New Gen3 G20 SF FTE with Underwood ammo
The title says it. I placed an order for 150 rounds of 180gr TMJ and 100 rounds of 165gr gold dot all from Underwood.
Of 80 rounds fired today, I had 3 FTE's where the slide bit the brass as shown. All 3 were with the TMJs.
I've been searching the forum and found that limp wristing is something I was guilty of today (this is my first time ever firing a pistol). The G20 recoil wasn't bad at all. I'm a fairly small guy, 5'10" and weigh 150 lbs. My groupings weren't impressive but I figure I have to learn the gun and its sights, and all of the moving parts have to learn to play well with each other.
The G20 is bone stock, these are the first 80 rounds aside from the test fire rounds.
My question is this, is my gun the issue, the ammo, or MY limp wrist for these FTEs? Every round fired, each felt the same in recoil, and the primers were struck perfectly. I know a heavier spring can help others, but I'd like to stay away from moving from stock as keeping it simple is typically the best.
On another note, I was able to fire a 1911 Colt .45 that was a service pistol in Vietnam. It felt tame comparatively and trigger pull was very crisp
