Brian's gun setup
Posted 25 June 2001 - 10:36 PM
If you don't mind my asking, what is the basic setup on your 40 Limited gun. Recoil spring weight, how many shok buffs and how thick is each, what barrel in your SV (I am assuming the frame and slide are SV), sights (still Wilson's), extractor, ejector (extended or no), bull or bushing barrel, what lb mainspring, trigger and trigger insert (Enos insert?), hammer and sear brand, and long wide ext. dustcover and full profile slide or just standard (scalloped slide and frame ,dustcover)? I know this is a lot and I remember what you said about every 40 you have is different, but how about it. Thanks so much Brian.

5" blue steel long dustcover frame
"Ribbed and Fluted" slide WITH stirrup cuts
Stainless steel grip safety, mainspring housing, and ambi safety.
Wilson rear site
"Frame Saver" tungsten rod with 3 total .100" shock buffs.
(one on the back and 2 on the front)
5 oz tungsten mag well
10 or 11 lb wolfe straight weight spring
17 lb wolfe mainspring
bull barrel, shoeman
standard "tuned" Ed Brown extractor
Enos insert (of course) on tri-glide trigger and disconnector
Factory SV hammer and sear
That's about all I can think of for now. I'm sure I forgot something, and equally sure someone will call my attention to it.

did you find the flutes to be a noticeable improvement?
I've checked the SV site, but can't find the specs for the flutes.
Under Standard IPSC rules any lightening of the slide would have to be to manufacturers specs I guess.
We have fitted Australisan Lissner barrels to our guns which are full profile, they don't have the taper like the Shuemans etc. This has meant milling out the inside of the slide which is another lightening option.

The Cominolli link is correct on the guide rod.
I use the buffs that come with the rod; however, I use a Wilson buff "on front." The Cominolli buffs are soft (good shock absorbtion), but they wear out quickly. The Wilson keeps ALL the buffs alive longer.
On the fluted and ribbed: I like it because it reduces the slide's weight (the merits are explained elsewhere on this forum) and, it looks cool. I think it is the coolest looking of any slide configuration. But don't forget - I'm a function over form man.

Can you tell us what size notch your rear sight is? I think standard Bo-Mars are .110, but you use the Wilson right? Is it the same?
How about notch depth?
How about me asking specific minutia questions?

I'm in experimental mode with the sites, again, at this time. Right now I'm liking a .125 notch, standard depth, and a .115 front. Big and bold. I was running a .90 front and a .110 rear (standard). I think the standard notch on the Wilson is .125. I'll be having them on be.com soon, so I'll know for sure.

could you please place a pic of your gun here in the forum? I´d like to take a look at "the masters gun"!

I'm crazy backed up right now - I just moved, everything. And to boot, I'm on dial-up until I can get the DSL in, which could be a month or more. Ahhhhh! Well, leaving those excuses aside for the moment, I'll get one up sooner or later. Is there one somewhere in the classifieds... or maybe in the post where I detailed "how to protect your sights with my handy dandy sight protector." I can't remember where that one is posted at the moment.

Ok, ok, the second one doesn't show the gun real well, but I couldn't resist the chance to bring the "egret" back to the top...

"Mad man with blue wall"?
How fast is the reload with this stance?

"What is this sculpture called?"
The Egret Emerges From the Sea.
"How fast is the reload with this stance?"
The reload is a tad slow, but of course, I'm working on it...

I'm thinking about getting the Cominolli Frame Saver and the tungsten plug combo. Can you tell me if you have any problems the slide short stroking with three buffs and if so how did you solve it.

You should market your own heater. Brian Enos specials set up exactly like yours.

I just bought a S&W 945 which was advertised as having a Bomar sight. On close post-purchase inspection I discovered it to be a Wilson Combat rear sight and felt a little dis-appointed. If you have chosen the Wilson sight I would assume that it is the equivalent of, or better than, the Bomar and, as a consequence, feel much better. Thanks.

It sure does look trapezoidal but it is probably an optical illusion. I've noticed that it some light situations my sights look a bit the same.

Thank your lucky stars. The Wilson makes the BoMar look sick, vis-a-vis durability.

In your book you say that you use the lightest spring feasible without gun damage and always use shock buffs. At that time you were shooting Smith and Wessons. Where can one obtain shock buffs for S&Ws ( specifically the M945) ??
I've tried Wilsons and S&W - no joy.
