  1. What’s an “HG bullet”?? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. If you already have a G17, why not get a G34 to stay with 9mm? That would probably be your best bet. Keep your ammo costs down. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Production: Gen 3 vs 5

    I prefer the Gen3 over the Gen4, but that was not the question. I haven’t played with a gen5 yet, but will own one eventually I’m sure. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Jesse, That rail won’t work. I just tried it. The slot in the MI hand guard is too narrow. At first it looked like it would fit, with very minimal filing on the front bottom edge of the rail, but once I did that I was able to slide the guard on, but couldn’t tighten the hand guard because the slot bumps against the long edge of the rail preventing it from being securely fastened to the barrel.

  5. For the record, with a timer, I'm always just a little faster with the longer slide on the G34.
  6. The fact that I wanted to make PF in 3 different pistols is what got this thought process started. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Yup, first world problems... It gives us the distraction we need. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Lol, thanks, I only needed to put the Gen 3 slide on the Gen4 frame. I just confirmed that works fine, and that I like the original trigger better so back to original they go. Thanks guys. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Ok, then that’s great for you. Hopefully you will be able to find something that works. When me and both my kids are shooting it we can easily surpass that hourly round count, if the damn rifle didn’t get too hot to hold... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Can you put a Gen 3 top end on a Gen 4 frame? It seems like it should work fine. How about a Gen4 top end on a Gen 3 frame? The Gen 4 slide has a plug adapter and standard Gen3 recoil spring/guide rod. I have a Gen3 34 and a Gen4 17 and I want to swap them around and experiment to see which combination feels better. They have different triggers in them and it’s easier to swap the frames than the parts. Thanks. I tried searching as I know this has been discussed but I couldn’t seem to find it.

  11. For jacketed, can’t go wrong with Montana Gold or Zero. For plated, I’ve been shooting Berry’s for the last 15+ years with great results from my Glock’s. As far as coated go, I really can’t comment. I just got a case of Blue Bullets and Precision Bullets to test and play with due to cost, and mainly availability issues currently with Berry’s.

  13. Is that always the case? Don’t some 1911s allow you to load much longer than will fit in a Glock magazine? Years back when I shot a .40 cal SVI, I was using an OAL that wouldn’t fit in a Glock mag. I don’t know about traditional 1911s, but my STI 9mm will also accept a much longer OAL then the Glock.

  14. I wish I had something meaningful to add, but I am learning a lot. MikeB, You can't say everything is different because I can use the exact same frame and recoil spring so the only difference between the G17 and G34 would be the slide and barrel. And, I already know that I can't "feel" the difference. But, that doesn't mean there isn't a difference. I'm just trying to determine with math/physics whether the longer barrel/slide combo would produce a softer shooting result than the G17. I don't know what the answer is, but in my mind I "think" that the G17 would be softer because of the lower velocity. But, my wife will tell you that what I think is rarely correct. Thanks to the rest of you who have chimed in, it seems like there are a couple of differing opinions which means that the answer may not be as clear as I wished.
  15. I don't doubt that at all. I put mine there because I wanted it further forward and lower than the receiver. When you do get it mounted to the end of the barrel, go out and shoot about 150 rounds, and then see how hot your red dot and the end of the barrel are compared to the top of the receiver. It may never be an issue for you shooting a match with short stages, but when I take my two kids to the range to shoot plate racks and dueling trees that sucker gets HOT! I actually bought a second rifle so we can rotate them off. And so we could shoot head to head... "But honey, we need another one, it's for the kids..."
