    Shield Arms

    Got mine and they wouldn't lock the slide back (with the Shield mag catch). Shield said early guns like mine need the extra power mag springs (Glock has modified the frame twice). They sent me two and the lockback issue went away. Finally tested them this morning. Ran about 60 through each (loaded with 15, plus one in the chamber) and they ran well. Next step is to test them with carry ammo. Shield guy told me all mags will now come with the new springs.
  2. Yep, 36F. Taken about five minutes apart. I suspect the Marksman barrel with the new rifling may be to blame. I guess I'll load some 4.3s and go from there.
  3. I am working on a Precision Delta 124 HP load for my Gen 5 17 MOS for CO. Started at 4.0 grains of Titegroup at 1.120, which was slow and was not a big surprise. Went to 4.1 and 4.2. Need 1009 to make minor and I want 1050-1060 (130-131 pf). 4.2 averaged 1022 (126,728). I had hoped the 4.2 charge would get me where I wanted to be. Have any of you thought your gen 5 was slower than previous Glocks? 4.1 went 1060 in my gen 3 34. Yes it has poly rifling and an additional 7/8" barrel, but others have said that 4.0 makes 130 pf or so all day out of a 17. I've seen no pressure signs, so should I shut up and add powder or shut up and get a 34 MOS? 4.3 or 4.4 seems high.

    Shield Arms

    PGGUNS--it's good to hear they run. I pre-ordered two for my 48 and am still waiting on them. Hopefully, I am part of the third batch. They are recommending their aluminum mag catch, because the metal mags will supposedly wear on the stock plastic one. I may get one, but will wait until my two mags show up first. Now if they can take this approach and apply it to a G17 or G22 mag...
  5. Take a look at some Sevigny Competition sights if you can. They are my favorite sight picture of any gun I own.
  6. I second what Rowdy said about changing targets. Something IDPA actually does better. Also, reward competitor plaques/trophies with the 5-6-7 plan. Five shooters to recognize first place, six for second, seven for third. Plaques are not that expensive and I am not ashamed to put a second or even third place one on my mancave wall. I kinda like match t-shirts. Cotton is fine. What I don't like is what happened at a certain area match last year--asked for shirt size on application, then on sign-in day they said, "Oh, we decided shirts would cost too much." wth
  7. Yes but my point was that the Wolff spring may not be as heavy as you think.
  8. Factory weight is 17, I believe, but that's with an ISMI-type spring. Supposedly, Wolff and ISMI of the same weight are two different animals. I bet a 16 pound ISMI would lock your slide tight. Don't be afraid to try a heavier Wolff.
  9. Glock 48 if I'm shooting Glock competitively, Springfield EMP4 if I'm competing with 1911/2011.

    downside to MOS?

    I believe gen 5 uses a different height sight.

    Yeah sucks getting beat by a guy who has to go home after the match and study for a spelling test tomorrow. I would gladly trade him my glass ankle and cholesterol medicine for some of his youthful energy. Congrats to the kid, though. I hear ya on the basepads--Arredondo is less trouble, at least on a Glock mag. What little I've used TTI on a Glock mag seemed like it would eventually wear down the tabs on the mag tube if it's constantly off and back on.

    Yes, Lim-A 2nd. What was it Ricky Bobby said? Second place is first loser. Keep a mag brush in your bag and immediately scrub every mag that you drop. I've had trouble with dusty Glock mags in the past.
  13. Same problem with my gen 5 G17. BBI 147 had to be loaded way shorter than I was comfortable with. Got the barrel reamed and now I shoot anything I want.

    Did you disassemble and clean every mag that hit the ground after each stage? If this was at the Atomic Blast, several stages were quite dusty. Even Glock mags are susceptible to dust. Ask me how I know.
