Re: Help me with FTE (not on a new pistol)

Update: I contacted Century about this asking if they felt it was a warranty issue (not demanding anything) and asking if not, is it possible for me to purchase an OEM barrel. After a couple emails, they've put in an order for a replacement OEM barrel for me under warranty. Unfortunately the barrels...

Re: Freedomsmith trigger = light strikes

Whatever happened? When I read through this, it occurred to me that you could have part of the tip of the firing pin broken off. It's happened to me, although in my case, the entire tip broke off.

Apex was selling factory take offs, dont know if they still got any barrels left or if the price is decent though.
I didn't know that, thank you for pointing that out. I just checked and they are out of stock, but still very good to know.

Re: Help me with FTE (not on a new pistol)

I sent an inquiry to Century about it. At least to see if I can buy an OEM barrel. Will let you know what they say.

:-? ...With the amount of use the gun/barrel has seen...I wouldn't be too concerned about buying a replacement barrel.
That's just me.

Except they aren't available for purchase are they?? I don't want a threaded barrel and that's all I have seen.

Re: Replacing Broken Freedomsmith Trigger Safety

A fellow shooter at a match this past weekend had to end his day early because his freedomsmith trigger safety failed on his SFX. Turned me off of getting one.

Re: Help me with FTE (not on a new pistol)

Ah, but you changed a number of variables in the equation. They are supposed to run to 50k rounds absolutely stock with only 124gr NATO spec ammo. Changing variables changes the outcome. I didn't change any variables except for the barrel in this run of testing. I had made all sorts of changes thro...

Re: SFX Blowback Sparks...

You have a reduced power RSA, do you have a corresponding reduced power striker spring? Sprinco RSA with 11# spring. FP spring is a Glock 28N. All my comp reloads with Titegroup have not shown any signs of late burning powder. Same setup I'm running. I also use titegroup. I haven't noticed any fire...

Re: Help me with FTE (not on a new pistol)

To fill everybody in. So the pistol is back to working 100%. I just shot a Level 3 match yesterday with it. Over 300 rounds, not a single problem. Also two previous matches, comprising anohter 400 rounds with no issues. What was the problem? Well it appears it was the barrel. Through all my testing ...

Re: Help me with FTE (not on a new pistol)

Thanks for the replies. I definitely did not heat it so much that it was too hot to touch. On the barrel fit of the cartridges, I can try plunk testing some, but I chamber check every single round I make in a case block and reject those that aren't pretty well perfect into a practice ammo bin. In al...

Help me with FTE (not on a new pistol)

Hey guys. I just rejoined. I was a founding member on the old site but lost track when it moved here. Let me describe my problem: I have a TP9 SFX. I use the gun in competition and shoot it, let's say frequently. The gun has roughly 25,000 rounds on it. Mods: I have a Springco recoil assembly with w...
