Hey guys, I keep accidentally hitting the mag release on my Gen4 Glock 35 and dropping mags. Doesn't happen during live/dry fire, but it keeps happening when I'm running around a match I'm guessing my support hand either moves up/forward or I squeeze too hard being all amped up, and I end up releasing the mag -- only reason I don't end up scattering mags across the range like a horse dropping poop all over the place is because I'm gripping the gun firm enough that the mag won't drop Glock is 100% OEM/stock, except for sights and a powder puff recoil spring Have any of you had personal experiences with this problem and, even better, fixing it? Potential fixes I've thought about: 1) Move support hand lower or backward -- I don't like this, as I like to Vogel-power-clench my Glock as high/forward as possible to help control recoil better 2) Change/modify mag release -- my short thumb already has a hard time reaching for the mag release when I DO want to spit that mag out; also, I'm concerned doing so will kick me outta USPSA Production Would appreciate any thoughts/comments. Thanks!
Got a new M&P 22 compact last night and did a little breaking in today. Like most semi-auto 22s I've experience with it is a little finicky on ammo. I shot 869 rounds through it - mostly as fast as I could pull the trigger. No issues with minimags, aguila super extra, aguila super maximum and Remington viper ammo. It choked on Winchester 1650 fps non-lead bullets (20-30% FTF, FTE). It had a few stumbles on American Eagle 1100 fps ammo. It ran like a raped ape on the higher velocity ammo though. I'm not concerned about the performance on the lower velocity ammo as I run at least minimags for steel challenge. Overall quite happy with both performance and accuracy. Got it for $259 at Palmetto State Armory ($17 shipping and $10 transfer). I should have waited for free shipping this weekend... I've ordered an M&P 9 from GrabAGun for $410 (free ship this weekend) and with the $10 transfer this sounds like a good deal. I've already ordered the Apex competition kit for it so I'll get it match ready right away. Thinking about sights next. Anybody have any experience with the Dawson adjustable rear sight?
