  1. Good for you to ignore them. Before long the naysayers won't even be a footnote to the games. There have been times when many things have been frowned upon by those unwilling to embrace change. Drive on and enjoy the ride.
  2. Im not sure if its caliber specific or what, perhaps thats where some confusion lies, but my 9mm 2.0 5" has the same spring assembly as the blue painted one in the picture. My 40 2.0 5" has the same spring as on top in the picture. P Taylor, what caliber is your 2.0 5"? You didn't specify.
  3. Step 1: Make a good plan, including mixed loading, separate carriers for buck and slugs that are different colors. Rehearse the plan in your head, visualizing each shot over and over until called to shoot. Step 2: Execute the plan Step 3: DO NOT deviate from the plan. Step 4: DO NOT miss.......
  4. So why don't you feel it facilitates noticeably smoother reloads? Of the two I posted in my photo one has the magwell stepcut for factory baseplates and the other is the Standard Magwell with no cut. When practicing magchanges they both work equally well, as long as I use dummy rounds in the step cut magwell. An empty mag can sometimes get lightly hung up on the step, but in practical use they are as good as any magwell in their size catagory.
  5. Cerakote is your friend if it bothers you that bad. I painted one of my FDE pistols in Patriot Brown just to make it a little different. Most of my other pistols are black so the change is welcome. The picture does not show the difference very well but the brown is considerably darker in person. Im a bit perplexed as to why S&W chose to make all the 5" 2.0's in FDE. Its not because of the possible Mil contract from the M17 trials because they make a black 2.0 frame. They also make three different 2.0 5" slides. I just think somebody dropped the ball.
  6. I have the Carver on both my M&P 2.0's I got them here and they are in stock. https://www.shootersconnectionstore.com/CARVER-20-MP-Tactical-Magwell-P4964.aspx
  7. Recently got a P320-M17 and also had the opportunity to try a friends X5. Not at all a fan of the feel or bore axis of either. My M&P 2.0 isn't going anywhere. Stock trigger is terrible on the X5 for what is marketed as a competition gun.
  8. You already know the one to choose.
  9. Sounds like you're on the right track with the trigger. The next heaviest buffer may help with the dirty ness also when using the suppressor.
  10. Is the Vltor upper 300 BO? What trigger? What buffer weight? Have you verified headspace?
  11. Another resounding "NO". No factory M&P trigger can compare to an APEX FSS flat faced trigger. All my M&P 2.0's have them. Even my cary gun. Standard parts for me have way to long of a reset and too much take up.
  12. Mobil 1 is among the safest lubes you can come in contact with. This is from the MSDS sheets of all the following oils. Numbers listed are for Health, flammability, and Reactivity. Mobil 1 0. 1. 0. CLP. 0. 1. 0. G96. 1. 4. 0. Remoil. 1. 2. 0. Slick 50. 1. 3. 0. Slip 2000.1. 1. 0. LSA. 1. 1. 0. Hoppes. 2. 3. 0. Lucas oil. 2. 1. 0. Lucas grease. 2. 1. 0. Slide glide even had a warning of injection under the skin just like Mobil 1 had. Every single one said to wash your hands after. It became apparent that regardless of your choice they all carry very very minimal health risks. To argue otherwise is foolish.
