I've been using the Wolff spring in all my 4" guns (Champions, Kimber Pro, LB Stinger) and typically get ~2000 rounds out of the spring and occasionally more as SRJim stated. Been using that spring...

Gotcha. Definitely agree that tweaking the sizing die, OAL and/or crimp just a little will probably get them all to drop in. I'd measure and compare the ones that work with the ones that fail the...

So, if I understand you, you made a new batch of rounds on a different press and they don't plunk. If that's the case, do the rounds on the new press have the same OAL and same crimp as the rounds...

Could just mean that the bushing is tight to the frame. If you remove the barrel is the bushing tight to the barrel? I believe that is why someone was asking about the measurements. Generally you...

The fit of the barrel in the bushing is what gives the gun a lot of its accuracy. If the new bushing was tight and wasn't a drop in, it should have improved the accuracy if the barrel was good. You...

Very accurate gun but it may require some tuning to be reliable. It took 800+ rounds for mine to feed consistently so have patience. Don't try to jam JHPs up the ramp until you run some FMJ rounds...

Mine were lasting about 6k even though SA quoted 10k+. After 2-3 replacements I found that the $8 22lbs Wilson, Wolff, or IMSI springs were more cost effective and were available everywhere.

Surprised it's that cheap. I've switched both of mine over to a standard $8 spring but the reason I switched years ago was because it was costing over $30 plus shipping.

Definitely good stuff. I've been running Dan's skylight on my 550s for more than a year and I'd definitely recommend it for folks needing illumination.

Sorry. Thought the point was getting a quality knob and the 80 includes the knob and return shipping as I stated. Personally I'd rather get a real knob that extends out further for leverage that is...

$150-$200 is definitely a lot for a bolt knob. PCR does them for $80. That includes an oversized and extended knob, coating, and shipping. Badger and SAC charge around $100 but PCR was doing them on...

"Best" is going to be subjective. I have very good results from Pro Ears however the cheap Peltor Ultimate 10s do very well if you are not looking for electronic muffs.

If the factory spring is 16lbs then try 18 or 18.5. You can go higher but the muzzle may dip when the slide closes.

Considering that the grip is the hardest part to conceal, adding additional length and width does cause issues for a lot of folks. The only way to know is to try it out.

Might be worth just taking it back to the store. Perhaps someone swapped mags or bought and returned it. Wilson CS may even swap it for you if you call them. Nothing wrong with Wilson 47 mags. Some...
