    I need some pros and cons for USPSA competition Glock gear for the Gen4 G35's.

    I started shooting USPSA (5 or 6 local club matches) and have been using stock gun and mags with a Blackhawk serpa with the button:dunno:

    Oh yea I installed a Warren/Sevigney with fiber optic front.

    And also did a trigger job last month, only way to improve now is with a complete fulcrum I would rather get some new gear before I move up on the trigger.

    Id like to order a faster holster but Im hoping to use it for both limited and open. Leaning torge a CRspeed style.....

    Im thinking about going with a Dawson Precision heavy magwell and extended basepads. Any issues with this set up?

    When I started out in Limited years ago, before switching to Production, I had basically the same setup, G35, Sevigny sights, Trugrips, CRspeed belt, holster, pouches, Dawson magwell and base pads.

    You're GTG for Limited!.

    Go with the Arredondo +5 basepads. They make legal length for Limited and you'll have 20 rounds to play with. In Open you can use their +10 basepads. CR speed is an excellent choice, but it's only gonna save you about .2 over that Black hawk. Dont expect miacles. If I could work with you, I could take 4 times that off your daw in a night!

    Are the factory 22rd 40 cal. mags less than 140mm?

    No, they are way too big. The most you will be able to get in your mags is 20.

    Nov 26, 2010 is where i buy alot of my comp. gear. Chris is a good guy to deal with and knows what he is talking about when assisting with gear for a particular division, uspsa or idpa. Shipping is darn fast too.

    I would set the gun up production. That class is much less gear based than limited. Then, when your ready, add a Vanek trigger and magwell and go into limited.

    Most importantly, have fun!

    I started in Limited, and plan on using the gear I got for production. But I wanted Limited and Open gear.

    I ordered 2 Arredondo +5 basepads and a CR Speed holster today. Next month if I get a Christmas bonus, Im ordering a Dawson Ice magwell and another basepad or two.

    Got my Arredondo basepads and CR Speed holster and have been doing some dry fire style practice infront of the tv this week. I figure with one less reload and a little bit faster draw, I should be able to miss just as many as I did before! lol

    Next item to add will be a Dawson Ice magwell.

    Now, do yourself a favor and grab Saul Kirsh's book "Perfect Practice". there is also a nice series on dry fire pratice that will really up your game quickly (Got me to MA class!)

    Its a huge temptation to spend on hardware rather than software Mike. get the books, get some training, and you'll be amazed what you can do with even a stock gun and holster.

    Particularly tune in to competition only forum. It's huge and some of the best shooters in the business are on there every day. Invaluable.


    Ps--Pick up matt Burketts video 1-4 and How to Shoot faster. Your eyes will be opened my child. When you hit B class (and not one second before) get Brian Enos' book "Beyond Fundamentals". Before that skill level it will read like a Shao Lin temple scroll. After, it will make perfect sense. Trust me on this--do NOT read it before B class, it will wreckya.

    I've got a Gen4 G35 I ran in limited for nearly two years. I would estimate round count between 32,000 and 35,000rds. It has held up flawlessly and I have never had any issues with it. It is one of the RAE prefix guns and I never sent it in to Glock for the upgrade.

    here's what I have done to it:
    Dawson Adjustable front/rear
    Glockworx Magwell (I have both the heavy brass and the aluminum one, both the heavy and light insterst, ended up light,light)
    Trigger job by moi.
    Glockworx titanium striker
    Dawson basepads
    zev tech internals, springs, connector etc
    zev tungsten guide rod, 13lb ismi spring

    The gun flat out runs like a scalded cat.

    My load is:

    180gr Montana Gold CMJ
    1.135 OAL
    mixed brass
    fed #100 SPP
    4.6gr Hogdon Titegroup (my barrel is a bit slow)

    Makes 173-176 power factor depending on the conditions.

    I love the gun in fact, I am considering putting my SVI Infinity in the safe a while to go back to the G35!!
