Re: Canik 01 Optic Mounting Plate

I initially had a BFF 3 on my SFX. Use plate 01 and the "Canik" screws.

Re: Canik Elite Combat – Setting a High Bar

Could be subs are a little more finicky with the short slide dwell times and Canik doesn't want to get into that market. SIG had a number of issues when the 365 first came out. I have a couple friends that had to send their guns back to be reworked. It's a lot easier to send your gun to NH to be rew...

Re: Tejas Products Grips

Good review! Having the logo cutout definitely helps to make it easier to install. My Elite grip doesn't have the holes. I always use it on the Talon for alignment. The grips are comfortable and good for a range gun, but I can't see myself using it on a comp gun. Not textured/grippy enough and a li...

Re: My First SFx Build

Gun is all cleaned and ready to have the broken Freedomsmith trigger safety replace! Please take some pics when you replace it. Could be very helpful to some people (like me) if they have to replace theirs. Hoping mine doesn't break, but it could be a matter of time. I was planning on putting toget...

Re: MAJOR FREEDOMSMITH TRIGGER FAILURE!!!!

Start from the safety side... If FS would create a jig to line everything up and ship it with the replacement safeties, that would have been awesome (hint...). Thank you for your detailed reply!! When I initially installed the FS trigger, I used a small vise to "press" the pin into place so I could...

Re: Greetings from Idaho

Welcome to the forum and congratulations on the new purchase!

Trigger safety on the S is integrated into the trigger guard and doesn't require a different holster. I've looked at a lot of holster options for my Elite and Combat, and haven't seen the "S" listed as a separate option.

Re: My First SFx Build

Gun is all cleaned and ready to have the broken Freedomsmith trigger safety replace! Had to use a tiny screwdriver to disengage the safety which hits the frame in order to pull the trigger to remove the slide. Replacement safety lever is scheduled to arrive Thursday. https://i.ibb.co/3BpjRYh/Safety-...

Re: MAJOR FREEDOMSMITH TRIGGER FAILURE!!!!

Same thing happened to me. My Gen 1 trigger went 1578 rounds before it failed. Good luck to ya... I must have somewhere between 5-6K rounds through the gun with the Freedomsmith trigger. I don't ride it low and never experienced the trigger binding or not engaging. Probably just the round count and...

Re: Canik Elite Combat – Setting a High Bar

if its anywhere near a $1000 they better at least change the way they do the rmr mount so you can keep you rear sights otherwise they wont be able to compete with competition in that price range. Sorry guys, wouldn’t even consider one at that price especially a poly gun. Personally I think the Elit...

Re: SF Elite Guide Rod Tests

Way back when she was new, my Elite had a very erratic/weak ejection pattern. Cases would dribble out and fall right next to me, pop straight up or even bean me in the forehead. Now, with several hundred rounds of practice and carry ammo, she tosses everything out between 3 and 4 o'clock. Hotter NA...
