CZ P10C

naloxone ·
I was pretty impressed with this gun, so I figured I would share some thoughts and pics. It was marketed as the next Glock 19 killer. Did it succeed? Scroll down to find out! This is what comes in the box. Pretty routine kit. It comes with the small backstrap installed. In this picture, you are looking at the medium backstrap. I paid about $400 out the door for it, which I feel is more than reasonable for what I got. You can find the 1st gen models for even less now that an update is hitting...

Glock factory zero and sight picture

Thanatos ·
Hey guys, I have 2 gnat's-ass questions about pistol sight pictures and factory zero distance. 1. At what range are factory Glock sights zeroed (assuming here that most/all standard-height aftermarket sights would follow suit if properly installed). 2. Within the sight picture at the zeroed distance, does the bullethole in the target bisect the top edge of the front sight post, or sit behind the post centered in the white dot? If the latter, at what range should I set the target for a...

Looking to build a rifle and have most of it planned out. Need help finding the perfect optic. Looking for ideas. I have and used Mark 4, US Optic TPAL, NF, and Trijicon. Trying to find out what people prefer and why for my next purchase. Any help would be appreciated.

EMDOM Ammo S.A.C

tugboat12 ·
Eventually one of two things happen... Your range bag and/or back of your vehicle get destroyed by metal ammo cans. Or, your plastic bag/cardboard box carrying your ammo self destructs into a big mess. EMDOM, with Military Morons, made a great solution. The Ammo S.A.C. (Soft Ammo Can) does a amazing job of keeping all your ammo in one place, making it easy to access and easy to identify. The small version holds about 750 rounds of 5.56mm, while the large one holds about 1000 rounds of...

Re: Glock factory zero and sight picture

-25 yards is a good distance to have your sights zero’d. 15 yards would also suffice if that’s the farthest your range went. -Different ammo may have different zero. For example, out of a Gen4 Glock 17, 115 grain ammo may print a different POI than 147 grain ammo -Some guns print high/low out of the box, regardless of ammo. Your front sight height would be the easiest change to dictate elevation. You may need to change your front sight height to get your desired POA/POI relationship. (Sight...

IIRC Glock does not give an accuracy guarantee. However, if you send one in for work, it has to shoot (5rds?) inside a 2" circle at 15m before it leaves their hands. This came from the armorer's course/ instructor workshop I attended about two years ago.

My understanding is that you could adjust the lasers on the SIRT pistol. I will check the owners manual when I get home. Did you get any of the manuals with the device?

Re: Glock factory zero and sight picture

Thanatos ·
@darbywpd It did come with manuals, and you are correct re: laser adjustment. I was just trying to figure out which rdistance to a zero at. However, on further testing, the laser point of impact relative to the sight picture is jumping around wildly between shots, and there’s something rattling inside the gun. Also, the laser adjustment set screws are very loose. I’m returning it. I heard the SIRTs had some questionable QC when they first came out. I’m wondering if I got a first-run lemon. I...

Vortex Razor Gen II! Produced in either 3-18, or 4.5-27 magnification, tough, durable, repeatable, high-quality glass, optical clarity, range of magnification, number of serious competition shooters use it. It also has an unconditional lifetime warranty. Feel free to take it out of the box, throw it down the highway, drive over it 20 times, send it in, and enjoy the awesome CS given by the guys at Vortex when they either repair, or replace your optic. Ive used 2 of them now on a few hard use...

Test driving glass for your rifle is not something that can be done over the internet. Kinda like you cannot test drive a car over the internet. You can narrow the choices based on info and opinions, but at some point you will have to go hands on and make a decision based on what you actually see balanced out by the research you have done. Try to locate someone who has a rifle set up similar to what you are trying setup and see if you can get hands on. Just understand that it is not uncommon...

Ok I have a donor rifle of a Rem 700 SPS Varmint. Looking to put a KRG Whiskey 3 chassis on it with a Timney Calvin Elite trigger. The use of the rifle will be shooting long distance and fun most of the time but also used for hunting. I know you can't just buy a scope without placing hands on it. I wanted to narrow it down to what I want to look at and possibly ones that I haven't heard or thought of before. Love my NF they are great scopes but out of the ones I own I like USO best. I...

