  1. I am using TK firing pin with their speed hammer and Wilson mainspring - working great so far. Unfortunately can only compare to stock (no experience with C&S or Apex).
  2. Thanks, that’s what I thought. I’m going to be shooting my 625 again this year (2nd year USPSA), but am looking around for a possible new gun.
