Burned Out

Burned Out (10/11)

  1. Hello, if you give me a day or two I should be able to find a factory Glock one from my Gen 5 G17. Thanks, Eric
  2. Hello, I use Mobil 1 car oil on all metal guide rods. Two small drops and spread it with your fingers or a Q-tip. Thanks, Eric
  3. Hello, glad you solved the problem. Thanks, Eric
  4. Hello, the dog eared rear sights are great for fast target acquisition and give you extra room on the sides for transitions. My eyes find the notch faster with these types of sights. Thanks, Eric
  5. Hello, I have shot a stock gen 5 G34 and also a lightened slide gen 5 G34 and for me I actually liked the weight of the stock slide setup on the G34. Saying that, I prefer a gen 5 G17 more for carry optics if you take the time to set it up correctly. I would shoot it and see if it suits your type of shooting and remember that a slide mounted optic will add weight to the rear of the slide. Thanks, Eric
  6. Hello, try 4.1 grains of Tite Group. It should be good to go. Thanks, Eric
  7. Hello, check the feed lips on your magazines. It could be that your rounds are hitting the slide stop. Also check your grip screws to make sure they are tight. Also check your grip to see if it is cracked. Thanks, Eric
  8. Hello, are your followers the type that activate the slide stop? If they are then either grind the followers so they don't hit the slide stop or grind the slide stop so the follower does not hit the slide stop. You can also look at the detent spring and see if it is shorter. I grind the slide stop so that the follower doesn't hit or even a round could activate it. Thanks, Eric
  9. Hello, I have been shooting my G17 gen 5 quite a bit. If you set the pistol up I find I don't need the extra weight. I am using a heavy Jentra tungsten G34 guide rod I cut back to fit flush with the G17 slide. Wolff 13lb recoil spring. Carver brass magwell insert. That is all I am using and can get some pretty quick splits at 7 yards with the shots stacking on each other. For me I don't see a need to add any extra weight. Do some testing and see what actually works for you using a timer. Thanks, Eric
  10. Hello, I don't think you will have much value there. The bast way to sell it would be to part it out. Sell the grip, magwell, and frame seperately. Sell the barrel and other parts as well. As a complete setup maybe $800 which is a guesstimate. I would rebuild the top end in 9mm and sell off the 38SC parts. Thanks, Eric
  11. Hello, get one from Jentra not the Glock store. There regular tungsten guide rod from the Glock Store is brass and tungsten and I am not sure how much of it is really tungsten. Thanks, Eric
  12. Hello, a Gen 3 captured guide rod will not be long enough for a Gen 5 G34 or G17 as you have found out. I think they are referring to their extended G34 Gen 3 guide rod not the captured Gen 3 one. Thanks, Eric
  13. Hello, I think the gen 4 guide rod they are using is the uncaptured one with the adapter. Thanks, Eric
  14. Hello, get the Safariland USPSA kit and make an aluminum adapter for the Blade Tech hole pattern and you will have a holster setup that is very ajustable. Or buy a Safariland holster to fit your pistol setup and attach the USPSA kit. Don't be affraid to modify the holster or attachment. Make it fit your needs. Thanks, Eric
  15. Hello, I was wondering what connecter you guys are using with the Timney trigger? I have tried the "-", dot and a Lone Wolf so far. I have a couple more that I will try next week. Thanks, Eric
