    Thank you, Megafiddle!Hope it was helpful. As you say, you don't really need it to tell you are
    wandering off target. For dry fire, you can simply watch the sights, and for live fire, you can
    simply l...

    Interesting tech, but I don't need 1 $149 device to tell me that I am less steady than a vice.
    Anyone know the "wall drill" mentioned in the article?I've used the wall drill occasionally,
    though I did...

    Hope the numbers are useful. Although approximate, I believe they are accurate to within 0.1".

    I like that chamber swab. Something I discovered: CITMED Cotton Tail swabs. These are 6" long

    The mechanical offset applies to iron sights as well. The only difference with an optical sight
    is that these often sit even higher than iron sights, and so the offset can be as much as 3"
    with optica...

    It sounds like the extractor is fine then. The slight angle of the empty case should be of no
    concern, especially since the live round sits straight. Perhaps the primer is protruding
    slightly, and hol...

    I would also agree that Springfield should take care of an uneven breechface if that is indeed
    the problem. I believe these are cut vertically with a broach, and can leave vertical tooling
    marks. I ha...

    As I have aged, and shoulder replacement, has reduced my upper body strength, to the point that
    I find it very difficult to rack the slide. My Shield, is almost impossible, and the XDM is
    somewhat bet...

    If the tops of the magazines are identical, with all the same latching points, then the older
    covers should fit.The covers don't allow magazines to be loaded for longer periods. They
    prevent the cartr...
