  1. I put a TTI kit in with a 5# striker spring and am pretty happy with the trigger. It's around 4.25# but smooth, and pops any primers I want to use.

    I agree with this. I use VV N320 at 3.1gr, 1.135" OAL, 145gr round nose bayou bullet. Made 131 PF at the last major I shot. Soft, accurate and clean.
  3. The gen5 definitely helps relieve issues with "Glock knuckle." The G19 sized guns were always the worst for this for me, but a gen5 19 doesn't cause the issue at all.
  4. I prefer a slight wall over a rolling break. I have a TTI kit in my production gun right now and it's decent, but I haven't done a lot of experimentation with different connectors.
  5. I use CCI primers in my reloads and Winchester primers in factory ammo. I use a 4.5# striker spring with a Jager lightened/extended tip striker and have never had a light primer hit. I experimented briefly with a 4.0# striker spring and the Jager striker was still good to go, but I had several light hits with the stock striker (approx one-two per 100 rounds). I ultimately settled on the setup mentioned above for the peace of mind over the 4.0# spring.
  6. I think shooters get a false sense of confidence shooting 1911/2011 triggers slow fire with no time pressure, where it's much easier to shoot nice tight groups than stock Glock triggers. When you start to push things to max speed on drills like el pres, bill drills from 7-25 yds, accelerator drill, blake drills, etc I don't think the trigger makes a difference in the amount of A/C/D hits you get. That's why most people don't see an actual bump in match performance when they switch from Glocks to STI's.
  7. That was the original specs, but they changed around 2011-2012 to the ramped Springfield barrel due to the nowlin barrels being prone to splitting. I've witnessed 3 pros with the old style barrel split like this and render the guns completely useless. I'm just curious why they would have changed back to to the original style.
  8. Interesting, thanks for the pic. I'll upload one for comparison of the ramped barrel on mine which was finished approximately last winter (early 2015). This would be a major change, and I wonder if it coincides with the end of the FBI contract.
  9. This is new from the factory or new to you from someone else? My last Pro was in the CRG45XX range of serial numbers and has the ramped barrel. The new production guns all have ramped barrels and have for quite some time. All of the new off the line pros i've handled in the last 2 years (~20ish) have had the ramped barrel. What is the serial # on yours?
  10. I'd recommend replacing your mag release spring annually. I had a spring develop a slight bend in it after a pretty high-volume training year and mags started dropping out of the gun under recoil. I changed the spring out and the problem went away immediately.
  11. Actually, both but I guess, a bit more for sport. Thanks. The only single stack 1911s I've ever owned that would shoot ball ammo and hollow point duty ammo without having to tinker with mag springs (to be 100% reliable with both) was a Springfield TRP and a Wilson Combat Professional. Both with non-ramped barrels. I have a newer model Springfield Pro with a ramped barrel and it has no issues feeding swc's, jhp's, or ball ammo. It was my understanding that all of the Pros (certainly the 5-6 I've seen) all have two piece feed ramps. What do you mean by 2 piece? The current production Pros have a ramped Springfield barrel. The original Pros had a throated Nowlin barrel and the feed ramp was on the frame (i.e. the more traditional 1911 design). The Nowlin barrels had issues cracking and Springfield made the design change a few years back.

  13. I prefer having a frame weight on my glock whether shooting major or minor. It does make the recoil impulse more "dull." The bigger advantage to me is that it improves the consistency of my transitions. You may be able to drive a lighter gun faster between targets, but in my experience I can stop a heavier gun where I want to easier with excessive sight movement.
  14. Anyone figure out what time registration will be open on Saturday yet? I emailed USPSA HQ and the response I got was that they don't know.
  15. I'm moving to Savannah, Ga in the near future and looking for the closest matches as well as a good range/club to join for practicing. So far, I've seen the match in Brunswick, GA and one near Charleston, SC. Are there any others within easy driving distance (2hrs or less)? Also, I am looking for a range that I can join that allows uspsa style practice with freestyle bays where I can setup my own targets and doesnt have rules restricting movement, drawing, etc, preferably within 30-45 minutes if possible. Any recommendations? Thanks!
