    Is it just me or is Lee underappreciated?

    I've been reloading for twenty years and I always ignored Lee stuff as "cheap" or lesser quality than other companies like RCBS, Lyman and Dillon.

    I've recently started using Lee products and I'm...

    I don't see a bifurcation.

    Look at Wilson's and Ed Browns. This time last year there was a glut of $1700 or so factory custom 1911's sitting on the used market. This year they don't exist.

    What is the height of the rear of a DPP?

    Can someone please bust out a set of calipers and measure the height of the rear of a DPP?

  7. Am I the only guy that doesn't like the Gen5 trigger?

    I've owned two Gen5's...one of the first G19's and a recent G17 MOS (both since traded away).

    I've also owned Gen4 guns (also long gone) and always find myself coming back to the Gen3 or Gen2's....

    This is an early 2000's non-proofed P220 I foolishly traded away (like all the other P220's I've owned).

    Kinda what I figured and I agree. If it's G21 size no thanks.

    I have more 40 S&W ammo than I care to admit and the only 40 S&W gun I still own is a G22 Gen3 that I keep for sentimental reasons.

    MSparks909

    Is the slide the size of a Glock 21 or somewhere between a 17 and 21?

    I have no clue why I want one of these since I swore off 40 S&W a long time ago, but I find myself drawn to it.

    It never hurts to asked. I've learned a lot from local reps and instructors in those classes, including things that the company probably would not have wanted passed along.
