Re: Bare Arms OWB Holster - First Impressions

+1 for Bare Arms
They make a great holster at an affordable price, with a lifetime guarantee.
Got one for my APX shortly after it hit the American market.

Re: Another SFX not cycling

I don’t know if it differs by state, but in AZ, the paperwork sits at the dealer for 20 years unless something nafarious goes down with the said firearm, then they come looking. So there’s really no agencies to contact

Re: Another SFX not cycling

I sent my SFx back for feeding and cycling issues. In my case they replaced the pistol with a new one. This took four weeks or so. The new one shoots/cycles/etc. like a dream. Good luck, YMMV. Wow a whole new one! Was their some kind of registration or paperwork, since you got a new serial number? ...

Re: Spring change with mag extensions?

Seeing you have new springs coming, take the one that's giving you trouble and stretching it out some and see what happens. Hyve told me to do that with the P320 springs. They just shrunk up again. I didn't get into the science of it too much, but quality spring steel shouldn't be doing that. Some ...

An email to TF got me a response with two recommendations. The one I chose was their 140mm spring for the Smith M&P. Ordered five of them. Should be here Thursday.
to put in your SFX?
Did they say, if it doesn't work, you can return them for a refund?

Re: Spring change with mag extensions?

a longer spring with a +4 seems pretty basic. TF should've engineered one. I had the same problem on my P320 with a +3, and sent it back to Hyve saying you guys have some poor engineering if you're not making these extensions with a longer spring. In most cases, with a lot of guns a +2 can use the s...

Re: Another SFX not cycling

Maybe I shoulda called, seems as though with a phone call they just send parts.
So they wanted the whole dam thing, but I figured what the hell, they sent a shipping label, so it's on it's way back

Re: Another SFX not cycling

Maybe try a stronger mag spring? Canik should be emailing me back today (11/5) but in the meantime, how much stronger can you get than new 20 rounds springs? I've gone the custom route, and it seems the more I tinker, the worse things get. I get worried that if this happens to be the gun I end up u...

Another SFX not cycling

Knowing full well of the internet buzz about the cycling issue that's "fixed" by running 500 rounds of 124gr then assessing the problem, I still wanted to get in on the cheapest entry level red dot combo available on the market. Pictured is 3 different FTFs and what the ramp looks like. I don't thin...

Don't give up too quickly; nobody but a custom built gunmaker has 100% reliability off the factory floor.
Except Glock, Ruger, S&W......In my experience
