RR : Underwood Nukes , New Wolf GR , and springs
Hi guys , as promised I am going to give a range report now that all my mods are on and my underwood loads arrived.
Gun - G29
Mods being tested (new) - Wolff Guide Rod , 21# Recoil Spring , Replaced 4lb striker with a 6lb.
Other Mods already on gun - Ghost Rocket Kit (complete non drop in)
Ammo - Underwood 135gr Nolsters (1600fps) , UW 165gr Golden Sabers (1400fps) , UW 165gr TMJ (1400fps)
Distance - 15yards
Well I finally got to the range , I first fired the last remaining weako Hydrashock's to see how they functioned with the new RSA , all good - no problems.
I then put in a G20 Mag loaded with 15 of the Nolsters , wow these are definitely NOT Hydrashocks lol. FOR THE FIRST TIME IN MY LIFE , I had a "jam" -- 3 of them in the G20 mag.
After "calming down" , I can say with 100% certainty that THESE WERE MY FAULT. I was not used to "real 10mm" (which is why I'm giving a RR) , and I will count those FTF's (which were corrected with a tiny pull of the slide) to LIMPWRISTING.
After the first mag I had NO more issues period. I think after that magazine , I got comfortable with ALL the loads and was making AWESOME groups. The unexpected (well , expected) recoil and my nerves most likely caused limpwristing ...
I then fired every round (total round count 139) with no issues whatsoever . I loved the Golden Sabers ... All of the ammo from Underwood is TOP NOTCH .
Once calm (after the first mag with the issues) , I was acitutally surprised that despite the BIG BANG , these rounds were beyond controllable --
Conclusion : The 10mm is one hell of a round when loaded to "true" 10mm potential. I am surprised the round is so "unused" , because I really do think the recoil is no worse then a .45acp. I can't think of another semi auto handgun round that would be better for self defense. I actually think the 10mm is the "perfect" cartridge. I was doing double taps and hitting the same spot with ease. My groups were better then my XDm .45
*other notes - The 6lb striker actually made the rocket kit "crisper". It's a little "less mushy" and very smooth and crisp , I'm glad I added it.
And I found out why I "made a mess" the day I got the gun and tried to reassemble -- I thought the recoil washer was supposed to be seated on the second indent , I found out today after another close "mess" , that I seat it in the bottom dent. So my problem with reassemble was thinking the spring was supposed to be set on the first dent (because it goes into that position when the gun is assembled , and looks that way when you take the slide off) So I also did my first clean !!!! SUCCESSFULLY !!
QUICK QUESTION -- when I was cleaning (just a quick little lube down) when cleaning the metal in the back of the frame I noticed something clicked down (all the way back center I'm stupid and not good with parts/names) , I did a function test and all is well just wondering what that was?
Thanks guys !
