  1. Let’s be honest, with the latest addition of the CZC A01 to the approved pistols we’re not that far off. I will say that sa/da and striker fire should be the line in the sand for the division. It adds a bit of challenge for those who are shooting the custom S2’s and A01’s. I have a hard time seeing them budging on that. That’s a huge fundamental change. I personally would not like to see 2011’s added to CO. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. I actually worked through this with these two guns myself about 8 months ago when I started shooting carry optics division. The idea you’re chasing here is the idea of a heavy pistol. What you experienced with the edge is due to the Edge’s sheer weight of the slide. That’s not an uncommon observation with the edge, especially in regards to 9mm. That’s why so many have the slide lightened. Weight for weight’s sake doesn’t make the pistol shoot flatter or have less felt recoil. You want non reciprocating mass. That’s why the X5 legion and S2 are both excellent choices for 9mm. So much of their mass is in the frame and grip. I shot both of these extensively. Ultimately I didn’t find that much of a performance edge in one over the other when shooting the pistols in stock configuration. I eventually did go with the S2 platform. The ergos of the S2 really won me over, it was more comfortable in my hand. Comparing the two side by side the S2 just seemed more substantial, more quality. The x5 legion is a great pistol, I think when it’s all said and done it’s the cheaper route. That’s not a dig against the x5. I ended up sending my S2 off to CGW to have a full makeover, I’m very happy with it. I’ve since gotten another CGW S2. I don’t think you can really go wrong with either. Just my experience. In my S2 i shooting 147 grn blue bullets of 3.2 grn sport pistol to make power factor with a little room for error. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Im loading: 147 grn Blue Bullets 3.2 grn sport pistol Fiochhi SPP 1.10 OAL” This runs in both my shadow 2s flawlessly Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. I ordered a square fine norton India stone and some honing oil. It’ll be here tomorrow. Is there a particular process to follow, method? I’ve seen smiths use sharpie on the slide rails to indicated areas needing thinning. Do I just try to focus on indicated areas or simply make 3 smooth full passes on each side then test fit the slide to frame? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Good Evening all, I recently picked up a spare complete 9mm upper from a fellow member here for my new TSO 40. The upper is in really nice shape, however it’s much tighter on my frame than my oem upper... too tight. It seems to me that the slide rails just need to be thinned as the slide is a hair to wide. Any advice on what to use and how to do so? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Welp, guess all that milling/ lightening for my shadow 2 to be legal was for nought. Hopefully LOK will offer some tungsten weighted grip options. That’s how it goes sometimes.
  7. I went to a local store and handled both again side by side. That TSO is just so at home in my hand. It melts into my grip perfectly. I went ahead and ordered a new TSO 40 sw from Big Daddy Unlimited for $1580. Then I came across a member here on the forum selling a complete 9mm TSO upper for $400. Brand new TSO with a complete 9mm conversion for the price of the edge I was looking at. Very very pleased!!!! I need some 9mm mags though, anybody have 1 or 2 to spare?

  8. This sounds good, I can definitely incorporate that as well. That’ll help me get used to that d/a to s/a follow up transition. Good tip. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. I decided to work on this at the range: 100 reps: -Bullet chambered, hammer down, holstered -3-6 second random beep on my shot timer -Draw and fire one shot in DA on a target at 12 yds -drop hammer, holster, repeat I’ve been twice a week outside of standard shooting. HUGE improvement on both my draw form, first shot time, and confidence firing in DA. I plan to focus on this for the next several weeks. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. I’m wanting another toy to play with. I’d like to pick up a new limited major pistol. I’m so torn between these two it’s not even funny. As most of us are, I am really fond of the 2011 platform. About 6 months ago I moved to CO and shoot a cajunized CZ S2 with SRO. I have really come to love the CZ platform. I am deadlocked here... For those with trigger time on both rigs, please share your experience/ insight/ comparison. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. This sounds like a very practical/ helpful drill. I will try to give 15 minutes or so a day to this. This seems like a good approach. Thank you. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. I’m a recently new shooter to the CO division. I spent my first few months with a 34 and then move to a complete Cz S2 build from CGW. It’s been a few months now and I’m very happy with the pistol, I just need to better myself using this type action. I’m having issues with the first shot anxiety especially on Virginia count stages. I’m taking way too long trying to line up and squeeze the trigger for a controlled clean shot. Typically, even if out of my desired sequence, I shoot a full target first to ensure a decent hit, before proceeding to any tuxedo/ partial cover targets. This is not ideal, however it’s what I feel most comfortable doing at this time. I’d like to work on getting over this What drills have you developed to work on this that first DA shot? Thanks in advanced. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. I would 1st adjust your over travel screw all the way back to ensure that’s not the case. If not see my diagram below, you need to remove some material from your disco.
  14. This is all excellent advice, hopefully we can keep this going for all new incoming RO’s!!! I went ahead and ordered myself a new timer in celebration of getting my card, I’m super excited to continue and grow and learn in the sport! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
