3/28/16 range report :-)

My Pro CDP II 9mm made it home from Yonkers after being sent in for the front sight falling out of the dovetail within the first 50 rounds, took 4 weeks. The packing form said they tightened the sight???
I had ordered a set of VZ operators in dirty olive so after a good cleaning I put those babies on and headed out. The pistol had run flawlessly the initial time out, ran 150 rounds even though the sight kept moving, so I decided to stick with the stock recoil set up. I'm going to try out the "baked" Wilson rig tomorrow :-) Today I brought 3 new Wilson 10 round mags as well as 2 Kimber 9 rounders, as they've only been used once I guess they're new too. Except for the mag I sent in with the gun all have been sitting fully loaded for a few weeks. The Wilsons did seem stiff, my range has a policy of not bringing loaded mags into the building and when I unloaded the Wilsons before leaving I had a hard time unloading the first few rounds of each. Firm is an understatement, I was a little worried.
...I was worried for no reason, everything ran perfect, other than my aim :-) 50 Fiocchi (blue box) 115gr FMJ and 50 American Eagle 124gr FMJ center mass and another fast 50 American Eagle 124gr FMJ to the head. The target is at 25'.

Four weeks to "tighten the sight"?! That sounds like a long time. I wonder how long it actually took to do the work and how long it sat on some one's work bench?

But, so glad to hear that everything is fixed and working well. Thanks for the range report. Good shooting. That bad guy would be dead at even 30'.

Main thing is that it stayed put! I can live with the turn around time, plus they sent me free stuff so there's that :-)

Nice shooting Mark, it probably only took a hour for fix the sight but it had to sit for a couple of weeks until it's turn came up to be worked on.

Thanks Snake, I didn't mind the stock wood grips so much but I'm not too good at keeping solvent off of things when cleaning. The G10 material should work out better in the long run. They DO feel better too :-)
