BigBamBoo Posted August 28, 2015 Share Posted August 28, 2015 So I have been shooting limited (major and minor) in USPSA and just wanted to do something different. I first thought about switching to single stack, but that just does not really excite me. Then I thought about production, but everyone shoots production. And then I was clearing out some old pictures and came across some pics of my old S&W TRR8 and it it got me thinking....hmmm. I had started shooting USPSA with the TRR8, but the rules back then made it so I had to reload after 6 rounds. And that kinda sucked doing all those standing reloads. Then I saw the S&W 929, 8 shot 9mm and just had to have one. I checked around with all the well known revolver smiths and everyone told me it would be 3-6 months to have it slicked up. I then spoke with Eli at TK Customs. Well known for their moon clips and cylinder modifications. Eli told me he could have it worked over and back to me in 2-3 weeks. Wow...much better time frame. After picking it up, I did not even shoot it. I boxed it up and sent it to TK Customs to "race it up" for me. They did an action job, installed a Apex hammer and extended firing pin, chamfered and polished the cylinders, installed a fiber optic front sight, and checked for any quality control issues. I had the gun back to me in 12 DAYS!!! I put a Houge Big Butt grip and one of 10mmDave's extended cylinder releases. I have not had a chance to shoot it yet, but dry firing it is just amazing. Out of the box the trigger was 11+ lbs and kinda gritty. Now it is at 7 lbs., and is smooth as silk. I can't wait to shoot in revolver division...heck, with so few revo shooters these days, I should be a paper GM in no time!
