  1. I just purchased a stainless STI magwell from your store and was hoping you could tell me how much needs to be milled off each side to fit into the IDAP box. Thanks, Tom
  2. I would Ask them where they source them from or if they can recommend where to get them. It's not like Wilson just to pass you on...
  3. You win, it doesn't. Just most right handed people think we left handed poeple are bass ackwards. It does effect other things. That is for another topic......
  4. Jade, On a five shot average my PF is 132.5 so it looks like I'm in the ball park.
  5. You will probably need to call Wilson on that one. I had to do the same thing for my Spec Ops.
  6. The muzzle not moving doesn't always mean they are shooting powder puff loads, btw. Yes, it just looks like they are shooting light loads. They have great control.
  7. Kyle, thanks for the links. I'll give the timing drill a workout this weekend. I do find myself relaxing my grip from time to time and sending off flyers. I'm left handed, which I know is my biggest problem, so Im going to look closely at my right (weak) hand grip. Ordered a 17# spring too. Ready for the weekend!
  8. It's you. Ben, please give me your input. What do you think I need to do to correct it?
  9. Steve, thanks for the input. We are practicing Saturday and I will have someone watch. Jade, The last time I check the PF it was around 123 to 125. I bumped up my load from 3.9 to 4.1. I'll check it again tomorrow. I'll take some of those magic springs too. Isn't this posted in the magic springs forum?
  10. I don't always double tap. But I do rush it some. Why am I only noticing it with my Glock? Is it the weight of the pistol? I see some guys shoot what seems to be powder puff loads and their muzzle doesn't move at all. I like heavier loads.
  11. Do you call the second shot when you double tap? After it happens, I certainly can call with out looking that the second shot will be high.
  12. Here is my setup: Glock 34 Gen 4 Zev Tech Fulcum Trigger Zev Tech Standard Power Firing Pin Spring ISMI 15# Spring SS Guide Rod Precision Delta 124 FMJ Tite Group 4.1 at 1.1 OAL CCI Primer I am not sure it’s me or the gun is jumping too much. When shooting 2-shots fast, a lot of times my follow up shots will be very high. Many times if I hit the zero on IDPA target my follow up will be a head shot. While they are both zero’s, that’s not what I was pushing for. I don’t notice it when shooting my Kimber 1911 9mm, Wilson Spec Ops 9mm or a SV2011 45ACP. I have also tried the Zev Tech blue (12) and red (14) springs (the red spring left paint flecks on in the slide). The 15# ISMI spring seems to settle it down some. My thinking is I need to go to an ISMI 17# spring to see if it helps the jumping. I know a lot of you use 13 and some all the way down to 11 pound springs. Please don’t just throw out there what is good for you. I’ve read 100’s of threads on what is good for who. What I’m looking for is help in why it’s doing it. If pistol cycles, will a heavier spring help? Could it just be me re-engaging before the gun settles? Does the gun run faster and smoother with heavier loads and stronger springs? Thanks
  13. You can find them at Brazos' store at http://www.1911store.com/store.asp Being this is my first SV double stack I was mistaken in that I thought I needed the 10-rounders because of the length of the magazine. Actually, I order the 12-rounders which are the same length. Tennessee has no restriction. They had both in stock. They were also very knowledgeable and helpful on the phone and I will do business with them again. Tom
