    ZEV OZ9

    Ok, i stand corrected then. That's way better than my LEO price quoted from STI and just slightly more than the ZEV guns.

    Red dot for G17

    His wording was confusing. I don't really think we need any evidence to prove that there is a definite benefit to the SRO's larger window versus the RMR. The key is to focus on what the end user really needs. Would I carry the SRO on duty, hmmm, probably. Is it as durable as the RMR? No, its not but the end user needs to define his standard, not the manufacturer that is scrambling around trying to keep their products relevant and clearly defined so they can continue selling them en masse. If i was deploying over sea's, id want an RMR as that is an entirely different ball of wax.

    How does that prove its FOR competitive use? lol. Its a good optic for competitive use no doubt but so long as the electronics are sound, the same advantages of the optic translate over to CCW provided you're ok with the larger form factor and the fact that you wont be able to hammer nails with it...

    You are absolutely correct. However, Trijicon is trying not to step on their own dicks. They want an obvious delineation between products so that people will buy according to category. Most people dont come to forums and ask questions or do much thinking for themselves. They walk into a gun store, buy their new red dot ready pistol and ask what they need for combat. The guy behind the counter, who served sixteen tours in OIF, Vietnam and WWII will immediately tell them because of his two minutes of training and experience that the Trijicon RMR is what that person needs. For the average concealed carry user that wants to pull double duty and shoot some matches with their carry gun and also have fun at the range, the SRO is without a doubt, ready for that.

    ZEV OZ9

    Er... Are you aware that there is a significant discount on OZ9's for LEO's? The OZ9 after discount is four hundred dollars less than the STI unless you have a different discount pathway. Thanks for the answers to my above questions bud!

    Holy Mall Ninja batman... For concealed carry and defensive use the SRO is just fine. For duty use, the SRO is arguably sub optimal but that still is a debatable point.

    ZEV OZ9

    I have plenty of Glocks that have wear marks on the top of the slides from the barrel hood. Can you give us some more info about your co-worker if you have it? Was he firing a steady diet of 124 grain nato rounds or reloaded cloud puffs? Total round counts on the guns? I THINK that this may be the only report of a catastrophic failure of an OZ9 like that. Im super curious to hear more. Also, that statement above is a little disingenuous for those of us that get discounts. After the discount, the zev OZ9 pistol is significantly cheaper than the STI.

    ZEV OZ9

    Is this a recall specific to that trigger, or specific to the OZ9 WITH that trigger? I have several of their older flat faced triggers that have been 100% reliable but id like more info on that recall if you have anything to share.
  9. I think they started that on PF.com. It's not a bad naming convention. Makes life pretty simple.
  10. My experiences with LW are limited to years ago when their QC on alot of their products was not all that great. I have no experience with their newer stuff. I'm not buying this to "get tighter groups" or "better accuracy" like most people are. I started the thread because im simply curious as to who makes a g34.5 barrel since I need to buy one to complete my upper. The factory barrels have been more than accurate enough for me but the current pricing that im seeing leaves the LW, the KKM and the Factory barrel essentially the same price. I'm just curious as to what my options are.
  11. Hey guys! I've always been a factory barrel kinda guy but im building a g34 gen 5 upper and since I need to buy a barrel for it I figured why the heck not, lets see what's out there and maybe get some bling. So far ive come across Zev and KKM. Does anyone else make a gen 5 barrel for the 34? I think Lone wolf also makes an XXL barrel or something like that but ive never been a huge fan of LW.

    Zev Optimized Barrels

    Ugh, The LCI is going to be a no go.
  13. Gen 4 RSA's will work in Gen 5 19's. Gen 5 17's and 34's use a longer guide rod that is unique to the gen 5 platform. Does that clarify?
  14. Question for the guys that are saying they want one. Im ALL for just buying guns because you want it. However, at the current state of my life, newly married, new house, trying to do the right thing financially etc, I find myself justifying purchases of firearms based upon some perceived "need" or use category. For those of you that want this pistol. What do you intend to do with it? I dont really see this out classing a 2011 in limited. I do see it as another option which is kinda cool but man, there's a HUGE uphill battle there considering how effective the 2011 is at this point. I see the bonus in this pistol as being its mags that wont require tuning. For the compact variant, its not my cup of tea as i dont prefer to carry steel firearms. Perhaps there will be an alloy frame down the road but for now, we are going with what we know in that its a steel frame. So, once again, im not sure what the point of the compact pistol will be. If YOU like to carry steel guns, rock on brothers but the real question that I have is does DW think that there's enough market demand for an oddball non 1911 steel carry gun?? I love new firearms and im glad to see this come, im just scratching my head slightly.
  15. The ergo's are quite good. The overall package that is offered is quite good, ie nice grip angle decent texture, excellent serrations fore and aft. The problem lies in the trigger. Its garbage, like, pure garbage. Its just plain bad. After a bazillion rounds (rentals) the triggers tend to clean up a bit but they're still heavy. Couple this with almost no aftermarket support (as you mentioned) and we are left with a platform that is hard to set up for gun games. To the best of my knowledge no one even makes a recoil rod so that we can tune the recoil impulse to our ammo. THAT right there is a MAJOR reason for me why im hesitant to put down money on one.
