SFX for USPSA production Division

Post by jcbaier2001 » Sun Jun 10, 2018 7:37 pm

Hi there,

I'm using my SFX for Carry optics and I was wondering if anyone is shooting a SFX in production. If so, will the SFX work the plus 2 magazines fit in the box?

Thanks

John

Good question. I just got an SFx and haven't used it in competition yet. Hopefully someone can chime in with an answer.

The SFX will not fit in the box with the +2 basepads. Now, you will almost never see a box at a local competition. I doubt many shooters will care either when the +2 basepad adds no advantage either.

Worst case, you show up and there is a box (or the MD is familiar with Caniks), just shoot limited minor until you can get some flush fit base pads.

Do you know where I could score some base pads that would fit?

Thanks

I do not. They magazines are made by Mec-gar, so you could try contacting them. I have referred other people to them, but none have returned to say if it worked or not.

I agree with nwcityguy; at a tier 1 match, no one is going to care -until you start beating them. Even then, what difference does it make if your mag holds 30 rounds if you can only load 10? The Box really only matters for Limited at tier 2 or higher, and the rule-happy IDPA.

Unfortunately, it would be bad form for me to use the magazines if not legal for production. I'm a certified USPSA Range Master. Limited division doesn't use a box. The magazines can not be longer than 140mm. But, I'll try Mec-gar.

Thank you for the help!

Robin Taylor of Taylor Freelance was 3D printing a Producion/SSP/ESP prototype basepad last night. They will work w the stock locking plate, unlike those from Springer Precision. :)

Taylor Freelance is working on some +0 basepads to be legal for production. He has them in testing right now and should release pretty soon.

I shot Production with My DA and used the 18 rd mags for a while. I found some more 18 rd on sale @ lanbosarmory.com. When I did I found them for just under 20.00 and Purchased The +2 base plates for 10.00 as well. I knew I was going to purchase a SFX. So I would need more. Just Purchase Some 18 rd mags for around 20 And throw on your +2 base plates when you shoot CO.

Do the ones from Taylor Freelance reduce the over all height? I need to replace the +2 base pads to get in USPSA height limit.
