I zero'ed before shooting the match... Didnt even need to adjust the sight it was dead on already.
The slide feels soo slow compared to my STI Edge ... But the gun shoots flat and straight... Very Happy with how she turned out... I ended up use a 5" Guide Rod and Reverse plug and a 9lbs Sprinco w/ a Dawson Aluma Buff...
Just Finished @ the Laser Engravers ...
Tell me what you guys think ???

been having issues with my barrel not accepting 1.180 OAL Lead... So I ended up shortening my OAL by alot... I ended with 1.155 to 1.160 OAL for it to run flawlessly...
But, heres my vid for today ... could have done better and focused more...
I don't know anything about competitive shooting but this thread makes me want to learn! Incredible gun!
