Hey Guys, So I've been trying to locate a gunsmith who can/will mill out my Grand Power X-cal or K100 slide for a Shield RMS. (Carry Optics) I know there are Eliason style mounts out there (for x-cal) that I have found from reading others posts: http://www.customguns.co.uk/shop-page/4580285375/grand-power-k22-xtrim-minisight-mount/9700063 http://www.egwguns.com/pistol-scope-mounts/optima/jp-mount-for-colt-gold-cup/ But that isn't really the route that I'd like to go. Milling would get the dot lower and would be a more secure mount than the above options. I contacted the company who did the Gold K100 job 2 years ago and was turned down because he said the slide is just not ideal for a red dot. I understand the geometry/lack of material to work on etc so I get that. However after seeing that it's been done successfully, I don't see why it cant be done again. They are such awesome shooters I think it would make them even more fun. So if anyone knows any gunsmiths who are able or willing to do this job please let me know. I'm sure other people are just as interested and I would really appreciate a referral to a professional!
I just recently purchased a Grand Power XCalibur Mk12. It appears that there are only two types of recoil springs available on the Eagle Imports site: a "Light" spring (black, cylindrical-wire style spring), and what I imagine is the "Regular" or "Heavy" weight spring (red, flat-wire style spring). I've got the following questions: Which of these two springs is appropriate for typical factory/range ammo (i.e. not +p or +p+)? I would be interested in experimenting with a wider range of spring weights, but it seems eagle imports only provides two. Is there another type of spring that will work well with the XCalibur? For example, will springs for a full size 1911 work? In general, in terms of extending the lifespan of your firearm, is it "best practice" to use the heaviest possible spring that will still reliably cycle a particular type of ammunition? My impression is that this is the case, since it will prevent frame battering...however, is it also the case that using an unnecessarily heavy spring will cause damage/increased wear due to the fact that the slide is slamming back into battery with an excessive amount of force? Or is this just nonsense? Thanks in advance for the help y'all. And by the way: My initial impressions XCalibur are incredibly positive. I am just over-the-top impressed with this gun, and I'd recommend to just about anyone.
Hello, I have a question for Grand Power X-Calibur Mark 12 (the one with two tabs for takedown, not pull trigger guard down takedown) and the DAA PDR PRO II holster owners -- does the X-Cal fit well? I've just received my DAA PDR PRO II for X-Cal and it looks like it's been moulded/sized for the smaller frame Mark7 gun rather than the larger Mark12. I'm soliciting feedback from the others to see if I should: 1. Fix the holster with the new rubber grommets 2. Return it for exchange 3. Return it for refund PS. I know Red Hill Tactical makes a superb holster for X-Calibur and I have one as well, but for this specific purpose I need the DAA one.
