  1. Nothing but good things to say about them and their work. Don’t hesitate to call or stop by. Joe will take care of you.
  2. How do the Tripp mags and pads work with the Ice magwell? I have a Dawson Ice (with gap) on a Trojan 45. I'm using Wilson 47D mags with Dawson pads. Fully loaded, the mags are almost impossible to seat. Are the Tripp mags (or Wilson ETM with shorter Dawson pads) longer than the 47Ds? I want to get mags that work and are easy to reload, even if that means cutting coils in the 47Ds since I already have them.
  3. Yes, I cleaned it. I had hoppes oil on the rails, but I guess it didn't provide enough lubrication. I’ll be using slide glide from now on. I never thought the slide and frame would seize with hoppes oil. STI does not make stainless guns to my knowledge.
  4. I recently picked up an STI Trojan from Dawson Precision. I’ve shot one match with it. Probably less than 250 rounds total through the gun. I noticed the the slide was a little stiff and thought it was the disconnector catching on the slide. I disassembled the gun and noticed what looks like galling on the right frame rail. Has anyone ever seen this on an STI? I read about this happening on stainless guns in the past. I’ll be calling Dawson in the morning.
  5. Looks great! How is the checkering on the front and back straps? Looks pretty shallow, like the newer Stock 2s.
  6. For Production, I have a tricked out SP01 Shadow from CZ custom, tricked out Tanfo LimPro and stock 2 from Patriot Defense, and a Stock gen3 G34. The triggers on the non-Glock guns are nicer than the G34, but I can shoot the Glock faster. I shot the G34 for years before I got the other guns. I thought the better triggers and heavier weight would be more comfortable to shoot, but I still shoot the Glock faster (splits and transitions). I always thought of the Glock grip angle as making it harder to get used to the other platforms and never thought about the grip angle actually helping with recoil control. Plus the square grip of the Glock locks into my hands better than anything else, including a Brazos custom 2011. I’ve only shot the stock 2 a few times and liked it, but I’m nowhere near feeling comfortable with it. I just got an STI Trojan to try out single stack for a while, but I think I will come back to a Glock for production. Glad to know I’m not the only one that keeps coming back to the G-rock.

    Hoster for gen4 g34

    I think my Bladetech holsters are the classic version. I purchased most of mine before they made the signature series.

    Bladetech DOH (or boss drop for something a little more sturdy)
  9. Without the tape over my dominant eye, I have double vision of the front sight. The tape gets rid of the “second” sight effortlessly. I don’t have to squint or move my head. So, I would say that it makes my transitions and follow-up shots faster because I can pick up the front sight quicker with the tape than I can without it. Had I used my dominant eye when I started shooting, it may be a different story. But, I’ve never thought that the tape affected my progress or performance.
  10. I'm cross eye dominant (right hand, left eye). Just put a small piece of tape on your glasses over your dominant eye. Make sure the tape is small enough so that it blocks the front sight, but you can see under/around it for movement and reloads. This gives you the benefit of both eyes open for movement/reloads. When the buzzer goes off, you'll never know its there.
  11. My mistake. I remember a video with a 2 piece . Maybe henning?
  12. It is a PITA and takes a while. Keep trying. You have to put a lot of downward pressure on the spring. Watch Memphis Mechanic's video if you haven't already.
  13. +1 (except that I am one of the old style hoarders). I don't want to have to worry about which size mags are in my bag.
