  1. I have two full sets now for my M&P's, make a big difference not having to deal with that big rounded unnecessary lip protruding from the front of the base pad! For a couple bucks more Scott will engrave mag #'s and name and come in multi colors.... Basically they rock!

  3. Just got back from range a bit ago... Stock mag... No problems SVI Mags... No problems STI Mag... Locked back with 1 round in mag Repeated each mag 3 times with 4 rounds in mag. Stock and SVI Mags... No problems STI Mag locked back with one round in mag all 3 times On STI mag prob a combo of follower and slide lock. Definitely the slide lock has room to be filed down on inside but I won't do it as I had planned on running SVI's anyway. Accuracy was acceptable, need to order a taller front sight from Dawson, which I was going to do anyway. The one that comes with looks to be a .125 and I like a .100 to .110. It was hitting 1 to 2 inches high at 25yds with rear sight buried. Very soft shooting with light recoil master with good ejection, 5 to 6 feet and in a nice little pile. Load was 147gr bear creeks wit 3.1 of AA Nitro 100NF, forgot chrono at home but that is my production load for M&P pro. Lowered trigger pull to 2lbs. With factory sear/disconnector/hammer... No problems. Even more impressed with this for the price.... Now looking at the 51961 Single Stack;) Hope this helps. Doug
  4. Oh two things I forgot to mention. On the trigger... I am going to have to fit the grip safety leg as the bow is obviously longer than the stock the leg of the grip safety is not dropping down behind it... easy fix. The Magwell... Not sure what the set screw in the bottom of the magwell is for as the magwell, once I got it back on, VERY TIGHT FIT, and the mainspring housing pin back in, was not going anywhere. Doug
  5. Here's what I can tell you thus far from my vast experience on this subject.... I picked up my 51947 yesterday so I have just about 24hrs. experience with this gun and it's my first RIA. From reading the other thread the OP is talking about I leaned a few things and tried a few things with spare parts I had laying around. First I disassembled the gun completely and wiped it down, these things have more oil in them than my Tundra... A SVI interchangeable trigger slipped right in, there was both vertical and horizontal play in it but this trigger has been used in a couple of other STI's so I don't know how a new one would fit up. Then started "adjusting" (tweaking and bending) the sear spring and got the trigger pull down to around 2.5lbs with no hammer follow at all. The trigger felt great until i put the grips back on and then it would not fall. The back corners of the trigger bow were contacting the inside of the grip panels. I locked them gently in my "vise"(held in hand) and took a bit off with an "endmill" (Orange grinder wheel in Dremel). Removed some from the inside of the grip, which there is not a whole lot to begin with and then took some off the corners of the bow. The hammer was able to fall, reset and repeat. There was not a lot of overtravel though. I put a light recoil master in it just to see if it fit ok and it dropped right in. Will have to shoot it with and without to see which way I like more. Magazines... I tried a 122mm SVI, a 140 SVI(Old Style) and a 140 STI. All magazines seated, dropped free and hand cycled ammunition with no problem with the stock mag release, 147 grain Bear Creek TC's at 1.160OAL. Stock Mag... 122mm SVI Mag... 140mm SVI Mag... 140mm STI Mag Overall so far I am really impressed with this firearm. The fit and finish is great. No slop in the barrel, no rattle in the gun, all the features that are included with this for the price... From some of the posts I read I did not think it was going to be a ramped barrel but it is, C/P cut. I think I paid $665 delivered, a steal for what you get IMHO. I have not shot it yet, range is closed all weekend but am going to stop by range on Monday Night and run some rounds through it. Hope some of this helps. Doug
  6. Uh I would think so, I run 147gr Bear Creeks at.... And they seat like this... Just a few spares I have floating around that were replaced with KKM's. Have you checked everything else, crimp, resize etc.... Anyway, good luck and if you need a replacement 5" pro barrel, well I know a guy;) Doug
  7. "looks great. Might have to try." I did, came out great!! To the OP, Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.... Inside... Outside.. Doug
  8. 9L should work in the pro 5". I like the thumb drive for good level II retention and a simple set screw, screwed in with the thumb drive pressed in to make it a no retention holster. Just my opinion. Doug
  9. +2 on bullseye... Go get yourself an 8lb jug of it... They only sell them off the backs of unicorns at this time[emoji16][emoji22]
  10. I just got the new magnetic one about two weeks ago. Had to do a little filing as the trigger guard was tight. I think it may have had to do with my grip being painted. Love the lock and how secure it feels in holster. I like the release of the gun better during the draw on my Limcat but, I may just need to sand a little more material off on the DAA. ttolliver, good tip on the set screws, I wondered about the one and only set screw holding the holster body to the bar.
  11. Gun oil fill ports[emoji56]
  12. If it's the one/type I remember, the set screw in front could damage checkering, just FYI
  13. 147gr. Bear Creaks with 3.0gr Bullseye at 1.160 out of my KKM 5" M&P pro knocks over full size poppers at 50yds all day long, you know, after they get there finally. I'm sure you'll be fine.
  14. Lol, Dan I found my carver comp in the bottom of my range bag last night, we could have screwed it on and tried it yesterday when you shot mine... DOH!!
  15. Sorry Ken, my sarcasm was not very clear;). The QP'ing is awesome!! Gun snaps right back down, tracks great, very quick recovery etc... Would highly recommend, just not to anyone I have to compete against is what I was saying;)
  16. Ok, just got my slide and barrel back from Magna port, having it quadra ported... No one in Oregon or anyone who is going to come to Oregon to compete should ever have this done, it's really really terrible... [emoji57]
  17. I use used factory captured Glock springs popped off the plastic rod on a turned down tungsten rod in my Pro's. We change them out every couple of years at work and I end up w a lifetime supply;). Work great and I get them just broken in?

    Barrels

    I just took delivery of my 3rd KKM barrel to replace the stock one in my backup production gun and shoot 147 bear creeks in all of them and they all shoot 2" at 20yds if I do my part
  19. I have shot Bear Creek 150gr .358 RN through my stock barrel, accuracy was soso, so I went back to the .356 147 BC. My gunsmith was shooting the 150 .358 out of his w a Storm Lake and getting very good accuracy, like 2.5" at 25yds. He uses 3.0 of bullseye and getting 130pf, very soft shooting. I'm guessing the slower twist of the KKM would like them too. I'm going to run them in my unicorn when it shows up(S&W 929). Doug
  20. Yep just got mine, old pre dot:(
  21. Stealthy, what is the length, in .001 if possible, of one of the trapezoidal cuts on the slide. Thanks, Doug
  22. Received mine today, fit is great, slid right in, no drag when pushing it or on mags, feels great can get to it without adjusting grip now, I have the small brass SSS magwell and does not touch table when laying flat, very happy. Ordered it Friday showed up monday[emoji106]
  23. Now we just need to do a comparison on the 1 dot bbl vs. the 2 dot bbl and see which machine makes a better bbl. [emoji12] I'm kidding! Thanks for the info Ryan. I'll post what they are when I get mine, it's already shipped should be here tue or wed. Doug
  24. Me too, thanks for the heads up.[emoji106]
