    what did you end up with? 17 or 19?
     
  4. The Brownells order was just for some recoil springs and the extended slide release. I ended up going with a .40 conversion barrel for my 29. The 29 and 19 are actually pretty similar in size, and I figured I already have a bunch of stuff for the 29 (holsters, mags, mag pouches) :hs:

    ahh gotcha.

    yeah I'd like a G19 as a backup weapon for the M&P, but it would mean doubling up on so much shit. I'm better off just getting a second M&P

    I was pretty skeptical about the Big Dot hype on WMD, but I ended up getting some and I shot speed steel with them. Holy fuck they are fast. My only gripe is the aluminum front sight tool they came with...but then again, they could have sent nothing at all. Other than that I had them swapped out in under 5 minutes.

    I'm still skeptical. I want to shoot my friend's G26 with them on there before I make a purchase for my G29. :hsd:

    From what I heard, they are > * when under 15yds but if youre shooting further away its hard to make a nice group because of how big the front sight is.

    I haven't gotten a chance to shoot them at greater than 20 yards on paper. On my carry gun, I figure it's accurate enough if I can put rounds of a 6"x6" steel plate at 15 yards.

    I'm gonna take it out tomorrow and see what kind of groups I can get.

    if you shoot at guy at further than 20 yds, you'll have more to worry about than how tight your group was.. like what excuse you're gonna give on the witness stand.

    How about 'he was pointing a rifle at me?'

    They aren't really designed for long range accuracy or groupings, they are a combat fighting site for putting rounds on a target quickly.

    Which is probably why I'll pick some up for my Sig P229 CCW gun and move to standard 3-dot sights on my G29. :hs:

    Just an FYI, that sight tool is aluminum for a reason. It's so in most cases it will strip out before you can over tighten the screw and break it. Most of the broken screw calls we get are from someone deciding to use a nut driver or ratchet/socket to try and tighten it.

    That's kind of what I kind of figured. I used a driver to put it back in but was careful not to over tighten it.
