  1. i recently ran out of the 9mm acme coated 122gr tc bullet,they will not be making them for another 4 weeks min, since i cannot find them, i am curious if any shooter have had any luck with the lead non coated bullet. any suggestions on which were accurate. i have a new Hellcat and it loves the 122 acme coated TC bullet with 4.2 W231 at 1.070 chet
  2. going to be installing a red dot on my wife's PPQ, this gun is not optics ready. i see there are a few dovetail adapter mounts, i don't want the type that uses set screws to tighten the mount up in the dove tail, i'd rather they type that is 2 pcs with 2 screws to tighten in up in the dove tail chet
  3. looking for s 9mm optics ready target pistol for my wife, recently she went thru some cancer after the chemo and rad treatments, it took a tool on her overall strength. so after we started shooting again she was having s hard time racking her 9mm semi's. so i get her a S&W shield 9mm EZ slide, no problems, i let her shoot my Canik TP9SFX it came with a Vortex optics, she is barley able to rack it but she gets by and she shoots it accurate, but i can see it is a big gun for her, i would tickled if the Shield EZ slide was available ready for optics, so now i am looking for some input a new 9mm semi to get her that is optics ready, she has a Walthers PPQ, so will probably trade it in on something else, so far been looking at the Glock 19 MOS and the canik tp9 ELITE sc, is there anything else that i can check out, i was thinking of that optics mount that goes in the rear sight dovetail on the EZ slide but i don't feel it would hold up. thanks chet
  4. Has anyone ever 3d printed case feeder parts for the 550 and got it up and running chet
  5. i did finally polished all the trigger parts, except one thing i did not do because i was not sure if it would help or harm, was on the firing pin spring, i notice it had a rough texture, so i left it be, i will probably end up with a trigger kit, i notice the PRP kit is quite more expensive, but i do also notice it has more parts in the kit, i believe the PRP hellcat kit does not change the firing pin spring, where the Apex kit parts are just a firing pin and a trigger return spring, the way i see it the PRP kit should be a better set up, i am only saying this, i have never tried a PRP kit chet
  6. looking to where i may get a lighter trigger return spring and a lighter firing pin spring,,i installed the Apex trigger kit on my wife's Hellcat, nice trigger, i also have the Hellcat but i like the oem trigger shoe, i just needs the 2 springs, any idea where i may get them chet
  7. thanks, will give them a try
  8. been loading alot 9mm 125 rn coated lately, my wife has been saying the loads are quite snappy with titegroup and sport pistol, i have alot of other powders to try, any suggestions, she is shooting a walthers PPQ and the new S&W shield 9mm ez slide. i do have alot of other 9mm weights also, 115, 135, 147 and 165, but would like to stay with the 125 coated. chet
  9. i am getting low on my small pistol primers, i have a few 1000 of small rifle, will they work ok in small pistol use. chet
  10. since i have the new hellcat 2 weeks now, shot it about 40 shots, i am finding the trigger rough and a bit hard, before i have to spend another 150 dollars on a aftermarket trigger, i am curious if any hellcat owners went thru polishing the trigger parts ect and maybe changing the trigger spring or striker spring, or has anyone just polished the trigger parts and no spring mods. is it worth a try. chet
  11. well i want to thank for the tip on the grip safety, that was the problem, as i mentioned i do not have the problem probably due to the way i hold the gun, my wife is just getting over cancer, went thru 5 chemo and 3 radiation and this did take a toll on her wrist and arm strength, it's coming back but very very slow so she probably is not getting the grip she use to, but i did tie the grip safety plunger to the grip with some fine fishing line for the test, normally she would be lucky to shoot 3 shots the most and the slide would lock back, we just got back and she went thru 30 or 40 shots, no problems, now i have to figure a way to hold it in place without any drilling to the gun, although S&W did send me a Fed Ex shipping label for a return to check it out, not sure they can remedy but might be worth a try. any thoughts on returning the gun thanks again chet
  12. well i am off to the range with the grip safety held tight against the grip, hope this solves the problem. cold here in PA chet
  13. how much improvement did the PRP help, did it help any on reset, was it lighter, have you ever shot a canik 9mm if so does the PRP kit compare chet
  14. i am waiting on S&W to get back to me on this, chet
  15. Hello Sarge only thing when i got the gun, i took off the slide and cleaned and lube. chet
