    Dang!  ID on the barrel nut is what, 1.182"?  So it would just clear if you took 0.018" off the comp OD?  Or, opened the ID of your barrel nut 0.018"?  0.009" off the thread height.


    Not enough meat on it to this. I like your thinking though.

    It's a 9mm carbine so blowback and no gas port. The comp is 1.2" in diameter. It's a linear comp too. And on a 9mm. So it racks up a stupid trifecta and wins and places for being useless.







  3. My first build is an AR9. Had the compensator welded/pinned to the barrel. Brought it home today to discover the barrel nut doesn’t fit over the comp. The comp is aluminum. Is there a chance that it could be drilled and removed or I’m I screwed? Comp is a KAW Valley slim line XL. Handguard is KAW Valley Konza.  I’m assuming I’d run into the same problem  with all the handguards?  Man I’m stupid.

    Of those, I highly recommend S&T. Joe Riedy gives an excellent class that is close to home, it is affordable and a required a reasonable round count.

    I’m 90% sure I will be at Pistol II on 6/15.

    I try to take a couple of classes a year from Joe. It’s a great tune up

    Where is he doing his training at? His website states Steel City Gun Club but according to they’re website it’s permanently closed.

    That is a false assumption!  You do not need to be good to shoot matches... Just need to be SAFE!  Most of the local matches are filled with weekend warriors.  As long as you are safe, you are more than welcome!  

    Agree. I just started last year myself. It’s a ton of fun. You’ll never want to shoot paper again.

    Wilson Combat 9mm X-TAC with Light Rail. Exactly 310 rounds through it. Fluted and crowned barrel, slide serrations, all original materials and 8 mags. This gun was so pretty, Wilson used it in their ads before selling it to me. Still thinking about a price. PM me if you have any interest...XTAC-Compact-Rail_2feathered.thumb.jpg.ebb85515e1a55a8fa11e687f101de2d6.jpg

    She’s a beauty but way out of my price range.

  7. I picked up a Ruger MK IV Hunter back in Nov.  I plan on shooting steel challenge matches with it once I get some more trigger time on it. Love the feel and weight of it. Take down for cleaning is awesome.Trigger is good but I see guys installing Volquartsen trigger kits on them. Rear site is v-notch which I don’t like and will be changing out soon.  Fiber on front which I like. Ambi mag drop which is easy to remove right button if you don’t like/ need it. I see a lot of them at the matches.

    I looked into the Victory which does seem to be good bang for the buck.

    Heard great things about the Buckmark. But the Ruger fit me for what I was looking for and looking to spend.


  8. Okay Ladies and Gentlemen I  have a permit to burn soon and figured I’d see what you all have first before heading to the new market. I’m open to 9mm or .45. Help me help you pay off your holiday debt.

    I plan on heading down to Cabelas next week, I have it narrowed down to either a Browning Citori or Cynergy Field.  I have shot them both and might like the Cynergy just a tad bit more. 

    Of course I wouldn't rule out a Beretta, but I am definitely leaning toward a Browning.

    I have a Cynergy along with a shooting buddy of mine and love it. A few of the other guys have Citori’s. Can’t go wrong with any of the “B’s”. Just find the one that fits you.
