Extended safety for Tristar P-120

I've recently bought a Tristar P-120 and was wondering who makes an extended safety for it? Is there a specific CZ model that would work?

Thank you.

Re: Reloading with best Dies

The major difference in dies is features. Fancier dies will have better lock rings or control over OAL. For handgun ammo, I doubt you'll ever see a difference in accuracy between the cheapest and the most expensive. For rifle ammo, there is an advantage in using a fancy seating die for those who wan...

Re: Barrel question?

I've been sizing all my 9mm bullets to .358 for years, and have yet to find a factory barrel that wouldn't chamber them. How are they not chambering?

But to answer your question, it should be a Duracoat/Cerecoat type finish. The wear on my barrel's finish is far too extensive to be melonited.

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

No doubt, but now I'm into an entry fee for NAZC here mid May and have to figure out if it's worth pushing my recovery to be prepared for it.
I've heard that's a good match, though I've never been. A few of the dedicated shooters from here in El Paso/Las Cruces/Alamo make the trip for it.

Better to pack up and try it again than to miss twice as many competitions trying to push through it.

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

I'll get some videos up later today, but I just got back from The Empire Strikes Back 2019 3-gun. It was a 2-day, 9 stage event and is sponsored by the SUPS shooting range is St George UT and 3-gun UK. In fact, everyone one is my squad of 14 were Brits except for 2 of us. This is a week+ vacation fo...

Re: About my load

I stopped shooting Alliant pistol powders years ago for that reason, along with I'm not a fan of anything but the smallest flake powders for small charge weights. For replicating a Bullseye load, I would recommend you look at are Accurate #2 and Shooters World Clean Shot (used to be Accurate #2 year...

Re: Low PF 9mm for us non-reloader competition shooters

Most domestic 9mm loads will make about 135 PF in the 115 and 124 loadings. 147 loadings tend to be a bit stronger. You can google "9mm minor" for some examples of ammo specifically meant to make PF and no more. Here is an example. https://atlantaarms.com/products/9mm-147gr-select-fmj.html The price...

Re: Shoot it right out of the box?

Inspect, yes, absolutely. For both safety and possible warranty needs.

Cleaning it though? For a modern firearm, no, I don't think it is necessary. For anything surplus, yeah, I would say clean it first.

https://youtu.be/U730LZtWpGg Here is me shooting the USPSA Classifier CM 18-04 "Didn't You Send the Mailman" with my PCC. With my hit factor, I got 87% on it, which is a low master score. Just to show you how razor tight scoring can be near the top, if I had shot one less Charlie and one more Alpha...

Re: Who "Deprimes" before Cleaning?

Most people who deprime before cleaning are going to wet tumble and use some sort of stainless steel media. I could see doing it if I was going to sell my brass, because some people will pay more for spotless brass. But, just for me? Nah. It's the same reason I don't scrub my guns spotless when I cl...

Re: New load question for you fellow Competition shooters

I can't say for the Springco springs, but my Canik using the Glock Gen 3 guide rod with a 13lbs spring would almost certainly run that load. Keeping your gun stock isn't necessary, especially in the long run when the cost of the parts gets forgotten. 135 PF is basically factory ammo, but shooting a ...

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

Mental mistakes happen. Good accuracy is the most important thing for new shooters, because once speed gets involved it is very hard to go back and tighten up groups. IDPA rules are different, but they are much better than they used to be. MUCH better. Under the old set way too many penalties were s...

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

It is, but you get used to it. It is also our clubs #1 source of DQs, even for experienced shooters.

But, I'd rather have people learn to watch the 180 at a local match. Most big competitions I go to have about 10% of the shooters DQ, and mostly because they can't watch their 180.
