    You might have a problem with the armscor barrel if you decide to drill ports on top of it. Hindi ko lang alam kung gano tatagal yung barrel in that setup.

    I've been thinking about this and I'm sure it could work. The downside is how much recoil flip reduction you can achieve versus the schuemann hybrid barrel since the barrel wall is relatively thinner. Although for about 6K bukos, you can have your barrel sleeved with a hump (like a schuemann) by Balolong. ;)

    Drilling the barrel properly is also a big factor unless you're willing to shoot FMJ/TMJ exclusively. Improperly drilled and you'll end up with lead or copper jacket scrapings when the bullet passes by the holes. Bad for accuracy, even worse for your optic lense.

    Another thing is with the slide. Without the slide-velocity-reduction of a comp, I'm not sure how it will handle major modified loads, strength-wise.

    Lastly, the overall setup of the gun itself. There's just too many mods na 'di na kaya ng file ko to make the gun fit the box.;f And besides, I don't have the funds yet for a full-blown smithing service.

    But, hey, don't let me discourage you. It's always nice to tread the un-paved path because you'll learn a lot from it. And I could be wrong in all of the things I've thought about above. The same way I've proven people they were wrong about the armscor slide not holding up if you drill holes on the side. ;)

    The modified idea I've shelved for a moment. Yung ganito ang iniisip ko'ng buo-in with an armscor 9mm platform. Mas madali kasi. Watch for it soon.:)

    Teehee, bulm5, it'll only be the basic shape, cuts and (probably) size. But nowhere near as pretty as that mongoose. :)

    Actually, it's Cy's gun (chp5 in BE's forums) posted in the classifieds. You guys are really lucky to have these sort of blasters available there.

    correct. I shoot a factory SV second hand gun. I bought it pretty reasonable from a friend who had to quit shooting (came with six mags). I took twelve overall ( out of 60) in limited ( standard) in last weeks Kentucky State match ( Could easily have been 8th overall but on one stage for some reason my loads were light and would not function the gun). Got to meet Dan Bedell of Bedell's custom. Trying to save up for a bedell or Brazos limited gun. I will post some videos if I can get a hold of the tape.

    yung isang team mate namin, armscor frame and barrel ang gamit niya for his modified pistol. si Bert sa Corazbal gumawa ng sleeve nang barrel. it has 5 ports. he changed to a caspian slide, though. slapped a slab side to the frame, now its a long dust cover. he uses a cmore so the barrel is a bit short, but capacity is still 17+1

    yung isa naman namin ka team, he uses a jpoint sight on his para p16-40. long dust cover din. the smaller optic gives a longer barrel (6ports) and max mag capacity of 18+1. flatter shooting than the short barrel.

    I'm actually trying to figure out how SPS managed to put a 2-chamber port and still be box legal?

    opinion ko lang ito, pero i think that it's easier to make a modified pistol than an open gun. mas madali mag-tune ng pistol and loads. Yung Armscor gamit ni Alan and Myk okay naman performance
