    Shadow 2

    I’m normally not a fan of recoil buffers pads. I tried one once in a 2011 and it came apart on me in less than 500 rnds and it also made it harder to release the slide. I’ve shied away from them ever since. However, when I got my Shadow 2 I decided to give it a try. I’ve shot matches with it in and without, did Bill Drills and compared HFs, slow fire accuracy tests... and the thing still looks like it is brand new after 4K-ish rounds from shooting matches pretty steady all winter/spring. It doesn’t impair any of the gun’s function that I can tell, recoil feels about the same, splits and hits at speed are the same... So for the first time I’ve decided to leave it in until something happens that indicates I should take it out.
  2. The P10F basically uses a P-09 mag, right? For my P10C I got a P-09 mag and added the 140mm mag extension that Springer Precision sells. 23 rnds with the Grams follower. Fits the mag gauge.
  3. Tough decision. The traditionalist approach is to have at least one 1911 in .45acp. Some like the .40SW for ease in using the same ammo in Limited div. But you can’t discount the sheer fun of shooting a 1911 chambered in 9mm. Plus having a couple extra rounds can make a difference in stage planning and let you take more risk. I couldn’t decide, so I ended up with iterations of all three in my gun safe. But I will say that I started with the .45acp and shot it for at least 2 years in SS before getting the urge to scratch the .40 and 9mm itch. I shot the fo-five at a match not too long ago and it was just like hanging out with an old friend.
  4. Initially I tried the 3 and 3.5 lb HBi striker springs. Ran fine, gave me a sub 4 lb trigger pull with the lightest spring. No creep that I recall. However when I switched to the CGW striker I started getting light strikes with CCI primers. Thought it was sloppy primer seating at first, but I still got them occasionally even when I ensured I was seating them deep enough. With Federal primers no issues. However this gun does double duty as an EDC, so I went back to the stock striker spring and stopped getting light strikes. 4.5 lb trigger pull with decent wall and minimal creep.

    Thanks! Handled a G48 today at the range. It felt good in the hand. Reason I asked: 8 rnds in the G43 w/ TTI +2 vs 10 rnds in G43X more or less same size package. Seems like a no-brainer to me.

    Do you have a TTI +2 on your G43? If you do, curious how the length of the G43X grip compares to the G43 w/ the +2 TTI. Which one is longer?

    CZ Shadow 2

    I exchanged the four springs and installed a CGW extended firing pin. GTG in my opinion.
  8. Started out using a 15 lb recoil spring, but after I added the RMR I needed the 18 lb spring for the gun to function 100%. I suspect that was because the gun was refinished after slide milling and needed some “break-in”. Now that I’ve got 3K-ish rounds post-RMR milling, I may be able to revert back to the 15 lb RS, but the 18 seems to be working just fine so not going to mess with it.
  9. Springer Precision makes a mag extension for the CZ P-09 (should be same mag as the P10F) that has a capacity of 23 rnds with a Grams follower/spring and fits the USPSA mag gauge (I measured). I’m using it with my P10C, but I have to be careful not to reload to it if I am at slide lock since there’s nothing to prevent overinsertion and bending the ejector. So typically my starter mag is the P-09 w/ SP basepad, then I reload to a P10C mag with the Shield Arms +5 extension (20 rnds). https://shop.springerprecision.com/Springer-Precision-CZ-P09-P07-P10C-EZ-140mm-base-pads-SP0316.htm
  10. I have a P10C that I’ve been shooting for the better part of a year now. I bought it to be a carry gun but shot it in Production for a few matches to get used to it and “break it in”. Mid summer I sent the slide off to be milled for an RMR and I’ve been shooting it in Carry Optics ever since. Despite having other guns for other divisions, I find myself continuing to shoot the CZ. The P10C’s trigger and ergonomics is what drew me to it. I handled one at 2017 Iron Nats and was impressed. I did a few things to mine that may or may not have been needed, but I like to tinker. CGW striker, CGW’s fix for the striker rotation, CGW’s guiderod and recoil spring, HBi trigger, and Apex comp mag release. And of course the RMR with co-witnessed iron sights since this is a carry gun. I haven’t shot the P10F or even handled one, but based on my experience with the P10C I’m sure it’ll do just fine, especially if you have big hands. Personally I’m waiting on the release of the P10S...
  11. Fair enough, but I spent $825 on the S2 (buying it used) and another $50 from CGW to re-spring it. For another $130 I can add hammer and disco (if I feel the need). But it may be good to go with just the stock hammer and disco, that’s why I want to shoot it before deciding. But consider also that I’ve re-sprung just about every gun that I shoot in USPSA... My first STI 2011, I replaced all the springs, replaced the beavertail (bc I don’t like the narrow scallop cuts that STI uses on the tang of their beavertail), and had a gunsmith fit an EGW hammer and sear. Ditto on all my STI 1911’s that I shoot in SS. On the two striker fired guns I compete with (G34 and P10C) I also changed out recoil spring, striker spring, striker, trigger shoe, guide rod, and sights. I think comp shooters are no different than a lot of car people. We like to tinker.
  12. I have one coming that should be at my FFL this week. My plan right now is to just re-spring the gun (main, recoil, TRS, ext firing pin and FP spring) then go shoot it a bunch. Comp hammer and disco from CGW if I feel like it needs it.
  13. Shot this classifier last weekend. Personally I like this kind of classifier more than the typical stand-and-shoot classifiers. Biggest challenge for me was remembering which of the two middle targets to engage from either position. I debated on how to shoot it. Shoot all three from up range then move, or go left-right and shoot one of the middle ones on the move. Ended up on String 1 shooting left then right and engaged one of the middle targets on the move, reload then left-middle-right. On String 2, went left-middle-right, reload while retreating, then right-middle-left (with a slight pause on the middle array as my brain caught up and confirmed that I was shooting at the correct target...). To keep it simple on the middle array I decided to always shoot the left one first and the right one after the reload. On the squad I was shooting on, one poor guy forgot the reload on String 1, another confused soul put 6 hits on the left middle and 2 on the right middle. Bit of a brain teaser...
  14. I’m using the Carbon Arms ratchet attachment with my ELS belt. Got rid of the two studs on the end of the ELS outer belt as the studs were no longer needed IMO. I took the end of the belt apart (peeled the layers apart to unscrew the studs) but in retrospect I probably could have just cut off the end with the studs and called it good. I still use the inner belt it came with, but really like the functionality of the ratchet.
