  1. Thanks everyone for the feedback. Sounds to me like they’re worth it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Thinking about getting some and looking for feedback. Any issues locking in place? Do they have a real mag feel? Aside from being polymer I’m wondering how they feel when seating, ejecting etc. Did you have to dremel them basepad to fit your magwell? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. No. Went over to my buddy’s house that fit my top end. Confirmed the problem. Reamed it and is now good to go. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. I’m not sure. Never pulled the bullets to get an accurate measurement. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. It’s fixed! Thanks all for your help. Powder Finger helped me walk through to narrow it down. Had a slightly short chamber that only showed up with a few rounds that had longer brass. Just got back from my buddy’s house and after 6 turns from reamer all the “bad” rounds feed fine. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Yes. Reamed to accept up to 1.20. Ammo is 1.181-1.188 Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. I have not. The issue has something to do with the ammo as it only happens 1-2/100 rounds with ammo that is in spec for a hundo case gauge and barrel plunk test. The barrel from my old slide fits the new slide and feeds all the problem ammo without issue. The problem barrel is just failing to close the final 1/8” on these rounds and it’s a hard stop.

  8. No luck after knocking that down and cleaning up other rough edges. I put my old barrel that was fit to my old slide in. It seems to fit fine and all the bad rounds feed without a problem. If it checks all the boxes for barrel fit I might try it out at the range. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. I'm aware. Only did this once as a test. The extractor was loose before doing this. I adjusted and it was still good after I dropped the slide on the round.
  10. Thanks! I'll touch up that area and report back. Do you think I should also touch up that part of the slide that it's hitting?
  11. Recently had my top end rebuilt by a friend/part time gunsmith. 40 cal 2011. I have about 1500 rounds through it and getting 1-2/100 rounds that it will not lock up on (not even able to force slide closed). We’ve been trying to figure out why but are both at a loss. Problem has always been there but the first couple practices I chalked it up to “break in” What I checked... Cleaned and removed every bit of carbon. Ammo that fails case gauges and even drops right into the barrel. Even tried dropping into the barrel then closing the slide on it. I even measured everything on the ammo that’s failing and everything is in spec (except for length but barrel is reamed to accept it. And it drops right in) Recoil spring- had a 12. Tried a new 14#. No luck Magazines- good and have new springs. Extractor- tension was loose. Adjusted and problem persists. Put in an aftec from another gun. Still no luck. Since the season is just starting here in PA, I’d really like to try to fix this myself instead of sending it back to him. The only thing I can think of is that the dings (circled in pictures) have something to do with it. Can I knock these down? Other thoughts? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. For trimming, get the Giraud Tri-Way Trimmer. It’s only a few dollars more than the WFT but leaves a much cleaner cut. I’ve used both extensively and own the giraud Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. It’s not too far but I’m not shooting it. Mostly uspsa for me. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Thank you sir! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Ah! And, no way! The manual is long gone and posting questions on enos is quicker and easier than reading Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
