Just like the IDPA thread, anyone a USPSA shooter?
Just for informational purposes...
I do. I use a Glock 34, this month I'm going to shoot single stack just because.
I use a 34 also! We have our state match coming up in May! Do you have a lot of other Glocks on the firing line? I would say we have aournd 1 glock for every 5-7 shooters.
Prodction is 50% GLock, none in open, a few in Limited. We have lot of Canadian shooter in our club and for some reason they don't' use Glocks, I know they are expensive up there, about $725 for a G17, that may be why.
New USPSA shooter using Glock
I bought a custom built Glock G17L, built by Glockworx, to be used in the Open class. While I have picked up the gun, Glockworx is going to rework the gun by getting rid of the G17L slide and barrel and installing their own G34 slide and a KKM barrel installed by their gunsmith. The sight is a Leopold 3.5 MOA mounted on the rear of the slide. We are changing the slide to a G34 style because the optic mount only allows for one retaining screw due to the internal removal of material on the G17L slide. I am competing in Area 2, southern Calif. I am using a Sting Ray belt and Ghost holster
I have been using a G22 since 1997 in USPSA. This year I am practicing with a new G35. Yeah, I know. The "P" word. All stock in either Limited 10 Major or Limited Major. I have seen a few Open class GLOCKS. On occasion, the G27 comes out ot play also.
I shoot a Glock 35, .40cal in USPSA Open class. This baby has a Lone Wolf threaded barrel, with Jager Prod compensator, 2 lb. trigger, C-More STS sight, and Wolff springs. USPSA is like crack to a handgunner !!!
Love it, even my non-shooting wife gave it a "wow that's nice"
Yeah, looks good!
How do you guys like the slide mount optics? Im gonna build an open gun just havent decided on frame mounted C-more or slide mount optic.
Does the slide motion, cause any issues to the optic and muzzle rise?
I went with the slide mount in order to get the line of sight as close to the bore line as possible which makes sight acquisition easier. I have fired atleast 2,000 rounds through this one in the past 8 months with no issues whatsoever. And with the Jager compensator muzzle rise is almost non existent. C-more has a new slide mount with round optic lens now also.
frame mounted optics
I have a Glockworxs G17 with a slide mounted Leopold Delta optics. What I like about it is it is close to the barrel, there is no re-sighting issues when you have to clean the gun and it will not come loose like a C-more.
I shoot uspsa with a barebone stock (except trigger connector) G17.
Im not competitive with most of the shooters, most everyone is in open but damn!!!!! It is like crack!
I cant decide between IDPA or USPSA. they are back to back on the first two saturdays of the month. There are times when I shoot USPSA then the next weekend I do IDPA talk about different!!
The first few COF's I'm running and gunning forgetting cover, slicing the pie, sequence and priority!! I put two in each and keep on running lol!!! Then the RO Looks at me and says ... IDPA this weekend dummy
Have you posted a pic of this yet? I saw a Glockworxs in a magazine, and wouldn't mind seeing what they can do for an individual!
When shooting a C-more, remember they are mounted above the barrel. The bracket can become loose during course of fire. When the battery dies, you must remove the C-more to replace the battery and again, you have to re-sight in your sights. With the Glockworxs design frame mounted optics, the slide is cur for your sight and two Allen screws are then mounted to keep the sight in place. The slight won't move at all. When the battery needs to be replace, I take the sight off the frame, insert new battery and re-install sight with no new sight alignment needs.
I don't have any pictures to post yet because Glockworx is doing some modifying of the gun for me. I originally bought a G17L gun but that did not work out for the sight, so Ray Wong (manager of Glockworx) is putting on one of their new G34 slides with top and side cuts on the slide. I am having a KKM barrel with a hybrid design top holes put into the barrel. The gun will be the same as the Firefly design advertised in magazines except no compensator. I shoot both steel and USPSA, so leaving the comp off and installing the port holes on top of the barrel is a half way design to help the gun in both styles of shooting. I will try to get pictures done once the gun is ready in about one more month and after I learn how to post pictures on this site.
I would like to say the guys at Glockworx's really go out of their way to help the customer. I have been to their shop four times, I meet Ray and other employee's at various shoots. What impresses me about Glockworx, is they back up their product and they are out their at matches shooting their products which allows them to do a continuous R&D of their guns against the competition.
Wayne I hate to rain on your parade, but the C-more sight DOES NOT need to be removed to change the battery. The STS has a slide out tray on the right side and the battery can be changed in 10 seconds. The Cmore slide ride also allows the battery to be changed from the top.
The sight that has to be removed to change the battery is the Burris Fast Fire. I don't know where you got your info from but it was wrong. I own
and shoot the STS sight so I know what I'm talking about. Please don't post things like this without checking your sources first.
I think hes talking about the big C-more slide rider, not the STS or RTS
I have three guys who shoot with me every month, and all of them have slide ride Cmores, and all of them change batteries from the top. They have a battery compartment with 2 screws right on top. I don't know what Cmore sight he is talking about, because everyone I have seen changes batteries without removing the sight.
