You're both making me feel good about rolling my own LSC flat! Not really, it did come out great, but it was a huge time suck and totally not worth it.
Tool1057, if your coharie isn't SBRed, it would probably be worth it to A. Sell it or B. Buy a new Vector receiver and swap your parts over to it.
In on topic news, I think I'm going to pony up and buy the brass catcher and side railed top cover for the TP9. Also, I'd really like to do an angled grip rail like what's his name, but I can't seem to find the time!
Oh, and what do you think about the Osprey45 on this? I figure that it's medium volume, but the 45 hole vs the 9mm bullet shouldn't cause too much of a pressure issue. I may look at doing that adapter for fun.
Yeah, if good old Todd won't fix it, the new vector receiver sounds cool..... but I would have to pay someone to gut my current gun, install the barrel, etc, and then refinish it. By the time all that is said and done, including the cost of the receiver, I'm sure it will be over $500. Or more. I don't know how much those receivers cost.
I read a post by Richard Thompson on uzitalk a few years back that he had (or had planned to) machined a slanted rail for the TP9 out of aluminum. Hey Richard, if you're out there, did you ever do that, or would you?
About the Osprey - dude, I dunno. I really think it's not big enough. You really need a large volume, early in the gas path.... remember, there's also that flat barrel surface working against the gas. It would be worth a shot... but I would really think about that long and hard. I was without a Trident for a loooong time
I would be more worried about damage to the gun though...
My SG and some other toys went pending 21-SEPT. I wonder if I'll get them before christmas. I do not know.
