  1. Here’s one way. Use the filters to find what you want https://practiscore.com/search/matches
  2. I second what he said. Dry fire until it is there every time.
  3. I’m trying to post a video of my recoil management for all to laugh at. ...It seems a good laugh is needed.
  4. I’ll take a stab at it before you reply... The light strike problem.. Pull the striker out. As you do notice any resistance. This should be straightforward and like clock work...press down on the plastic housing thing, remove the plate from the rear of the slide, push down on the block (click) and the striker comes out. If any friction is felt, I would look for a reassembly error when you put in the competition spring. No strike when everything is assembled... If I’m reading your first post correctly, it sounds like the stiker is hitting the block. If I remember correctly..by CLOSING the loop (candy cane) it allows the trigger more travel rearward before the sear is engaged and the striker is released. This will also give the cam on top of the trigger bar more travel to deactivate the striker block. If I’m correct about this, and if you close the loop to much, you’ll end up not releasing the striker at all. If that happens, open the loop a small amount at a time until you have a very small but noticeable amount of over travel (mine is about a business card thickness), short reset and enough travel to deactivate the block.

  5. So you’ve removed the striker block and getting 50% ignition, and with it installed the striker is not passing it? Is that correct?
  6. have you solved the problem? I might know what’s up.
  7. Then you should be ok. I don’t have the ram
  8. Btw.. you’ll likely have an issue with the APEX sear not resetting if you use it with the competition sear spring. There’s not enough time for the little guy to always get the job done. When I was sorting this out with my 5” 9, I couldn’t tell much, if any, difference between it and the factory one.
  9. True about the short chamber. As to stock M&P barrel accuracy....No doubt about it an Apex can tighten things up in the gun and on target...but...I’ve read folk making the statement that their stocker M&P barrel groups better when it’s dirty. I’d like to make an observation on that as I’m currently dealing with the same. Brass needs something to hang on too. Dirty cambers do *sometimes* cause accuracy to IMPROVE because the brass sticks in the chamber. I’m talking dewell time. During expansion, as the bullet is leaving, to clean or polished chamber and the gun will start to cycle..unlock. Notice the 1911 brass at the range that have a smeared primer strike...that’s prolly what’s up. Grimed chambers offer more for the brass to grab. (Yes..I know full well there’s more to the story of why some M&Ps have accuracy issues.) I’ll be ordering an Apex soon. Until then, I’m not cleaning her up before a match. ....She likes to play a little dirty. CB
  10. I figured that was you reasoning. Id seriously have a 2.0 40L on order if they could be had in all black. That’s VERY repetitive tolerancs by S&W ..or you got lucky with that fit. Btw..how is the Apex in the 2.0 vs 1.0?
  11. I’ll be watching for replies... Is this “full-size” top end a long slide by chance? ...Id like a 2.0 L in black.
  12. Didn't have any ejection problems when I still had it. Did at first,..Lowered the port
  13. Nice video! Good work! I'd like to comment on what could be happening.. Two things.. 1- OAL is a big deal to accuracy in group size. 2- grip on gun is being Influanced by recoil duration/implulse, causing the gun to travel left in your hands. I say that because those groups are not as tight.

  15. Your slide is returning to fast. Fixes... Stronger mag spring ....cut coils from recoil spring (long explanation why, but it slows spring rate) ...polish up the mag lips.
