    Just though I'd put up the latest pic of my ongoing project.

    Stats so far:
    KKM barrel, SJC 5-port alum. comp
    SS guide rod, 15# ISMI spring
    Brass mag well
    Agrip
    Carver competition mount w/slide ride C-more

    Modifications:
    Finger groove removal, high cut trigger guard
    Trigger is my current work in progress. Very short and crisp right now, working on losing weight without losing a nice reset.
    slide cut a-la G34, and lowered ejection port
    Opened up under the carver mount to give shells a little more room to get up and out.
    I may end up making a new slide ride base for the carver mount, and moving it back even further to allow for barrel porting.

    any comments or ideas are always greatly appreciated.

    Right now I'm just using it for GSSF open, but I plan on moving to USPSA eventually. I know I'm trying to reinvent the wheel for GSSF open(most people use G34/carver/17l barrel with light loads) but I'm not looking to drive, I'm looking to fly.

    Right now, yes.

    I plan on switching to +10% springs soon though, I just need to figure out what I all need for my next parts order. There's a couple spare parts I want to get and duplicate the internals, so I have pre-modded backups.

    I would have switched sooner, but I haven't had any mag issues yet. This may change when I start speeding the gun up though, which is why I plan on going +10%.

    The tungsten extended guide rod I have won't really work with the comp, so I may have to trim that down a little too, to make it fit. I hate using stock length rods while changing recoil springs.

    Tim,

    Did you drill and tap the top plate of the mount yourself (to move the C-more back), or can you order it that way now?

    Can youi post a pic of the ejection port side...with the slide locked back?

    The mount I got came with holes drilled for 2 positions.

    I think I'm going to redrill it and move it back just a little more.

    the only pic I have of the other side, is with the old comp, and pre-Agrip, but it still shows most of the work.

    Maybe tonight or this weekend I'll take a few more pictures.

    Cool; just curious. The OEM extensions don't seem to cause any problems with standard springs. I tested some plain Pearce +2's (which have some uses), similar to the old-style Glock extension, and with that slide running anything faster than normal they simply don't have enough Wheaties to get that follower up and keep the slide at lockback. 7151's solve that issue as do stock floorplates, but I agree that +10% springs are a good idea and they're going on my list as well.

    These things are fun. ;f
