Troubleshooting

(Sometimes things just don’t work right)

All manufacturers design their products to operate under a wide variety of conditions. However, they cannot test every possible situation. We have complied troubleshooting information for products of various manufacturers here. These are by no means complete and we always recommend that you contact the manufacturer should you have any questions about their product. 

Information on these guides has been compiled from original manufacturer documents when at all possible which include Owners and Armorer manuals.

Shell Sorter

Shell Sorter – A faster way to sort your range brass?

 

TRB Shorts is a series that we bring you an overview of a product in under 5 minutes. In this episode, Shell Sorter – A faster way to sort your rage brass?, I walk you through the use of the Shell Sorter to sort through my range brass. 

We do a lot of shooting and need to reload to keep the slides on our guns moving and also to keep range testing moving. When we go to the range, we not only pick up our brass but also pick up whatever is laying around. If there is brass that I don’t reload for, I usually trade that for other brass that I may need. 

Watch Brass Sorter – A faster way to sort your range brass?

 

As you can see, these shell sorters are pretty easy to use. I bought my shell sorters at Brownells. However, Brownells does not carry the 380 shell plate. After some searching, I found the 380 shell plate on Amazon.

The trick to using the Shell Sorters is to put your brass in the top and work that until all that is left doesn’t pass through. After that, you work on the middle one and then finally the bottom one. To sort out the 380s from your 9mm brass, you put the 380 shell plate into the top sorter (45 and 308) and then run everything from your bottom sorter through again. The 380s will drop through leaving you with just 9mm. 

If you frequently find 380s in your 9mm pile, you will definitely want to get the 380 plate.

WILSON COMBAT WCP320 GRIP MODULE REVISIT – Is this the best P320 grip module?

 

In this video, I take the Wilson Combat WCP320 Grip Module to the range for a revisit. Previously, I put the Polymer80 PF320PTEX up against the Wilson Combat WCP320 grip module. Check that video out here. But this time, it is all Wilson Combat (Check out the PF320PTEX video here).

 

I really like the WCP320 Grip Module, but I had some concerns in the previous video. Now that I have more time dedicated to this product, let’s see this in action. 

Watch WILSON COMBAT WCP320 GRIP MODULE REVISIT – Is this the best P320 grip module?:

 

 

The WCP320 grip module does not have an aggressive grip texture as the PF320PTEX. However, it is still far better when compared to the Factory Grip Modules from Sig Sauer. The front and back strap does have an extremely aggressive texture. The sides are not as aggressive, however, I feel you get more airflow to your hand.

Polymer80 PF320PTEX Revisit

Polymer80 PF320PTEX Revisit – More of the same or better with age?

 

In this video, I do a Polymer80 PF320PTEX Revisit at the range. In the previous video, I put the Polymer80 PF320PTEX up against the Wilson Combat WCP320 grip module. Check the video out here

I wanted to give each grip module its own video so that I can show their own unique advantages and disadvantages. In this video it is time to revisit the Polymer80 PF320PTEX.

The grip module has an odd shelf where you would put your support hand thumb. I initially was worried about where my support hand thumb would go on the frame. In this video I will talk about how this is working for me. 

Watch Polymer80 PF320PTEX Revisit – More of the same or better with age?:

 

While at the range, I did get to shoot some high frame rate, slow speed, video. This footage shows how well my thumb placement worked out for me. As for the future of this grip module in my line up, time will only tell if it makes it into regular rotation or relegated to a memory.
