  1. Guns, once used, don’t drop much in value. I prefer to keep anything that may be used in the future. Anything I don’t like or don’t see the possibility of future use gets sold.

    Hello from North Ga.

    I don’t shoot 3-gun so I can’t help your there. If you want to try USPSA then check out River Bend in Dawsonville and Cherokee in Gainesville.

    Hello from North Ga.

    Welcome! I live in the North Georgia area also. Good luck!

    Glock 34 light strikes

    There was definitely more fouling in the channel than I expected. I found only black powder and no hard pieces but it took 6 or 7 q-tips before they came out clean. The spring end was not at a split in the cups and I saw no evidence of the striker hitting the striker block. I do not have adjustable over travel so I guess that is good. I wish this was easier to test. I’m not sure I can make it to the range before the next match.

    Glock 34 light strikes

    Thanks to all for the tips. I was fully expecting the answer to be the primers so I haven’t pulled out the striker yet. Would it be obvious if fouling in the striker channel is the issue or will a tiny amount of crud cause issues? Keep in mind that I did clean it spotless with a q-tip and inspected with a light less than 1,000 rounds ago when I installed the spring. I’ve probably been spoiled by running stock Glocks and getting away with ignoring maintenance. The gun is box stock with lightened safety plunger spring, striker spring, recoil spring and guide rod. I followed an online tutorial and polished the trigger parts. I have no overtravel adjustment but did polish the plunger button. I’ll take it apart tonight and report back.

    Glock 34 light strikes

    I haven't been plunk testing the rounds but the failed round I recovered from the range plunks fine in my barrel. I'm assuming that eliminates out of battery issues due to the rounds. The trigger bar is stock. I replaced the firing pin safety and striker spring and polished the internals like I've done my other pistols.

    Glock 34 light strikes

    I forgot to mention that I found one of the failed rounds and there was a slight crease from seating. From my research that is a good thing.

    Glock 34 light strikes

    I'm running a 4.5 lb. striker spring with a factory striker and had 3 light strikes at a recent match. I think the gun has about 700-1000 through it with the lighter spring. I'm new to this game and want to nip this in the bud. I really like the trigger now but I like a reliable pistol much more. What is the recommended frequency for striker spring replacement? Also, I'm using CCI primers because I ran out of Winchesters. Will Winchester primers fix this issue or is something else going on? I can only find the Federal mag and match primers in stock. Should I try these or just buy the easily available Winchesters?

    Base pads for production

    I run the +0’s. The are supposed to be production legal but I’ve never tried to put it in the box.

    New Classifier Percentages

    Balakay’s data looks exactly like I would expect from the GM’s that I’ve seen shoot at local matches. There is no penalty for failures in the hero or zero scenario so they go for it. Unfortunately, it seems our new new standards are based off of “burn it down” runs.

    New Classifier Percentages

    Exactly right! If I understand correctly from previous post then the new hit factors are all hero or zero runs by the best shooters in the country. Surely this wasn’t the intent of our leadership?

    New Classifier Percentages

    I don’t know. Sadly I think this is just another in a long line of decisions that are made with good intentions but poorly executed. I don’t understand the logic of using the very best scores. I thought the classification system should tell you where you rank among other shooters. To me this means what they can reasonably do consistently on a given stage, not how high they can score when the stars align with a “burn it down” hero or zero attitude. I would love to look through the data, maybe there isn’t as large a gap as I suspect between what I would call typical stage performance and classifier performance.

    New Production Rules

    Maybe I’m just a stickler for rules to be very clear with no opportunity for misinterpretation. I can’t see where the current rules say you can use a plastic or brass flush plug so if the ruling is null and void then how are we supposed to know that we can use a plug of any kind? I’m just trying to play by the rules.

    New Production Rules

    It’s a ruling by the NROI https://uspsa.org/nroi/rulings Look for appendix D4 #22 Maybe it carries no weight now with the new rules, I honestly don’t know but it is still on the site. The way I understand the production rules are if it doesn’t say you can do it then you can’t. I wanted to do the same thing as mentioned above to add weight to my G34 but just couldn’t figure out a way that I could defend the slug if challenged.

    New Production Rules

    Not trying to argue but the ruling is clear. Plastic plugs weighing less than .5 ounces are allowed. Since anything not specifically allowed is illegal then anything not plastic and adding significant weight is illegal unless the ruling doesn’t apply after the rule changes. I’m sure you won’t get caught but I don’t see how the Seattle Plug can be legal under the current rules.
