  1. I don't know if the barrel fitment is different between the two but worse case you can send it to patriot defense if you have issues, they are in TX.
  2. Don't have tons of experience with their open guns but timing and barrel fitment issues do really trash the lugs, especially with the open guns / comps. You should be able to get a regular gold team and make it nicer than the xtreme for less money.
  3. Shoot whatever you like. Don't let people convince you. Been there done that. As long as it's a reliable gun with aftermarket support, fits your hand, it's good to go. Everything is preference.
  4. YouTube Tanfoglio Tuning by Memphis Mechanic
  5. Yes! I know Apolo mentioned the same thing on tuning extractor for 9 major.
  6. Yep, most require extra power extractor spring.
  7. Awesome write-up! Can you elaborate how to tune extractor? How are you opening up the hammer strut hole and by how much?
  8. Your sear completely clearing hammer hooks in double action? Over travel screw move any?
  9. Are you hitting mag release by accident under recoil? Need new mag release spring? The mag release fully hooking on to notch in mag? Mag release is firm and does not wobble when loaded mag inserted?
  10. If possible where you are located, i would just buy a new trigger bar spring plunger assembly. Don't waste your time on that one. Here in the states they are very cheap, $10 https://patriotdefense.com/tanfoglio-witness-trigger-bar-spring-3-7-3-8-3-9-3-10/

    HK45 v7 to v1

    Was this a difficult task changing variants?
  12. I achieved this by tti connector and spring kit, but use factory trigger return spring.
  13. The newer design has fixed that issue

    Get on hkpro forum, they would know all about this

    Light strikes

    Make sure there is enough over travel. Take safety plunger out and see if there are light strikes still. A lot of those modified trigger bars, parts, etc to take out maximum pre and over travel mess up the timing of plunger and striker clearing each other
  16. Use patriot defense firing pin spring and patriot defense firing pin.
  17. Check plunger and where plunger contacts trigger bar. With everything out and only trigger bar in, pull trigger, it should be smooth. Then push trigger bar down, keep it down, pull trigger, it should be smooth.

  19. Round not getting picked up....See if it does it on same mag loaded to 10 rounds vs loaded to 17 rounds. This will tell you if it's spring issue or not.
  20. With slide off, look at the nub. You'll see the area that has too much material and not able to rotate under short arm of sear. Look at the posted video. It's more time consuming because you'll have to take out sear every time but I like to fit by taking off material from sear.
  21. You say slide closes to soon: Check the part of slide stop that contacts notch in slide to see if it's worn/rounded. Check the slide notch that contacts slide stop. Make sure follower is pushing slide stop all the way up.
  22. Every gun is different due to tolerances and it depends on how safety was previously fitted. But since new gun, most likely not. I never had to get new safety going from 2 piece to 1 piece sear. You will most likely have to fit safety though.
