  1. Ive posted a detailed write up about it here: If you want to ensure its a spring issue and not a timing issue, take out the striker block. Go run the gun without it and see if the issue persists. If it does, try a 13lb recoil spring and see if it helps. If it doesn't, you've likely got yourself a timing issue, refer to link above and adjust trigger bar loop. Feel to reach out via message if you need anything.
  2. Hey guys, my local USPSA club has really hard/compacted dirt in almost every bay. I've recently switched to the Solomon Speedcross 4 Forces which helped with traction. I'd like to take the traction to the next level and wanted to see what you guys would recommend for really hard dirt ranges. Im open to everything thats not overly clunky/bulky. Was thinking something with metal spikes, maybe baseball cleats or track spikes with metal dirt spikes? https://www.underarmour.com/en-us/mens-ua-harper-3-mid-st-baseball-cleats/pcid3020585?scid=scplp3020585-001-8&sc_intid=3020585-001-8&cid=PLA|US|B|GGL|DES|SiC|ROAS|||Outlet|Product|&gclid=EAIaIQobChMIhdCCuqjD5gIVjONkCh3dWQ9OEAYYASABEgJjFfD_BwE
  3. Springer makes great products, and the combo they have will work flawlessly. The basepads are just more work to take off compared to TTI. The 140mm and 170mm extensions use an allen-key/set screw to secure the basepad to the magazine. That could get annoying really quickly if you clean your mags every-time they hit the deck. Their .25" basepads use the standard removal method.
  4. Make sure you are checking compatibility with the basepad/magwell combo you choose. A year or two ago, the Springer magwells with TTI basepads worked great. Had that combo for years. Now they do not. It seems TTI has slightly changed the design on the basepads. If you buy this combo in 2019 w/ new components, know you will have to shave off metal on one of the components. Its a shame because I feel those are the best respective magwell/basepad out for the M&P. Springer basepad w/ Springer magwell work.
  5. Compared to the "S" stamped bars, the "H" stamped trigger bars have a more aggressive loop angle and subtle length changes so that it engages sear sooner. Slightly modified geometry so that it contacts new slide stop for more tactile reset.
  6. I can't speak for the Titan specifically but my Nemesis eats everything I have given to it. I'd assume they would be the same given the design/parts are near identical. Winchester white box, Speer, Blazer Brass, Federal American Eagle, Fenix Ammo (Training), Fenix Ammo (Shell Shock NAS3 Match), Fenix Ammo (Shell Shock NAS3 2011 Specific Match), Federal Syntech Match.

  8. First, obviously, check to make sure the gun is zeroed properly. One of the things I often see when working with my patrol guys is, "my Glock shoots left" Often time it's easily fixed with: 1. articulating trigger finger at different joint 2. more grip pressure (both hands) I'm sure some great shooters here will chime in with their thoughts. Honestly though, with a group like that at 20 yards, you shouldn't be too concerned. Voigt does a great job at explaining it in this video:
  9. Nope, the weights simply replace the batteries that are in there. If you want to switch it back to a normal light, just put the batteries back in.
  10. Streamlight TLR-1 with Tungsten Weights weighs 9.85oz. You can also use any light that takes a CR123 battery, as two of these weights equals the size of one CR123 battery. Weights can be purchased from forum member Solscud007 See photos in link https://imgur.com/a/5Ce73MK
  11. Is your Apex kit a FSS? If so, it is not uncommon for the timing to be slightly off to cause intermittent light primer strikes. One easy way to test to see if the timing is off is to simply take the striker block out of the gun temporarily. If the light strikes go away, you know it's a timing issue (see below for fix). -------------- The gap on your trigger bar loop (candy cane) is opened too far. This allows the striker to be released prior to the striker block clearing. This robs the striker of a significant amount of energy, resulting in light primer strikers. To fix it, reduce the size of the gap on the trigger bar loop. This will fix your timing issue and allow the striker block to fully clear before the striker is released. If you have another M&P, that you know works fine, go dry fire it. It will make a crisp clicking/snapping when dry fired. A gun with incorrect timing will make more of a dull thud noise when dry fired (depending on how off the timing is). Essentially, you are doing the OPPOSITE of this:
