FRC turns a Hi-Point into a world beater, just imagine what they would do with a unicorn. Probably be declared illegal.

I did the MFCEO tuning job last night. 
 
6lb recoil spring and whatever firing pin spring came with it


Please tell me that 6 is a typo?

And if you are running the extra power wolf firing pin spring good luck getting anything to pop, you'd do better to stick the factory FP spring back in the gun.

Have any of you guys tried Mont Blanc clicky pen springs?
Get rid of that Bic shit



In my opinion, the Henning trigger plunger spring kit is more ideal than using pen springs. 18# spring is really nice!

I did a 6# recoil spring as a test. Gun was a bit sluggish and recoil seemed strong. Gun worked fine for a few mags, and then I got tired of the recoil characteristics.Tried everything from 6-10. All worked.

 

I'm using a 9# now and like it fine.

Put 500 rounds on it and your slide is going to be moving back into battery in slow motion. Couple of mags probably isn't enough for the spring to take a set and the dirtier the gun gets the worse it's going to make it. Plus, the MFCEO doesn't run a 6# recoil spring!

I've been running the 9#, but they seem to wear out kinda quick (like 6-8k before I notice a difference in the slide returning to battery on a dirty gun). I've got a 10# in my new backup gun that I'm going to test out.

You make a compelling point that MFCEO does not do a thing therefore I should not do that thing.

 

I have no idea how long a 6# would last. Doesn't matter since I didn't like it even when it was new.

 

Maybe I like a slow slide? I've always tried to see sights lift and what I needed to see.

After running the 10 lbs recoil spring I couldn't imagine running the 6 lbs.

 

I'm running the Wolff 10 lbs with the recoil spring that comes with it.  

 

Zach:  You said not to do that, but mines popping primers just fine so far?

You mean firing pin spring? The firing pin spring that comes with the Wolff recoil spring is extra power (or all the ones I've gotten are), so you're making the hammer overcome more spring pressure with the Wolff which is going to mean less force applied to the primer by the firing pin. Most of us are trying to get the FP to hit the primer as hard as possible, I don't know of a reason to make it hit less? Obviously I don't know what other parts you're running which could influence this, like hammer spring weight, firing pin, and if you've clipped that FP spring.

I tried the 6#. It was really nice for 200rds, but as soon as the gun got a little dirty it was sloooooooooooww to cycle. 

 

The 8# has been working well.

I like the 6.275 # recoil spring with the factory FP spring that I clip 3.2 coils and polish with flitz before each match. Oh yeah , I also have to file my primers down to .004 thickness and lube the gun with chicken blood and rum and have a Hudu witch cast a spell on them.

 

 

but other than that it works great...... like 99.999%

I'm guessing it's real accurate, too.

Henning's site listed the 6lb recoil spring as the one for under 140 PF, which is what I am using so that is what I ordered. The cat seems to be on top of his game with this type of stuff.

 

If it doesn't work well, I'll buy a different one. I don't get the static. I have a 10# that came on the Stock 1, I know it works well.

 

With the FP spring, I contacted the Pro Shop and they recommend against using the one Wolff provides with the recoil spring. No problem, it takes a minute of my time to swap it out.

Tanfos, they are sick. They cannot have good trigger with shitty primers. Fed primers they shoot very much. Shitty primers, Tanfos are afraid.

I ask Jobu to come, take fear from Tanfos. I offer him cigar, rum. He will come.

My experiment today had mixed results.

 

I have seven FTF on DA with S&B primers. All went off on 2nd strike.

 

I had two complete duds with Tula. Ever went off, didn't have my 1911 handy to see if they were in fact duds.

 

One DA FTF with Tula.

 

These are in 100 rd groups of loaded ammo, all case-gauged and inspected for good primer seating.

 

My plan of action going forward is to buy more shitty primers and use those rounds for practice, and carry a Barney mag with Feds for the DA. That way the Feds will last longer. For matches, I'm always using the Feds. It helps a lot that the cheap primers have a different color than Federals.

EGD light main, EGD Hammer, Henning FP. Some sort of FP spring trimmed way down. Also have an EGD FP block fitted to clearance the FP.

You guys are amazing with all this springology going on.

Honest question, is this gun that much better than a CZ (which is similar) that it's worth all the headaches?
