    My guess is that most replacements are designed to fit the newer slides, not the stamped originals.

    Yesterday some packages came.

    229.jpg sight.jpg

    The trigger is adjustable for overtravel and takeup, but I left it as it came. The leverage is better, but the initial reach takes some getting used to. I may buy one for one of mine, test with the E2 grip.

    The sight, OEM, is close, but not great in terms of fit.

    If I can score a reaonably priced OEM forged "legacy" 9mm slide, it'll go to SI for a red dot cut.

    If I can't, I'll try a BarSto 9mm conversion and the .40 slide.

    1. Shot the new LS32 today. Can't find my cord so no pix yet. Looking over the top of the slide, GDHP +P at 3 yards, first two out of the gun 4" high and a little right, next five 2" high, 1/2" right in one elongated hole. At 7 yds, one 9" high and right, one 5" high and right, then four in about 4" high, 1/2" right.
    This one will be dry fired a lot, and I'll order up a case of GDHP.
    Definitely a snotlocker gun.
    No malfunctions.

    2. Last night I fitted a semi-dropin BarSto 9mm conversion to my P224. Maybe 20 fittings, slow and steady, but a stone wasn't enough and I needed a safe-edged file to move things along. Lots of hand-cycling. Short session today with Win whitebox.
    25 rds from 3-25 yards. At 3 yards, first three into one hole, dropped the next a half inch, then the fifth into the first hole. At 5, five into 1 x 1 1/2". At 10, six into 1 X 1 1/2". At 15, 4 into 1 1/2" x 3".
    At 25 yds, 5" roughly circular group--my fault for not marking a clear enough POA, and my shoulder was behaving badly.
    Otherwise unaltered gun using the flat based 9mm mags and the .40 sights. Not much to hang onto.
    Added a grip extension to one mag (reduces the capacity to 11+1). Then loaded up two mags with 24 rds of Ranger 147 gr RA9T: 1" X 3 1/4" five shot group at 25 yards, a mag dump at 3 yards from DA, other attempts at accuracy.
    No malfunctions.
    There is potential here. Eager to properly break it in.

    3. Picked up some brass from a previous session, and some rounds. Brent, the 10mm cases show a clean, well centered striker impression. The two live 9mms recovered so far show light primer strikes, one well centered, one off-center. The live 10mms show no primer hits; no surprise there.

    Pix when I can.

    Good trigger time, Papa.
    Close and far. ☆ Your eye to hand (hand-eye) coordination definitely shows finesse. Nice work & Congrats.

    All I did was oil up the bolt on my Custom Mauser,& dry fire. Looked at my SCAR17 for a while & , decided , the time is right to put a new Geissselle .SuperScar trigger in that carbine. (Bought the trigger a year ago)

    .
    Papa, your Seecamp groupings echo my own. That little gun does need some practice. Larry Seecamp recommended dryfiring, even said that the gun is designed to endure it.

    I wish they made a .32 Laserlyte for the little booger. They do make them in 380 ACP, of course. <sigh> I've had great luck using a 9mm Laserlyte while dryfiring my Glocks and my CZ75 and SIG Mk 25/P226. Likewise, I dryfire the crap out of my 340PD using my Crimson Trace Lasergrip. The little red dot is great in reinforcing grip and trigger control, and is helpful in showing me when I get off mark. I've gotten so that I hardly have any flyers when going from first shot DA to SA follow ups in my CZ and SIG. Naturally, shooting live ammo is key, but dryfiring with the laser is a nice way to keep up the skills.

    I probably don't shoot the Seecamp as often as I should. I don't have great expectations in making long range shots with it, of course. As Gabe says, its primary mission is up close and personal.

    The best news, of course, is that it functions reliably.
