Why would a Glock not cycle 147gr rds with a suppressor?

    Either the OKCGC timers are not adequate or the sensitivity is set too high on them. Several times when shooting steel challenge we have had issues with .22 rifles. At the last match we ended up using my timer after the first stage. On the first stage we had problems with 3 guns. After that we did not have an issue on any guns. I even ran my PCC suppressed on the subsequent stages.Now that I think about it, you may have even been on our squad.

    It helps to have RO's who know how to adjust timer sensitivity. I've run practical matches with a suppressed .22LR and all I did was hand my timer to the RO's, which was set to max sensitivity, with instructions to hold it to the side of the gun at the last target array as opposed to directly behind me. Works like a charm!

    Lol, I see it all the time.
    Go to any USPSA, steel challenge, or 3 gun match where competitors are known to use aftermarket products. 90% of all failures at the matches are from Glocks that have been messed with.

    Maybe you should actually pay attention when you're at the range.

    LOL, when they're not 1911 shooters who can't disengage a thumb safety or activate a grip safety?

    Your numbers are WAY off. LOL

    90% being Glocks is pretty accurate. 1911's are 2nd place for jams. I don't count not disengaging safeties because that's an error of the user, not the gun.
    The only gun I've seen jam and double feed more than a glock is the FNX 45, but those aren't that prevalent.

    When you have a firm grip and wrist lock that's like putting the pistol in a rest, a semi auto runs much better on light ammo. I don't use a suppressor, but some who try my range loads in a stock M&P get feeding problems from letting the gun flip up. I've noted some of you who look like you're "locking" on the gun until the bullets fly out with little gun motion. Good technique!

    That has been my experience too. I've had better service, pricing and performance from LAX Ammo.
