  1. Thanks for posting, some bad-looking Infinity's. I'm going to stick with the stainless finish option. I wasn't aware that you could polish hard chrome to that degree, that's pretty wild. Not too many CrN guns out there I see?
  2. I had to do the same thing on my Limited, as the hole in the dovetail was MUCH larger than the tiny Dawson set screw. I flattened a small piece of shotshell shot, matched it to the size of the hole, and pressed it into place. Then the Dawson set screw had something to bite into. In the dovetail I applied Loctite 609 retaining compound, which is meant to glue sleeves and bearings in place. It holds far better than blue Loctite.
  3. Awesome Infinity pistols, thanks for posting! I've ordered a stainless finish gun which looks similar to this A satin stainless finish appears to be a more ghosted out silver finish in the grip, serrations, and a satin finish on the accents If you have a Infinicoat CrN finish, or a regular stainless gun, please post them up! I would like to see some real world photos. Thanks!
  4. I've just placed my 1st order with Infinity for a 5 inch sight tracker in stainless steel (not satin ss). I was having difficulty deciding between the CrN Infinicoat finish and the regular stainless finish purely based on looks. CrN looks very different in studio photos vs. photos with real world lighting. I was very much after the amazing look of the polished magwell, grip safety, thumb safeties, etc. that the stainless guns offer. Casey at SVI said if I went with CrN, the accents would looks similar, but not as mirror polished looking as the stainless. If you have either a non-satin stainless gun, or a CrN gun, could you post a photo of it please? And please indicate what finish you have. Thanks!!
  5. I'm right handed and the wide thumb safety on my Limited digs into my support hand thumb knuckle while shooting. I already bobbed the front 90 degree corner of the safety to a 45, and generously beveled the entire sharp bottom edge of the safety with a needle file. It still digs into my knuckle while shooting with a good high support hand grip. I'd like to have my safety reshaped similar to the next few photos. This is Tony Pignato's Limited. He told me he did it on a grinder wheel. I don't trust myself to not slip or seriously botch the job on a grinder wheel. Could you guys recommend someone I could send my safety to, to have done? Would J&L gunsmithing be able to do this mod for me? Thanks. upload your photo
  6. That's exactly how mine was. You should be good to go then with the lead shot. I was able to fit it to the diameter of the hole and then shave the thickness of it so that it sat just below flush. I was then able to tap in the new Dawson sight right over the top of it with no interference.
  7. I haven't had a problem since I installed the little lead disc. The key is to have a little bit of metal on the bottom of the hole in the slide to support the lead disc. Did yours make a clean even hole, or do you still have some metal around the perimeter of the hole where the screw punched through? After flattening the lead BB, try to fit it to the hole as closely as possible. Best of luck.
  8. I use the 100 round Shockbottle case gauges. Recently I found a couple of completed rounds that were standing obviously proud of the rest. Upon closer inspection, both cases had strange looking cracks in the case web area. There was a visible ring all the way around the inside as well. I can almost guarantee that firing these rounds would have resulted in a rupture or case head separation had I not case gauged them an simply assumed they were good. That taught me a good lesson that the gauge can catch such anomalies. It also is great for those pesky .380 cases that sneak their way in my press from time to time.
  9. Henning makes thin aluminum grips specifically for those wanting to cover with grip tape: http://henningshop.com/products/tanfoglio-matchsteel-smooth-grip-special-deal
  10. My Elite Limited will "auto forward" the slide if I slam the mag in with authority. I can reproduce it 100% of the time which is kind of cool actually. If I seat the mag normally, the slide will not auto forward. I first noticed this when I changed from the factory 10lb recoil spring to a Wolff 8lb spring. Naturally it is easier to bump the slide off the slide stop notch when there is less tension holding it there from the recoil spring. My Beretta 92G Elite II also started auto forwarding when I switched to a Wolff 9lb recoil spring. It's nothing to be concerned about, and actually makes slide lock reloads more efficient.
  11. Nice pictures. I couldn't help but to notice that your new Stock 2 has the same abrasion mark under the beavertail as my Limited, straight out of the box. It kinda bugged me to see that on a brand new gun. Like how does such a mark even happen in that area?
  12. The Ceramic finish they mention on the Xtreme's...is it similar to an IonBond coating or is it more paint-like similar to Cerakote?
  13. Thanks very much for the feedback. The Double Alpha rest does look nice with its full adjustability, but I can see how the slide shield would get in your way when racking from the front. Probably best to use that one on an open gun only. I think I may try the IPSC AlexRest. Again, I appreciate the replies.
  14. What's your favorite thumb rest for your Limited? Does it make front cocking the gun difficult? So far I like the factory Gold Team thumb rest as it looks minimalist. The IPSC Alex rest looks very nice too. Please post pics if you can too, thanks.
  15. Just an update, but I shot around 200 rounds through mine yesterday with the new sight and it hasn't moved a bit. When I tapped the sight in with a rubber hammer, I noticed it shaved off a couple fine slivers of metal off each side of the sight as it went in. I wasn't even tapping on it all that hard either, but I bet that is helping the sight stay put that much more. It didn't seem to bother the dovetail in the slide one bit. I've read of similar experiences here from other members as well. The Dawson sight dovetail measured exactly the same as the factory Tanfoglio sight using my digital calipers, so I didn't think fitting would be necessary. Looks like just some minor sanding like IronArcher did is all that would be needed.
