dnugget,
NICE GUNZ!!!

question on your Chip McCormick Power Mags. are you using the traditional Power Mags or the Power Mags Plus?

The reason I ask, I have a high use Springer MC Operator where I used exclusively traditional Power Mags. Approximately 15K through the tube and likely double dry fire with a lot of mag insertions. Unbeknownst to me, the pointed tip follower dinged up my frame just below the feed ramp. I don't believe it was worn mag feed lips, but just the inherent way those followers act when empty (meaning they move fwd and the pointed follower contacts the frame).

I don't ever recall this causing any issues, and most recently I felt that area raised, and I dressed it flat.

I also bought some Power Mag Plus mags that have a rounded follower.

While I am not worried about my MCOP frame as this piece has been driven hard, however just providing a heads up on your ACWs if you plan to use them hard.


Huge thanks for the heads up. (y) (y) (y) (y)




Arrived at the LGS today. These one makes #3 for my little Alchemy family. View attachment 971771

Sexy beast !!!!

I believe that's the first chrome Quantico Doublestack that I've seen. Mighty sharp.


Ordered my HC Prime Elite on 6/21 and picked it up today. Exactly 10 months. The hard chrome is gorgeous. Pics don’t do it justice. So glad I went that route with it. View attachment 977304

Sweet pair.

I couldn't decide on hard chrome or blue on my first ACW......so I'm doing a mixta. Boff' in one. :giggle:

Picked up my Prodigy this evening. I need to change out the ACW standard shoes. I can't wait to get to the range with this one but I am a little apprehensive after seeing the test target. Don't think I can do that on my best day. View attachment 982229 View attachment 982230
Amazing! And the little note at the bottom is a neat touch! Enjoy it!

Nothing specific on the way it was fit, I just got the better than 1" option since it was available at that time.

So, you purchased the hard fit option, but it's the "least hard fit." I guess it's easy to rack, maybe? Looks like you hit the Alchemy lottery with that one, and I bet it would be easy to sell with the commentary on the target. .

Finally got around to taking pictures of my Prodigy. Picked it up in Vegas last year, and it’s probably my favorite looking ACW. I carry the Quantico Hi-Cap and tbf prefer it to my NHC.
