    I'm flattered you guys think so.

    The specific answer here is that without testing your specific gun with the specific ammo in question that way, you won't know for sure.

    This right here.

    I pick up green much better than red because of how my eyes work. So I greatly prefer green optics. I have to use more power on red optics to see them reliably in bright light.

    Indeed.

    You also need to take a hard look at your physiology. When I get into a #2 position, the muzzle of the pistol is about a foot from my right eye. I don't want a compensator or porting...

    Right.

    The Nordic tube's physical dimensions leave 7 shells smashed into each other with the spring fully compressed, leaving nowhere for impact and vibration to go except into the shells. So for...

    On the factory magazine tube, with the magazine loaded to max capacity there's still a bit less than 1/2 a shell worth of play. So you can easily keep 5 in the gun as there's more room for...

    That's a good question...one I'm not qualified to answer.

    I can say that the steels used in most revolvers is extremely mild. I'm not sure what heat treating they are using/used on the barrels or...

    It appeared to be packed with bullets from muzzle to breach. Removing that much lead would likely damage the barrel badly enough to make it a pointless endeavor.

    I figured as much looking at pictures of them. It's a shame because the beavertail on their grip does a good job of shielding my hand from Glock slide bite.

    I've never felt the need to leave anti-seize (because that's what it is) on parts of my handguns. If the chances of galling are that high it's a materials and manufacture issue that anti-seize isn't...

    It seems to be keeping the mag spring happy and it prevents any possible issue charging the gun due to user-induced fuckup as a result of attempting to shove that extra shell on the lifter....

    The Nordic spring appropriately trimmed works great.

    The factory spring works well in the +2 extension also.

    Nordic's springs have given me good service, although they do need to be properly trimmed.

    How the spring is made is the key there. Most shotgun magazine springs are made as cheaply as possible. Meaning that as a general rule, you shouldn't be counting on them having been made right in the...

    Generally speaking keeping the magazine spring completely compressed leads to a shorter service life for that spring. Not a big deal if you change it regularly, but if it's getting toward the "iffy"...
