Grand Power X-Calibur: technical discussion

Recommended Posts

I looked sights are there no springs it is a k100 x trim not an x calibur so I have cut down a mother spring I have for now it was a 13 pound spring shortened a bit.

Odd that those are coming with the red spring now. I wonder if Eagle would mail you the stock X-Cal spring, or one of the blue flat-wounds (if they have them)? I think a CZ or Tanfoglio spring, clipped as necessary, would do the job just fine, of course.

Anyhoo, I got my X-Cal out again yesterday and got some more rounds down it. Academy had Monarch ammo back in stock, so I tried using some of it. It was brass-cased; I don't know if the primers are the same as their steel-cased (hardest primers I've ever seen in commercial 9mm; hard than Tula, even), but they are still quite hard.

As a point of comparison, my SD gun is a Sig P290, which is totally fine with any quality ammo...all SD JHP's work fine, Winchester White Box, Federal/American Eagle, ect all work fine. I've had like one or two light strikes with Blazer. Monarch ALWAYS, without fail, takes two hits to go bang.

My X-Cal (with the shortened hammer spring) had one light strike out of a 50rnd box of Monarch. Then switched to Blazer, which was flawless. Was surprised and impressed...my hammer is SO easy to manipulate, yet it still has enough inertia for 100% reliability with all but the worst of ammo.

I have spoke with Eagle, they will call when they get some in stock. Until then i have a cut down CZ 11 pound spring in the gun. I'm going to guess I'll end up at 8 or 9 pounds with this gun and my competition loads. It's pretty amazing I can't wait to tear into the internals and get it slicked up!

Does anyone know what the width of the optic fiber used on the front sight?

Mine is lost, so no means to measure.

I have a feeling it is .060 but I need confirmation.

Thanks!

.060 is freaking narrow

Typically a "narrow" front sight is .090"

He's refering to the diameter of the pipe, not the width of the sight.

Gotcha

No worry :)

The FO seems to be pretty standard. I just hate seeing it fly at the very beginning of a match and realize I have no replacement. Good thing that we are a good bunch and usually I can find someone who has FO but I hate being the beggar.

Just got my basepads in from Springer Precision and thought I'd post a pic as I hadn't seen one yet. Fit and finish on them is excellent and I really like the additional weight and the color.

I've seen that holster before. I have the same pads.

Cool--small world. So, you're RedHillTactical I take it?

Holster works great. Going to mount it on a BOSS Hanger when it gets here on Monday.

Mine are in the mail. I ordered red. Because I live in a red state :)

But I will still use strips of 3m tread tape. I have a huge roll to go through.

Has Blade Tech even made a holster at all?

You can get 10 round mags from the importer. They are the dimpled but uncut variety.

We've talked about that a few times but right now with 15-round mags at $20 a pop it's not exactly talked about any longer.

You need to call Eagle Imports at 732-493-0333, ask for Matthew.
