    I have not found any downside to the 9mm conversion. Mine uses a different recoil spring, 9-10lb vs. 15lb for the .38 super. I also have a separate spring plug and guide for each. I use 9mm specific...

    Same here. I have a 9 x 19 conversion for my .38 super auto. Which gives me a 3 caliber pistol, .38SA, 9mm and .22lr with a new top end.

    I was disappointed with the pick of the 320 for the US and then the problems with drop safe came up.. Now the CAF chooses the 320, is there something I'm missing? Is it largely based on price?

    I tried it with my Colt .38 super. It worked just fine as long as I kept it clean. But at higher round counts [over 1000 rnds] it became quite gummy/pasty with dirt, etc., and slowed the slide down...

    It's a real thing for me. Two LMT lowers, one bought in 2011, the other 2016. The older lower has no issues with G1,2,3 pmags. With the younger lower the P1 pmags have to forced in and pulled out,...

    Interesting. I like my Aimpoint + magnifier set up and it is very much like an Elcan, 1X or 3X, take your pick. One good point would be that if one fails it does not render the other useless. I don't...
