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 ...

Too much coffee again I see.....
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.

Re: Weaponizing a PT111 G2?

You go out and dig up a deal on a G2...and then realize you still need accessories to carry it. Dammit! Anyhoo, I normally make my own holsters whether I want leather, kydex or a hybrid but this time I was in a bit of a crunch for time so I decided to search the vast internets for a deal on a G2 hol...

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...

Re: Weaponizing a PT111 G2?

Between the PT111 G2 and the newest G2, it seems like Taurus finally tweaked the trigger enough to get the weird hitch out of the pull.

I will have to gauge them when I get home but I think the SA pull on all of them is right around 4.0-4.25lbs

Not sure if this will end up being a full tune up thread but...

The top two are SA with re-strike
The bottom one is SAO with a much shorter pull.

Re: Difference in two DA???

Based on the model number and the UPC, HG4873-N appears to be the newer model. The specs sheets look almost identical but the 4873 model indicates “improved DA/SA trigger” which could mean it has slightly lighter springs or the newer nickel plated internal components. Another possible difference cou...

Re: Savage Hunting Rifle Project

hmm may have to look into that, the stock length is fine for me. Any new stock worth having is likely >$150 unless you can find a deal on a take-off but they would probably still want at least $90-$100 for a take-off stock in good condition. Brownell's Acraglass kit is $26 and it has enough for two...
