New to Guns, Not to forums

Post by ginger » Tue Apr 07, 2020 8:29 am

Hey,

I joined up to help find some more information for what to upgrade.

Anyway my name is Bryan. I bought a TP9SFX back in Feb. New to the gun game, especially hand guns. Shot shotgun and some rifle before.

Anyway, I'm a car guy, so my gun is like my cars, i cant leave them stock, always have to upgrade.

My current upgrades are

Talon Grips
Freedomsmith trigger. - I bought the galloway one, and it didnt shorten the pre-travel enough.
I shoot left handed so i flipped the mag release to the other side.

Only issues i have had with the gun was some discharge issues, but once i got around 100 rounds though it, be became a non factor anymore.

I have on order, the galloway spring kit for the plunger and the trigger return spring, and stainless steel slide return kit. Which I haven't read anywhere where someone really reviewed it, figured worse case I can use the sprinco spring with the galloway rod. just trying to reduce some recoil and i have a ghost HD firing pin spring on the way as well.

I need to order some mags, because NJ is a stupid 10 round limit state.
and i want to bling out my barrel by having it TI coated.

I saw some of the posts and my sfx came with the plunger and trigger bar already polished which is nice.

Not sure what other upgrades there really are.


Hope to gather some more information as the time comes.

Welcome to the madness! Sounds like you have a good start on mods. Check out Taylor Freelance to add some weight and, if you want, some bling.
