Here’s a deep dive / review / look into the USPSA Open Division race gun that I’ve been shooting for a year now. It’s built a decade ago by a local GM. I bought it used from a fellow shooter here in the PNW. Here’s the breakdown :
DAA Foldable Jet Wings
KIDD Blast Shield
38 Super Comp Ultimatch bull barrel
SV (Old STyle) Compensator
EGW Extractor, ejector & lockwork
SV Frame with stippled polymer grip
Infinity TriGlide widebody trigger bow
Infinity long flat trigger insert
Infinity round commander hammer
SPS magazine 170mm (w Grams guts & 4mm bolens) 29rnds
SV Magazine 170mm (w Grams guts & 3mm bolens) 29rnds
STI 140mm (w Grams guts & 7mm bolens) 22rnds
So the thumb rest didn’t really work for me and didn’t help with the on-table start scenarios and it so happens, on the same day, I found someone on BENOS forums that is selling a used Double Alpha Academy Foldable Jet Wings for a decent price and I snapped it up.
It came today and I started installing it.
Installation is simple, just remove the battery cover on the C-More sight, and screw the jet wings down. It is in a way a better alternative to the existing Serendipity C-more battery cover as the Jet Wings are made of aluminum and the c-more battery cover is plastic.
here’s how it looks like installed :
and folded on one side.
The Wings are held up by a magnet and it’s pretty sturdy when it’s held up like the picture above. The only gripe I have, is that when the wings are folded, it doesn’t really stay down. A slight jolt and the wings will “unfurl”. It’s not much of a problem, but it’s a little irritating to deal with, so I used some simple white tack to keep the wings securely folded.
Not a very aesthetic way of fixing the problem, but it works
