  1. Have used them for several home gunsmithing jobs. Excellent company.
  2. I understand the safety concerns with inexperienced shooters attempting to shoot while moving. I have trained hundreds, maybe thousands of soldiers to shoot while moving. Safety was never the problem, hitting the target is. You are not going to see hundreds of shooters breaking the 170 or dropping loaded guns, you will see a lot of misses till they learn the technique or just stop and shoot like they do now, which is what most will do. The speed some shooters sprint between shooting positions is far more dangerous then a smooth pace while shooting is. Every 170 violation I have seen has been because a shooter was sprinting between positions, slipped and fell, dropping a gun. IMHO moving smoothly and shooting while moving is actually safer.
  3. DPMS type use easily available magazines. Stoner/Armalite only use their proprietary mags.
  4. I retired from Active duty Army in 2003. This past weekend for the first time since, I practiced failure drills (Mozambique some call it) was pleasantly surprised I could still do it in under 2 seconds. Don't mess with the old guys.
  5. I consider myself a pretty decent shot and enjoy a challenging stage with more difficult targets. My better half of 42 years (alias May B Knott) however has poorer eyesight and a lot less training and experience, yet the smile on her face after a clean stage/match is way worth the current standards embraced by the majority of SASS. So yeah, big easy to hit targets make it more fun for everyone, even if you're not that one.
  6. I would add, compliments to the shooter for not dropping the gun and maintaining 170.
  7. I have. Excellent addition to my MEC9000. The wife even mentioned that the shells load easier that before.
  8. You have to loosen the buffer tube to insert the retaining pin, then tighten to hold the pin in under spring pressure. Yes loose parts rattling around will cause problems.

    Jus cuz you caint see em, don't mean they aint shiny. I stand by my statement. 44WCF shiny cases even after firing...
  10. Correct. Course that would never happen cuz ya know... rifle not last
  11. Seen this one before and got it wrong... No Call. Totally legal to stage pistols after the course of fire has started and fire other guns.
  12. Click 1 = safety notch. click 2 = bolt releases cylinder. click 3 = bolt locks cylinder. click 4 = hammer locks in sear. I'm not a gunsmith so not sure that 3 and 4 could be timed to happen together. He could have just ground off the safety notch on the hammer, I have heard some do that since no one actually uses it in CAS, and it is unreliable.
  13. I had a similar problem. Ended up being the spring that kicks out the final, finished cartridge. It had a bur on the end and did not fit all the way into the hole, causing it to interfere with the part that pushes the case into station 1.
