Okies, went to the range again today….took the Glock 27, with the new 21lb recoil spring I used last time with no issue.
Had no issue today…until….
Pay close attention….
TRIPLE TAPS! Was using Remington 180gr, FNFMJ Ammo (UMC Factory Stuff)….and as long as I was on double-taps it was fine. But I did a few rounds of triple-taps at the silhouette (the one I totally mangled the center of mass out of ), and then, and ONLY then, did I experience any jams at all, And, they actually were not stove pipes, but rather – feed jams. This surprised me cuz I had lubed up the slide rails and everything else with some super duper stuff from Brownell’s, whose name I don’t recall at the moment, but my “gun guy” recommended it highly. I’ll post the name later….don’t feel like going downstairs to look at present.
So, the 21lb recoil spring I bought from Glockstore.com, DID apparently cause a few jams. However, NOT the stove-pipe jams I was warned about, but FEED jams…almost like the cartridge was “sticking” to the feed ramp. A bit odd I thought, as I was shooting with both hands and definitely NOT “limp-wristing” the shots. I was only loading 8 rounds per magazine. Out of each, I took the first shot well aimed, then two double-taps for a total of 5, then the remaining 3 as triple-taps. Accuracy was friggin outstanding, but I DID actually get 2 jams out of around, heck, I don’t know, say 90 rounds.
Now, I would estimate that had I been firing ALL +P ammo, there would have been ZERO jams….but am not sure yet, and need to test a few boxes of +P. I’m just too cheap to buy more. I carry Hornady Zombie rounds in it daily, but I sure as heck don’t shoot them at the range on a regular basis at near $1/rd !! But, just for the sake of testing, and for my own satisfaction, I will buy some more quick as I can find them, and take them to the range….SOLELY so I can report back here on this “jam” issue the glockstore warned me about….the one I can’t get to happen. Oh, just FYI, I am definitely NOT knocking the glockstore.com sales people on this!!!!! I love that store, and they definitely know WTH they are talking about. I’m just testing their theory in my own personal shooting practice is all. Naw, glockstore dot com totally ROCKS!
Wednesday, I’m also installing a 3.5lb trigger connector (& some SS assy pins), so we’ll see if that trigger will change anything as well while I’m at the range any dang way LOL. Oh, btw, if you are in Dayton and already have a CHL/CCW Permit, there is a LEGAL UPDATE CLASS on Feb. 26, 2014 from 5:30pm-9:30pm. Keep that sort of stuff up to date in your head!!! Don’t want to carry illegally anywhere, and ESPECIALLY DON’T WANT TO MAKE A BAD SHOOTING CALL!!!!!
For now, ya all take care!
Peace Out! Carry proud, you’re an American exercising your civil right to do so, and if you don’t fight to maintain that right, you will eventually lose it (and then another, and then another….)
