Great day at the range!

Last week I took a new to me, but used, Pro Crimson Carry II yo the range. It came with one Chip McCormick mag and I was having problems with FTF.
Since I got a screaming deal on it I expected some issues. I did a full strip and lube. Hand polished, lightly, the feed ramp. Ordered 4 Wilson ETM mags and a Wilson Combat flat spring kit. Taking advantage of Black Friday sales helped me save a lot on this project.
Went to the range this morning. Shot 100 rounds without a single hiccup of any kind. I believe the old recoil spring was past its life expectancy.

On a side not I also installed a Geiselle trigger in my AR that also worked flawlessly. For me, 2 projects that didn't end in me buggering something up badly is a major win!

Went to the range today with a couple buddies from work. Had to test out the new Hogue Laser Grips I installed Saturday on my 9mm pro carry. Love the big white dot sights in the daytime but needed something for night. Since the Pro Carry doesn't have checkering on the front strap these made since instead of night sights. Better grip on gun and a laser to boot. Anyways, all dialed in and shoots great.

Thanks. I bought the gun used, it came with these. As they're not branded Kimber, and they have a manufacturer date of 9/2017 I can only assume they are newer replacements. Actually a good thing to me, and the laser is green! Bonus.
