I put in opening bids on them thinking I would easily get out bid..... that didn’t work out to well for me.
Oh, I have 1 or 2 guns from that concept too. Now, if I could get a PPQ Q5 that way... OH YEAH!

Re: Non-sticker grip mods

Hogue Handall Large Tactical Grip Sleeve-Rubber Pistol Grip Sleeve-Black-17210 fits the SFX perfect. <$10 on EBay.

I have it on my SFx. It's a tight fit but, it does fit.

As a retired sailor, I know about shining brass (daily somebody shined the ship's bell).

There's an old Navy saying, "Work it might, shine it must!"

Re: TP9SFX M&P compatible parts list?

Added a Ghost 6.5 lb. firing pin spring today. Did the wooden dowel firing test before and after, what a difference. With the Ghost it hit the ceiling, before, nope.

The 1 in every 50-100 round light strikes should be history!

It's a low cost fix for what ales your SFx.

Re: Jericho Full size and Compacts Good to VG Surplus $299

I have the Baby Eagle III (Polymer), kind of like the next-gen for IWI sold by Magnum Research. It has a decocker on the slide which due to it's location, takes some practice to get used to.

Good shooter and I love the grip.

A little tape on the slide release spring helps to keep it in place when inserting the front block
Great idea on the tape, would have saved me one disassembly/reassembly.

Re: Galloway Precision +2 Magazine Extension for Canik TP9 Pistols

I ran into a different problem, the (manufacturer who shall not be named) 3-D printed mag-well was keeping the magazines with these extensions from fully inserting. I was getting FTF after FTF. After I realized the mags were not locking up, I started smacking them in. The locked up but still was get...

Re: SAR9 Test and Parts Plan

The right out of the box trigger pull had about 9 stages. Bully! Bully! the striker block plunger spring is fairly overpowered and it makes the trigger gritty. Any recommendations for a replacement? Overall, it’s a steal for $285 Concur but, I would like it a lot more with a different shaped trigger.

Re: New member from E Texas

Well, welcome aboard.

Don't have an answer for this one. Take a peek around inside and let us know if you see anything out of the ordinary. Please read up on the various threads on breaking in an SFx. There are some "special" needs for it in the beginning.
