Just wondering before going sbr and I get too carried away with buying various stock options. Thanks.


It touches ever so slightly on the left side near the cross. I think thats more to do with holding it in the right hand while extending putting some side pressure on it. It doesn't seem to touch anywhere else. I've extended it more than a couple hundred times at this point either shooting or just messing around. I'll try and get a photo soon, really only visible in direct light. The stock is too cool for it to bug me Wink




When in doubt, pinky out.

Thanks. I figured you'd have the answer.

Andyb, on your Zenith Z5P, what all was required to sbr? Looking on one of the vendor sites it mentions they have all the parts to make it 922 compliant. Many parts to replace or just add a stock once the stamp comes back?

There are a few to replace, I don't remember the number though. I would run a search on the HKPro forum.

Question for you B&T owners. Why choose the APC9 over the KH9? Also, how does the .45 ACP compare to the 9mm in these B&T's?

The KH9 was intended as a "hobby" gun by a gentleman at B&T (Karl's Hobby 9) whereas the APC9 was intended for more serious use. The KH9 also does not have a safety only a decocker. I don't own a KH9, but may someday. I would go APC9 unless the Spectre-esque KH is too much of a draw Wink

The KH is also a little more expensive but you get two magwell parts to change between Spectre mags and B&T mags. If you have any of those 50 rd mags from the Spectre then you'll have a nice piece to use with those mags. I really would like one of those GHM9 models in addition to my APC. Saw one of those KHM9's when I bought mine.

Kimber: I like. Just needs an SD suppressor. You just thought you were done stamp collecting Wink

With the registered sear I don't have to SBR this one and because the only time I'm going to shoot it is for f/a fun, I'm not going to bother SBR-ing this one ... That's one stamp I don't have to get ... Besides, all the other hosts are already SBR'd so if I do want to switch hosts it's easy-peazy

For part II, I've Actually come up with a "work around" for the suppressor that works pretty well ...
I removed the shoulder stop on the Silencerco 18x1 direct thread adapter for my Octane 45 that I'd bought for the Skorpion EVO; then I made a barrel support that sits on the front of the barrel against the barrel shoulder and ported it to allow gas to bleed through to the baffles, took out 1/2 the baffles and bought a spring to put between the barrel support and baffles to keep the baffles forward in the tube.



I took it out and shot a couple mags on my lunch hour earlier this week (which actually turned into 2 hours) It works pretty well, I get 120-140 db with my meter, even in F/A ... and it will break down to fit in my lap-top bag Wink



Right now, the SD, shooting full power 124 grain Fiocchi with the above pictured modification, the sound level is about the same as my MP5 shooting subsonic with all the baffles in the same Octane 45. I wish I knew someone arount here that had as SD to compare to, because I just dont trust the Hollywood sound effect guys idea of what ant suppressed weapon sounds like!

A friend that has a machine shop is taking my idea and making an SD adapter for my Octane so I can use all the baffles ... I know it won't be twice as quiet but I'm very excited to see what it does for suppression.

If the HPA passes I'll probably get an SD suppressor, but if it doesn't ... I still might, but it's nice having options


If you really want something you'll find a way ...
... if you don't you'll find an excuse.

I'm really not a "kid" anymore ... but I haven't grown up yet either Wink

Has anyone tried the proprietary B&T can on a TP9? I love the look of that whole package but cant seem to find any feedback on how it performs.

Does it only fit the TP9 or will it also fit the SPP?

As far as I know only the TP9, since the SPP/TMP didn't use the odd oversized 3-lug system.

Thanks, I haven't seen one and didn't know it was a 3-lug attachment ... but I have a SPP, so if the HPA passes I'd be interested.

On another note, I shot a friends MPX yesterday ... He had replaced the trigger with a CMMG? 3.5 flat bow trigger, while the trigger was nice, overall I wasn't too impressed, it was just OK ... I wish I knew someone with a BT APC9; while I don't find it a particularly attractive weapon, it does seems to have favorable reviews from people here I respect.

If you're ever in The area of Knoxville, Chattanooga, or in between give me a shout and you can run mine. Had a SPP in the early to mid 90's. Ridiculously accurate.
