Re: How's your gun purchases with the ammo shortage?

Probably picking up an FNX 45 Tactical at some point soon too. Just make sure you get a newer one with the updated magazine followers and mag release. The early ones had issues, I know from experience. Thanks for the tip. I'll look into more info on that. Finally had a chance to handle one today an...

Re: How's your gun purchases with the ammo shortage?

I agree with other comments, I'm looking at upgrades and gathering parts/sights for future guns. I have also found that suppressors are still reasonably priced. If you've considered them, you might want to get a trust setup and get them ordered before you may not have a chance to... Was itching to g...

Re: How's your gun purchases with the ammo shortage?

I have a few guns on my list to buy but can't find them anywhere. When they do pop up they are MSRP or over and I can't pull the trigger knowing they were a couple hundred bucks cheaper not that long ago. Part of me wants to hold out for better deals and part of me knows that the prices may not come...

Re: Will the SAI magwel like from the Combat Elite also fit the SFX mod 2?

The other issue is we cannot get the SAI magwells separately so unless someone took on off of a EC or ECE to put on a SFX, there's no way of really testing it out.

Re: Thinking about an SFX

All Caniks pretty much ship with stiff RSA's as they are designed to run 124gr NATO rounds. It will get better with use but you can also contact Century Arms and get a reduced recoil spring typically for free. That said, if you are getting an SFX, you might as well look into playing with the many mo...

Re: TP9 SFX trigger pull weight?

24 hours for a NICS check? I thought it was all automated online now. At least my FFL just tippytaps some stuff into into his computer and it does magical things. I guess there are many more people buying guns now though. Anyway, congrats. You'll love the SFX and there are plenty of mods to keep you...

Re: What did you pay for the Elite Subcompact?

I haven't watched prices on the SC lately but you can use the link below to compare prices if it's even in stock. Looks like nobody has them. If you do find one in stock, I'm guessing you'll be paying a bit more for it with all the panic buying. https://gun.deals/search/apachesolr_search/787450608917

Re: Sarsilmaz made Annoucment of new Sub model

One real negative on the SAR9 is finding replacement sights. I'm still looking for them. I added a spring kit and a new trigger but the sights have to go. There's one SAR9 mod thread out there in the interwebs where a guy talks about it. If I recall, I believe the front sight is just a standard Glo...

Re: Sarsilmaz made Annoucment of new Sub model

I do still like my SAR9. Many describe it as a Glock 17 crossed with a VP9. Actually bought a second one when they were really cheap. They are a pretty nice gun but the trigger isn't really great and there isn't really a SAR9 following so accessories are just about nonexistent. This one looks nice b...
