  1. I just got a rimfire Beretta, 92FSR, and for fun, I'm seeing what other real steel Beretta parts will fit on it to improve it. It is said to be a full size replica of the 92, and I've already put a "D" main spring in it, and put some aftermarket G10 grips on it. My rimfire one has a captured guide rod/recoil spring, and the 92A1 and m9A1 have one that looks very similar, before I spend the money on one, I was hoping someone out there with either of these guns could go and measure the diameter where the spring rides and the head diameter that seats in the frame against the take down lever.
  2. i recently bought a smith & wesson sd40 ve and did not really like the plastic guide rod, i have always had metal guide rods before so i purchased a aftermarket stainless steel quide rod with 15lb recoil spring. i know the oem spring is 18lbs but i figured if i used a lower grain rd like a wwb 165gr fmj it may lessen the recoil and get back on target by cycling faster. am i correct in my assumptions? if not what ammo do you think i should use with that setup? or should i just switch the oem spring onto the steel rod?

  4. I recently installed a stainless steel guide rod in my G23 and the point of impact is now 5-6 inches low. Has anyone else encountered this? And what can I do to fix it. Other than that the gun runs great.
  5. Folks, I recently decided to install Bruce Gray's spring pack, trigger, and guide rod into my IDPA gun, a Sig 226 Scorpion. First off-Mods, if this belongs in gunsmithing, please move to the appropriate forum. Second-if you attempt this, you assume all liability for work done. Always ensure your firearms are unloaded before attempting any work. This is not meant to be a step by step guide, merely a review with some observations as I conducted the work myself. This gun has an untold number of rounds through it. I had originally anticipated sending it to Bruce Gray, who performed his work o
  6. How many out there have experimented with different weighted recoil springs in the M&P? Recently I purchased a 5" Tungsten un-captured guide rod, a 17#, 15#, 13# and an 11# recoil spring to go in the 9L pro (non-ported) and the 9L PC CORE. Went to shoot those tonight and was a little let down that magic didn't happen...not really but was hoping to see some improvements for follow up shots. Here is what I did learn; 9L (non-ported) 11# spring too light 13# spring too light 15# spring worked real nice 17# (factory weight) felt the same but with less muzzle rise, more than likely to do with
  7. My 1911 Para 16-40 has a bull-barrel and reverse full-length guide rod plug. It keeps beating up guide rod plugs. It starts with peening the lip of the plug, progresses to the point where the tunnel goes out of round, and binds with the recoil spring. Left long enough, the plug splits along it's length. I am on my 4th plug. I had the slide mating-surface milled square, as the peening always happens on the same side, but it keeps re-occurring. I have also tried filing the mating surfaces of the slide to remove rough edges. I'm not sure it is due to sloppy assembly after field-stripping,
  8. Installing a Guide Rod Spring onto a Guide Rod. What a chore . Was following what was posted at Youtube, on how to install a Guide Rod Spring onto a Guide Rod. What a workout. Never did get this thing installed. Did launch the spring across the room once..lol. This is a Glock 22 slide, Wolff Uncaptured Guide Rod, Gen3 to Gen4 Rod Adapter and Wolff Round Wound Springs. So I used a simple crimping tool, compress the spring and grab the end of the rod and insert into Guide Rod Adapter (don't let go and hold tight). I compress the spring by hand and not with the tool. Once the spring is low e
  9. Hi Guys, I've made a few more guide rods: Gen. 4 for the G20, G21 and G41, and also a "Heavy" rod for the G34, G35, G20, G21 and G41. The "Heavy" rod is a larger diameter to add some weight, and will only run the Wolff springs (not ISMI or stock). I'm a Stage Sponsor again this year at the Area 7, and for the first time in too many years I'm actually going to shoot! Thanks for your continued support, I'm always trying to keep everything in stock and we're in good shape now. Oh, and FREE SHIPPING when you order between 7/4 and 7/11 if you use coupon code FREEDOM Thanks, Billy

  11. I'm considering trying IDPA and I'm learning about my new P320 and was thinking I would be entering Stock Service Pistol (SSP). My P320 is chambered in 40 S&W and I've been learning about creating a load for it with a Power Factor of about 135. It has been suggested that with a 135 Pf i would probably need to change the guide rod and spring from aftermarket supplier and the spring would be of lighter duty. If I were to change to the suggested guide rod and spring would this eliminate me from SSP? I copied this rule from another thread: 8.2.1.3.4. Recoil spring guide rods and d
  12. Hi all, With the wealth of knowledge on this forum, I am sure someone can answer this question. I want to add a full length guide rod to my 75B which would require drilling the slide. My question is, Would this be production legal? This modification would be obvious externally with the drilled slide, but would be no different than SP-01s and Shadows that have the full length guide rod already. The rule book classifies guide rods as "internal" parts even tho they are externally visible. The main reason I am considering this is that reassembly with lighter recoil springs is a pain with the 2 in
