  1. Has anyone tried the adjustable LPA rear sight that CGW and Fusion firearms sells?
  2. I will order a 11lb and maybe a 10lb for light steel loads. My idpa and uspsa loads are generally around a 127 pf but never above 130 pf. What can I say I love my powder puff loads for 9mm Does anyone make a reduced power mag release spring? I got too use to the #3 in my 1911 with extended mag release
  3. Thanks rowdyb! Any recommendations on sights? CZC/CGW/Dawson I would like my point of impact just above my front sight. I also dont like alot of daylight on the sides of the front sight.
  4. I just got my CZ sp01 What is the best pound spring for 147gr at 126 pf
  5. I run a 10 lb spring for my 126 pf loads. The 10 lb also will cycle with 110 pf loads for steel. I have had problems with an 8 lb not returning the slide all the way. Mine is the all stainless version.
  6. I'll take a look at the ed brown again. Thanks!
  7. Does any body know if a Tactical sport 40 s&w slide work on the new Shadow 2?
  8. Does any of you have any sources for the act mags? gregcote is still out of stock
  9. Any idea when the new stock 1 will hit the us?
  10. I know I need a 9mm slide stop. I guess what I'm looking for is one that has the most meat on the bottom and side were it engages the follower. This way I can file and fit it.
  11. I only have one mag that will lock back the slide 95% of the time and that one has at least 6k through it. The other mags are 1-2k and some are under 500. Its not the springs. I also tried swapping springs and followers but same issues. I know the slide lock was not 100% reliable even when new. The mag release has under 10k on it and is a dawson extended. The mag release spring has been replaced also. I have also noticed in the right conditions the follower will miss the stop and hold the mag in. This happened too many times at Indoor Nationals. I know the parts on these Springfields are not high Quality but I bought it because of the Forged frame and slide.
  12. I'm starting to have problems with my slide stop. It wont lock back the slide all the time. Its a Springfield Range Officer 9mm stainless. I have been trying different Mags but came to the conclusion that the slide stop must be worn out. I do have over 12k rounds through the gun. What is the best slide stops that you guys recommend? Do some brands have more of a lip to catch the mag follower? I need 100% lock back reliability because it is my main IDPA gun and we all know the dreaded rules they have. Thanks
  13. Run your finger nail or a knife across the bottom of your feed lips to feel for burrs or roughness. All my mags had at least a burr or was rough so much so that they would scratch the brass. I guess if your concerned about polishing just use a stone or 200-300 grit sandpaper. Some 1200 grit sandpaper would leave you with a smooth but not polished surface. I have not had problems with the round sliding forward enough to cause the mag to drop free.
  14. You may want to try and reduce your front feed lip to .354 on one mag. Your rounds may have to much angle and causing your FTE pressure problems. It helps a lot if you polish the bottom of the feed lips.
  15. The Mec-gar mags are slightly shorter. I can get 19 in reliably for reloads and 20 on the oem mag. When you load the Mec-gar mags tap the back and bottom every 5 rounds to take care of the shaker problem. The spring catches in the space between the dawson base and mag. I'm using modified Mec-gar followers and trimmed wolf xtra power springs.
