  1. That is a very good deal. Thanks for the heads up!
  2. Does anyone with one of these also have a Glock 20? Can you try a G20 mag in the lower? With the advent of the .40 Guard I’m liking the idea of having both uppers on the large frame lower, and running my long-loaded Limited ammo from G20 magazines. I checked with CMMG though, and was told that G20 magazines won’t fit in the lower because they’re bigger than .45 magazines. Seems wrong to me but I don’t own any to check.
  3. Thread revival. I’m interested in trying a .45, just for fun. Does anyone know if you really need the Guard lower, or would a QC10 lower work for .45? Theres one locally available for a good price, and stripped Guard lowers are hard to find and more expensive.
  4. Local shop has 2 P10F OR in stock. $549. Really tempted.
  5. I saw the one in the classifieds. I kind of want it but can’t really figure out why.
  6. Depends if you count labor. If the frame is fitted to a slide and barrel then it seems better to risk the grip than a well-fitted gun.
  7. No, I haven’t heard of an STI galling. I don’t think they make stainless guns. That does look pretty rough though. Maybe some grit got in there somehow? Do you keep it well lubed? Looks pretty dry now, but I expect you cleaned it for the picture.
  8. Mil spec upper works fine. I don’t know about the lower. I know Colt style lowers hold the magazine too high to be used with a Guard bolt without modification. If you end up needing to enlarge the ejection port, that’s easily done.
  9. My preferences? Dawson no gap magwell, Dawson 0.100” fiber front, VZ grips (I think they’re Diamondbacks) with thumb relief cut, 14# recoil spring. I prefer an extended mag release but no button. Not really happy with the Wilson one piece guide rod I’m using now, I think I’d go with the GI if I replace it. Had this one for a long time though.
  10. Another Mobil 1 synthetic vote, OW20 or 5W20. Gear lube is pretty smelly. Is that really what Lucas Extreme is?
  11. Probably best to send them back. I have a couple dozen of them, never an issue.
  12. I’ve owned two Trophy Matches and one PM 9. Happy with the TMs but more so with the Dan Wesson. I don’t think either is a bad choice.
