  1. I got a kick out of this thread. Back in the day the first thing Glock owners did was buy finger groove grip wraps for their Gen 2 Glocks. Now it is en vogue to dremel off Gen 3 finger grooves. Then, people felt the need to replace cheap plastic parts with steel parts just cause... How to lighten a Tanflango to make weight... use plastic guide rod. Brilliant yet so easily overlooked when you're caught up in a fad : )
  2. Thanks John. Looking forward to the video MM as usual.
  3. Just to be sure, is this the "Canik pin" everyone is talking about to replace the trigger pin for the Stock 2? Thanks for your patience : )
  4. Just purchased a set of the THIN aluminum (with grip tape) grips and I like em... however I think that I would like the thick grips even more if I did the math right on the overall thickness. I will likely purchase them to try at a later date So question, I see that black exists.. but... did CZC ever make the THICK aluminum grips in GOLD? : )
  5. That seems right. Just changing to a 1 piece sear 'should' not necessitate changing the FPB.
  6. Pull back the hammer to single action then without depressing the trigger try to push the back of the firing pin with a punch. You should not be able to push it in. Then with your thumb on the hammer pull the trigger slowly and try to push the pin down concurrently through its travel, holding the hammer back. It should only release when the trigger is pulled a certain distance.. at least this is how I checked it. If you are bored, prove to yourself that everything is in order by putting all your stock parts back and repeat and compare the results of your exercise.
  7. Gosh darn it.. kind of surprising considering the CZ's popularity. Thanks for the reply all the same : )
  8. Thanks for the recommendations : )
  9. Did Dawson ever have adjustable rear sights for the CZ SP-01? Just got an SP-01 and sad that DP does not make an Adj. rear for it, since the Adj. rears are standard equipment for me - yep even on a Glock 26 that is pretty ludicrous and a great icebreaker at ranges. Did this beast once roam the Earth and get discontinued or did it never exist?
  10. I would add that for my instance I did not need an extended firing pin block (FPB) when I had the 1-pc sear, stock hammer and stock firing pin in the pistol. When I installed my PDO firing pin, my FPB no longer worked and I now need an extended one.
  11. Only speaking from my experience... you can install the 1-pc sear now without needing to fit the safety. Once you drop in the Titan you will need to fit your safety. I would install the Bolo concurrent with the Titan.
  12. My condolences. If I were in your shoes I would be in a corner crying by now. ..after I threw the pistol (unloaded) against the wall. Admittedly I have wanted to do that on more than one occasion. Have you considered drilling a new hole/divot? At least for the new set screw to lock into. Might salvage what last bit of dignity you have after all the pain and effort you went through. : O
  13. Been there. Use a butane torch and directly heat the set screw. Don't force anything because once you strip the screw head then you will have no choice but to take a drill to hog it out carefully.
  14. Not sure if you are in the USA or not (since you mention IPSC) but you may want to call Henning. I have emailed them many times but have never got a response, however, they are always very nice on the phone and return calls. Don't want that frustration to stew in your mind any more than it needs to : )
  15. Any sight will work to be honest. Its like asking what shoes do I need to win a ball game I compete with my Glock 26 and use the Dawson adjustables plain black rear and front. It looks weird but they've performed really well. My full size Glocks use The same. The only thing I advise is that since the sight radius is shorter you may want to choose a front sight a bit thinner than what you are used to in your full size pistol.
