from SA!!! My TRP Operator is coming back from the Custom Shop and will be here tomorrow!! It's Christmas Eve and I am so excited I can't wait to see it. Truly a first class operation with this company. From sending it in, to talking to Dave, and than the fast turn around time. This all happened in a little less than a month!

Will post some pics and the build sheet sometime this weekend.

Well I have some good news and than some bad news! Fedex dropped it off at 11:45 and I opened it up with the build sheet, my old parts, and the pistol. She's a beauty for sure.

A few observations. The slide is tight the first inch of travel or so. I have to literally push on the slide to pull it to the rear. Once it starts to move it's smooth. I'm hoping once it gets broken in this won't be an issue.

The second thing is the slide doesn't totally go flush when it is returned to battery. The hammer drops when I pull the trigger so I'm hoping that it breaks in with some rounds through it. If I push on the slide it goes flush.

The STI long trigger is incredible!!! 3lbs is what I wanted.

So the bad news. I went to take it apart and being this is my first custom pistol I didn't realize I needed a bushing tool. I tried like hell with my finger got frustrated and removed the slide with everything intact. Needless to say I have a pistol in pieces on my reloading table. I called SA and talked to the Custom Shop. Told them what I did and their sending me the synthetic bushing tool at no charge. She said anytime they use a national match barrel and custom bushing you need the tool to remove it. Lesson learned.

I'm kinda bummed, but the tool will hopefully be here by next week. Has anybody else experienced these things I have described. I'm wondering if I should call Dave next week. The sheet says they test fired it so I guess it's ok.

So the slide is off the frame, but everything in the slide has not been removed? Why can you not put the pistol back together and shoot it?

it's tight at the initial travel because of the tighter barrel fit.

didn't i tell you that or was that someone else on TOS. In any case, any gun that i have that the SACS touched, they all need bushing wrenches

also you don't need to break it down. just lube it and shoot it. don't clean for ~500rds.

Wasn't me bro!! Wish I would have known that. Everything I'm describing is normal than?

Polizei I had a gi guide rod installed. So putting that back in is a pain in the ass unless you go from the muzzle end.

yep, it's normal.

on my GI rod guns, i never go through the muzzle end when re-assembling.

How do you compress the spring and keep in in place so it doesn't fly apart?? Why not the muzzle end??

I hear you!! Figured everybody would want to see it intact. Maybe I'll try putting it back together later. Gotta take care of my twin 2 year olds first!! Lol

just posted a video.

also i break the barrel out of battery before turning the bushing. this helps reduce wear on the bushing fit.

Quack
06-17-2011, 14:32
i can remove it from the front, but only do that on guns that i can turn the bushing by hand.

this is my old SS TRP.

Why not do both :whistling: before and after pictures...


Wow you let twin 2 year olds out of your sight your a brave man :wow:. I swear children can warp time. Its the only way to explain how they can be so good at making a mess or destroying something so quickly.

Oh no I never let them out of my sight for more than a few mins!! Their good kids but now they are getting into everything. I'll wait till they go to bed and than see if I can get her back together.

Even thought I get a beating for it Glocks really do spoil ya. There modular design makes yanking them apart a breeze. I can see why PD and Military like them so much. They adhere to the kiss principle in a extreme way.

Now only if they could redesign the grip angles and fix the trigger.

the trigger fix is easy. i have a great trigger on my Glock, and the angle is a non-issue.

What did you do to your Glock trigger? So far I have added a NY1 trigger spring which helped a lot. I shot DA revolvers and will NY1 brings it a lot closer to my DA's but its still not as smooth.

did the work myself ;)

adjusted springs, polish, 3.5 connector, Ti striker & plunger

HotRoderX
06-17-2011, 15:11
I am thinking about getting the 3.5 connector did you use a Glock connector or LWD. Trying to take things slowly I seen what can happen if you go hog wild with the trigger.
