Thread: 10mm field pistol -- FN and G5 20

  1. #11
    Just dry firing, the recoil spring feels quite a bit heavier than in previous Gen 10mm pistols!

    I installed CHPWS low height BUIS sights. The front sight flipped around either side of plum, and I had to do some Kentucky windage with my thumb to get it reasonably straight as I tightened the front sight retaining screw. Rear sight took some hammering as my standard Glock rear sight tool wouldn't work with the larger G20 slide. Putting a few coats of white and then orange paint on the front sight.

    Used a CHPWS EPS MOS plate to mount a six moa red EPS full size. The Wheeler laser says the EPS and plate was within an inch or so at 25 yards as everything came out of the package. I figured 10mm will be a good test of the optic and plate. My backup plan is a TD plate and an Acro, and if this pistol makes it to field use, that is likely what it will end up dotted with.

    Will let it cure overnight and then do initial shooting with 100 rounds of S&B before going to the Underwood.
    I have an EPS sitting on the shelf, and a Gen4 20 with no dot. I had considered getting the slide milled direct for the EPS, but wasn't sure if the EPS and top mounted screws were up to the task. I look forward to seeing how yours holds up.

    I put an RMR 06 on my G20.5 MOS - mostly because I had the optic and an FCD Glock MOS plate.

    This was the first shot at 10 yards.

    Nah, needs three clicks or so down so you won't be high at 25 yards!

    On two different scales, the still new trigger measures just under five pounds. The grip cavity seems smaller than on a 17, as the grip plugs from a 17 won't fit -- maybe that was part of keeping the grip smaller.

    Heading to the range soon, looking forward to initial shooting impressions. Handling it, the pistol feels large, and enough bigger than a 19 that it is really noticeably larger. I wish the slide had deeper serrations on the front sides and on top, like a Maple Leaf Duty cut, as it is a bear to rack the slide. With cold/wet hands, I imagine it will be even harder to rack. I ordered the mag shims and extra power mag springs from 460Rowland.com, recommended by Clusterfrack, but am hoping the gun runs without them. Metal mags in the FN may be an advantage in a heavy recoiling pistol.
