Default 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...

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

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...
