  1. The other side of the coin are shooters that shot for years and kind of drifted away. I shot for 20 or so years, have had a number of nice high end 2011 and 1911 open and limited guns that I sold when I lost interest in the game. The last year or so I wanted to shoot a match now and then, to reconnect with old friends as much as anything. A XDM 5.25 with a little trigger work and a little touch here and there serves the purpose very well.---------------Larry

    XD(m) 10mm extractor

    Springer and powder river precision have almost everthing you could need.----------------Larry
  3. Good point, but 95% with a open gun then doing it again with older eyes and a production gun are two different things. I,m mostly thinking of the time evolved. This person would be an accomplished shooter at any rate. But if he dropped down to a A the progression would take longer just because of the way the classifier system works. I just feel there is an advantage there. But hats off to a guy that can get 1 GM let alone 2 or more. I couldn't do it once let alone twice.---------------Larry
  4. I would think a guys 2nd GM would be easier at a older age simply because he started the 2d division as a Master. I think the age at the first one is more telling. We had this discussion at the shop some time ago , Benny Hill made GM at 48 and his thoughts were that 3 or 4 years later he would never have made it. And by the way, at 72, after a knee replacement, a 6 way by pass and the loss of his left eye there are still days he can turn up the wick and lite the bad ass fire.--------------Larry

    Springer Precision Guide Rod

    Not really, but after shooting 1911s for years I had a drawer full of springs, lots more choices.------------Larry

    XD(m) 10mm extractor

    I would bet that the extractor is the same as the xdm 40, Springer has them. I really don't see a problem here unless its deforming brass to the point that its not reloadable. I have a couple of guns that get that mark at the port. The brass is reloadable, I just shoot them.--------------Larry

    Springer Precision Guide Rod

    Are you talking about the guide rod bushing? It goes in the slide at the front. XDM guide rod larger dia than the springer rod, the bushing reduces the size of the hole in the front end of the slide.-----------Larry

    Is vvn320 worth the extra cost

    320 is a good powder, I used it for 40 major and liked it. When it got hard or impossible to find I switched to TG and never saw a good reason to go back.---------------Larry

    Holster ? XDM 5.25 vs 4.25

    I have a 4.5 OSP in 9 with a DPP and a 5.25 in 40, both fit the same Blade Tec. Same rig for both.-----------Larry

    1911 guide rod spring plug for XDm

    I guess the real way to answer this is a xdm guide rod and bushing that uses a 1911 recoil spring. Springer Prescion an others has them. A1911 rod will not work.------------Larry

    Tactical Solution 2211

    Both of the guns I use these on are switch outs, both have really good triggers with 19lb springs. Grit your teeth and pay for the ts mags. All the others I have tried didn't deliver. You get what you pay for here. Mine dosent seem too picky about ammo as long as its hi velocity and clean. If the gun is clean it will run standard velocity but it will always run hi velocity stuff, the exception here is Federal Auto Match and it seems to be a little hotter that most standard velocity.------------Larry
