Re: How reliable is your fiveseven?

Yea SMP is my initials also, first name is Scott. So my name is just my initials twice over (I know real original right). Dude, you are like my twin brother from another mother. MY first name is Scott also, and SMP are my initials, as well. So, my "P" stands for Portis, hence my user name. Weird. s...

Re: How reliable is your fiveseven?

Thank you, SMP. I will do just that and seek it out to try out. I assume you are referring to the S&W 3913. I read an excellent writeup in a very old gun rag that also spoke of the "Lady" version that the author bought "for his wife". He still carries the 3913 model as his CCW. The ASP model, in th...

Re: How reliable is your fiveseven?

Yeap, leaving your mags loaded will deform and compress the springs. But after they have been deformed for a while, make sure to compress and decompress them over and over again to warm them in. 10-15 times per mag should be fine. You can use a stick or dowel or whatnot to push the follower down. O...

Re: How reliable is your fiveseven?

Great info. I am almost 100% certain it is not your pistol, and that it is your magazines. Case in point is as follows. ... Moral of the story: springs will be springs. They deform to MUCH shorter lengths after they are broken-in and stay that way. Your springs were probably not broken in. Bottom l...

Re: How reliable is your fiveseven?

:thumb: Awesome. Portis, could you re-describe the double-feeding issue you're having in perfect detail? Of course I can Blue, 'cause I'm all about detail. :D At the outdoor, wet, muddy course, the DFs (double feeds) seemed to be because I literally had been dropping mags into the mud all day long ...

Re: How reliable is your fiveseven?

We have a couple of users that got their FsNs filthy & they both reported no problems. Tomac used his in a tactical course he took which required him to roll around on the ground, he had his in OWB holster. Forget the other guy's story but think it included mud. Ok, I already did the mud test for y...

Re: How reliable is your fiveseven?

Anyway - back to topic. I should have some results of the factory springs back in the 30 round cmmg extensions by tomorrow night. Scott Ok, so just returned from shooting. The "bad" 30 round mag caused a double feed when it was full for about the first 3-8 rounds, then it smoothed out (this is with...

Re: How reliable is your fiveseven?

Answer this for me - is the slide closing automatically upon slamming in a new mag a bad thing? Mine does it about 50% of the time. A bit disconcerting to me.... My 1986 vintage Walther P1 does it as well.... How hard do you slam in the new mag? Well, I ain't Popeye, so ... fairly normal I guess. I...

Re: How reliable is your fiveseven?

Oh, hey btw, Scott, I have been purposely staying of the discussion, but now that I'm in it, I do use a CMMG extension with the CMMG spring. I tried using the extension with the factory 20 round spring and it would not feed reliably. The CMMG spring seems to work these days. Have been using it. :D ...

Re: How reliable is your fiveseven?

Some youtuber posted something up about problems with the CMMG ten round extension (assuming that is what your using).

Re: How reliable is your fiveseven?

I've only ever had one stoppage and that was with the PRo-mag 30 round magazine. I've since put a EA mag spring in it, and have yet to try it again. I think I have 700-800 rounds through mine including some 15*F weather days I went to the range on Tuesday and had a buddy shoot my FsN who had not sh...
