Took a couple WCs to the range this morning. One being the X9L, which has been sitting in the dark for a while. Ya know, every time I shoot that thing I fall in love with it all over again.
The other gun is the CQB 9mm I got from @Merton a short while ago. It has been going through the duel caliber conversion. I got the barrel back from @Serpico1985 a couple days ago. He did some final machining to it that I don't have the capability to do. Soooooo... today was functional test day!
I ran 3 mags of my FMJ reloads through it. The last was rapid fire to see its response (hence the increasing pattern on center mass) All went very well with feed & ejection. I then installed the orig. 9mm barrel and checked that my ejector and extractor tuning still worked with that caliber. (Upper left bullseye) Once again, no issues.
The head shots and upper right bullseye were the X9L with a mag each of FMJ & JHP....
All shots taken standing at 12 yds. (the guns are more accurate than this old guy)

The CQB worked so well that I dressed it up for the dance.
One item left to do to it.... Crown the .38 super barrel to match the factory 9mm.... another day perhaps.

Well done my friend..
Both Guns being worthy of covetousness!

I do so miss my SS 38 superb CQB.
It’s been bouncing around here as of late... I think @BCD 45 has it now!
Well I guess it’s in good hands!
:cautious::rolleyes:

I should have never let it go!!! I'd probably buy it back if I had the chance.

Ran 150 rounds through my new Staccato P DUO. I really like it, but this is my first 2011 and it’s a little bit bigger adjustment than I thought it would be, but I’m looking forward to the next time out. I took the magwell off, and I’m thinking about a different grip.

It's off hand at 35'.
got it....maybe bench rest it? then you'll be able to calculate the correct front sight height you'd need....I've had the same thing happen....until I benched it....LOL...was a bit humbling....LOL....

I'm not the greatest shot but last time the Concept VIII shot low rested rested also. Now the Custom Carry shoots the SWC closer to my POA so I won't worry about the sight just yet. I will try some factory HB thru it first. The Concept VIII shot both almost the same at about 2.5" low @ 35'.
