I have a newer model G20SF with a KKM .40 conversion barrel, runs 100%! I use Arredondo Base Pads, & get 20 re-loadable rounds. I am a Glock Armor so I did the trigger my self, its just under 2 pounds, got rid of some of the pre-travel, & no overt-ravel. I am very happy with how it turned out. I use the same OAL as I did for my G24/35, 1.130, I am using 180grn JHP's with Tightgroup loaded to about 175PF. Hope that helps!
That helps alot, thanks! I have 2k Zero 180gr JHP's, 4# TG, & 4# WSF to load up for this build. I do have a few more questions though.
Do you compete with it?
Have you been able to compare it to a G22/35 in competition, or on a shot timer?
What spring are you running?
From what I've read, a 15# ISMI should be just about right. It just so happens that I have an extra SS G20 guiderod & a 15# ISMI spring, so hopefully I've got that covered already. Now I just need to either find a decent deal on a G20 upper, or just bite the bullet and buy a brand new G20 for a little more.
I do compete with it, I use it for USPSA Limited. Your going to have to bump that load to make Major & to make the gun function 100%, remember it's a 10MM, heavier slide!!! I have tried everything fro 4.2-5.0 of TG with 180JHP's & a stock recoil spring. I like the 4.6-4.8 range. I have thought about running a 15lb spring, but it runs good as is. I have compared it to the 22/35/24 & defiantly like the G20 better. I shoot the gun a lot better then I ever did any of my other limited guns.
Thanks again! That's exactly the info I'm looking for. I was really hoping to get a Dawson ICE magwell, but it looks like Zev & Carver are my only options if I decide to run a magwell on a G20SF frame. I figured I'd be between 4.5-4.7gr TG to make 170-175 out of a 4.6" barrel, so it's good to know that I'm starting in the right place. I already have a 15# ISMI setup, so I'll try that first. I may end up lightening the slide if I feel like its slowing me down. I'm not anywhere near a master class shooter yet, so that might be getting a little ahead of my abilities for now. I don't have large hands, but I prefer the larger grip of the G20SF for some reason anyway. I have to shift my grip slightly to drop mags no matter what Glock I'm shooting, so I'm pretty sure I'll be going forward with this build. I appreciate all the help.
Two more questions and I swear I'll stop bugging you.
What holster are you using? I had a CompTac paddle for my G34 that I liked, and believe it or not I actually like my Uncle Mike's paddles a lot too. I had a Blade Tech DOH for my GEN 4 G35, but my draw didn't seem to be compatible with that rig. It kept sticking, and pulling the end of the holster outward even with the tension screws backed out all the way. I know the DOH wasn't designed for the GEN 4 G34/35's, but from what I read, it was the only one that worked at the time. Maybe it was sticking because of the wider dust cover? The DOH looks like the standard for a non-race holster, so maybe it's worth another look.
What sights are you running? I plan on using all black sights, with either a Sevigny Competition or Warren Tactical rear. What height front sight works for you? I have a black Dawson Adjustable rear, and .285 x .100 F/O on my G20LS, but I like a wider rear notch for competition.
