Calls Shots (8/11)

  1. I use a Hiperfire Hipertouch Reflex on both a PCC and a 5.56. They come with two sets of springs for a trigger that's light and one that's extra light. Clean single-stage trigger.
  2. No angled fore grip now? Is that recent?
  3. https://cesar-shop.com/firearm-parts-en/pistol-en/trigger-sistem-en/cz-shadow-2-shadow-sp-01-petelin/?utm_source=newsletter&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=hot_this_week&utm_term=2021-03-12 If you have tried it out, how does it compare in shape to the 'old style 85C' trigger? The latter I have on two SP01 Shadows and like a lot.
  4. Yeah, sounds like what was happening with mine. The spring for the disconnector was incredibly stiff out of the box, as if it wouldn't compress at all. So consequently firing/cycling would feel like a jackhammer slapping back on your finger, you could feel the hammer just struggling to put the disconnector back just to hook it. You just couldn't move that 'hook' back at all. But after about 200-300 rounds it began to soften and then you could barely feel or hear the 'click' as it engaged the disconnector upon dry cycling. And that's when I got a six-round burst at the range then recreated it on the next shot. So I think it just bound down and flattened this spring, or it was like the spring was already completely compressed before and this just crushed it.
  5. I had similar things happen with an RA140 trigger. Turned out that the disconnector spring had compressed and was basically ineffective, so the disconnector wasn't catching the hammer after cycling. I replaced it with one from a mil spec trigger group, having to put the tapered end down to fit in the bottom hole but it functioned fine and has been normal since.
  6. Maybe easier to load and less chance of hang-up. Also may depend on how much of a 'leap' there is feeding into chamber in particular designs. The Scorpion mag is curved to follow the natural stacking characteristics of the slightly-tapered 9mm rounds like with an MP5, so maybe less chance of hangups within mag as gasses/carbon gets blown back. Just speculating. I just like how the Scorpion mags look better!

    I have a TS slide in .40 fit to an SP01 Shadow frame (essentially making it a long-slide Shadow CTS) in which I also run a 9mm barrel. With the SP01, .40 and 9 share the same magazines as well, so it really can just switch calibers easily. So that's nice when I want to shoot major in Limited. Also have another of the same slide with an optic, so it makes a cool gun for steel/plates and knockdown in 9mm. Agreed, as this new 'standard' TS2 was going for the same as you'd get a current TSO, and the TS2 doesn't have the thumb rest/optic riser feature. But the TS2 did feel a bit better in my hands.

    Just handled one in a LGS, and gotta say.....REALLY like it. I never liked the thin aluminum grips on a regular Shadow or Shadow 2 because of frame width, but on a TS Blue that I had before I did, and on this they also felt great. Sharper checkering like on S2 and TS Orange are a huge improvement over the waffle-checkering from before. Trigger break was light but not disturbingly light like on some earlier TS. It also pointed much more naturally for me than either an S2 or the TS Blue I had before. Also for some reason I didn't feel as bunched up by the CZUB magwell on this as on the older-style TS. Everything seemed to fit nice right out of the box. I want one. But if there was ever a time when it made LESS sense to get it, in 9mm along with spending another $250 or so on magazines, it's now. I had to call the store guys dirty names to get them to throw me out before I pulled out my wallet.
  9. Oh I've had mine for years and it's worked like a champ with my regular blowback uppers. Maybe I will give it a shot with my CMMG RDB upper. But the only time I would even need that is when shooting falling steel where I'd get 33+ rounds from a Glock mag as opposed to just 30 using a P-Mag with the CMMG Endomag inserts.....and since it looks like I'll be laying low from shooting for a while with this ammo crisis, there's no rush. So you just inserted and set like you would if using with a regular blowback upper? Or did you specifically set it higher or lower in the mag well before tightening the set screws?
  10. Interesting...there does seem to be some leeway as to how high the Stern adapter sits in the mag well, ands it has those adjustment set screws. Tempted to try it out but want to leave my Stern for other receivers I have.
  11. I was looping at that before yeah. I just want to keep the Stern the way it is as I still use it with my other blowback uppers. Or at least I did when ammo wasn't so costly and I used to shoot regularly!
  12. I'll keep an eye on mine too. Man that thing really takes a beating, right?
  13. Don't tell anyone this either, but there are still 1911's out there in common use and availability that don't have one.
  14. Wow.....so based on this, whether the gun starts with hammer fully down, at half cock or cocked n' locked, it's just as likely to fire from a drop like in that tragic USPSA mishap. Changes the outlook on using them in Shadows if true. My only question...and not insinuating anything....is whether this was determined through testing by those who make them like CGW.
