Some "topless" photos of this build. How sexy is that RSA channel? :) Rook Tactical has promised me they are working on some gold TiN-coated rails. When they're available, I'll swap out the stainless for gold! Will look awesome here.

Safety tests, including drop testing - COMPLETE! PASSED!

I just threw on some spare sights while I wait for the Tyrant Designs sights to arrive. Laser sighted it in. Might have to go to the range to test fire today!

I was having an issue with the Tyrant Designs slide stop lever not having any "spring" to it. If I pushed it up, it stayed in the up position. The spring wasn't returning it back down. So, I removed it and noticed the spring was over-closed when I compared it to an original spare slide stop I had (on top in photo). So, I bent the spring to match the curve and angle of the standard lever spring (as best I could with the tools at hand), and PRESTO! It works!

Just got back from the range. Goldie's first shots... Shot #1 - 100... Flawless! Not a single malfunction! Woohoooo!

Also put 100 more rounds through Build #2 (black G19) clone. Also, not a single malfunction.
I still haven't benched it, so I don't know if it's me (probably) or the gun / sights.

The only issue is the trigger safety dingus on the Tyrant Designs trigger. The corner is sharp and creates a "hot spot" (aka pain) on the finger after shooting a number of rounds. So, I'm going to try to round that off.

With all that work you did, it better be flawless! Glad they shot well. I shoot all Glocks (and clones) low left, it is what it is.

With me, it's not consistent. Sometimes I shoot low-left with them. Other times I don't. Here's the interesting part... When I'm NOT using the sights - target focused - I don't shoot low-left.

Some miscellaneous pics. I go through a "protocol" with first shots in a build.

Load one round in mag. Rack / chamber round. Fire. Check for slide lockback.

Load 2 rounds in mag. Rack / chamber round. Fire 1. Fire 2. (making sure it doesn't go "full auto") Check for slide lockback.

Load 3 rounds in mag. Rack / chamber round. Fire 1. Fire 2. Fire 3. (making sure it doesn't go "full auto") Check for slide lockback.

If all is well... load a full mag and fire all rounds.

Good to go if:
  1. All rounds load / chamber properly.
  2. Slide cycles properly.
  3. All empty shells eject properly.
  4. All rounds fired as singles (and hit the target!).
  5. Slide locks back on empty magazine.
Then I put the gun down, step out of the shooting lane booth, and do this:

Hey... I texted the Amigos to see if anyone wanted to come along to the range! You could have witnessed the dance yourself!

Got the Tyrant Designs sights today. They match the overall theme very nicely, I think!
