  1. Yup, too heavy a spring for the load.
  2. So when it does run, how far are the empties flying?
  3. If the gun broke the link pin in the barrel, it is not fit correctly. Have somebody that knows what they're doing check it.
  4. Take it out and use a center punch to raise some material on the bottom of the sight base. (Dimple the sight, not the slide!) Re-install it with some red loctite.
  5. The way the ejector is cut is hitting the case too low and kicking the case up. You want to hit the case as high as possible to get it to come out flat. The extractor hook may have a radius cut on it which will make the case flip up. Super is easy to make run clean. Your gunsmith should know how to do that.

    Hi John! Go with 9 Major in a 5" gun. They are the softest shooting competitive guns. You shouldn't need to have the chamber lengthened in a DVC but STI's have had issues the last couple of years that you may not want to experience. If you want a metal grip, look really hard at Cheely's E2 grip. They are really nice and feel good. Shaped like a CZ/PT Evo and come with all of the grip parts. (Magwell, mainspring housing, grip safety and mag release.) And not too hard to fit if you pay attention to what you're doing. If you want to chat Open give me a call or e-mail me. "I'm your huckleberry"!
  7. Probably removed the burr that develops from the barrel whacking the magazine when the gun cycles and the barrel moves all the way to the rear at link down and stopping on the VIS. Nothing to worry about.
  8. Gee, a 1911 with a Glock lockup! How innovative!!!
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  12. 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!
  13. 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.
