  1. One shot certainly does make a difference for me. The issue I'm having with my SDB is one of the 9mm brass not releasing easily (sometime having to yank up on the lever) at case mouth /powder drop station 2. Cleaning the bell doesn't seem to make much difference at all. Anybody else seeing this or have a fix for it? Thanks.

    Generic OAL question

    So @ 25 yds. what was the best group size and the worst group size? 1" to 2" etc.

    So far this one feeds just about everything even the 124 x .358's coated that don't plunk well. I slugged the barrel at .356 and my guess is the chamber might be the issue and a bit of reaming might solve that. 124x.355 FMJ plunks just fine but I'd rather shoot coated ?.

    So what OAL did you have to shorten up to?

    Thanks for sharing your experience. I'm shooting 124's so sounds like there'd be no problem should I need to switch out barrels. Doing all the springs first then going for trigger...maybe.

    Needs to have a multitude of rounds down the pipe and time will tell what else might be needed. Thanks.

    Well, that may be a direction to head if this one doesn't work out the way I want it to. Thanks for the report on the 09. Do you compete with it?

    Thanks SB, I'll see what's going on once the other upgrades are in place and as a final as needed the barrel...would be nice.

    Probably should have had this conversation about 3 weeks ago...before the stripped out rear sight set screw. Hopefully that wasn't foretelling of other things to come. Just got rid of one crappy pistol to buy this one and now I see CZ SP09's for way under $400. I'm too old to go for Shadows...what barrel length are your shooting with your PPQ?

    So you dropped in just the Apex trigger and nothing else or the whole kit of trigger, sear, plunger, and springs?

    Since I'm a metal smith/jeweler I have the "need" to make metal work together better and shinier. If I didn't have this affliction I'd be buying the Apex kits first off right out of the gate. Maybe I do need a 12 step program?. There's a Apex competition spring kit on the horizon for this gun...but after I've done all that I can do to it myself.

    Doing everything budget wise to start off with, then on to changing out with a checkbook(I REALLY enjoy fiddling with the mechanics of the pistol even more than shooting some times [emoji12]). Polished and shaped the plunger and polished the hole it rides in. Do you do any rail work on the slide or frame? Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  14. So far I've basically done the "Burwell" trigger job: 1.) Polished trigger bar loop 2.) Polished the trigger bar engagement portion with the plunger 3.) Shaped the plunger to a more rounded profile and polished 4.) Polished the engagement face of the striker pin 5.) Minor flattening of rear of sear and polished 6.) Rounded and polished trigger bar engagement face of sear Before I spring for an Apex kit of some sort what else can be polished up? What about the slide rails and frame rails? Anything else to promote function?
