    GAPophobia

    So true my friend. I have both GLOCK .45 ACP & .45 GAP pistols. The barrel lengths are similar. Using same weight bullets same type bullets, (JHP, FMJ) I have found the performance to be about the same. Regarding +P, the ACP may be more powerful, but that doesn’t mean anything to me as I don’t care for +P in .45 ACP. I’ve tried it and found no need for it.

    http://www.winchester.com/products/h...s/default.aspx Compare the 230gr FMJ loads.

    And the 185 Gold Dots-> http://www.speer-ammo.com/ballistics/ammo.aspx

    My own chronograph showed similar results, which were printed here on GlockTalk years ago.

    Sounds like a night sight:


    What's on the rear? Steel? Does it have a single line on the side like the second one in this pic? (6.5)

    Well, it sounds like it!

    Do you have a way to measure the height of the front sight? And how far below point of aim is the impact?

    Check out Ameriglo's sight calculator too, you might find it very helpful. http://www.ameriglo.net/sights/calculator

    I suppose 'Glock says' isn't the answer you're looking for....right?

    The NY/8lb connector combination puts too much pressure on the trigger bar/connector interface and galling can occur. When that happens it can be very difficult (if not impossible) to make the gun fire.

    Using the Glock Magazine Loader

    Butch,

    I have owned no less than 10 Glocks in my life and I have honestly never known exactly how to properly use one of these. You are right, they make getting the last few rounds into a newer magazine much easier, especially number 15 on my G19.

    Thanks for the tip!

    Trigger Spring Broke? Keep Shooting!

    Thanks for the info & pics! I was just reading a post on The Firing Line where concerns were that the trigger spring made the Glock unreliable. Never had a problem with mine, but next time I'll have a good answer.

    Trigger Spring Broke? Keep Shooting!

    Butch,
    This was demonstrated to us in the Glock Armorer Course I took in June. The instructor had us REMOVE the spring to show us how to run the gun in the event of a break. Its still incredible to me that a gun will still run with a major part removed (or broken).

    After the first time you manually cycle the slide (after breakage), the firing of a round will continue to cycle the slide thereafter.

    Correct! But that's how you sight the gun in when you are shooting in a competitive bullseye match.....you want the bullets to hit the center of the target to get the highest point value.

    If you aren't shooting bullseye competition, you probably want to sight the gun in so your bullets hit the target just above the top of your front sight (like shown in the first pic above).

    Then, if you use a six o'clock hold (so you can shoot your best group), your bullets would impact the target near the bottom of the black bullseye...like this:

    Then, if you want to hit the center of the target, you'd use a center hold instead of a six o'clock hold.....point of aim equals point of impact:

    Butch,
    I like this. The type of thing I'm working on right now. But, with your sight picture #2, with the front sight on the bottom of the black area on the target and the impact at the center of the bulls eye (2" higher)- won't the target have to be at a specific distance, or else the bullet will continue rising to it's mid range zenith and then start dropping back to the line of sight?
