dovetail adapter plate for Venom on Advantage Arms .22lr conversion

Recommended Posts

I've recently started shooting Carry Optics for Steel Challenge, and wanted to duplicate the sight picture with my .22lr Advantage Arms practice upper (G17 with Apex trigger)... installed a DPP 7075-T6  dovetail adapter plate for a spare Venom... the added weight puts the already marginal function combination at risk... it does make you hold the pistol securely... I removed the end retainer of the captured factory spring to give the spring a little more travel... the original spring wire is .033".... I replaced it with a .0355" wire of the same length in an attempt to return it to battery better, but could not get it to cycle when  shortening it at the range, coil at a time... I get better function (nearly 100 per cent) if the magazines are downloaded to 5 round to lessen the drag on the slide...other than milling away some  weight do any of you have a suggestion?...ammo is CCI Blazer that works well in my SW M41 and my AR .22lr uppers... thank you
