Default My Para 18.9 HiCap after a few mods

Got this P18.9 about a month ago, came with a box, the bushing tool and one 10 round mag. Immediately getting it I drove to the local range to test it out and get a feel for it. First thing I noticed was the sights were way off, after a little adjustment I was able to get it to shoot POA at 20 yds. Had a few extraction and feed problems but I chuck that up to the crappy lead range reloads I was shooting. The failures could have been due to how freakin dry this thing was as well.

After getting it home I did a complete strip, and lubed it up really well, then ordered a whole bunch of parts.

First thing I did was to order the TJcustoms 80's to 70 series conversion plate and removed all of the 80's series parts in hopes of improving the sh*tty trigger pull. Also got rid of the original plastic trigger as I couldn't stand the up and down sided to side movement and really bad take up and set. Next I did a trigger and action job (now 3-4 lb crisp pull and break), replaced the original two piece extractor with the EGW HD extractor and replace all of the springs with a Wolff Spring refresh kit. The barrell ramp was then polished to a mirror finish and after the chamber got a brief FLITZing to help with extraction. VZ grips, grip tape and the EGW magwell was installed last.
