Thanks for the photos.  That's one of those things that would tickle my OCD too but I'm sure it's a non issue.

I got everything installed today. 

 

I was a bit concerned last night because the slide was no where close to closing during the vertical recoil spring test with the 13 lb. ISMI spring.  I put in the 4.5 lb. striker spring today and all is well with the 13 lb. spring.  It almost passes with the 11 lb. spring.

 

Weights for those interested - G34.5

Rod = 1.76 oz

Rod, adapter and 13 lb. spring = 2.11 oz

Thug plug = 1.48 oz

Pistol, DPP and items above = 28.22 oz

Pistol and an empty +5/+6 TTI mag = 32.52 oz

Loaded with 24 147's = 44.09 oz

I thought about trying the 11lb in practice. it shouldn't be an issue.  I mean, nobody runs around with the muzzle pointed straight up. I would think it would stay in battery. Though the inertia from rumnig may pop it out.  Then I just tell myself the 13 lb isn't hurting my scores.

Went to the range today and tried shooting dot torture. The smaller targets made it obvious that I still have a low left issue that evidently I’ve been ignoring on larger targets. I really need more live fire practice.

The 13 lb spring seems to have cured the short stroking that I was having with the factory recoil spring and 130ish PF 147’s. The gun also ran fine with the 11 lb spring.

It does still short stroke when I load 23 in the TTI equipped mags. I need to figure that out and I’ll be set with this new pistol.
