    I don't doubt that that is possible. The point that the guy I met was making to me was that his 10mm (6" barrel) Glock shooting those XP or XD rounds was the only combo to RELIABLY drop them in one shot. I.e. where they stood. Consistently. Not just one time, with one hog and one perfect shot...

    I specifically mentioned hog hunting because I met a guy at the range a few months ago. I could see that he had some serious skills. We got to talking and it turned out he is a USPSA Master. Also, he hunts hogs with a Glock 10mm. He said he'd try a variety of calibers and cartridges and the 10mm...

    Just curious, for you lot that want a 10mm version, what is your intended use for that? You going to hunt hogs with it? Are you thinking you'd actually use it for EDC? It doesn't have a real place in matches, like USPSA, etc., so presumably you're not wanting it for that. I feel like I have...

    That is not the Optic Ready version.

    I also have a Canik Rival, which I have done a lot of trigger work to. When I measure it, if I want it to give me a 5-pull average of 1.75 #, I can. I can pull it quickly and with enough consistency to get a 5-pull average with that reading. But, when I do it correctly - i.e. the way that...

    When I raced motorcycles around a track, I didn't need a speedometer, either. But, I did need a stopwatch. Because even a bike that feels ridiculously fast is not necessarily actually fast. Wheeler said their gauge might not be accurate if you use it wrong - for example by pulling the trigger...

    That's what I figured. I think the numbers you are claiming for trigger pull weight are simply inaccurate. I can pull the trigger on my RIA 1911 (which is a 5# pull) quickly and also claim that it has a 2.5# trigger - if I want to claim a low number, rather than an accurate one. I emailed...

    I have also noticed that if I pull it very slowly, I get higher readings, and if I pull it quickly, I get much lower readings. Thus why I am curious to actually see how you’re doing it to get a 3.5# average.

    Any chance you could do a short video to demonstrate how you are doing the pull using that gauge? I have the same gauge, but I'm really not positive I'm doing it right.

    That is a thing with some plates and some Holosun optics, too. You just have to file/grind down those front posts on the adapter plate. Very annoying, to be sure. But, it could be a lot worse...

    @Sol-Invictus it sounds like they just sent you the wrong plate.

    I finally got to shoot my RIA Tac Ultra FS HC yesterday. I put about 200 rounds through. 100 rounds of Igman 124gr FMJ, and then about 100 of remanufactured 115gr FMJ. The gun ran perfectly. Very accurate. Zero issues of any type. With the full length dust cover and rail and steel frame, it is...

    That is the Tac Pro, right? I got the Ultra. Didn't even know about the Pro when I ordered mine. Probably would have still got the Ultra for myself, though.

    I did a search on gun.deals and found one dealer that had one in stock. I bought it and now that dealer is showing OOS, like everyone else. https://gun.deals/search/apachesolr_search/51679

    Personally, I am happy to know about other options to get the "same thing". It's just like how I have a DW Guardian in 38 Super. I love a lightweight bobtail Commander. It was the most affordable pistol of that type that I knew of. I recently learned that Tisas was making the Bantam and...

    So, in other words, "if you don't have the money to buy both guns and do a test yourself, then shut up, Troll!"

    It seems pretty clear from his posts that he doesn't have one - as you implied when you said this: Thus why he proposed that some with the time and money should do it. I think he made it pretty clear that he doesn't have the time and money. I don't, either. But, I would definitely be very...
