That's probably really good advice, but they are a little out of my price range, especially since they eliminated the Spartan. I guess I'm going Italian after all....

They really know what they are doing in Parump!

I got my 22TCM back, about a month ago, after its 5 weeks vacation out in Nevada. It had been cycling only extra long 9mm reloads reliably. Anything else had random nosedives every 20-50 rounds. ...

Match Elite

I'm sort of in the market for an upgraded 1911 style pistol for IDPA ESP. The match elite 9mm is on my short list. I haven't been able to find out much about it, particularly if it's easy to...

What happened to the PARA designs

I am looking at the possibility of a new 1911 style gun for IDPA and other gun games. I didn't see anything on the Remington's website with the characteristics I was looking for (9mm or 40SW, target...

The failure to lock the slide back will also happen when your magazine springs get a little weak (assuming it was locking back before). I stretch mine out a bit when I'm cleaning the magazine. That...

What's happening

I happened upon the PARA web sight and low and behold, I noticed that someone had changed the address. You would have thought they would have done more than that by now. No other mention that they...

I would really like a little more weight up front to dampen movement during the end of transitions. That's really what I want the extra weight of the guide rod for.

My RIA needs to go on a diet

I haven't been competing with my 22TCM for several months. I made a foray back into SSP and I'm ready to move back to ESP again. Anyway, I would like to install my full length guide rod and my VZ...

Mine are the lower cut ones too. I wanted to switch to the top ones. I haven't seen anything like that on the RIA parts sight and as far as I can tell, Dawson only offers fixed sights for these.

22 TCM rear sight

I have the 22 TCM with the regular low profile white dot rear sight.
Does anyone know who to buy the target version of the sight from (that the 22TCM Target version comes with)?

thanks

Problem or not?

I've been using the 9mm barrel in a TCM as a cheap man's 2011. It's been working pretty good.

I shot my first really dark match yesterday. I noticed pronounced powder sparks out of the rear of...

Why does Taurus have a bad reputation

I'll be honest, right off, I don't have a Taurus 1911. I have looked at them a gun shows and haven't found any problems with them. I already have a 1911, so I haven't bought one. They seem tight...

I bought mine, just for an IDPA ESP gun, full size though. It takes a little tuning of the magazines, since the geometry of the 9mm round really doesn't fit a 1911, there is no ramp, and the barrel...

Interesting, but if it takes off, I'm assuming the regular TCM cartridge will quickly become extinct, like so many other cartridges in the past.
