  1. I always thought SS minor was cheating. Guess that's old fashion. But SS MAJ has its challenges if you want to try something diff.
  2. Most of the paper used for grips is about 40 grit. I like it because its aggressive. You can buy the pre-cut paper for a lot of different pistols. Check the usual online stores that cater to competition shooters. Dawson Precision, Shooters Connection, Speed Shooters, PF Shooting.
  3. I really like the ghost holder. It's drop set for the longer mags so it's easier to reach.
  4. Ah yes, that's the idea. Thanks
  5. +1 I shot SS with mine. DW offers the best quality and features for the price. Great value.
  6. I don't know why no one offers a 1911 sized polymer grip for the 2011 frames. I searched but haven't seen one. Seems like a viable product. Make a 2011 style polymer grip so it accepts single stack mags and voila! I'm thinking it would be a lower cost way to build a 1911. Thoughts?
  7. Yes, I would contact STI. That is not normal. I've never seen that in that location. They should correct it no matter where you currently reside. Was the gun purchased new or was the frame bought and used for a 2011 build?
  8. I have the analog one. Works great.
  9. Oh the trigger guard. No such thing as a frame lug. Yes, I had an aluminum frame that cracked at the trigger guard. Just kept getting worse. Switched to a polymer grip.
  10. I had a lug break clearly due to improper fitting. Upon close inspection you could see where lug contact occurred as the frame was not properly relieved. Manufacture replaced the barrel under warranty. Worth trying. A reputable company should fix it.
  11. It depends what you need. Having a competent smith do the work will cost around $150 to $200 just for the labor but it's worth it. A good quality ignition kit such as EGW runs around $140. Add shipping if not local. Most smiths will only do 3-5 lb trigger jobs. Below 3 lbs is only recommended for completion shooting.
  12. Finally! Some who understands. This is EXACTLY how my process is supposed to be used!!!
  13. So you replaced the link? And followed Vma606 test? As mentioned, it's important to make sure you maintain the pressure on the barrel. And just to clarify, the slide stop pin should rotate (swing) around the pin axis with no side to side motion. Even if it doesn't rotate (swing) completely freely but you can easily rotate it with a gentle nudge that's okay too (the link increments are not that fine). If this checks out then I would agree, it was probably a bad link pin.
  14. I agree, you should have the barrel fitting checked by a competent smith and let them install a new link pin.
