    My new pistol for open division. Just finishing up the build tonight. Off to the range for some trigger time and tuning. Not sure how competitive it will be against the BIG dollar guns but we will see.

    Ok, I'm new to this, sort of. How do you proof the gun for 9 major? Don't plan to do it but would like to know. Thanks in advance.

    It's proofed from the factory.
    9 major is around 49k psi I think.

    Uh... as far as i know NOBODY is claiming 49kpsi is ok in 9mm.

    There are powers like AA7 that run major and stay at sane pressures. (According to my open 9major friends)

    I DO NOT shoot open major 9mm, so feel free to correct me! It's how i learn.

    My 9mm open pistol documentation says it's proofed to 49k psi. Of course no one wants to test that!

    You may want to better understand the difference between operational pressure and proof pressure. I would hate to learn of an injury caused by over pressure rounds at proof being used. They only run 2 as the damage is cumulative. Think bending a paperclip...

    I understand the difference. It's purely academic to most everyone except the few who can measure such things. Typically a manufacturer.
    Assuming North America. My open gun is made in Czechoslovakia.
