  1. Do slides interchange on steel and polymer framed guns?
  2. I can't get over the front/back strap design of the IFG Stock I. If they had kept the grip from the Stock 2/3/LimPro, I think it'd be a hit.
  3. Has anyone tried creating a G19X style Tanfo? I think it would be neat for a carry gun. For appendix carry, the slide seems like it would be more out of the way. And from a gun familiarity standpoint, I'm already shooting a large frame Tanfo, not a whole lot really changes. I would just have the front of the slide milled to accept a common front sight replacement (Tanfo if possible). I think the Henning Battlehook rear sight fits the dovetail on this one. It seems doable as long as the parts on EAA's website are for large frame guns. The other option might be to get a .38 Super slide and have a longer large frame 9mm barrel cut down?
  4. I use Stock 3s and never win. Do I get my money back? Honestly, I don't think it matters too much. Just pick one that fits the division(s) you want to shoot. The Stock 2 is only legal for USPSA. I'd say the Lim Pro is the most versatile if you want to shoot multiple sports/divisions. Conversion slides and barrels are also less expensive and more available from EAA. USPSA/IPSC Production USPSA Limited or IPSC Standard with a .40 slide, magwell, and 140mm or 126mm extensions USPSA CO with or without slide milling IPSC PO with dovetail mount IDPA SSP IDPA ESP with a magwell IDPA CDP with a .45 slide All 3-gun divisions if accuracy by volume is your thing
  5. I just happened to be on the Tanfoglio website on noticed this gun in their catalog. Did they ever announce this model coming to the US?
  6. Update: Replaced the hammer spring with another EGD Medium and it flawlessly ignited Magtech for 350 rounds. Let's see how long it lasts...
  7. I just got my other S3X back from EAA so I'm going to shoot some ammo through it and see what happens. It never had ignition issues before and my ammo behaves exactly the same with the plunk test. It had the same ignition parts when I sent it in but when I got it back, it came with a different firing pin and cut firing pin spring. *shrug*
  8. I don't see any chamber reamers on their site. I can only find the service to have a barrel reamed. Do you have a link for the blind? I'm not sure if I'll have time to go to the range and do that before the Patriot 20% sale is over. I'm about ready to throw in a Titan hammer and see what happens lol. I don't keep spent brass but going off memory, I don't recall primer strikes being noticeably off-center.
  9. I loctited mine and it has been in the same position since I got the gun. I’ll take it out and see if anything changes. I reinstalled the FP block and used a ballpoint pen with the ballpoint facing the firing pin. The pen flies higher in SA than DA, but SA is where I’m getting all of my light strikes with live ammo. I even took my finger off the trigger as fast as possible to simulate rapid fire, and the pen launches equally as high. If I have to ream the barrel, is there a documented amount? I have 2 of these guns and there’s a good chance I’ll get more Tanfos for CO, so it’ll be worth getting a chamber reamer.
  10. Thing is... the ammo that spins freely is having problems. The ammo that doesn’t spin freely has been 100%.
  11. I did the barrel plunk test with S&B 115gr FMJ and it spins freely. American Eagle 147gr AE9FP does not spin freely. How far is it supposed to stick out? The firing pin looks straight.
  12. I will have to give that a go tonight. I've never cleaned the barrel over its course of 5000 rounds. We looked at it briefly and it seemed straight to the naked eye. I'll have to roll it on a flat surface tonight to see if anything looks funny. Strangely enough, my other S3X's firing pin was bent all to hell and still functioned. It's been at EAA under repair since January for different issues.
  13. How would I test the ammo in the barrel? ETA: Tanfoglio just informed me that the Unica firing pin is the same length as the Xtreme firing pin. The only difference is the coating if anyone was wondering.
  14. I have an S3 Xtreme that comes with a Delta hammer, EGD Xtreme Firing Pin, and Medium 15.5# EGD hammer spring. At about 1000 rounds in, I started getting light strikes. I'm at about 5000 rounds in now and it has progressively gotten worse in the last month. During my most recent class, I had 12 light strikes over the course of 1600 rounds. All of my light strikes were in Single Action, oddly enough. The ammo I use is all factory Federal, Fiocchi, CCI Blazer, Magtech, S&B, or Winchester. Everything has had light strikes so far except Federal and Fiocchi. I have tried the following to no avail: Cleaning the FP channel Light and Medium Xtreme FP springs Removing the FP block per the instructor just to see if it was dragging on the firing pin I figured the gun would work with most factory ammo in factory configuration, but that doesn't seem to be the case. I want to be able to shoot USPSA and IPSC with the same guns, so that leaves me only a couple of options: Longer firing pin. Is the Unica firing pin longer than the Xtreme firing pin? This would be the easiest and least expensive option if it works. Heavier hammer. Install the Titan hammer and hope primers pop reliably. Heavier hammer spring. The trigger is a little over 8# in DA, and I really don't want to make it any heavier. If someone can confirm that the Unica firing pin is longer, that may be the answer. Is there anything else I should be looking at? I contacted Tanfoglio and they confirmed that the Unica and Xtreme firing pin are the same dimensions. The only difference is the coating.
  15. Wow, my viewpoint on guns has totally changed nearly 2 years after the original post. I have my A card now and I believe that if you know how to shoot, you know how to shoot. If you have a gun you thoroughly enjoy shooting, you are more likely to practice with it. I shot my Accu Shadow until I found some ergonomic annoyances with my hand size/shape. I've switched to a Stock III Xtreme which fits me better and I really love shooting it. If I get annoyed with it and find something I enjoy more, I'll just switch and keep practicing. My new advice would be to just buy the most baller gun you can afford for your division and enjoy shooting it.
