Well, this afternoon I installed the new SS Guiderod & 15 lb spring in the G19..
..removed the shok buff..
..and still could not get the PRIVI 147 gr to cycle!
Lubed the weapon thoroughly, shot it stiff armed, with & without the AWC Abraxas..
..still would not cycle the slide!
The G19 cycled fine with the hotter lightweight ammo...such as the 115 & 124 gr...Corbon +P & similar.
But for maximum quiet...cycling the slide manually....the PRIVI could be very useful.
While at the private range...got a chance to see a new binary explosive target compound in action..
Also got a chance to play with a bud's new toys...
..his new Trijicon ACOG/RMR combo...
..and his new Thermal Monocular....a FLIR Recon M-24
..rugged, compact, submersible, & can be used in weapons targeting applications with IR Lasers.
This may be the year I take the plunge & finally get a thermal monocular!
