  1. Would polishing and installing a trigger (and possibly hammer, etc) be similar to the same job on a CZ Shadow? More/less difficult?

    In Ear Electronic Hearing Protection

    I do have some hearing loss, but the audiologist I saw didn't think insurance would cover these. Any tips on what to ask an audiologist to try and get it covered?

    What's the purpose of the BOLO, a shorter reset?

    DIY polish and trigger job?

    Your videos were a huge help! I took everything apart and polished where your videos suggested. Although, I didn't go far as you did to get a mirror polish on everything. I'm putting in a Dawson FO sight, and Wolff 10# recoil and 13# hammer springs. I think I''ll stop there and try it out it again. If I feel like it's a keeper, then I'll go over the Patriot Defense and add some other goodies. Right now I'm just trying to decide whether I like it better than my Shadow 2.

    P320 X5 Thread

    I just picked up an X5 in a trade and would like to try it out with an optic. Without doing any further milling, my only option is a Romeo1?

    New Reach Reduction kit for Shadows

    I don't really need the reach reduction, but I just ordered the T5 disco. Has anyone here tried just the short reset disco without the rrk?

    DIY polish and trigger job?

    I'm about to place an order from CGW for some CZ stuff, but I've seen a mention of something of theirs that's recommended for Tanfos. A pin or spring...?

    My Shadow 2 modifications

    The more I shoot my S2, the more I like it. I think I'll take it apart this weekend and polish everything. I think I'll also try the new CGW drop-in T5 disconnector. Not sure if the race hammer and sear kit would be a noticeable improvement.

    DIY polish and trigger job?

    Oh, well that's encouraging. I don't know why, but I got the impression they were more complicated.

    I know where the Stock ll's are.....

    My FFL finally got me one, should be here this afternoon
  14. Would there be any difference between a new "Accu Shadow" versus sending a Shadow to CZ Custom to be fit with the bushing?

    My Shadow 2 modifications

    I haven't done much to mine; Cajun 13# hammer spring Cajun Ext FP 12# Recoil Spring (although cases are burping out about 2', I'll try an 11# next) Lok grips Cajun 10x Bushing I shot 12 groups from a rest yesterday, then installed the Cajun 10x bushing and shot 12 more groups today. No difference in group size at all. I'm pretty happy with it as is, but when I have some extra time I'll take it apart and polish everything.

    CGW Disco vs the CZC short reset?

    I have a 91030 Shadow that came from CZ Custom with the pre-B short reset disconnector. I have another SP01 Shadow that came from the Custom Shop, but with the standard disco. I'd like to set them up similarly, but I wanted to hear from someone who's tried the CGW disconnectors and how they feel compared to the CZC setup...

    CGW Disco vs the CZC short reset?

    What would already having a short reset mean? Basically I'm just trying to understand the difference between my "standard" Shadow custom and the 91030 with the short reset.

    CGW Disco vs the CZC short reset?

    Not sure, but the reset on my 91030 is much shorter than my other Shadow custom...
  19. And trying different combinations of powder, bullet, oal, etc How many and what size groups are you shooting to determine which load is better? I'm loading 9mm minor, and I've settled on a powder I like. But now I have five or six bullets I'd like to try out. Just wondering how extensively I need to shoot each to get a sense of which is more accurate in a particular gun.

    What's everyones favorite aftermarket glock trigger?

    I think it's the best feeling, and at the lowest price
  21. Thanks, I think I found a used one
  22. I have a Shadow 2 and a Shadow SP-01, but I'm just curious to try out a Stock II. Just looking on Gunbroker and other popular sites, I noticed that they're not easy to find. Is that pretty normal? When they turn up, what do they usually sell for, new and used?

    Is there an ideal solution for CO mag set-up, or is still hit or miss?
