  1. Hi I also have some if you could not get the ones he had.

    Slide Stop

    Figured it out, I recently put a shock buffer on the recoil system, now it wont allow the slide to be pulled back far enough the release the slide stop.

    Slide Stop

    My slide stop has stopped releasing and allowing the slide to move forward. If I have to slide stop engaged, insert a mag with rounds, pull the slide to the rear, the slide stop will not release and allow a round to chamber ???? This just started, have about 3000 rounds through a new barrel with no issues.

    Drilling frame

    Beyond the sear pin hole issue, I did have sear/hammer issues. I tried honing the trigger hooks and sear angles, with no luck, so I replaced them, all is good now. And I have the correct size sear pin installed. This is a 1911.

    Firing Pin Stop

    Did you round that one yourself? I’m going to try the squared one for a while. I like the way it recoils and comes back on target.

    100% is the important part

    Firing Pin Stop

    Think I'll drop the recoil spring a pound and try again, I do like the way the gun recoils with this FPS.

    Firing Pin Stop

    I just fit an EGW FPS to my pistol, I had a couple of stove pipes, 2 out of 75 rounds. I really like the effect it has on the recoil of the gun, I had been running a more conventional FPS with the rounded end with no stove pipes, so the square end is an experiment. Might I have to reduce the recoil springs a lb or two? I have a 38 Super, running HAP 125(.356), 10.1 gr AA#7. Might be my imagination, but square FPS has a great effect on the recoil, the sights come back on the target much faster.

    Is 38SC dead ?

    Wow theWacoKid, you must do nothing but shoot, awesome!

    Drilling frame

    I drilled the hole to the correct size, now the sear is held in place correctly. Tried again, hammer still drops to 1/4 notch, although not as often. I have Brownell trigger alignment pins, place the trigger and sear on outside of the pistol, check for alignment. Seems good, stoned the sear just to clean up the face, still does it.

    To make a 9mm bullet travel fast enough to make power factor is the same, whether 9mm or 38 super. 125 gr bullet has to go 1320+ fps, 9mm or 38 S/SC. The case volume is the difference, there is less volume in the 9mm than a 38 S/SC. I would venture to say compressed for the 9mm, think this maybe the reason there are stories of bullets growing in length, crimp or not. In my short life(61), and reloading experience, compressed loads are used cautiously with the fear of over pressurizing the chamber. I'm not an expert on this subject, no chemical or mechanical degrees, but experience in the occasional HOT loads, there are reasons for SAMMI specifications. I know there are a lot of 9mm major shooters out there, and have no problems, but I also go to shoots, and read forums, like this one, and see the majority of gun failures are 9mm major, not to say 38 S/SCs don't fail. It's a personal preference, and everyone is different and excepts what comes with it. The price of 9mm brass is not an argument when you are talking about 4 to 7 thousand dollar guns.

    Is 38SC dead ?

    When I decided to move to Open, I made my decision after watching the folks with open guns over a year, mostly local(small microcosm), and some Area shoots, I decided on 38. Different manufactures, seems to me, 9mm's like to break things, like barrels, comps, and slides. I'm not saying 38 doesn't break, just my small observations.

    I should know better than this, but maybe SV got tired of warranty costs?

    Drilling frame

    I have done this numerous times, the hammer will only drop to the 1/4 notch while vigorously racking the slide holding the pistol in a downward fashion.

    Drilling frame

    Well, it's an undersize sear pin hole, by about .005". Not sure how hard the frame is? Not trying to be to cheap, not aware of any good smiths I would let do the job in my area, and I could always send off to a reputable smith. This is not an expensive pistol by any means, just not worth dumping a lot into it. The trigger pull was about 9#, had another trigger and sear of decent quality, so I installed them. Well, I have the trigger pull down to 3.5#, and when I let rack the slide quickly, the hammer will drop to the 1/4 stop. There is a sharp edge on the hammer hooks, and sear is honed correctly(I would say). I just feel that the small amount of play from the sear pin dia., to correct sear hole dia., it lets the sear release from the hammer hooks?????
