two trips to Amsterdam; 2015 and 2018. :-D

Re: What are you doing on the 4th

I'll be starting my 2 week vacation in Alaska. On the 4th we'll probably be stopping in Homer and then watching the salmon run in the Kenai River. It's crazy up there as any fireworks shows don't start until 11-midnight. Even then, it's still not really dark but darkish, enough to see the fireworks...

Re: TP9SFX Mag Release Button IDPA SSP

8.2.1.2-C should get you by. Sadly, many IDPA rules are poorly written and are open to multiple interpretations. 8.2.1.3-B specifically excludes aftermarket mag releases, but if you use the short version it shouldn't be an issue. Further, unless you smoke everybody, no one is going to care. If you'r...

Re: picatinney optics mount

Also be aware that if you decide to compete in a USPSA match, using a underside pic rail mount puts you into Open class with the hot-rod guns. Carry Optics class requires the dot to be slide mounted.

Re: Sfx groupings

A couple months ago at a USPSA match I had a couple of mikes (misses) and a few more D's than I would normally have. Surely the dot had lost its normal aim point, or the new gallant rounds I'd loaded were inconsistent. Or both. I went to the range the following week with a lead-shot bag and rounds f...

Re: Taurus Spectrum

I can only relate my personal experience having owned both the LCP and the Spectrum. I had the LCP and hated to shoot the darned thing..

Re: VOTE FOR BERNIE!!!!!!!!!!

As much as I hate to admit it, if the dems ever nominate a sane person as their candidate, they would likely easily win the white house.

But since they keep pushing nut jobs like Bernie, Kamala, and Cory onto The Sheep, we're probably safe for a while.

Re: Favorite 22LR and why.

CCI produced a polymer coated round last year that has become my favorite. Why? It's super clean. The action , breech, muzzle, bore, and compensator are amazingly cleaner after a long day of shooting then would be with normal exposed lead ammo. I'm so impressed I'm on my second box of 3k rounds.

Re: ACME Bullets 20% Discount Code...UPDATE!

I've tried acme 135s and 147s, Gallant 147, and Bayou 145. Of those, the Acme 135 is by far the best performing in my SFx.

Re: Can anybody explain to me why......

Because selling little items like this are more of a hassle than a money maker. A two-pack doubles gross dollars, and the high shipping and handling covers the ordering, inventory, packaging, whiners, returns, and actual freight, of something they would rather not sell anyway. Most companies know wh...

Re: TP9SFX Plunk test

As Tejas mentioned, it's totally, totally, dependant on bullet grain and profile. Acme 147 RNFP will plunk easily at 1.160, as they are very arrow shaped, but that length is getting iffy with consistent feeding inside the magazine; any longer than that they bind up. 1.150" is rock steady. Gallant 14...

Re: Ultrasonic cleaning of firearms

I was debating getting one of these to thoroughly clean the SFX frame. Plan was to take it down as if swapping the trigger, removing the "Locking Block", "Trigger/Bar Assembly" and the "Ejector Block" with the sear components, and cleaning them separately in the ultrasonic cleaner. Once clean, remo...

Mossberg 715T .22lr rifle. At a glance it looks like an AR, but it's most definitely not. It was a Jam-o-matic. Horribly finicky on ammo; it would only cycle the slide with the most powerful hv ammo. And oh, so miserable to clean. You had to remove about 12 tiny screws to get it apart. Just an all a...

Re: PT9SFX and IDPA

You are correct. The SFx uses an 18+2 setup. It's legal in USPSA/Steel Challenge, but will not fit the box for IDPA. The base plate can be changed to the 18 round version, but with pre-Christmas pricing you may be able to find complete 18 rnd mags cheap. IDPA rules are geared toward Defensive use (t...

FWIW, common foam shaving cream works as a great ant-fog for lenses. Put a dab on your fingers, rub it into a previously cleaned lens, then buff 'clean' with a soft cloth.
