    Crocs, let your feet breathe.
  2. So could you use a modified BAD lever in place of the trigger? Asking for a friend.
  3. Here is a decent video series that covers lapping, sleeve compound etc. It is a 4 part series of brief videos that go over the aspects of building an upper. I am sure there some things that someone can find fault with, but I found them helpful when I decided to to put together a more accurate upper.
  4. the Athon 1-6 above is not a bad choice especially at the price linked. Put one a a back up gun and it is heads and shoulders above the the strike eagle I have in brightness and clarity (not saying much) Have only used it about 3 times but it has been solid so far.
  5. Used the egw mount on a glock to try out a red dot. Worked fine. Used it for a few months to see if that was the route I wanted to go. As mentioned above it is not optimal but it is a great way to try out a rds without making permanent mods to your pistol. The dot will be pretty high compared to a milled slide but it worked fine for me.
  6. Black hawk omnivore is easy way to play around with a light. Push button retention holds well but can slow you down if you do not practice a little. Have considered adding a piece of stainless wire to lock out the retention. It is a well made holster that does the job and is compatible with lots of pistols and optics.

    Barrel Fitment

    " tighter than stock fit and thought that if the slide were to wear to the barrel that could cause problems down the road if I swapped back. not wanting to wear the slide to the cheap barrel if that is possible." Could turn out to be a great barrel and hope it works well for you. My only concern was if the slide would wear to the tighter barrel take15 will get you 15% off if anyone else decides to try them out.

    Barrel Fitment

    "My question is why buy it if you were iffy about them??" Lot of positive reviews made me feel okay about purchasing it. Bought it to try a comp and figured give it a try and If it didn't like a comp, I wasn't out much. Really had no concerns until I noticed the tighter than stock fit and though that if the slide were to wear to the barrel that could cause problems down the road if I swapped back. Also do not expect a $50 barrel to last as long as a factory or KKM etc so hence the reason for not wanting to wear the slide to the cheap barrel if that is possible. Everything about the barrel looks okay. Rounds fit okay, gun goes into battery. Rifling looks shallow and the finish could be better but it is what I would expect at the price point. Will post up results compared to stock when I get a chance to shoot it.

    "Shoot it. It will be fine" Thanks "What Brand Barrel?" This amazing $51 delivered masterpiece. http://www.combatarmory.com/combat-armory-barrel-fits-glock-19-stainless-new-9mm-match-grade-barrel-threaded/ Not something I want to make a long term commitment to or alter my slide by using.

    Barrel Fitment

    Picked up a cheap threaded barrel to play with on a 19. It fits tighter than the factory barrel. Have never swapped a barrel before and am concerned that the slide may wear to the cheap tighter fitting barrel making the factory barrel fit even looser. It is an MOS slide so I do not want to screw it up. Something to worry about or just shoot it?
  11. https://suparms.com/collections/adjustable-gas-blocks-direct-impingement set screw is smaller diameter, I prefer clamp. Specs are on the website. JP has a nice low profile .750 block that should fit https://www.jprifles.com/buy.php?item=JPGS-9D Rifle above is pretty much the setup you are building. Barrel is not the match series. It is light out front and points fast.
  12. Superlative .625 fits fine. The .750 may fit. It is a really great hand guard. Good profile, installs easy, comes with a torque key. Been very happy with it. (looks like i may need to adjust the block if I get bored)
  13. Have a 16" gunner with the superlative block. Tried different ammo, bolts, deep cleaned, different scope, broke apart and reassembled, brake no brake etc but could never get consistent moa groups out of it. Seems like it shifts when it warms. Contacted faxon, not much response. I love the weight and use it for bays now but do not trust it for much else. Built an upper using an 18" criterion hybrid barrel and have been impressed with it's accuracy. It is sub moa with pretty basic ammo. I enjoy shooting the faxon and know some people who have had good luck with them but when it is time to replace it will go with another brand.
