    At risk of stating the obvious, if you push in slightly on the mainspring cap, it takes the tension off the retaining pin, making the R&R described above easier.

    30274 ejector worked great on my 2010 PPU-prefix G19, with no changes to the stock extractor or springs.

    Sample of one and all, so FWIW.

    In the comments on the gunnuts page, the author states, "mainly failing no go gauges on the chamber and bent barrels"

    I agree that's still not much information to go on.

    That many rifles being deadlined makes me wonder if someone doesn't know the difference between a no-go gauge and a field gauge.

    I saw that happen on a fairly large scale a few years ago, with a...

    To me, that alone represents a very significant change, and I'm not surprised you saw a very noticeable shift.



    Not surprising to couple MOA worth of change there as well. Individual rifles...

    Epoxy filler selection

    Perusing some grip reduction/texturing/stock work threads here and elsewhere on the internet, it appears that the four most commonly used epoxy fillers are:

    - Marine-Tex

    IIRC, I've put 30274's in four Gen3 9mm's (two 17's, and 2 19's), all with good results. Ejection was still weak with bulk ammo, but a lot less likely to hit me in the face. Better results with...
