  1. I would def try recoil spring before anything else as its a very cheap part. I sounds like the new grip and weight of the gun has changed the impulse of the recoil. If the gun is not coming back to zero, a heavier spring might help drive the muzzle back down more. Maybe try cutting down a 9lbs spring and see what happens. Also this as you know more gas etc can def change the dot return location. I have tried Shooters World Major Pistol, def one of my top 3.
  2. STI Gen2 bodies with TTI guts and basepads
  3. I change the recoil and FP springs every 5K. I run a light spring in an open gun. I change the Main every 10K. Does it require that, probably not, but springs are cheap. waiting to long can cause the cyclic speed to change and cause bigger problems like cracked slides etc. As for Magazines I change them out every season, for same reason as above, don't want to them to fail in a match. I check the feed lips twice a year and touch them up (if needed). Only check them more often if I shoot a lot of indoor matches or dropping them a lot on gravel bays etc during the season. I keep spare pre-cut and tuned springs for recoil, FP and main, and a spare 140 and 170 mag spring in my bag
  4. I think just the basepad is enough for +1. But, I changed to TTI springs and followers and got +2 I think, its been awhile.
  5. Based on the info you provided my question would be how many rounds on the DPM recoil reducer vs the Wolff sprig setup, if that changed the weight or how fast/hard the slide cycled that might be a contributor. If they both lasted for all those round until the change that is at least something to look at.
  6. Not my post, but I would absolutely buy another Akai. Shay has taken care of every issue I have had. I have shot both SV and Akai. I look at it like this SV is a Bentley all the best parts, looks cool, and is top of the line. To me Akai is like F1 its looks cool, is top of the line, but all about pushing performance. Both are high HP machines, but the akai doesnt have all the frills and luxury coatings etc. It has a lot old and new concepts like different comps, stroking, etc. to me more tune-ability always trying to improve. I personally dont care about looks, I want to push performance of the machine. I am sure others will disagree, this is just my personal opinion.
  7. Enough 3n38 in a 9 case will be tough poppels or not but I like guns tat them more..I have an akai V6
  8. Mine was right around the same as furrly 7-8 months, but I think his time has increased some.
  9. I run AKAI guns. There are several builders out there. Everyone is going to have an opinion based on things they have heard or personal experience with a builder. AKAI has been awesome to work with and quick to respond. I have shot several custom built guns by other builders, none were bad, but the AKAI to me was the best. So I ordered one...or two..or..lol!!
  10. They are great guns. I am always of the opinion of do not fix it, if it's not broke. If it shoots well for you, then keeping shooting it and enjoy it.
  11. I run all STI gen2 mags 4 170s and 6 140s...bought the tubes set them to the correct specs for the side dimensions and feed lips. Use TTI guts and basepads with zero issues.
  12. It's good they worked with you, that hasn't always been the case. I have had issues and they have fixed them, but it normally takes time. Been waiting on the latest return communication for over 2 weeks. Mine has been down as the primer feed bar is stuck and will not return and pick up a new primer.
  13. I agree with the delays, been waiting on a response for over 2 weeks. It's ridiculous, I am tempted to sale it and buy a 1050/1100 now I guess.
  14. I have 3-170s and 3-140s for matches. 2-140s I use for mandatory reload etc. And 1-170 and 2-140s for dry fire and practice.
  15. Mine is just under 2lbs, but that is how it came from the build
