  1. Not sure if this is the problem; Previous versions of Chrome blocked mixed content (HTTP: web sites being linked from HTTPS: websites) but showed a shield icon on the far right of the search bar. That icon no longer shows on the latest releases of Chrome. I don't use Chrome (I try to avoid any product owned by Google), but I suspect that there must be some way to disable this. I do see where your page tries to pull data from external sites… you may want to check to see if they have the same function available from an https address. ie. change the http to https on your web-page for external sites and see if that resolves the problem
  2. Not showing up as an option... on other forums I use the Like option was also enabled. Not sure if that’s the problem.
  3. Try polishing the safety plunger in the slide, the trigger bar pushes this up, use a light grease on there too.
  4. I had issues with the factory spring, infrequent malfunctions. That’s why I switched to a lighter spring.
  5. I found it on the IPSC Global Village...
  6. The factory recoil spring is designed to handle +P ammo, it is 17lb. I am running 13lb @ 132PF. OAL will depend on bullet profile, what bullets are you using? With SNS I am at 1.10, with Gallant you can go longer due to the narrow ogive.
  7. From the factory, the trigger has a safety bar. Reading appendices D4 and D7 item 22.1 would seem to suggest that replacing the original trigger with this one would violate the rules.
  8. https://www.smith-wesson.com/mp15-22-consumer-safety-alert IMPORTANT! M&P15-22 CONSUMER SAFETY ALERT AND INSPECTION PROCEDURE DESCRIPTION - Please Read This If You Have A M&P15-22 Rimfire Firearm. PRODUCT AFFECTED: ALL models of M&P15-22 rifles and pistols manufactured before February 1, 2019. STOP USING YOUR M&P15-22 UNTIL IT HAS BEEN INSPECTED AND YOUR BOLT REPLACED (IF NECESSARY). Smith & Wesson has identified two M&P15-22 firearms from recent production on which the breech face counter bore depth was not within manufacturing specification. In those firearms, the lack of depth may allow the bolt, upon closing, to crush the rim of the case, causing the round to fire, cycling the bolt, and potentially resulting in multiple discharges without depressing the trigger. This issue can occur in the following two scenarios: 1) With a loaded magazine in the firearm and the bolt locked to the rear, depressing the bolt release to allow the bolt to drop freely may ignite the round as the bolt closes without engaging the trigger and with the safety selector in either the safe or the fire position, and may also result in multiple discharges. 2) With a loaded magazine in the firearm, bolt in the closed position and a round in the chamber and the safety selector in the fire position, depressing the trigger will cause the round to fire normally, however as the bolt cycles, the next round may be ignited by the bolt crushing the rim of the case as it closes, causing multiple discharges. We believe that these are isolated incidents, however, any unintended discharge of a firearm has the potential to cause injury. Therefore, we have developed this inspection procedure to ensure that all products in the field are safe to use. We are asking customers to perform the following procedure and to refrain from using their M&P15-22 until the bolt has been inspected and replaced as necessary. DESCRIPTION OF THE PRODUCT INVOLVED: The out of specification condition has been found only in bolts that were recently manufactured. While our investigation suggests that the incidents are isolated, we have established this inspection procedure as a precautionary matter to ensure that all M&P15-22 firearms in service meet our design specifications. We are asking consumers of all M&P15-22 firearms manufactured before February 1, 2019 to inspect their bolt for this condition. REMEDY/ACTION TO BE TAKEN: The bolt from your M&P15-22 must be inspected to determine whether it exhibits the condition identified in this notice. To determine whether your firearm is affected by this condition, please inspect your firearm by following the inspection instructions provided here.
  9. The stainless steel guide rod won’t work in the SF unless you drill a small hole in the back of it, see the other thread about the SF for details. Regarding the brass shavings; how many rounds are you putting in the magazine. If you’re loading 23 then it may be too tight for the steel frame as the top round pushes too hard against the slide.
  10. Any food you eat at the indoor range will be contaminated with lead particles. Don’t do that. Steps 1-5 will help, probably a lot.
  11. Could you buy a different slide release that had a thumb rest on it, then swap it out when shooting production?
  12. I used to shoot at an indoor range twice a week back in the UK. I recall an article somewhere about safe practices for indoor ranges. From memory; Don’t eat or drink or smoke at the range. Wash hands before leaving (there are wipes that will remove lead etc). Go straight home. Wash clothes (don’t mix with other clothes) to remove lead. Shower and wash hair. If you don’t do all the above then you are breathing in or ingesting lead until you do all of the above. For example, if you don’t wash your hair then it transfers to your pillow overnight and you breathe it in all night.
  13. Video clip, seems to have a similar reset to the Apex but without the trigger safety.
