I have owned my GP6 for some years. Ordered it from STI back in the day. Love it, however, shooting primarily 1911s, I find not quite enough bite (ledge) on the thumb safety. I would like a little more surface area so my thumb more easily, consistenly, catches and disengages the safety. Anyone know of a service or gunsmith that would modify the safety latch? --Sam
I started dabbling with Production late last season after picking up a Mk7 on a pretty sweet deal. This year I'm wanting to play with Production more than my usual Limited, so I went ahead and added the 9mm to my loading setup. The kicker is that I'm setting up a load that will work in three different guns; K100 and MP9 Pro 5" mainly with a CZ P-01 for fun/back up gun. I'm aiming for 130-135PF but what I finding interesting is the results with the K100. Namely that is seems to lag behind in the higher range by a decent amount compared to the M&P and even the CZ. For some reason its just not building the speed like the others. Have others noticed anything similar? What loads are you using or tried with your K100/GP6? Here's what I've recorded so far.
