I have the sps 9mm mags but my rock is in .40. The 9mm seats nice in the .40 and drops free. Hope that helps. Also the mag coach window was a little small for my 9mm and had to open up the window to get it to fit I’m my sti
I did just about all of it with a 220 grit and then just smoothed it up once it would slide almost all the way on with a 600 and 800. On the area where the recoil spring sets I cut a small sliver of sand paper and faced the grit to the stone. This gave a smooth surface against the side so it didn't get scratched up. Did I explain that in a way that made sense?

Accurately measure your crimp, 3. Do the plunk test and 4. chrono your loads. And this assumes you are already working off published data.
ckaplan88 replied to ckaplan88's topic in GlockSniper Boy, wow thanks for the input! Luckily I have another G19 that has stock slide/frame but using a 5 lb striker spring and OEM striker.. I was thinking of doing exactly what you said with the DK trigger setup and IDP lightweight striker that it comes with in the ZEV19 to see if it works. To be honest, I am fairly certain I've shot the same Hot Shot ammo with it, but I couldn't be 100% certain, this gun is mainly used for SSP IDPA matches and rarely hits the indoor range. Seems as I have some testing to do.. my biggest fear is that the aftermarket ZEV slide has too tight of a tolerance and is causing a binding ever so slightly in the firing pin liner like you said, even ZEV tech support said their tolerances are super tight, so if that's the case and this ZEV slide fails with the DK kit, a stock OEM striker w/ 5 lb spring and/or a ZEV striker w/ a 4.5 lb spring then I suppose I need to send it back to ZEV.
I have 2- 33 rd with TF 41 extensions that run flawlessly. I also have a 33 rd with the MBX mega that runs flawlessly I can even reload to it with 56 rds. I just ordered 2- MBX mini's hope they will be ok.
DKorn replied to EngineerEli's topic in "Other" & Pistol ComparisonsHas everyone come to the conclusion that the best 140 mm base pads for the Q5 are the a Taran Tactical ones, possibly with the addition of the Grams P320 follower (if you’re ok with them not locking back)? I’m getting ready to order a set and want to make sure I get the best ones.
Nathanb replied to teejay's topic in Pistol Caliber Carbine - TechnicalAs said pull the barrel. If the barrel is super dirty you may want to look at cleaning the piston and tappet assembly too.
Bummy425 replied to vnboileau's topic in 9mm/38 CaliberListen to Sarge Jack and Memphis. I especially agree with Sarge on the recoil spring. When using low power reloads you have to tune those. I use a 9# spring on my Shadow 2 and my Beretta 92's to get consistent extraction. Sent from my Moto G (5) Plus using Tapatalk
Granted this was on a friend of mines revolver and I personally never used it only played with it. Compared to the stock release it did feel faster and for weak hand reloads it was definitely an advantage. It could be made different lengths to suit each ones need.

Hi-Power Jack replied to matteekay's topic in Dillon Precision Reloading EquipmentI'd start by tightening the shell plate ...
stick replied to matteekay's topic in Dillon Precision Reloading EquipmentCall Dillon. I don't have a Square Deal. I know that on my Dillon XL650, When I had the case crush issue, My shell plate was out of alignment. You're saying it's only happening every now and then right? Are you sure you are hitting your stops with the handle?
MikieM replied to Franchomr's topic in Pistol Caliber Carbine - TechnicalNo, I shot myself. Get it? I seated the bullet in the wrong direction, and shot myself. Man! Tough crowd.
