Light firing pin strikes

After not firing my XR45-S for a few months, I took it to the range and all of a sudden the firing pin is not striking the primer hard enough to ignite the primer. It will dent the primer and one round finally fired after 5 or 6 successive trigger pulls, but other rounds would not fire after multiple strikes. This has never happened to me before.This is not bad ammo because it happened with all three types I had on hand including Winchester White Box and Federal HST both of which had always…See More

Alternative grips for 45-S

I am embarking on a quest to find, or even create, a set of grips for my new 45-S. I'm sure Arne has done a great job finding a grip size and shape that is the optimum compromise to fit the needs of the gun and the hands of a wide variety of users. My hand however, would get a better grip if the arched section on the rear of the grip were less pronounced/protruding. The flat mainspring housing on a 1911 also fits my hand much better than the arched version that most seem to prefer. Has…
