  1. I'd love to be at the SHOT Show and get a first peek and hands on the new models- Hopefully there will be some internet news releases to give us the 411...
  2. 1 9/16" measured to the end of the slide... be advised that the TRP rail is cut at an angle..roughly 30 degrees with my uncalculated eye.. Hope this helps KK
  3. I had issues with the Tanfo (Mec-Gar) composite follower wearing and sneaking past the slide stop locking the slide open and wedging the magazine in place. I replaced them with the Grams follower and spring and have had zero issues since. IFG Tanfo S1 10mm
  4. Update- Finally got a chance to test out the Stock 1 mags with the Grams Engineering Springs and followers... worked thru 200 rds with zero issues on slidelock.. Ordered 4 more to re-fit my other mags. Two thumbs up for Grams Engineering products.
  5. Good question, but no, none of the mags have been dropped or damaged Afaik. Got the GE followers and springs installed. The followers are steel and definitely shaped differently from the stock plastic ones... I won't be back to the range to try them until after the first of the year. Will post the results and hope the problem is solved..
  6. Seems to be confined to 1 mag for sure and the second one again once every 4th or 5th time.. I ordered 2 new 10mm specific Grams Engineering springs and followers to see if that might solve the issue... To Polymer- I did have 2 premature slidelock engagement issues today at the range....I will take a hard look at the stop to see if and where its making contact..I shoot Lefty and don't have the issues of bumping the stop so at least I can rule that out.. later in the session I had a couple of FTRB but that was after 150 rounds of MagTech..I pullled the slide and wiped the feedramp off....that is some nasty dirty ammo...Then fired 50 rounds of some warm reloads without further issues... Will post updates as I narrow down the list
  7. Went to the range today with my 10mm stock 1... at the end of a string the slide locked back but the magazine would not drop....after some WTF moments I found that the mag follower had jumped past the slide stop/release locking it up...and only by shoving down on the follower could I get things back in order. Im not sure if the follower is the culprit or the Slide stop. One mag consistently does it (Aha, So its that mag!)....but wait! one other mag will do it every 4th or 5th time... the gun has about 1k rounds through it and I don't know where to start.. Mags are the Mec Gar 14 rd which I load to 13 to keep them from expanding. I don't mind so much replacing whatever is causing the issue but I hate chasing something that appears inconsistently. If it's just a matter of replacing the follower..thats the least expensive route...then will a .40 follower work or is this 10mm specific? Open to any ideas...suggestions?
  8. Italian Firearms Group now has them all listed under the Defiant line, with 3 models.. Stock I, Limited Pro, and the Defiant Force Plus (poly frame on this one)
  9. I was going to start with IDPA, but with the usual rumors flying around about the long term health of said organization, I would not be opposed to venturing in to USPSA. Of course it may depend on which one is closer or even available in my area... Having never shot either one from what I have read IDPA has more classes that allow me to use my EDC gear and not be left behind technology-wise...More "real world" scenarios? Again having never shot in either discipline I am speaking from a place of ignorance and may be way off in my interpretation.
  10. I really like your Harveys IWB rig....Sadly I couldn't find one in my neck of the woods quite like it....so I got lucky with the AG one fitting so well. Very nice setup there!
  11. Been in and around firearms for 40+ years....Spent some time in the Military and then a few years in Law Enforcement... Did some IPSC shooting back when it was pretty much the only game in town...Never had the discipline to commit much time or energy (read $$) to it and found other interests... Now that retirement leaves me with a bit more free time I want to get back to the shooting sport and hopefully improve on what I started way back when.. I have read so much good information here from so many knowledgeable people... I hope I can contribute here and there and bring something to the forums besides questions. Now spending my days between Texas and Colorado
  12. I know this is reviving a somewhat older thread, but yes I have the IFG Stock1 in 10mm ...and it is my EDC... after giving it some fluff and buff thanks to videos from the resident SME Memphis Mechanic, I have put about 750 rounds thru it with zero failures... used S&B, Magtech, and Hornady ammo... only real mods are the Henning Guide rod, 22# Wolff Spring...and Dawson FO front sight. I carry it in an AG Cloak Tuck with CZ-Sp-01 phantom shell... its an exact match for the Stock 1 frame but I needed to use the thicker spacers to get it to fit.. I love this thing...recoil feels like a CZ with 9mm+p.....Enough to sell 2 of my 10mm 1911's that I really have no desire to shoot anymore.. Its a wee bit on the heavy side...good and bad depending on how you look at it...but I was used to the 1911 so it wasn't a huge change. Hope this helps srrch make a better informed decision if its still up in the air
