  1. Had kadet on a 85 before, racking is heavy with stock main spring . However one could cock the hammer first, and racking will be much easier. Reliability is kind of hit n miss particularly with a new kit.
  2. With sear cage installed. Safety was a little tight to install atm.
  3. Thanks guys, that's it... I found a local distributor who carries #44 drill bit, with a dremel 3000 kit I did a rough job tonight. With the extended #19 pin in, what a difference it has made on DA! It breaks clean without any hesitation now, and safety lever stays dead still. It was a quick n rough fit, 1 try, thanks to this post and others I came across. For me this is the best "upgrade" after a main spring. Thanks a lot!
  4. Thanks will look for the spring at some stage, it hardly gets used with ipsc prod. For what it's worth, I came upon this post https://forums.brianenos.com/topic/252984-cz75-not-resetting-in-double-action-during-dry-fire/?do=findComment&comment=2817762 And looking at the disconnector I saw wear marks at the same spot marked red in the post. The theory being the disconnector might be pushing the sear cage up too high. A few light stroke of file followed by 1400 grit sand paper at that part, I found it nearly fixed the DA issue. With thumb riding on safety DA dro
  5. SP01 Shadow, front end of RH safety moves outward as shown in picture. This is happening during DA, particularly when using a reduced power mainspring. When this happens, hammer will not drop. Thumb pressing on LH safety helps, most of the time. Squeezing on RH safety so it stays close to slide always drops the hammer. With stock hammer spring or slightly lighter ones hammer always drop. Any thoughts what's causing this? Wear on the safety or sear cage? Or disconnector? Thanks.
  6. Check your hammer spring. When my 13 lbs CGW hammer spring had 3 coils cut down I started noticing this problem, with 5 coils down it happened quite often. Back on stock spring the problem was gone. I'm on eemann 9 lbs spring unless I pull the trigger very very slowly I don't have this issue anymore. I did notice, with slide off, that the sear gage moves back a bit, when I pulled the trigger very slowly, that movement might've caused some geometry changes. Thumb pressing down safety seems help a bit (to keep sear cage in place). Not sure that's a fitting/wearing issue o

    sp-01 shadow woes

    Came upon this when searching sp01 recoil springs... For what it's worth, my shadow sp01 has the same issue, if I intentionally pull DA very slowly, particularly if pulling towards left, it doesn't release the hammer unless I wiggle the trigger to the right. I had some rough polishing done that could've affected the sear. But under normal range time/dry firing, pulling DA "normally" and decisively I've never encountered that issue.
  8. Glock ships with 4 plates right? Any chance your Q4 Tac came with 3 plates in the box? Mine came with none, and manual says they are optional. Glock would have a lower bore axis and optic mount height, enjoy it. I'll shoot Q4 with iron sight first before I decide on an optic.
  9. Woo... how you like the Glock in comparison? Just got a Q4 Tac on sale this weekend. It fits my hand better and trigger feels smoother than a 17 MOS Gen 5, and a lot cheaper. Will see if it shoots flat or not. I usually shoot 124 gr, almost bought a case of 115 be but a bit worried about recoil, only grabbed a few boxes to try out next weekend.
  10. Hi all I'm getting a Walther PPQ Q4 Tac next week, and looking for holster options (in AU/NZ) . My current main pistol is a Shadow SP01 using a DAA racer on a DAA belt which I don't have complains. I'm looking at DAA alpha-x with Q5 match insert, pretty sure it fits the Q4. I'm planning to get a Shadow 2 next year, I could just get a new insert then. Another option is safari land 577 GLS, at 1/3 of the cost (of alpha x), which would also fit most 1911, G17/34 or Q5 match SF that I'm interested in. But I haven't tried it before and not sure if I'd like
  11. Thanks... Q5 SF is not available here, it's also not yet approved for IPSC production, last time 8 checked. How much of an improvement is it over Q5 match?
  12. 17A gen 5 yes, non MOS Very limited Sig here, there is a X5 but not in local shops, it's quite heavy from the figures, 1 KG?
  13. Thanks, the steel frame is not available here downunder, nor is CZ P10F. My main holding back on the walther is the bore axis and muzzle recovery time. I'd certainly upgrade if they would produce a m3 with lower bore axis. Glock 17 G5 mos may last me a lot longer, unless they introduce a huge improvement on the MOS system itself.
  14. Hi there I've been shooting IPSC production with CZ SP-01 shadow for some time, and want to try a striker pistol with dots. I shortlisted Walther PPQ Q4 Tac or Glock 17 Gen 5 MOS FS and would like to hear any suggestions. Both can be used for production class and could later add a dot for production optics. PPQ may have an edge with stock trigger, better stock sight but has a higher bore axis. I will work on the trigger/internals where it's legal, Glock has more mods and holster choices. They retail for the same price here. Didn't quite like the balance of Q
