How did you end up liking the weight/balance of this bad boy with the XWF heavy open frame? I'm thinking of doing either a 5" or 5.4" build with one.

She is a heavy girl for sure...

It balance well and wield like a balance solid chunk. I need to start working out more...

And it's VERY loud!

Your gun came out BA!!! Is the builder CJ local to Atlanta? I cracked the slide on my first open gun (its an older gun), id like to get a new top end build with newer updated parts and id like to have someone local build it.

@YellowShooter, did you use a full-profile Binary 3-Port comp, or the regular profile one? I like how the tri-top extends across the entire comp and the how the lines at the bottom of the comp flow into the frame.

CJ is the KY, but I am sure he can help with your slide :)

Full profile, the Tri top was performed after the slide/barrel/comp fit and match

Awesome. I'm planning on doing the same; saw yours and was hoping you'd chime in to say it was done using a regular profile comp since they're $100 cheaper, hehe.

i want to see if the extra weight from the XWF helps for recoil

I am still playing with loads...

I make 172PF with 8.2gr of HS6 and 1.175"

 

I barely make PF with 10.4gr of Major Pistol at 1.165"

I'll crank it to 10.6gr of MP at 1.165" and I am hoping to see 169-170PF

What bullet are you using and which lot of SWMP? 115gr?

 

If you have lot 314 of SWMP, know that it shoots slower-than-normal. I have a bunch of it and am currently waiting on a response from SW to my request to exchange it for a different lot.

ahhh good to know.

 

Iam using 124gr Delta Precision JHP, new design.

 

Thank you for the info! Can you take a picture of where the lot number is found? I think mine is kinda faded lol I am not sure if I am looking at a resemblance of a lot number lol

I think its likely that you have a slow lot if its taking you 10.6gr to make PF with a 5" barrel, 2x popple holes, and a 124gr bullet at 1.165" OAL. Especially if it is a KKM barrel, as those are known to be amongst the fastest-shooting, while SV barrels are known to be slower-shooting.

 

The lot number is located to the right of the red "CAUTION":

 

The last 3 digits indicate the lot number. I believe the different lot numbers in circulation as of recent are 314, 514, and 115.

@SeattleDude was able to get his 314 lots exchanged for 115 lots. I'm trying to do the same, but I have yet to hear back after a week; sent a followup email 2 days ago so hopefully I get a response tomorrow.
