Honestly there's a lot less flip and movement with it... Even running a higher recoil spring

RippSpeed 08-15-2013 9:15 AM

An update ...

here she is after being laser engraved

Nice work Justin!

JohnAmo2011 10-08-2013 6:16 PM

Sweet shooter. What caliber is this? The recoil is flat, barely any muzzle rise.

40sw

JohnAmo2011 10-08-2013 8:51 PM

Minor or major load? I have only shot 40sw with polymer guns, quite snappy. Great shooting by the way

Major ... My power factor on my 5" is 169 to 172pf and 182pf to 184pf on my 6"
