  1. Round nose? Any chance you can put a caliper to one and let me know the length from base to tip?

    Glock 17 FTF Issue

    It has happened to me too, and I shot USPSA for 20+ years so I know it's not limp wristing. I have bumped the fps up and am awaiting an 11# spring. Should solve the problem. Thanks.

    Glock 17 FTF Issue

    I should have mentioned that I have installed a Charlie Vanek trigger kit in it and installed the 4# firing pin spring, so I got that part covered. Doing some testing today and, if need be, will order the 11# recoil spring. Appreciate all the great answers. Thanks.

    Glock 17 FTF Issue

    My concern is, with an 11# spring, are you risking damage due to increased speed of slide?

    Glock 17 FTF Issue

    Thanks! Will make adjustment and go to range tomorrow.
  7. I have a Gen 5 Glock 17 that I am reloading for on a Dillon 550 (reloading experience 20+ years). Right now it has a 13# recoil spring in it (17# factory too hard for grandson to pull back). Load right now is 3.8 grs Titegroup with Zero 115 gr. jacketed roundnose bullet. OAL is 1.070 and they chrono at 1002.60 average. But, every now and then I get a FTF as in attached photo. So, what causes this? Too short OAL? Recoil spring weight? Powder charge? Suggestions appreciated.
  8. Sorry, should have mentioned it is a Gen 5 Glock. The Tec Performance one will not work.
  9. Does anyone make a thumb rest/pedaL for a Glock 17 (Gen 5)? Links appreciated.
  10. Fair enough. I have decided to get a set of Dawson sights. I have had them before on other Glocks. Thanks.
  11. The standard Gen 5 captured 9mm guide rod/spring unit is 16 or 17 lbs, I believe. Am I correct? Does anyone make a unit for this Gen 5 that is 14 lbs? Where purchase? Link? I reload and am looking for a lighter recoil spring assembly. Not using any +P ammo in it. Thanks for any help.
  12. All set, mods please delete post. Thanks for the help.
  13. Just got a Glock 17 ( I have had numerous Glocks before) and I would like to get an adjustable sight set for it. I like a plain serrated black rear and a red fiber optic front. Can anyone recommend a set that fits those criteria? Gen 5. Front sight is not in a dovetail, it has that heaxagon shaped "pin?" inside the slide.
  14. Just curious, does anyone make hi cap (20+ rounds) magazines for the Ruger Mark IV 22/45 Lite? I fully understand that they would stick way out of the bottom but trying to find out if there is such a thing or not. Thanks.
  15. I have a Ruger Mark IV 22/45 Lite that I have upgraded with Tandemkross parts. Have added their TK compensator, Halo charging ring, Volquartzen trigger kit, TK trigger, TK extractor etc. Gun shoots great but seems finicky about what ammo it likes. Tried CCI standard velocity and was getting a number of fail to extracts. Figured it was the extra weight of the Halo on the bolt slowing things down so switched to Federal high velocity. Works better with fewer FTE's but getting some failure to fires. What should I try next to make this 100%? Was thinking about trying CCI MIni Mag, anything
