    That gun seems to either have a weak spring or it has been worked on. We utilized our belts to rack, and the bend in the knee to reload in order to simulate getting shot in one arm, making it immobile.

    Nope. I just might do that now though.

    Hate to break everyone's awe, but that move has been around forever.

    There was a movie back in the day with Steve McQueen where one of the guys in the movie does that with an old M1911a1.

    No way you could do it with a normal piece of gear if you didn't want to dislocate your shoulder. :eek:

    So, the gun was worked over then?

    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. :p

    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.

    a real man would bite it like a pirate and rack it with his teeth.

    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.
