Finally read the FAQs

Finally read the FAQs (3/11)

  1. On an SP-01 that I have, the front of the left grip panel pulls away fro the frame when installed. Then when gripped, it flexes back to the frame. It’s a little less than a business cards width of movement but it’s annoying and not proper. it does it both with the LOK grips and the new Henning grips, which makes me think the gun has a weird spot rather than the grips. The stock grips don’t do this but they are mor flexible I think. The same grips don’t move on a Shadow 2 frame.

    CZ TS 2

    I want the fixed rear if it fits the TSO!
  3. I had primer swipe and a stove pipe with extended pin and factory spring or reduced firing pin spring. I haven’t used CCI primers, can’t get any. As for the hammer pins, they were snug enough to stay in on their own so I didn’t stake and have had no issues. I have many thousands of rounds on the Apex kits in the Shadow 2 and TSO all using Winchester primers. Factory firing pin and spring, 15lb hammer springs. Very nice. I have the same kit in a Shadow 2 that is still DA/SA and with either a 13 or 15lb hammer spring, factory firing pin and spring works perfectly as well. Winchester primers as well. I do t find the trigger too heavy but it has a nice break and easier to prep.
  4. 18 on left, CGW center and 19 on right.
  5. Will this work? Heavy spring from CZ Custom. https://czcustom.com/cz-75-trigger-return-spring-heavy.html
  6. Does it matter? I have two TSOs in 40. A 2018 and a 2019, at least the way I understand the markings in front of the triangle before the serial numbers. The rod in the 18 TSO is Shadow 2/SP01 length and can’t be seen from muzzle end as you can on the S2 and SP01. The rod in the 19 is about half inch longer and is visible from the muzzle. Both are SS, not plastic. I’ve had no issues from the 18, apart from a broken slide stop pin at about 15k rounds, and it shoots just fine. Totally reliable. It just struck me as odd, and OCD, I ordered a new SS guide rod from Cajun. It’s kinda in the middle for length. Thoughts? Both guns work fine and shoot accurately.
  7. After several thousand rounds, I’ve settled on the shorter length and 4.5gr of Sport Pistol. 180gr Blue Bullet 4.5gr Sport Pistol WSPP 1.125” COAL Mixed brass 173-175 PF Also, dumps brass nicely about 6-7’ away with a 14lb recoil and 15lb hammer spring.
  8. I’m working with the primer pro with V2 plate and Winchester small pistol primers. Spent probably 45 minutes fiddling with it. Broke out the pledge and sprayed it down. So far it’s working well. Slowish, but beats hunt and peck for me. Needs to have 200 primers or more in it for sure. I’ll be trying some CCI later. If I need to switch, I will. I do want to try a PAL for smaller loading sessions and as an option.
  9. I built a 2x6 bench with 4x4 legs and 2x6 frame. Two sheets of 3/4 ply glued and screwed. Lagged to the wall. It fits a 650 and RL1100 but may need more space for the AmmoBot. Next one will be one of these, or at least the top. https://www.uline.com/Product/Detail/H-1137-MAP/Industrial-Packing-Tables/Industrial-Packing-Table-72-x-30-Maple-Top-with-Rounded-Edge
  10. I tweaked the lead thread with a file and put some oil on it and ran it in. Works well now. Primer slide is working better, the knurled nut was to tight on top of the tube.
  11. Works great with Blue Bullets 40 caliber.
  12. I’m very interested in the primer slide polish. Out of 200 or so rounds I’ve had three not get primed. I too removed the ratchet. It seems common to do so. It’s loud and can make it hard to clear the press if there is an issue with the toolhead partway down.
  13. It’s probably not officially recommended to remove the ratchet but the noise and feel bug me. It’s been recommended a few places and if you have an issue, you can’t raise the toolhead to clear it. I had a primer end up sideways as something was out of adjustment. It prevented the toolhead from lowering all the way to be able to raise it back up and I couldn’t clear it.
  14. Got it running and it is worth every penny! I like the 650 I have but this priming on the downstroke is awesome. I plan to add an auto drive of some sort and then maybe add a CP2000. It was all setup from Dillon, dies, swage and primer depth. I tweaked the seating depth a touch and took off the ratchet. Put the bullet feeder on, the die was very hard to install. Fit fine on the 650 and the size die from the 650 threaded in just fine from the top and bottom. All good now. I only have one issue, I’ve had 3 out of 200 or so rounds end up not getting primed. Messy and wasteful. The primers find there way down to the bench so I think a slight tweak will get it. Any advice on adjusting or polishing the primer slide? I’ll check the upper knurled nut on the primer tube and I have a .45 case on the primer following rod. I’ll look at the feed tip and the other suggestions from here about the 1050 priming system but I’m not sure they’re the same. The important stuff. Ordered Feb 14, got it April 6 direct from Dillon. There is a number etched in the base, 0320 but I believe it’s a date not a serial number as a friend has one with 0320 as well. Both delivered this week.