For a rifle to be carried around all day, the weight of the Vortex Razor HD II is, IMO, a negative. Their Razor AMG would be one to consider, it's significantly lighter.

Price point hasn’t been listed but going off the general price of the other optics you listed I’m assuming $1500-1800 range. I personally like the Bushnell tactical stuff. I have both Bushnell and vortex offerings and I prefer the locking turrets and reticle of the Bushnell. I tend to hold vs dial most of the time And I don’t understand why more companies who do Christmas tree type reticle don’t have locking turrets. That said the glass is better in the razor line of vortex if that matters...

The Vortex Razor Gen II has locking turrets, and their reticle is great for both holding and/or dialing. It is a pig when it comes to weight, but that's what the gym is for right? I also have a Bushnell Tactical optic and it is great also, though for precision specifically, i do prefer the Razor. I think primary purpose is what will drive a lot of this purchase. If it is a hunting rifle, and nothing more, with most of your shots being taken inside of 300 yards, then you may not benefit from...

OR, they use Schott glass and are mega solid. Another way to go cheaper is to go fixed power. Or at least less magnification and objective diameter, and skip illuminated recticles.

Nice write up on the CZ. I'm still a Glock man, but that $350 price tag is pretty tempting just to give it a shot. How are the accessories? Are there many after-market parts? Like an improved slide release? Well done though. Thanks for posting it up. RTX

NALOXONE , I have some questions about the mag release. My info is 2 years old. I finger fucked one at the local gun store and I was very unimpressed with the mag release. It was hard to depress and if the mag was under any tension/jammed it was nearly impossible to push the mag release. In just a few reps I was missing the mag release a few times and hand to "hunt around" with my thumb to get it to engage. Like it had a specific travel path and if you didn't align with this completely it...

Most of the usual parts you'd like to tinker with are available from Cajun Gun Works. For the time being, I am content with the factory trigger, so I have no immediate plans to try anything else out. I know CZ Custom has an extended slide release. I may try that at some point, but it's pretty pricey at $90.00. For better or worse, the fully ambidextrous design requires more work than the old stamped metal Glock release. As for the magazine release, I did notice the tough release in an early...

I got my P10C straight from CGW with a little bit of their magic sprinkled in. I am a huge fan of how the gun shoots, carries, and feels, for a compact gun in my mongo hands. HOWEVER: I am hugely disappointed in the magazine release on mine. I bought it about two weeks before the Gen 2 was announced, and although I like the gun, I don't shoot it near as much as my other pistols because of that little hiccup. I wish I could say that it is something that would break in over time, but...

A member here wrote a really good review of his Bushmaster ACR a few years ago. He’s a lefty and he brought a unique perspective to the review because of the ambidextrous controls claims from Magpul after the original Masada was released. I was able to convince him to polish it up a bit and add a few photos before he sold it as an article to SWAT Magazine. You’d have to drop “cunt hair” and make a few edits, but this could be turned into an article in short order and sold with little effort...

Good writeup, thanks for sharing your thoughts. I‘be been thinking about buying a P-10 C for a year or so, but it keeps dropping down the priority list behind a Gen 5 G19, G19X, G45, G43X, etc... I’ll probably buy one if/when CZ offers it with a green frame. I’ve watched a lot of YT videos to feed my curiosity, and while they’re not the most polished, I think this guy has a lot of good insight into the updates that CZ has made to the pistol, some modifications and aftermarket parts, and how...

I have two large versions and fell in love. I plan on getting a handful more in various size. My ammo cans will now be limited to basement storage and the SAC's will be used for travel. Very well made. My only suggestion would be to put loop velcro on them so one can use velcro caliber patches. I may just sew on my own.

Inexpensive, but not cheap alternative is a scuba weight bag. Blue Reef makes one that will cost you about $15, and holds at least 45# (that's as much as I've put in it). http://www.leisurepro.com/p-bl...ultra-pro-weight-bag

I have a couple of the small SACs. I like them. I use a Vertx A-Range bag these days, which has a pair of built-in ammo caddies, but the SACs would be my go-to ammo carriage method if I was using some other range bag. Why yes, it does. They don't have loop fields, but I find the vinyl windowed pockets to be even more useful, as you don't special caliber patches—just fold a 3x5" card in half, write the caliber (and quantity, if desired), and slip it in the ID pocket.
