    9CD536A4-0940-4A32-8BEF-5BF406595E07.jpeg Nothing like coming home and finding a box on the porch. I’m going to feed my new 1911 Valkyrie 9mm Federal AE9FP (500) and Federal HST 147 gr standard pressure (100). This should be a good test for reliability. The plan is every 50 rounds field strip and clean, lube with FP-10. I’m a week out or so for a replacement plunger spring assembly, and should be good to go once that arrives. Definitely taking some much needed advice on that. I think I’ll go the ziplock bag method mentioned to me. Appreciate all the help. We shall see how this Wesson feeds flat nose/hollow points soon. Excited and expecting success. Will update my results.

    Rounds 500-1,000 will now be fed from these mags. Wilson ETM 9 and spare for carry 10 rd. So if they run like I expect them my basic load will be 9+1/ 10. Happy the stock mags worked well but I feel this may be the way to go for a carry setup. Interesting how the round seats in a much more forward position than the stock mag. 211C5289-0C35-466E-8EC6-741A5EAD836B.jpeg 09AD68CE-B802-4B75-8AFE-CADD46FCEADB.jpeg F50762C9-C9D8-4CD8-A829-80CA24785974.jpeg 211C5289-0C35-466E-8EC6-741A5EAD836B.jpeg
