It's been six months since I joined, the first thing I did was rotate my carry mags per your advice. I also replaced the 3.5# connector with the stock one. The NY1 spring didn't work for my arthritic index finger, so It's gone. Today I'm going back to my "rested" G19 carry mag, with 2 newer G17 mags for reloads. They will be loaded with Speer GD 115 JHP +P+ for summer weather carry Thanks for the advice, my friends think I'm over thinking things, but so what.
