    FWIW, I had the same issue with factory PX4 sights for the same reason. Once I replaced them with the Ameriglo CAP sights, the problem went away.

    I see how that could've been read that way, my fault for poor phrasing. The square FPS slows the slide down on the way back, so the slide doesn't have as much velocity on the way back forward.

    I'm too irreverent to be a reverend. :) The "rev" refers to revolver, which was my weapon of choice until I drank the Givens Koolaid. As you can see here, I haven't completely abandoned them.

    I use the Ameriglo sights on my three full-size PX4s. I'm 67, so I need that big orange blob on the front.

    The factory sights are mounted extremely securely. A lot of folks have had a lot of...

    When I carry a revolver, it's a 4" M10-8 in a JMCK OWB#1. My 681-2 fits it too. One of these days I'll get another J frame...

    Not that I'm aware of. To the best of my knowledge, it's due to an overly-strong recoil spring causing the slide to slam forward harder than intended.

    JTQ - I've read that and considered it. I decided against going that route because a) there are no non-boutique light-bullet loads on Doc's list and b) my other two .45 ACP guns, an M&P and an S&W...

    I was using an 18.5 lb. ISMI recoil spring, already had the other stuff on it. IIRC, 18.5 lbs. is factory spec for hardball-equivalent loads for Commanders. I had tried the 20 lb. spring before and...

    Well, I finally got my Commander to run with eight-rounders. It took a 20 lb. recoil spring, full power mainspring, and mostly-square-edged firing pin stop. The problem was feeding the last round,...

    ...or a hammer (Sig, Beretta, CZ), or a thumb safety (1911, M&P), or at least a long DA first shot (various). Of course, none of these are idiot-proof, but at least they're idiot-resistant.

    +1. And his teaching style is such that you think about how to do it better next time, rather than thinking "I'm a dumbass" at the end of a scenario. Much recommended!

    That Guy - Current S&B 124-grain ball runs around 1100 fps from my 4" PX4. That's faster than US-produced ball but slower than NATO-spec.

    It's probably been 15 years since Safariland made N frame speedloaders in any caliber. I've got one each in .357 and .44.

    +1. In my guns, the difference between 124-grain +P HST and 124-grain Winchester NATO-spec is ~20 fps (advantage HST)...AKA not enough to matter.

    You've obviously been around here longer than I have. And I am SO not touching that last sentence! LOL
