  1. I really like the system in my Q5 SF and I actually went back to the yellow after the white which was a bit faster and improved lock up
  2. I got the factory plate and it's sky scraper tall. As much as I don't like CHPWS (bad CS, in consistent quality, lots of half truths) they make a great plate and it really does lower the optic and uses the Zev bosses for the SRO. https://photos.app.goo.gl/CDSsEmfBe3wv3mtQ6
  3. I went with the sprinco and it's really only good with the white spring (otherwise it's too close to factory and still over sprung). It's easy to install (well easier than the ZR at least) and works well.
  4. I don’t run irons on it (SROs are pretty reliable from my experience) but I’m sure a set can be put on to have a very low co witness as backup. Dawson can get you any height you want…
  5. Yes, the springer plate works just fine and is a less expensive way to do it. I have the Zev Octane slide and barrel and I love it. I run and SRO and it's a LOT lower AND it covers the back of the barrel so I don't get any blast on the glass. It's expensive but it was a worthy investment for me (I have one in X5 and one on a Legion). I've run both in CO and they work great. The regular X5 size is my back up and general use gun (since it's lighter).
  6. You are correct! Sorry, I wasn't clear about what I meant - I run a Zev slide on my X5 since it let's me direct mount an SRO and get it a lot closer to the barrel. The GX Vice X5 holster does not work with some aftermarket slides like the Zev.
  7. I was all about RHT but the wait time and cost didn't work for me (I run the Zev slide for my CO setup since it gets the SRO a LOT lower than the factory plus a plate). The GX holster doesn't work with a *thumb rest [generic]* so that was returned (but you might not care about that). The DAA holster is very flexible and nice but also doesn't let you run the *thumb rest [generic]*. I actually run a Four Bros holster for a *thumb rest [generic]* and even it needed to be trimmed to fit the more forward SRO on the Zev slide (love it BTW). And that works great. I'm working with him for a deeper cut to see the chamber.
  8. Hi all – I’d like to get the ZR tactical guide rod… But they are back ordered and didn’t know when they would get more in. Are there other options that other people are aware of? I want to fix the over sprung nature of the OEM recoil spring. Thanks!

  11. I just picked up a Q5SF today end it came with a test target.
  12. Thank you as well! I'll order a new one and start there... Brandon
  13. Thanks again Mark - I tested this and it's working fine. It resets every time.
  14. Thank you all! Just back in town and need to get some time this weekend to take it apart and fix some things.
  15. It resets intermittently and is likely due to the loop - I’ll have to do some more testing from what mpom said. Thanks for the direction!
  16. I did the install myself and it worked for a number of years (and a few thousand rounds)...but.... ...I might just need a new trigger
  17. Hi all - I have an M&P gen 1 with an Apex trigger that...doesn't reset anymore. I've tried a few of the usual things (after talking with support) and I think I need to send that to a good gunsmith. Any recommendations for an M&P gunsmith from the group here? Thanks!
  18. Very cool - I ended up asking a buddy to make some dummy rounds and use the TRT Tap Rack thingie so they don't strip the rounds out. So, it IS the exact same as my actual mags but I would have preferred the DAA mags just be a bit longer...
  19. I have one and it makes all the trigger variations a LOT nicer...it does raise the weight a bit but I didn't notice a difference in splits
  20. Or pics for simpletons like me

    X5 trigger work

    I didn't see any needs to send the FCU to anyone for the GG kit (and most don't but it depends on your comfort with this sort of thing). It took me about 20 minutes to get it in and it's a lot better than stock...but I'm pretty mechanical and do a lot of minor gun work (though I'm no gun smith). There are a number of youtube videos that can help and it's doable (though no where near as easy as a glock). The Sig Armorer trigger needs the whole gun to be sent out since it's a lot of custom welding (on the trigger bar and trigger), grinding (on those parts, the sear, and striker in the slide) and polishing (on a variety of parts). Mine didn't have the over travel ground correctly and I had to file it down (wouldn't cleanly/easily break 10%-20% of the time). For the price it was very disappointing so I took care of it myself so I didn't have to send it in again (and take 2 weeks). I'm very happy with this setup now. The sear to striker fitting was well done and reduced the creep to next to nothing. So, I ended up with a better trigger but not sure I'd do it again for the price (over $400) and issues. A very similar kit can be done with the GG kit and one of the adjustable triggers but it's not as short or crisp. Just don't play with the over travel or you can impact the drop safety.
  22. I bought the P320 mags...and they would have been great if they were setup to be a 21 rounder. BUT they were 17 rounders which isn't the length most of us would use...
  23. Thank you! I assumed it was something like that but didn’t recall seeing the definition in the rule book. So, you really have to have your holster really in the middle to risk a 180 violation (at least from what I’ve seen on myself). I have mine moved to in front of my femur and it doesn’t seem to come close to the 180 demarcation.
