  3. Finally got to shoot my new to me used 2011 style frame with sti slide 3 port comp. This is not a I need x power factor. The short oal is for my cz shadow 2 that is also getting a comp barrel on order. Started with 1.13 oal 124 grain berry round nose win 231 4.0 gr . Shot about the same as. 1.13 oal 124 grain berry round nose win 231 4.3 gr . Ejection was maybe 2 - 3 feet from gun. Couple stove pipes not enough power to work the slide. This is with a taylor tactical 8 # recoil spring then quickly went to the 7 # spring same thing. Wolf variable
  4. The pistol was on g broker in Phoenix 1/2 hour drive from me so I looked at it and bought it impulse. The owner said it was a custom build from accuracy unlimited az. My local gunsmith said it locks up tight looks good about sub 2 # trigger. I expressed my concerns about alum frame etc. We talked about oil for the frame. Barrel says .355 so only .355 ? cant go .356 ? opinions vary depends who is asked forums etc. Asking here. I like the left side of the safety for a thumb ride, I am accidently engaging the right side. I have not fired it yet. Will be happy to grind that off. Or ord
  5. I ordered these in a couple different lengths https://www.boltdepot.com/Metric_set_screws_Allen_Cone_point_Alloy_steel_black_oxide_finish_5mm_x_0.8mm.aspx?Selected=25490 . https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B072FBTP4H/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 also bought assortment of these no drilling maybe a flat spot with a file or Dremel. https://www.boltdepot.com/Metric_set_screws_Allen_Knurled_cup_point_Alloy_steel_black_oxide_finish_5mm_x_0.8mm.aspx?Selected=25615 I've read many posts talking about Loctite and maybe something overlooked is auto
  6. I ordered the barrel 1/2x28 tpi . I am leaning towards this 5 port https://stores.sjcguns.com/sjc-9mm-compensator-5-port-aluminum/ . Any other options for that thread size ? I should install the barrel first before I buy anything. another candidate https://www.archonmfg.com/archon-mfg-glock-compensator-1-2-28-9mm-black-anodize/ . update I ordered the sjc 5 port. actually its 3 ports on top 2 on the side.
  7. can I see some pics of custom comps? and how did this comp not yours appear to break ?
  8. https://stores.sjcguns.com/sjc-major-9mm-11-port-aluminum-compensator/ . I know thats for a glock but i can have a gap. Getting the comp reamed aligned so the bullet goes straight through? Drilling and tapping for set screws so the comp wont twist? Or a locking nut that may not hold? All of these are either out of stock or will not fit https://speedshooter.com/product-category/compensator/ . Then theres these 3 options after the barrel is fitted its a done deal no more problems. https://barsto.com/product/cz-shadow-shadow2-9mm-extended-ported/ . Im thinking the mill cut 3
  9. I really want a comp for my shadow 2. Im not going to shoot competition. I like shooting steel plates.I can reload with my dillon 750 so enough gas to get the comp to work will be a fun project. What thread size is the most popular? and can someone recommend a comp? CZ custom quoted me 150 bucks to fit the barrel and test fire it. They said barsto barrel. I think I can do that myself. https://barsto.com/product/cz-shadow-shadow2-9mm-extended-threaded/ . I keep looking at this https://eaacorp.com/product/witness-elite-gold-team/ in 9mm . Im thinking a couple minutes to swap o
  10. Shadow 2 insert loaded mag on an open slide from firing then slide goes forward into battery sometimes. Does not seem to happen with empty mag at home I tried moving slide release down a bit before inserting empty mag. I now have some some snap caps so will give that a try. Maybe it is because I am using lower recoil spring? Too much oil on parts? Berry 124 rn 3.8 grain win 231 light and easy target loads. Also is it normal that my brass ejects directly to the right of me ? Its about 6-8 feet. 90 to 110 degrees thanks
  11. holster for shadow 2 frame optic mount? I do not shoot any competitions. I have my shadow 2 equipped with czc frame mount with burris ff3. . My thumb rest is coming soon http://www.fire-4-effect.com/F4E-ENHANCED-THUMBREST-FOR-CZ-TAC-SPORT_p_272.html so there is no way a conventional holster will work.
