  1. Gee, a 1911 with a Glock lockup! How innovative!!!
  2. Brazo's and Cylinder and Slide are Extreme Engineering parts. Nowlin's look like Extreme parts. That's all I have used in my builds for the last 20 years. I don't like the feel of the Koenig hammer and EGW hard sear combo with a 15 lb. mainspring. That feels mushy to me, not crisp like the Extreme Engineering Ultra Light parts. YMMV.
  3. Will SV triggers fit the Evo frame without a lot of filing on the the trigger track?

    And their new, updated website no longer shows any parts for sale. Just their new confusing complete gun lineup.
  5. To answer your questions and a comment: If you want to be able to shoot the same pistol in Single Stack and use it as an Open gun for steel, I would leave it as is for uspsa and get another barrel and cone comp to use as an Open steel gun. I would get a mount to fit the rear dovetail and run the red dot of your choice. I would have a new barrel and comp fit by someone that knows what they are doing so the front of the slide doesn't get messed up and won't work right with the bushing barrel. I wouldn't shorten it or lighten it until you wanted to dedicate it as steel gun. Weight isn't significantly different than a STI. Lowers are about the same and a lightened slide is lighter! My load is 5.3 of Silhouette with a 124 MG cmj, 1.170 OAL. That is a 119 power factor. Springfield's are not cut for a reverse plug. A competent smith with the right tooling should be able to do it, no problem. Good luck with your project!
  6. Thanks Chris, it's Sues. She wanted a single stack for steel and found the R.O. for $600 and I did all the rest. I have done 3 others like it. The OP could get by fairly inexpensively if he went this route. He would only need to buy the cone and comp and have a gunsmith put it together for him. He'd probably want a mount and a sight but he could do all of that well within his $1k budget.
  7. You might think about using the barrel that you have. Here's a couple of pics of a R.O. that I shortend the slide 1/2 inch, threaded the factory barrel .575 x 40, used an EGW conversion cone and a comp I made. The comp is similiar to Cheely's 2 port comp. This thing is super accurate, quick and blast to shoot!
  8. Nope. I have dozens of EE sets in service with no issues. One of my personal guns has upwards of 80k rounds on the original EE parts that I put in it. Still a safe 1.75 lb trigger.
  9. Cylinder and Slide look just like Extreme Engineering parts. Only difference appears to be price and the Brinell hardness test punch marks. Extreme makes parts for many private labeled name gunsmith parts. Fyi.

    KKM lead time?

    About 6 weeks seems to be the norm now. Hopefully, after they build all of the island/hybrid barrels that Shooter's Connection has commissioned, their on hand stock will improve or intervals will get shorter. I have 4 barrels on order with them now and will order another tomorrow. It would be nice to get them within a couple of weeks!
  11. Too much overtravel can allow the pistol to go auto. Check it.
  12. If you want the gun to feel heavy and slow that will do it for you. Personally I like it lighter and quicker. It's all a personal thing, what you like.
  13. Skeet, 5 stand, Continental or wobble trap and International or Bunker if a club near you have any of these.
