  1. I have tested CZ Pre-B, Shadow 2 0.2 and CGW disconnectors. Comparing them between each other and to the factory one, they simply does not reduce the reset. They do shorten the pre-travel in the trigger movement. This has been tested on a SP-01 Shadow and Shadow 2
  2. The fitting that you describe is to limit the amount of pre travel, not reset.
  3. Taking this animation as an example at which point in the Single Action cycle does the disconnector play a role in the reset of the action? When the hammer is fully cocked in SA mode the disconnector is already dis-engaged playing no role in the reset sequence of the trigger. Depending on the "thickness" of the disconnector "leg" you can adjust the amount of pre-travel in the trigger in SA mode but not the amount of travel required during reset. Animation
  4. Unless we are completely talking about different things the Disconnector does not reduce the amount of reset. Reset in short means the distance that the trigger has to travel forward after a shot is fired in order to re-engage/reset trigger bar engagement on sear leg (Single Action). The disconnector reduces the amount of Pre-travel (slack) in DA and SA.
  5. How is the SA break now with those parts? Any creep? How heavy is the SA break? Noticable wall when trigger is prepped?
  6. Just for the fun of it. I saw these two videos some time apart and started to wonder. Might this be the same gun that now at least 2 different gunsmiths have worked on... I don't know but they sure are looking similar except the grip, popple holes and red dot setup. Both seem to have the same deep cut into the extractor channel. https://www.instagram.com/tv/CHNltPkJlo2/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link

  8. You can find all necessary OFFICIAL information on the IPSC.org website if You want to figure out the current state of rules that apply. Personally I tried to push this subject in the right direction a while back and the attached document is what I shared with the regional RD and persons on the official IPSC FB page. The definition of Compensators in the rulebook and how should we interpret it for Standard Division.pdf One more source of information of the current state of interpretation is also the following: https://www.ipsc.org/ipsc-rules/rules-faqs/ " Standar
  9. Hmm, there I do not agree with you completely. Unless it is revised and added to the rulebook or as a additional clarification to the Rules FAQs page on the official IPSC webpage. It is not official regardless of what people want to think. Just because someone discusses (general assembly) and has their opinion about it it is not official until the documents (rulebook or clarification in the FAQ) are updated and released officially.
  10. 1911/2011 does behave differently compared to CZs based on the limited testing I have done. I do not know if it has to do with the "geometry" of barrel lock up / unlocking, hammer/spring strut geometry when cocking the hammer etc.
  11. I have a good working design for 170mm base pad for the 18rnd (old) tubes, and I am working on a base pad for the 17rnd chromed (newer mecgar) mags also. Tested the gun yesterday with a tad heavier main spring. The result got worse in my opinion, too slow slide action and the gun returns even higher than before. Next up is back to the lighter main spring and one step stronger on the recoils spring to snap the slide forward. The combination of lightened slide (for open) and heavier muzzle weight really highlights the "lack" of forward rotating inertia when the slide moves forward
  12. This gun started its life as a regular Shadow production gun, then I got bored and designed a compensator cone thread adapter to fit off the shelf bull barrel comps. Cut the slide and frame, threaded the barrel, modified it to allow the barrel to be removed from the front. Lightened the slide. Did not like the off the shelf comp and designed a couple my self that worked better. Got completely bitten by Open division (nothing else is fun or fast anymore) and will now modify my Shadow 2 to become a compensated open division gun. So that had me thinking what could I do with my old shado
  13. Still some spring tweaking to be done but quite good for the first time out. 130pf 123gr N320 8lbs recoil 9 lbs main spring. Going to test 11 lbs main spring next.
  14. I am starting a new Open gun project and decided to convert my "old" Shadow Open gun into a IPSC Standard Division minor gun with a sight block configuration. I have not shot it yet but I look forward to seeing how it behaves.
  15. Those are reference marks so I know how much to compress the spring. The 93mm mark is when slide is fully forward. This is for my Shadow that is stroked and thus moved the reverse plug more forward than the original recoil system. If I remember correctly its stroked 6.5mm total travel of 53mm. The 3.5mm mark is with a 3.5mm buffer. The 40mm is when the reverse plug (slide) bottoms out on the frame in its most rearward position.
