    Vector Grease Gun Lowers

    I noticed Vector finally started selling their own Grease Gun lowers in both FA and SA. Has anyone tried these out yet? How do these stack up against the Chris Humphreys lowers?
    If you're going to knock a man down...do it so he can't get up.

    They were there, but they were taken down only about a week after I posted this. I have no idea why (any info Peabody?).

    I believe if you call, they may still be able to hook you up, but since I haven't been ready to get one yet, I haven't called them myself.

    Thanks for the info guys. I'll call Michelle tomorrow.

    I sure like this Uzi forum - bets the heck out of "wondering around in the wilderness".

    I don't have Chris's version, but I do have a Vector GG lower and I had to do a considerable amount of dremel work to get it to fit. I plan to take it to the range this weekend.

    Ugh,

    sorry to hear that. Maybe that's why they took it down, not ready for prime time?

    Thumbs up GG lower - called Michelle at Vector

    GG lower - called Michelle at Vector this a.m. and they have plenty of GG lowers at $275.

    She said they are having "issues" with the web site, so as some else recommended, call them if you do not see something.

    Also, Michelle said they plan to have more .45 cal conversion kits by mid-March, built by Vector. Forgot to ask about price and mags.

    I am considering the 10mm conversion from BarrelXchange.

    If I win the lottery my SA Vector will be getting a .45 lower and barrel- for ammo compatibility with the 1911 when the zombies come, ya know?

    I know a guy who fired one of Troy's 10mm conversion and he said there was no other way to describe a 10mm round out of a 16" barrel other than "scorchingly fast." IIRC he said the rounds were chronographing at 2000 fps or thereabouts.

    Man!! that's fast, it's Winchester 3030 ballistics.

    I know my 40S&W 180gr Hp's crony at 1200 fps from a 10" barrel, never tested them in a 16".

    Was that a hand load or factory?

    I *think* it was REALLY HOT handloads, but I may be wrong and I may have the fps a bit high (or it could have been exaggerated). I'll see if I can find out more info for you.

    I take it you have never chronographed 10mm out of a 16" barrel? I imagine if factory loads would leave a glowing trail behind them.

    Question 10mm conversions and the Vector Uzi backplate problems

    I have been considering the 10mm conversion, but have you guys seen the thread about Vector Uzi backplate problems - welds breaking. Anyone else concerned ?
