  1. I recently got a Shadow 2 Orange. The bushing seems different from the CZC ones I've seen on the Accushadows, and don't Accushadows have full trigger jobs? My Orange has a great SA trigger (3.25lbs, short reset) but the DA is identical to my SP-01, 12+ lbs unless it is from the halfcock. The slide's internals are highly polished in many areas and the entire barrel is in a very high polish. Seems to have some overlap in features with the Accushadows though as well as similar prices. It didn't come with an extra safety like the Standard S2. It has the winged one installed on it.
  2. I understand as I too value 100% reliability.
  3. One of the main reasons I went to the Xtreme trigger was the stock trigger has the hole for the (useless, IMO) overtravel stop. It irked me and the reduced curvature was just the icing on the cake.
  4. Interesting. I use excess amounts of TW-25B and SLP 2000 30 weight on areas where grease wouldn't be appropriate.
  5. I actually liked how the Tanfoglio front sight works as it let me easily install Dawsons. I always farm out sight installs but at least the Tanfoglio design is more user-serviceable. Being fairly new to the guns I guess I'll see if one flies out on me eventually but I'm a low round count high maintenance kind of user.
  6. It seems there is very little information/feedback out there on the polymer guns. I was curious if the front sights on them were fixed like the cheaper EAA steel guns but couldn't even google up an answer to that.
  7. That one hits a little closer to home....turf war in Gardonne, V.T.? Haha
  8. 3mm is the stock width for the regular fixed sight. I measured mine at .118" which is what made me go with the Dawson .125" x .115" since the .120" tall was only .100" wide. I thought about the Xtreme sights but it seemed every post I could find people preferred the Dawson.
  9. You think with him being gone that will affect the parts availability for Tanfoglios? What was the extent of their relationship on the "Xtreme" parts?
  10. I went with .125 since it was the lowest one closest to the factory width as I like a "full" sight picture. I think the .120" was .015" thinner. I don't "Shoot through the dot" like a lot of people, I "cut the bullseye in half" so I still had to raise my rear just a little bit to hit POA/POI at 15yds. I actually installed two, one in my Stock II and one in my Stock III. Had a hell of a time with the Stock II, both getting the factory sight out and the new one in. When the new one went in it shaved the side of the sight the full length and I had a metal "peel" to throw away. Stock III came right out and went right in.
  11. PD did a hell of a job on my Stock II. They put all of their springs in it (15.5lb on the hammer spring) and I think a firing block too since I got an extra one back along with the Xtreme 1 piece sear, titan hammer, BOLO interrupter, and Xtreme Trigger (I couldn't stand the location of the overtravel screw in the factory trigger) and it was 5lb DA 2 lb SA when I got it back.
  12. I love topics like this. I've seen the rankings too: 1. Federal 2. Winchester 3. Remington 4. CCI But also always wonder where S&B, IMI, Fiocchi, and even M882 primers fall. Depending on who you talk to these primers are all harder than CCI or somewhere in the middle of the pack.
  13. They made him an offer he couldn't refuse.
  14. The bogies are more than aggressive enough for me. The o-rings worked a bit better than with the Xtreme grips as the screw head is more shrouded. The still bulge out a bit at the rear where they are not though, but not so bad I'll remove them like with the Xtreme grips.
  15. Damn, I already ordered bogies and they should be here tomorrow. I thought they'd be more aggressive because they look like the "golfball" texture that is really aggressive in VZ grips, like the back half of their Operator IIs. EDIT: Now that I go back to the site and look.....yeah, the circles are more "full" than what VZ does so there won't be the same sharp edges.
