    I never ran into that problem because between the verticality of it (and pushing every DA shot low, badly) and the weird/unsettling flex/squish I would get when clamping down to try to prevent that...

    The problem I ran into the E2 grip was it is very vertical. Probably wouldn't be an issue on a short pull gun in SA mode, a 1911, like that...but a DA gun with that grip angle does NOT work for me,...

    ACRO?

    Does anyone know if the LTT crew figured out how to mount a 509T or ACRO to their RDO cut guns? I'm finally in a spot where I can order an RDO PX4 or 92 Elite...but I also want to throw an ACRO on...

    It's not so much blown out of proportion as it's an issue that still happens...I bought a used M11A1 a couple years ago that was an early run, and it had that exact same problem. Would not extract...

    They did! I got lucky enough to find one of them a few years ago. The model was 220R-45-SBSS, and it was in the same 37B prefix as the 220 10mms, same front checkering, etc.

    Depends on the safety. The C&S paddle in my BHP has a nice clicky on/off like a 1911. I'd be surprised if Springfield didn't make their safety with detents for a similar feel.
