  1. I see what you found but if you look at the guide rod I stated I am dealing with it does not fit this as it is "thicker" by their words, basically its oversized in Diameter. Again I'm no Glock expert but I do not see why this would be needed as in my older G34 I ran a tungsten guide rod without any such adapter for years without issue. The spring literally conforms around the guide rod. I think at this point I'm just going to return it and either get the "normal" if you will tungsten rod or go with another DPM kit as they seem to work headache free.
  2. Thx for all the replies. I have tried inserting a loaded mag with snap caps and the movement all but disappeared. I have looked and read on the website from Glockstore and found no information about any adapter needed to run their spring. It is a guide rod/spring package sold together. The spring is quite large and just barely fits the shallow recess in the nose of the slide, so it's certainly under good compression and not loose once installed. I'll look up the Jentra and make a decision this week while I'm still in the window for return. I appreciate the help as Glock internals are not somet
  3. Just received my Uncaptured pure tungsten guide rod with 13lb spring from Glockstore and installed it. When I pull the trigger the barrel makes a slight drop movement and the slide can be seen moving rearward as the trigger is pulled. The trigger will then break. This is NIB gun with no modes except change in the guide rod as mentioned. I'm no Glock mechanic so what is going on here? Replacing The factory spring shows no movement in barrel or slide during trigger pull. Can some of you Glock wizards offer insight as to what the problem is and or solutions. By solutions I do not mean telling me
  4. I'm just hearing about this now?!?! So used cleaning solution is dangerous? Guess I won't be rinsing brass out while in the tub anymore...although that might explain the voices I've been hearing telling me to go all in on .40cal
  5. Thx for all the input guys, there is definitely more than one way to skin this cat!! I have seen factory ammo is tumbled after loading for polish, my concern is about 1/2 of the 9's I'm going to load are using Blue Bullets. I wonder if I went the tumble after loading route what tumbling would do to the coating? I have to say back when I started IPSC shooting 20yrs ago reloading was pretty straight forward, now having taken a break and getting back into it I feel like I need an Associates degree in Mechanical Applications LOL!
  6. OK I didn't clarify my question, do you clean the brass after running it through the sizing die BEFORE loading powder/primer/bullet? I know you need to clean dirty fired brass. I'm asking about after lube is applied.
  7. Did you clean the brass prior to loading or after loaded?
  8. Over last 10 years I've loaded 10's of thousands of .38/.357 rds on 550b press without issue. You will get great results with either press 550/750.
  9. It's a well made press with a huge loyal following. The reloading market is booming with new reloaders joining the fray daily. I'd price it at what you want maybe a touch higher and then see what attention you get. On any given day the right buyer might be there for you. You can always lower the price in time if it doesn't move.
  10. Reading This had me wondering about mine so I had to go look. Both are able to see the dot edge to edge.
  11. I agree, I feel Black front sight is cleaner on target but FO is easier to see especially when moving. The problem I have is when its a tight shot my eye feels like its bouncing back and forth between the bright FO center and the black edge. It may sound odd but I've noticed it practicing. It's like one of those dang things once you see it you can't unsee it lol.
  12. It would be interesting to see when they publish equipment data for Nationals in Front sight if they did a poll and asked how many use both eyes open vs 1 eye. Then break that data down again by class GM, M, A, etc.
  13. I'm pretty sure this would be an instant regret having Epoxy based adhesive on your hands. There are multiple problems with this including some possible toxicity issues.
  14. I've read that guys are lubing 9mm brass and I'm new to this having previously lubed only rifle cases, not pistol cases. I've seen different methods for lubing but my question is, is anyone taking a step to remove lube once applied after loading or not? If so what method? Any input is appreciated.
