  1. I sent my mags to Bevin a few years ago. I think it was $10 per mag and I added his springs and followers that where around $16. Quick turnaround. CZ85 is right, you will eventually need to tune the mags. Trust us!!!
  2. After my class with Ben, I told my buddy and fellow Stoeger classmate that I should have taken the money I spent on class and bought a nice box of cigars and a good bottle of bourbon. And I would have enjoyed the cigars and liquor and I would still have the illusion that I was good shooter.

    LOK Grips for Czechmate

    I think I might try the thin Bogies. Did the palm swell bogies from your TSO fit the Czechmate well?

    LOK Grips for Czechmate

    How hard are they to trim and fit to the Czechmate? What do you use to cut them?

    LOK Grips for Czechmate

    As much as I like the palm swell of the stock SP-01 grips, I suspected the LOK palm swells might be too thick for me. Have you ever tried the standard width from LOK?

    LOK Grips for Czechmate

    I am looking to try some LOK grips on my czechmate. I know I want the Bogies but I am looking for opinions about getting the thin, standard or Palm swells. I like the stock rubber grips on my SP-01 so I am leaning towards the palm swells. However I have medium to large hands and I am not sure if the palm swells on the larger frame czechmate might make reaching the trigger difficult.
  7. If you get the one from SVI, it is the same width of the sight tracker barrel. It took me about 30 min but I went slow. I have installed 4-5 Dawson sights. Just go to the Dawson website and watch his install video. You need an non marring punch, small hammer, small triangle file, vise, vise blocks and I use tape to cover things I don't want scratched. Go slow taking off material because you cant put it back on. Oh and some red loctite.
  8. That's what I ended up doing. However, as I wrote before, I was looking for a longer fiber optic sight to allow more light and a brighter front sight.
  9. When the original M&P first came out, I bought a 5" Pro. I kept getting light strikes. S&W sent me a new striker assembly twice. I still got light strikes. I then sent the gun to S&W and when it returned it stating they installed a new striker assembly. Still got light strikes. While I was disassembling the pistol, the yellow take down tap fell out of the gun. I did not reinstall it, but after that no more light strikes. I can only guess, maybe the take down tab was not installed properly and changing the angle of the sear somehow, causing the striker to drag and lose strength.
  10. I read on the SV website, the width of the sight base is .420 to match the width of the hybrid barrel. I suppose I could call Dawson and they could make me one, but I think I'll just order the exact replacement from SV. I had a heck of a time removing the broken sight. Thanks guys.
  11. I was practicing with my SVI Sight Tracker today. The front sight broke where the rear portion of the sight holds the fiber optic rod. Is the island barrel different from a regular slide in that the front sight is made different for the two. Since I have to replace the front sight, I would rather get one that is longer (has a longer fiber optic tube than the SVI). I find that the SVI front fiber optic rod was OK when first installed but because it is so short, the rod gets dirty faster and it gets dimmer faster. Would a Dawson work or maybe a Manny FireDot?
  12. Need a little more info. Is it factory ammo or reloads? What does the primer look like on the unfired extracted round. Is it a solid primer indentation or a light strike?
  13. Bulldog, I routinely had to fire the show clear round out of the rifle with the KVP barrel. I got good at asking the RO if they had my time recorded. By buying the JP barrel on the Black Friday sale, I actually only spent about another $40 more for the barrel than buying the reamer, cutting fluid and handle.
  14. A couple years back I had the KVP light barrel. I liked it but it needed to be reamed or I would have to load very short. I priced out a reamer, handle and cutting fluid on Brownells. At about the same time JP Rifles was having a Black Friday sale. I was able to pick up one of their match 9mm barrels for just a few dollars more than the stuff I needed from Brownells. I don't remember exactly but I think I got the barrel for less than $160 delivered. Its been a great barrell.
