    Actually first unlimited gssf gun for me. I sold a recent cert to help fund the project. Ordered every from bobby carver - sts sight, mount, kkm barrel, sjc 5 port comp, sjc slide racket and an 11# spring. Bobby even sent me a free guide rod ( probably thought I forgot to order it but I had a spare). Hope to test it out next week. Probably add a mag well and sjc button mag release at some point to finish the look even though that won't help in gssf much.

    Looking good Justin! I might have to do that one day too....

    What's it got for a trigger?

    Very nice...

    Did you install the sight mount yourself? Does it come with a template to help align things?

    Trigger is stock with a (-) connector. Left it that way so it feels the same as my other glocks. Yes it was very easy to put together

    Add a stainless mag well, it will help for GSSF; not so much a light plastic one. Now if you really want to jump into Open/UL take a grinder to the trigger guard and undercut it and it'll help a lot with recoil control shoot major, and even minor/steel loads.

    jb there's not much to installing a Carver mount and no need for a template or anything more than a punch and screwdriver/allen wrench

    I'll hope to do a range report next week. I have 7-800 rounds WWb left over from before I started reloading. After that runs out I'll need to work up a load ( assuming the WWb works ok). That should get me through a little practice and the griffin match in February.

    WWB will work fine with it. Nice set up.

    not to side track a thread

    When did you purchase your WWB

    I purchased some WWB 9mm 100 round box over the summer from Walmart 2 week ends ago I went to the Range to break in my new Gen 4 17 that GSSF was so kind to reward me with from an event only to have it lock up solid because there was no flash hole in the cartridge.

    I am still waiting to hear back from them

    if your gun locks up don't panic
