  1. My FN won’t feed shells from the magazine. The shell stop doesn’t pivot when the bolt goes back. I have tried a new mag spring, a lighter mag spring, cleaning and polishing all with no luck. Any one have this happen before and come across a fix?
  2. Currently I have to stock recoil spring in my Shadow Shooting fiocchi 124gr at roughly 1200 FPS. I’m wanting to try some different reduced power ammo. Still shooting the 124gr bullet but pushing 980 FPS. Would I need to reduce the recoil spring weight or would this still function? Also curious about a 147gr at 780 FPS?
  3. Which part are you hitting with the razor blade? Im assuming the part on the hood as its easer to get to.
  4. I heard back from RHT and they echoed what was mentioned here. you can shave off some of the contact point to reduce the pressure needed. He did mention this does void the warranty on the hood. Also mention that the is hood more for duty use then competition this is why its is more more difficult to move, but also states if no mods are done will lose some over time.
  5. I'm waiting to hear back before I try any mods i really like the holster and the thumb screws for tension adjustment. I was just looking for anyone else input on ways they improved this, but apparently to some you can't ask questions like that even though there are hundreds. Thanks to those that were helpful and I will update what i hear from them.
  6. Typically companies don’t get back to you right away and they also have reps that monitor the board that can provide answers as well. i wasn’t looking for a “fix” but other expierences thank you for helpful reply though.
  7. I just received my level 2 holster for my shadow 2. The hood release is extremely difficult to release. I can’t have any sort of grip on the gun when I push the release for the hood out because of the force required. Does this loosen up any over time or am I doing something wrong. I’m disappointed at this point in time with the holster after all the good reviews I have read.
  8. The gun ran fine for about 4 months after the lifter mod using the same ammo. It was seriously a sudden event. One weekend it ran fine then the next weekend this issue started first shot and has been continuing.
  9. That parts solid. I can try getting a replacement lifter from MW and see if that fixes it.
  10. I was able to crop it down enough to fit but this is the bent part I was talking about
  11. The lifter does appear centered, but does have some play in it if wiggled. The lip that was bent was one of the very short vertical ones that come off the base. The side towards the ejection port this is what I thought was causing it but when fixed it still the same issues. using the same shells fiocchi super dynamic 7.5. They appear round even crimp. Not sure on the extract cut
  12. I have an SLP I have been using this last year for 3-gun. Just recently I have had issues with the shells catching on the ejection port side of the chamber. This summer I had the loading port and lifter welded and had no issues until last month. I took the gun apart and found the lifter lip to be bent out. I straightened it up and went to the range and am still having the same issue. Looking for advice on how to fix this or if it’s just time to get a new gun. I have images but can’t upload them the file size is too large.
  13. So I want to update on this. I have had zero issues with the 13lb spring. Last match I had one jam but I have zero clue to the cause I didn’t slow down to pay attention but no issues after that. I still need to put in the 11.5 spring to test but haven’t found time.
  14. I did get the ext fp and reduced fp spring. Hopefully it will all be here earlier this week so I can check it out.
  15. Will a 13# spring get rid of the light primer strike issue?
