10mm semi-auto handguns / Re: Sites and Grips For Witness Elite Match

I would too if they fit.  They stick like velcro.  I'l send him an email right now.

I think it's universally known as the slide stop, not release.  That's what it's main function is and I still remember the DI hammering that into me on the original 1911.  Rack and sling shot it.  It's not a release.  I guess the thinking is it can cause unnecessary wear on the slide where it catches to "STOP" it at the rear.

"...no parts left over...."

You did something wrong.  It is my understanding that JMB designed the original 1911 with a flat, squared off FP stop.  I used a piece of marble left over from the wife's kitchen counter tops as a flat surface and place some 200 then 600 girt emery on it and just gently ran it around in a figure eight pattern for mine.



(What happened to the old FPS?)

Thanks Intercooler.  I was looking at those and think I just might pull the trigger, pun intended.  The reviews are mixed.  I put these Hennings back on and used a C clamp and some leather for padding to pinch them tight and that took out a lot of the gap.   I might try that Hogue but it looks like it would add to the grip size rather than reduce it.

Well I got my Henning grips, ordered them OD Green and have them on the pistol.  I am not terribly impressed.  $150 with the Torx grip screws.

Rifles / Best Rear Flip Up AR Sight
« on: January 09, 2018, 05:32:00 PM »
I can't get logged into AR15.com and they need a not free email account to re-register so I'll throw this out here.  If you can get logged in there maybe post it there and see what you get for answers. I have this Midwest Industries flip up rear site and it sucks.  I dial it in for the close range aperture and when I flip to the long range one it's four inches high, which it should be, but it's also five inches right, which it should not. 

Have you ever checked yours?

Anyway I want to ask on there what is a good tried and true proven rear sight.

I'll just throw this in here.  I was going to start a new thread but maybe this is related.  I empty a magazine and the slide is held to the rear.  I insert and slam the next magazine in and the slide is released at the same time.  If I place it in the slide stays back but I'm used to giving them a good bump once inserted.  This might be a good feature to competitors but a little concerning to your just paper punching old fart.

What do you want to shoot?

I have a couple of 10 mms in 1911 and they just feel good to me.  I just have my first double stack, Tang, EAA Witness Elite Match and while it's heavy It does fit the hand OK.

What do you want this new pistol to shoot?

I have a Witness Elite and there were gaps big enough to fly a B52 through.

I'll put them back on and snap a pic.

LOK grips don't fit.  They're for the large frame what ever that is????   >:D

Going to order these next.  https://www.ebay.com/itm/EAA-Witness-Grips-Lava-Rock-Texture-Choose-your-color/281254614479?hash=item417c14d5cf:g:GnoAAOxyNDxRXmC5


Can someone ask the question "How wide are these on the pistol?"  I canceled my eBay account after getting ripped off and no satisfaction from eBay.
