  1. Tactical Sport Orange technical thread.

    I disagree. While it is light it can use improvements in the creep and reset aspects, as well as the ergos of the trigger pad itself.
  2. Springer TS 140mm base pads?

    I will say after using the Springer TS pads for only one match, the retention with the set screw is a terrible design. The screw fits so tightly to the lip of the mag body that the screw threads engage the mag body and it takes zero effort to round out the hex socket of the set screw. They came with extra set screws, I should've known that was a bad sign from the start. I replaced two set screws from the word "go", installing the pads and backing out the screws to retain the pad was enough to round out the socket. There is a thread locking compound on the threads from the manufacturer, and I don't think this helps the stripping issue. The hex driver they send with the pads is next to useless, it rounds off promptly as well, within the first couple uses installing the pads. If I were to do it again, I'd go with the CZCs. I sat down to clean mags after a USPSA this weekend and had one set screw that rounded out before I could get it recessed far enough to remove the pad. Now I've got a mag with a basepad that won't come off. Sweet.
  3. Tactical Sport Orange technical thread.

    I suspected this from the first time I dry-fired my TSO and felt the flex of the trigger pulling with the hammer down. It gives quite a bit. This off-season I'd like to install something like the 6SAO or CGW flat trigger. Maybe just send it to CGW and have them perform their magic.
  4. Shadow 2 should I spring for a CGW hammer?

    Cajun Jalapeño Works, cuz they make it hot!
  5. Tactical Sport holster

    I came here to post this. I have one for my TSO. I've been using Blade Tech Black Ice holsters for years, and RHT is definitely a step up from that.
  6. Springer TS 140mm base pads?

    I ordered 6 SP basepads last week, in a backordered color. I don't think the set screw will be a big deal, I keep an Allen key set in my range bag anyway. It's not like we're cleaning mags on the clock. At $37.50/ea, including the Grams spring and follower, it was much cheaper to outfit the 6 mags I have for my TSO.

    Some combos require that you do some fitting to the follower. This is one reason I prefer Grams followers if they're available for the application. I liked them in my STI mags, so I ordered some for my TSO mags when I was ordering basepads. I think you do have to use their spring, however, as the attachment to the follower is different than the factory follower and spring.

    NP, you can trim the springs you have and you might have to sand on the follower a tiny bit to get the follower past the transition in to the basepad

    CZ Custom or Springer Precision
  10. +10% Wolff mag springs

    11, I believe.

    How many coils do the springs have? Sounds like you may have 13 coil springs, made for 170mm mags.
  12. You mean like a Czechmate?
  13. TSO set up

    I looked at CZCs initially, I like the retaining clip on them better than the set screw.
  14. TSO set up

    CZCs have been out of stock all week, SP are in-stock. I also have 6 mags I'll be putting base pads on, so the cleaning frequency won't be as big of issue. I also don't clean my mags between stages. Dirty mags haven't been an issue for me, so I generally don't do it.
  15. TSO set up

    I'm looking at 140mm basepads for my 9mm TSO, specifically Springer. I don't see a capacity listed, nor can I find one in the places I've looked. With their extra power spring and factory follower, is the setup +3 (23+1) and with the Grams kit +4 (24+1)? Is one setup any more/less reliable than the other?
