I think you guys are on it. I don't use a buffer. The reason I have am 18 lb spring in it now, is because of my handloads are a little lighter than the factory. Doesn't the lighter spring allow the...

I tried an 8 round Kimber years ago, wouldn't work. I also installed a 8 round kit, didn't work either. This was several years ago when I first got the pistol in question. I guess I could try again...

That's a good one Cappi :D. I took one of my original DW wadcutter mags and installed an 11 lb Wolff spring. Will run a few of the HSTs through it and see what happens.

I like the CMI stainless, but the speed of my slide seems to require a xpower mag spring with a 18-20lb recoil spring. I believe the extractor needs a slight adjustment because the brass is thrown...

Magazine Lips Important?

My carry ammo is JHPs. I have read for years that Hybrid mags were developed for JHPs. My question is do any of you use GI mags or Wadcutter mags for JHPs?
