  1. So if I bought one you’d pay me $1600 to $2K for it??? Wow... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Now that’s worthy of researching! Neat! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. How were the OEM sights aligned? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Ferritic Nitrocarburization is a surface conversion process and is a surface hardening process. I have some articles that I can email you. CeraKote is just a paint. It’s not very good compared to Melonite/Tuftride/Tenifer (all Nitrocarburization tradenames, btw). Parkerizing is not as durable or corrosion resistant, either. PVD coatings are thin film coatings and they are bonded but a small point load (a pointed nail) will cause the coating to fail. Glock is smart: the Melonite then use PVD (in this case some form of DLC) on top of their slide. That’s the best that I’m aware of at the moment. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Actually, nitrocarburization is the tougher, harder, more durable more salt water corrosion resistant of the two. Putting DLC atop a nitrocarburized slide is the ticket. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. That alone points to “Pistol” not necessarily “Person”. I conducted an experiment with two (2) Glock 43 pistols. One shot 3” left of POA at 5 yards/ offhand and from ransom rest. The other one shot 1” left of POA offhand and from a rest. So... (1) I switched upper assemblies (2) I switched only barrels. (2) I switched only the slides. The problem followed the lower assembly. I assume it is the locking blocks. Wherever the rear sights are drifted when the pistol is brand spanking New is where they NEED to be to be point of aim: point of impact. I used to mechanically center them and then scratch my head. I now know so I hand select them based upon where the rear sight is located in the dovetail. I’ve found Gen 5 triggers to be remarkably consistent so it’s less critical compared to, say, Gen 3 and, to some extent. Gen 4 triggers. Sold that left-shooting pistol with full disclosure to a guy who was adamant it was me. I was glad as Hell to rod myself of that craptastic plastic and began paying much closer attention to such things as the position of the Rear Sight in the dovetail. I have planned on doing another experiment with purchased locking blocks to see what differences they may make (essentially checking dimensional tolerances or variability) but it would require much more equipment and effort than I’m willing to invest and it’s not MY problem; it’s Glock’s problem.

  7. “Nitride” is far too generic a term. PVD (Physical Vapor Deposition) coatings come in many, many varieties of which W DLC is but one. There’s also TiAlN (Titanium Aluminum Nitride) and others. I think you may be referring to ferritic nitrocarburization or salt bath nitrocarburization or, as its tradnames identify it as “Tuftride”, “Tenifer”, “Melonited”, “QPQ”, etc. PVD is a COATING The latter process is a SURFACE CONVERSION PROCESS. I would coat a Melonited pistol with a PVD coating - like Glock has done with the 19X and Gen 5 pistols. I cannot think of a more durable surface than that. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. I’d have the slide bead blasted to the surface roughness you desire then have it coated with a PVD coating. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. I would collect the photos and all other evidence and place it on their FB page. They’ll respond. Trust me. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    P10F/C/S - US vs Czech mfg?

    Why not use the P-10C? You no longer need sight radius... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. What *I* would do if I were to manufacture bolts I’d make them print holding the longitudinal length to a very low tolerance. For example, the print may call out 35mm +0.1mm/-0.15mm (I’m making this up). I’d insure that the dimensions are nominally 35mm and the variance WITHIN what’s allowable. In other words, QUALITY CONTROL & QUALITY ASSURANCE. Now... what DO THEY DO? I cannot imagine them deviating from what I’ve outlayed. It would be interesting to measure, say, 10 examples of Colt, BCM, LMT, etc., bolts with statistical analysis. That would make a nice technical article. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  13. Leitner Weiss (spelling) did. Not sure if they are still operating, though. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. I’d be more confident if they solved this potential issue with the follower (fill that nasty gap with molded polymer follower). Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
