    According to my notes (and HKPro's TooSixy's exceptionally useful chart), Todd went with the Light firing pin block spring, the Heavy trigger return/rebound spring, and remained with the Standard...

    Nice snark, but at least for me the answer is a bit more nuanced. The key aspects of LEM is the longer DAO triggerpull, combined with visible hammer movement, combined with a relatively light...

    My personal choice/recommendation is for Langdon LTT G10s, although the WC and VZ alternatives are also excellent (all three are made by VZ).

    I believe you'll find that a better solution for short fingers and Beretta 92s is achieved with ultra-thin grips, as opposed to the short-reach trigger; apparently while it works, the geometry of the...

    The box sticker leads me to believe that the upgrades are exemplary of fortitious parts bin engineering, as opposed to a special order SKU. Best, Jon

    The instructor for the Glock Armorers Course I fairly recently took specifically favorably called out ATEi as doing good work.

    GJM, thanks for the head's up on the P320 Compact and the mounting screw interfering with the extractor leading directly to malfs; I'll watch for that after installing my inbound protective Romeo1's...

    Excellent choice-they'll provide a better grip and more plunger tube support. And they should look pretty decent on your blued 1991.

    As a correlated aside, last week I very easily zeroed the Romeo5 RDS that SIG provided for the M400 Tread AR15 that was part of my NSSF Gearbox win. Nice basic AR (and SIG very heavily upgraded mine...

    As Robinson mentioned, Colt is somewhat famous these days for coming up with some interesting tangents off their base models. They seem to make enough of them to warrant a special entry at Bud's as...

    If you want some immediate gratification that'll take you back to that Python trigger, try a Beretta 92D-out of the box. And then add a LTT triggerbar and a Wilson Combat 14# mainspring (some go as...

    Just re-read/read this entire thread. A little more emotional than most p-f threads, but some good discussion.

    I've found that a segment of mountain bike innertube on the receiver, cut so that it's covering most of the gripping area works well. It provides superior gripping, doesn't tend to move, and is much...

    My thought at this point is that adding a RDS could be an ideal pairing given the VP40's superb ergonomics, but I really don't have sufficient time on the P320 Compact RX to give a fair comparison...

  18. Update After 26 Oct IDPA Match

    Well, properly zeroing made a world of a difference (shocker, I know). Yesterday, I shot one of my better matches of the year with the now more synched-in gun (arguably the gun was just fine, the...
  19. Shooting Experiences With SIG P320 RX Compact With OEM Romeo1 RDS

    Thanks to the fortuitous largess of the NSSF and SIG-Sauer, I recently won a NSSF Gearbox from SIG-Sauer, whose largesse impressed me. Essentially, gun-wise, I got a P320 RX Compact, inherently...

    I'd recommend a Glock G17 for a "one and only" gun, but you'd hardly be going wrong with a G19, G45, G19X, or G48.

    An obvious suggestion would be to spend some range time, preferably with each,...

    Use of a magazine as a single-action speedloader (ok, we'll be realistic: A not so slow loader...) is an underrated technique. For 9mm and .45 ACP, things are pretty straightfoward: Simply use a...
