I don't know about worked over, but loose tolerances on slide to frame match ( a known Glock bonus ) coupled with a weak spring would probably do the trick.

The metal slide would be in motion with the rest of the weapon headed back and it would only take twice ( I think ) that force on the forward change of direction plus the compressed weight of the spring to achieve the desired result.

If you take the spring out of the weapon, leave the magazine out and simulate, you will see what I mean.

When I watched this video, the second thing that I noticed was the lack of recoil from a light weapon while shooting off hand. I am thinking there was something done to that slide to make it very heavy. The weight of the slide combined with a softer spring would make it quite a bit easier to rack in a round using inertia. However, that guy's arm did move pretty damned fast.

That's what is making me wonder about a HiPoint, maybe with some light springs and lighter loads.

Ive tried it with G17, g20, and G34.

Of course the G20 with more mass comes the closest, but only about halfway to stripping the round form the mag.

He has to have a replacement spring and guide rod in there. The spring would have to be so light, that any ammo shot in it would have no way of meeting the minimum power for SSP.

Why do you feel it necessary to list your guns?
