Re: That firearm in an unpopular/oddball chambering

If anyone needs 9mm bullets for reloading, Everglades has some 124gr FMJ back in stock:

Re: That firearm in an unpopular/oddball chambering

During the last panic buying spree, I had recently transferred across country and my ammo stock was low. 9mm and .22 were hard to find. I could find some .40 and .357 Sig. I added a M&P .40 and a .357 Sig barrel. Springs and mags are shared, which simplified things. Ammo wasn’t cheap, but I could f...

Re: Ammunition Insecure

I think Dillon has a private sector program to help with that. :lol: I lucked out - I was getting ready for another season of USPSA and already had quite a bit of stuff delivered right before this nonsense started.

Re: That firearm in an unpopular/oddball chambering

My local academy was just about bare ammo shelves - no 9, no 5.56, no .22. They had some .300 win mag and .30-06 left. lol The new bill in the house isn’t going to help. I don’t think they have any chance of passing it but HR 5717 is the most horrific piece of garbage legislation they have tried to ...

That firearm in an unpopular/oddball chambering

I have said it several times before but now is a good time to say it again (as it will really stick in your memory)... While caliber consolidation certainly has some benefits, it is ALWAYS a good idea to have a few firearms chambered for less popular cartridges. That doesn’t mean poor performing - j...

Re: Sore Thumb Issue

I have larger hands and my SFx used to often leave me with a bit of a raw spot on the same place. I use a very high grip to get the bore axis as low in my hands as possible. That started with 1911s decades ago so undoing it would probably take forever. So...I ended up toning down that corner on the ...

Re: And SIG Joins the "BIG GLASS" Battle...

Second caveat - the foot print is 54mm x 36mm for the XL and 54 x 33mm for the 3Max.

Either may require some slide milling or a custom optics plate.

Re: And SIG Joins the "BIG GLASS" Battle...

That isn’t Sig’s big biggie.

The Romeo 3 Max is big at 1x30mm but...
the Romeo 3 XL is massive at 1x35mm.

Caveat: the 3XL is $600 street at the moment.

Re: Blade-Tech Signature Holster

CompTac also makes one for the SFx.

I went with a Weapon DIY holster body slapped on an aluminum drop and offset mount...turn around time was however long it took me to walk to the shop and back. :-D

Re: Weaponizing a PT111 G2?

FreedomSmith has an aluminum trigger for the G2C that eliminates the blade safety. That is tempting despite the cost. Suggestions for any PT111/G2C build... The important ones first.

Re: Weaponizing a PT111 G2?

The Keep Tinkering SAO trigger is worth it if you don’t mind losing the trigger blade safety and restrike. The trigger blade safety seems odd to me - much like the one on the SAR9 as it and the G2C also have an affirmative thumb safety. On the other hand, that thumb safety lets you do crazy stuff to...

Re: Weaponizing a PT111 G2?

I bought a $199 G2C in late 2018. Still had the annoying trigger catch from the blade safety. Was able to polish it out slightly; not as bad now, but still annoying. I don't like the hyper-aggressive group texturing so I sanded it down slightly, to tone it down a bit. Carrying concealed, wanted to ...

I also recently found a flavor of caffeinated water that I really like...only 2g carbs per pack and if you ‘accidentally’ put two packs in one bottle of water, you end up with 240mg of caffeine and five B vitamins in a convenient 16.8oz bottle.

You go out and dig up a deal on a G2...and then realize you still need accessories to carry it. Dammit!

Re: Weaponizing a PT111 G2?

I almost forgot to mention this... If you come across a used or old stock PT111 G2 in a gun store that looks like a deal, you have to check the mag catch. It should sit flush with the polymer on the non-button side of the frame but they had a run of slightly short mag catches. Just cosmetic? No - th...

Re: Weaponizing a PT111 G2?

Side note: I have noticed lots of people claim they are “really hard guns to work on” but I am not sure I would actually call them hard to work on so much as they just have a few quirks. The newer G2 removed a few of those quirks but they are almost identical to the older PT111. I messed around with...
