    Lok Grips - Thin Bogies or Thin Full Checkered? Thoughts?

    Bogies are more grippy. The full checkered are nothing to scoff at, but the quality of your skin will determine which is preferable.

    Is Single Stack Dead?

    I think it is more of a recreational division now. There are certainly serious competitors, but I think more people try it out for a change of pace. It’s been the most rewarding division that I’ve shot, but there is a lot to be said regarding having a gun in .40S&W that is set up to your liking. Lots of trial and error, and very few options for guns chambered in .40S&W. SS minor is weak. Not sure why it is even an option. It’s disgusting.

    reduce OAL or throat barrel

    Cut the chamber/leade. You might think about buying a finishing reamer for a 9mm chamber, or pooling with other shooters to buy one of those and a throating reamer. Short leades are extremely common, TOO COMMON, with 9mm firearms, and excessively tight chambers and short leades are relatively common in PCC barrels. Finishing reamers run $75. Cutting with a finishing reamer is a fast and easy job that can be done with a tap wrench and plenty of oil.

    1911 Grips

    Hogue thick grips. Very good option.

    EGW 2011 magwell won’t fit any grips

    All the Dawson and STI products work. I have 3 2011 grip modules, all made by STI. Probably other vendors aside from EGW would work also.

    EGW 2011 magwell won’t fit any grips

    It is clearly not a drop in part. My goal is the same as Vizorn’s goal, not to feel the magwell. Maybe I’ll throw it in the trash where it belongs.
  8. I picked up an EGW magwell a few months ago, and tried installing it recently. It did not fit the 2011 grip in question, so I tried it on my other two and it also won’t fit them either. All are STI grips. The back of the magwell will not fit over the mainspring housing area; it stops at the portion on either side of the MSH slot. Looks like the only way it will fit is with material removal. Anyone else had this problem? This magwell: http://www.egwguns.com/1911-parts/sti-hi-cap-mag-well-black/

    Help me develope a dry fire routine

    Do everything every session. Drawing static, drawing on the move, SH/WH, short transitions, wide transitions, shooting on the move, static reloads, one-step reloads, running reloads, uprange movement. All dry fire. At least 15 minutes. Maybe ONLY 15 minutes per day, but never less. As a new person to training, it will be helpful to focus more on draws and reloads for a few weeks.

    Which 1911

    Sig Traditional Match Elite .40S&W
  12. Titegroup, cheap, available everywhere, consistent, low ES and SD, low charge weight per power factor. King of powders.
  13. I got a case of the Federal Syntech Action Pistol 9mm recently, and it is pretty excellent in every gun so far. Prod, PCC, carry gun. Going to try it in a 9mm 2011 next week. Just testing it’s viability for Nats. The .40 stuff is great, too.

    Impossible Mag Release

    Check the fit/condition on the release lock. A lot of them are garbage. You can also order multiple spring rates for the mag catch.
