    My familiarity with (and association with) Check-Mate dates subsequent to the introduction of the dry-film magazines (the first production run of which was 02/04).

    As many of you know, I'm one of...

    I've personally experienced derivative benefits with other platforms/actions in conjunction with LEM use. LEM/DAO actions force, if nothing else, a more focused attention to triggerpull and the...

    I think the best, most likely to be drama-free and excellent performing .40s out of the box are HKs.

    True, but then again, as long as you judiciously lube, replace the springs and locking block on the 92 at prescribed (or even more conservative) intervals, and periodically clean out the extractor...

    I agree that low market prices as opposed to true desire for the .40 over 9mm, etc. are probably significantly driving current .40 acquisitions.

    A couple of my thoughts:

    1. I strongly...

    Ruger's Customer Service is superb. They're noted not only for fixing the immediate problem, but for going the extra mile, and doing the entire job expeditiously.

    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...

    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...

  25. Update After 26 Oct IDPA Match
