its a newer DE i just bought last year. i love how accurate it is even at 25 yards im nailing dead center headshots. im not as accurate anymore after using an angle grinder and having a the grinder wheel explode and f***ed up my knuckles pretty bad but that could have been alot worse so im not complaining. all y friends love shooting it to where i thought about selling my M9 and my regular 1911 because there never used.
i jsut wasnt sure if there were any recommended tweeks i can do to it to make it better or improve anything. i know nothing about aftermarket parts for firearms.
so replacing the spring guide and using a single spring would be a god idea? is the factory 23lb dual spring easier to pull back than a 23lb single spring? i dont find it too hard to pull back and wouldnt mind a slightly stronger spring if it may help in the end
would a new bushing really help? i been using my bushing compensator and love it and still pretty accurate
i really like my hammer. would there really be a reason to chnage it other than cosmetic?
If it were my 10mm and I've owned only one once apon a time, I went with the single spring with the GI guide rod and plug. My reason is that the dual springs take a set at different rates plus the cost of two springs is more than the cost of just one spring.. With that said 23lbs is 23lbs it doesn't really mater how you get there.
Not really a fan of full length guide rods, there just isn't any room for the spring too really kink up inside the dust cover. Many feel the extra few ounces helps keep the hop/muzzle flip down but then your shooting a 10mm and its going too hop around unless you fire 135gn ammo... Maybe a tungsten guide rod, but then your going too pay threw the nose for one, and you might want too think about stepping down in caliber if you that recoil sensitive...
Bushing, yes do the bushing and ditch the bushing comp. Factory Colt bushings are ok for looks but there not fit of accuracy. The hammer should be the Commander type, but you didn't say what generation you DE is? If it is the early 10mm with the small ring hammer or the Enhanced with larger Loop type called the Commander hammer there made of good S7 tool steal and you should never have a problem with it. I don't know if Colt's current hammers are MiM or not.
If I were too do three things in no particular order too a DE, #1 Trigger job. #2. Bushing #3. flat bottom the firing pin stop as JMB had intended, this really helps tame the 10mm.
