  1. I just scheduled a class with a USPSA guy next week to get me started in production class with my gen 4 34. My gun is set up already but I don't have a holster or mag pouches. What's are some good holsters and mag pouches that are in stock that can ship quickly? Also, what about a belt. I have a wilderness instructor belt coming for EDC that could work temporarily but I'd prefer to have a dedicated gamer belt. Thanks.
  2. Yea I want to shoot flatter and I have weak ejection with the factory RSA assembly. I really think that it's oversprung for normal ammo. For +p stuff like the gun was designed for sure. But when I'm shooting 115g remington umc the spring is overkill from what I can tell.Did you try a 13 or 15lb spring? Did it help with the ejection issue? Sent from my LG-D850 using Tapatalk Not yet. I have both a 15 and 13lb spring. I'll start with the 15 and maybe try it out tomorrow.

  4. I got a Jager steel captured rod with 13 and 15lb ISMI springs. I'm running a 5lb striker spring with the stock striker. Can I use the 13lb recoil spring or am I safer using the 15lb? I don't want any risk of an out of battery situation. I may go to an aftermarket striker with a 4.5lb striker spring which I imagine should be safe with the 13lb recoil spring but with a 5lber not sure.
  5. Yea I may try that. I finally got a trigger gauge yesterday so that I can compare changes. My stock 34 is coming in at 5.5lbs. I will put a wolff extra power trigger spring in with a 5lb striker spring and see where I'm at tonight. I may be happy with that and a .25 job. If not, DK it is. I had a 4.5lb striker spring in my 17 without any light strikes but that was probably risky.
  6. TTI are the best I've had. Perfect balance between speed and accuracy. Nice small dot at the top of the post is huge imo. High quality.
  7. That looks like a good setup. I can't decide if I want to leave the trigger stock and just polish it but put in a Jager striker with a 4lb striker spring or go with a vanek Classic kit, and keep the stock striker with like a 5lb spring. The vanek GM seems insane but that 2lb trigger scares me. I want to be around 3-3.5lbs. Just use the OEM firing pin spring with the GM kit and the trigger pull will be about where you want it. You may even want to tune it with a 5.0# firing pin spring. Yea but I emailed Vanek about that and they warned about pierced primers with a stock striker spring and Jager striker.And I wouldn't want to run a 13lb recoil spring with a 5.5lb striker spring just because I wouldn't want to risk an out of battery situation.

  9. Yea, I do the same. But depending on the backstrap my hand and trigger finger are in slightly different positioning. I have my pad of my finger on the trigger both ways, but I wonder which way allows me to pull back straight the easiest? I guess I'm thinking about this in a human anatomy, physiology kind of way. I dunno, should have just got a gen 3 lol.
  10. Get a scale. they are cheap. Nobody is going to know what your gun weighs. So many minor differences will factor in.
  11. I'm having a hard time deciding what the proper trigger reach should be. I have a gen 4 glock and I've been playing around with different backstraps and I don't know what I should really be looking for. Is there a rule of thumb or anything? I typically wear L/XL gloves so I guess I'm pretty average. I've never put this much thought in to this with 1911s before for some reason.
  12. I got to put a few hundred rounds through it today. Ejection was weak and had a few failure to feeds but I think that was because I was shooting Remington UMC 115g, which is a weak factory load, combined with the heavy recoil spring. I'm going to order parts tonight. Deciding if I want to do a Vanek classic kit with a 5.0lb firing pin spring and 15lb recoil spring or the GM kit with a 4-4.5lb firing pin spring and 13lb recoil spring. Vanek advertises 2lb triggers with the GM kit, that's why I'm a little hesitant on it. Never had a trigger that light. He also warned against using a 5lb firing pin spring with the Jager striker because I may get pierced primers.
  13. Yea I got a gen 4. Ordered from Grabagun. Delivered same day and arrived at my FFL the next. Can't beat that. Made late December/early January. I have TTI sights and base pads coming tomorrow. Anybody know if the stock mag springs work well with the small +3/+4 pads or are Wolff +10% better? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. A tungsten rod that makes production weight? Damn. What about if we are using your small base pads?
  15. Do I want to build a gen 3 or a gen 4? Hmmm Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  16. true. I have my gunsmith polish everything and he gets it mirror like. I like the looks of the DK trigger kit too but I dunno if I want to play around with overtravel.
  17. I dunno. It's cool lol. People seem to get better groupings with KKM's. From what I've heard it seems like KKM might be making Zev's barrels and then they just add some flash to them.
  18. Ok new idea and I want to order it tonight to get this stuff in. TTI sights TTI Grand Master trigger kit TTI stainless guide rod with 13lb spring Zev striker Zev barrel in black DLC
  19. So what striker should I go with? Because I don't trust 4.25lbs with a stock striker. Zen, Jager, anyone else?
  20. I've been so confused with different part combos on the web that I think I'm just going with TTI everything. TTI sights, trigger bar or grand master trigger kit, and steel guide rod with 13b recoil spring. TTI base pads. My concern is that if I run the 13lb recoil spring with stock springs in everything else I don't want to have an out of battery situation. Not sure what striker spring comes with the TTI kit. I've used a 4.5lb in a 17 with a stock striker and never had any problems. Maybe I'll go with a 5lb to both ensure that I don't have an out of battery problem and to make sure that I don't have light strikes? O and I'm going to use a KKM or ZEV barrel.
  21. Yea I hear good things about both. I had a Glock Triggers Guardian on my 17 with a 4.5lb striker spring and it was pretty good. I want to get rid of some over travel though.
  22. I have a Glock 34 coming that I want to get started in USPSA production with. I originally bought a 1911 to shoot single stack with and I don't shoot it very well. Not near as good as my Glock 17. I bought a good one too lol. O well. I have some parts in mind but want to make sure this is production legal. - Vanek classic GM trigger with the Jager striker: Is this the best production legal trigger that has overtravel adjustment or am I better off going with a Ghost connector with the overtravel tab? - Jager stainless steel guide rod with 13 and 15b recoil springs. - Dawson black competition sights .105 front with a .115 rear - TTI small base pads Anything else besides practicing a lot with it?
  23. I emailed them. It's a .125 rear notch width which is pretty good. I run a .125 black rear with a .125 black front on my Glock. If you focus it's a good sight picture. I may try the novak adjustable with a .115 or .125 front sight with fiber optic. I think that'll help with focusing on the front sight and looking through the rear. But maybe I'll love these Heinie sights and I won't have to change a thing. But I'm very picky about sights.
  24. This sight also looks very interesting. Does anybody know if the Novak cut Dan Wesson uses is the Novak low cut? I believe it is. Anybody tried this Springfield adjustable sight? http://www.midwayusa.com/product/721189/springfield-armory-adjustable-rear-sight-1911-novak-cut-steel-blue
  25. Yea I love Dawson. I get all my sights for my Glocks from them. Out of stock means nothing. Just means it takes an extra day or two to manufacture them. I've looked at that rear Novak sight before but I have no idea what the rear notch width is and it drives me crazy when manufacturers don't list it. Guess I just need to email them lol. Thanks for the help.
