Calls Shots (8/11)

  1. Generally speaking, you want to reduce weight of the slide and add weight elsewhere. The reason to go steel plate is that the plate will be more durable, but the body of the optics are aluminum anyway. The screw holes in the steel will be harder to strip, but you should really be using a torque wrench to tighten the screws down, in which case you won’t strip it anyway unless you cross-thread them. Some may feel it’s better to elongate the holes on and ruin a 35 dollar plate rather than the body of a $600 optic. My original point was that it is too much of a pain in the butt to try to change out these plates on a regular basis. You will also have to either buy a ton of mags or change the base pads and springs and re-zero all the time. You’re going to have to choose one, and since I saw in another thread that you’re having the slide milled, you may as well stick with Carry Optics and buy another gun eventually for Production, which you never will, because you’ll like CO too much.
  2. As someone who literally changed (for the first time on a brand A01-LD) the iron sight plate to a steel RMR/SRO plate last night, I will say that it is a huge pain in the ass to change them out. You have to pin the plates each time with the extractor pin, which did not go easily, I broke a 1/16 punch. I would also imagine that if you changed it out frequently, you will eventually wear out that hole for the pin, and it may become too loose. So in other words, if you’re looking for something you can change frequently, this probably is not a good option. I know it’s expensive, but probably better to go two different guns or at least 2 different slides.
  3. Also, if the slide is closed, which it always is in open division doing a reload or a load, the ejector won’t get bent.
  4. Yeah but who cares about that? It doesn’t affect the function of the gun, and it will only get so deep.

    SP01 vs S2

    Just so you guys know, it’s much cooler to like the original shadow better than the Shadow 2.
  6. What’s the downside here with the new mag release? Is the mag harder to seat with the new part? In open division, anyway, we never do slide lock reloads or loads so I don’t see over insertion as being a major issue?
  7. Before I break out the Dremmel… for the grams followers for the P-09 mags…do you have to cut off the tab for maximum round count like a 2011 follower? Thanks
  8. I will also add, that I’ve not found any springs that were off by very much of what they were labeled. Definitely none that were a full pound off. I cannot get consistent readings within 0.5 pounds.
  9. I know it’s not a popular opinion, but I haven’t found them to be very repeatable with consistent readings, therefore, not very useful. It’s not like a calipers where 1.16 is 1.16.
  10. Otto noise Barrier with Peltor sport tactical 500 over the top.
  11. Yeah. I know. I didn’t say it to be funny, I don’t own an Infinity, and I don’t feel that way. I said it to make people think about what they’re doing in a different light.
  12. I don’t understand why anyone would want to hard chrome an extractor.
  13. @LordManHammerWe’ve all felt this way at one point. You’ll get it figured out.
