It's here
 
The Springer Loaded long slide was picked up today and I did something I almost never do - I shot it before taking it home to clean it up. I did run a bore snake thru it as well as give a little oil before the test. Only ran 4 mags thru it but it performed perfectly - but it did shoot low. I adjusted the rear sight to get it to POA and it was great after that. I've already swapped out the flat MSH with an arched one and installed the Pachmayr's I like to shoot with...

Do arched MSH's really make your hand ride higher, or is it pretty much all about feel.


Nice gun.

Wow, that's beautiful. Is the longer barrel going to make a big difference in accuracy? Probably a dumb question, but I've never had one before.

Nice gun.

Both reasons really, your grip will be higher and the feel is just more natural for me...
