  1. I had some "issues" with posting. Only got this one to go. Its the thick version. I also have a thin set to play with. I will say, if you miss your grip on a draw, you ain't gonna just slide the gun around with these bad boys in place. These are "cost savers", because you won't ever need to buy pro-grip again! And obviously, these are "in the raw" and not anodized. The ones he will sell will be anodized.
  2. Joe from PD sent prototypes out to me for a final look. WOW. These sucker's turned the grippy knob up to eleven. The thin version INSIDE A ZIPLOCK BAG had more traction than almost any other Tanfo grip I've experienced. Here's a sneak peek comparing the PD to LOK bogies pattern. I'm going to do an evaluation over the next few days and will post up about it. Impressions, shooting, fit to the gun and weight.
  3. Joe can get slides from eaa. Downside is cost. Eaa is very proud of them. And they arent often in stock.
  4. I have a 2014-ish vintage 40sw match. It has lots of rounds thru it. No issues.
  5. The syntech 150 is a great soft shooting load...but it has a "fat shouldered ogive" profile. Joe reams to SAAMI spec, but (in my experience) the syntech 150 is still too fat. Always plunk test. And when in doubt, use as pointy a round as possible.
  6. Great input guys. While, finding out an idea is "straight up stupid" (and i do admit that) is no fun, I'd rather look stupid for an idea, than for a bad stage. So thanks! Will put that into the bin where it belongs.
  7. Ok, I'm designing a stage where the RO stands next to a barrel with the competitor's unloaded gun. The competitor is 25-30 yards away in a start box with a flag. The idea is, since it's too far for audible signals, the RO will raise an arm to "ask" if the competitor is ready. The competitor will raise the flag to say "yes, I'm ready", the RO will then wait and drop the arm and start the timer. The competitor will run to the barrel, load the gun and commence shooting. Question.... is that allowable? And acceptable in the rules? 3.2.1 seems to say yes, but ... more opinions are better. Especially on how to equitably do it. The benefit is the Ro isn't run ragged (lol) and the squad can be close to allow faster pasting. Thanks
  8. Lets see... Lighter than factory...fails factory ... passes PD heavier than factory.... hmmm? I have 25,000 on a PD firing pin with no failures. the gun sets off everything tried with the 15.5 hammer spring and pd return spring. just my experience.
  9. i would increase the recoil spring, but I don't shoot 10mm, so that is "theoretical". the other springs don't need to be changed, but the hammer spring can "fine tune" the recoil force curve. However, in a DA/SA gun that can cause the DA pull to become extreme. Most don't want that trade off ! (I don't).
  10. I would suspect you used a bad email address or the isp had a glitch. They respond quickly.
  11. I also heard adaptor plate in a dove tail mount was the only option.
  12. Huh, learn something new everyday. that method is one I hadn't thought about, probably as I try to stay away from the sear engagement side of things. That is an area where experience and the correct tooling are important. Anyway, Thanks for bringing it up! One point, the Tanfo sears are only thinly surface hardened. removing the bottom material ... do you think it will let the sear wear faster?
  13. Www.gunparts.com. they used to have them
  14. You need the da trigger too. (But you probably knew that)
