Finally read the FAQs

Finally read the FAQs (3/11)

  1. I’ve changed my spring a couple times... through testing and as Adam says, find what poundage runs in your gun and stick with it. I do use the blue shockbuff. Just because the package says 8lbs doesn’t mean it’s 8.0lbs. I only cut coils if there’s excess coil bind when you push the whole recoil system through manually. The gun is not supposed to bottom out on a bunch of springs. It’s usually only a couple that I need to cut off if any. Mine will run at around 7.5-8lbs any less and it won’t feed right, any more and it’ll dip down on closing. I feel like the recoil/gun is softer/flatter at around 6.5lbs of spring but I can’t trust it The spring weight shouldn’t affect the accuracy tho, especially with 1 shot at a time?
  2. There’s probably lots of questions that people smarter than me might ask you... Just related to my experience with a chaos: is your comp loose at all? Misaligned? I’ve heard stories like this for both rifle and pistol that your bullets could be slightly grazing the comp on their way out. If both your ammo and your buddies ammo have the same accuracy results, it sounds like something to do with the barrel. My personal chaos had the set screw back out of the comp. it’ll loosen up after a few thousand rounds before I’ll re-loctite it again. Even loose, my bullets don’t touch the comp and I’m still accurate. I was told to send it back and they would weld it to my barrel but I hadn’t had a chance. Goodluck
  3. Everyone has their opinions on which factory style Open gun is the best/their favorite... It's going to be hard to convince you, as its personal preference to a certain point. i.e. tanfo/cz grip shape vs 2011 style shape A good idea tho, if your just getting into Open is: buy used. Dings on the gun don't mean much for performance and from what people say on Enos, barrels can easily see 100k shots before noticeable accuracy issues creep up. You can find deals on enos every so often. A buddy of mine sold an STI (well used but functioning great) with 4 mags and 2 barrels and an older DAA holster for somewhere near 2000$ That's the type of deal you might want to look into in my opinion. Also, if your not a tinkerer, new to 2011s, and/or you get frustrated easily: from what I've seen 38supercomp seems to give less problems compared to 9mm major (this is a generalization and from my experience with new guns straight from reputable builders). 9mm casings are finicky and it's been recommended by many people to find the brand that works for your gun and only shoot those. (which is hard to do if you plan on using range pickup brass) goodluck
  4. I’m not experienced enough with aftec to say yes or no.I heard it was top of the line in the past, but right now I see people switching away from it. To reply to the other comment about oal. The reduced oal under 1.16 was likely a bandaid to the underlying problem. Bullets weren’t going in for me due to the extractor tension. A reduced length got stuck a bit less often. I’m sure you could pull the length back out once everything gets sorted out, but I never did. I still load to 1.160+/- in my gun and it feeds just fine.
  5. Had the exact exact same problem all last year... It’s gotta be the extractor... too much tension is slowing down the round on its way up and into the chamber. For me, mine was cracked, so sometimes it had too much tension. Other times it had too little tension. Was very hard to diagnose due having signs/symptoms of both. Replaced and fit 2 new Ed brown extractors (one for backup) and the gun has been running fine ever since. FYI: I run the same bullet, oal, mags, as you’ve mentioned.

  6. They all have their issues, rmr included... Remember they had to make a version 2 of the rmr because the battery would lose connectivity. I’ve even sent back a v2 that had the same issue. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Cutting the spring reduces the poundage tho right? Gotta be mindful of how it would affect the slide closing, etc...
  8. That’s msrp I think... it’s already posted for less. Still very expensive for a slide mounted optic. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. No worries...just thought I’d share, as I just ordered one and received it this past week Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  12. Poly The SF needs some modification to allow for other guide rods to work. There’s a thread on here somewhere talking about it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Can’t confirm in the SF... But I just got a plastic q5 match this week and put in a rod from ssguiderods labled “q5”. I was told 320 and full size m&p springs fit. I ordered q5/320 springs from Wilson combat and the packaging doesn’t even say walther or sig... they’re straight up 5” 1911 springs and they fit fine. Currently experimenting with 13 and 15# springs. If the SF uses the same guide rod as the plastic, then yes for sure, the above would work... and the walther guys probably couldn’t endorse 3rd party products. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Looks to be very close to the same ride height... I don’t have an rts2... but I have a dpp and currently installing my new 510 right now. My dpp is .48” and my 510 is .5” without mounting plates or mounts, etc... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
