Calls Shots

Calls Shots (8/11)

  1. I'm hoping someone will have available measurements for a 1911 main spring for a build I'm undertaking. Overall length: Overall length cap included: Inside diameter: Outside diameter: Coil count: Not concerned about wire diameter at this time. Thanks all!
  2. Get the slide cut. It's more secure as I've found out over my 'trial period' with EGW mounts over multiple guns. I finally gave up on mounts and had the slide cut on an SP-01. With regard to difference in shooting the offset is shorter.
  3. Having gone through a number of pistols and sight adjusting: What Sarge said. Cheap, effective and works on all brands of firearms.

    Sp01 red dot options

    ^^what SGT said^^I've had a vortex on plates for two different guns and just got fed up with odds and ends loosening up so I scraped the idea and sent my SP01 into CZ Custom for milling. It took a bit of time (I've read that other machine works have a shorter turn around) but that dot is ON THERE solid. I'm not a fan of back up sights and I don't use the vortex white stripes. Spend time on indexing and your natural point of aim and you won't need the back up sights or the vortex stripes.
  5. Switched from TG to HP38 for 125 coated with 4.2gr since it was available. I won't be going back!
  6. I don't know specifically why but I've always pushed them out to the left and put them in from the left. If you are putting in a Dawson sight look at the bottom for the arrow which indicates the proper direction for installation. Maybe it's the European way of all things "sights".
  7. I'm about in the middle of a 4-5 week (per Gallant) order shipping schedule. Hoping it's shorter than 7+ weeks. What other vendors are you considering?
  8. The question in my mind is when you swap parts between different models by definition what pistol does one now have. In your case is it a Shadow or is it a SP-01 and if it's still defined as a Shadow then FPB probably can come out. If defined as a SP-01 then the CO rule applies.
  9. You just may want to dig a bit deeper for the legality of it all. AppD7 for CO 21.1 says "ALL factory safety mechanisms, whether internal or external, must remain functional". So if you are removing the FPB on the SP-01 slide you will probably be outside of what 21.1 indicates. JM$.02

    CGW S-spacer for SP-01

    Thanks all, I have no problem with fussing around with the hand fitting (which it is), and since I kind of like doing that kind of fussy fitting I think I'll spend the $4 vs $46 for the easy path. Thanks again!

    CGW S-spacer for SP-01

    Thanks assnolax, good to hear you've had no issues over this amount of time.
  12. I'm planning on putting the CZ factory competition hammer in my Limited SP-01 build (manual safety), removing the FPB, FPB spring, lifter and it's spring. 1.) Is there any reason for choosing the spacer vs wide pre-B sear when installed with that hammer? 2.) Other than hard fitting the safety to the safety arm are there any other fitting that needs to be done to install the wide sear to the CZ competition hammer? The spacer install just seems a bit simpler (?).
  13. Until your pace is the outcome of calling every shot, there is the concept of “pushing.” BE.
