Re: My First SFx Build

Haven't posed here in a little bit, so I figured I'd post my latest change to the SFx. I decided to change/upgrade from the Fat Daddy to the Racer. Why you might ask...there's been a few instances where I'm running the gun faster, and the trigger just didn't move. This mainly seems to happen with sp...

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

:-? ...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. Looks like you're right! :sad: I guess that's just t...

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. Fortunately mine failed at the range and not a match. The only fault I find with Freedomsmith is they should have reached out to everyone t...

After closer inspection I definitely do have the old firing pin. So I'll have to keep an eye on it
No way to really tell, until one day when the gun doesn't go "BANG"...the the "tip" of the FP probably decided to take a "leave-of-absence"! :lol:

Re: My Super 650 Dillon Build

I purchased my second 650 last year. Now I have one set up for small primers and one for large. What it really means is one set up for .45 ACP and one for 9mm. A couple of nice enhancements are linked below. https://www.ebay.com/itm/The-Original-Dillon-XL-650-Missed-LIVE-Primer-Chute-Ski-Jump-Fix-U...

Re: New member from E Texas

The new firing pins are easily identified as they are "shiny", where the MIM ones are black. I purchased the two pack from Canik and they only ship the new machined ones. I haven't seen a "new" SFX, so I can't say what FP they ship with. Best thing to do is remove and inspect what's in your gun. Lik...

Re: Seeking Adjustable Rear Sight for TP9SA

Good to know. My TP9SA shoots high left. Got it pretty much centered up but it still shoots about 5" high at 25 yards. If you're shooting high you can fix that with a taller front sight. Use the Dawson Precision Sights "Sight Calculator" to determine what you need... https://dawsonprecision.com/sig...

The Combat is a gun that will "WOW" you! Let us know how your first trip goes.

Re: Favorite match loads for the SFx?

I'm getting good accuracy with this recipe. Do you ever run batches for, "friends"? No...I don't want to deal with the liability if something happened. Nothing in this world is fool-proof! Your "BEST FRIEND" could get maimed or worse, killed, and I'm sure some family member would be suing you. Unfo...

Re: help moving sights

That's exactly the problem I ran into with a sight pusher. As soon as pressure was applied the slide started canting to the right. Yup...once the slide starts to twist, you'll never get the sight to move!!! This is probably the best sight pusher out there. NOT CHEAP...but WORKS! https://www.midwayu...

Welcome and congrats on the SFX...nice deal!!! Most of the decent optics are going to be just north of $200. My first dot was the Burris FF3 8moa and it is a great optic which I got for $180. I tried a Venom ($200) in 3 moa, have a 6.5 moa Trijicon ($500) on my Combat (EDC) and a Deltapoint Pro ($40...

Welcome. I use Ballistol and it has been fine on the Cerakote. I'm thinking you're better off with two holsters. You can't have the light on the gun for competition.
