Thanks - It is used for range duty until it proves itself reliable. Then it may go into carry rotation.

The red dot is a Vector Optics firenzy 1x22x26 https://vector2007.com/collections/fren ... -dot-sight
Its what I use on all my range toys now (after trying a bunch of other budget red dots). Street price can be bought $120

Likes:
Lifetime warranty
Super slim profile - allows co-witness without silly looking suppressor height sights.
Long battery life
Shake awake - motion sense as they call it.
2032 battery
Better fit and finish, than all budget red dots I've tried in the past for range use.
I have 3 - all have not lost zero on 9mm, 45ACP, 556 rifle.
I trust it enough to probably carry it in regular conditions. - haven't "torture tested"

Dislikes:
Battery on bottom like RMR so need to replace battery once a year.

So i finished the build, function checks ok. But i believe i didn’t channel out the tab in front of the front rail enough, so the guide rod is stuck from disassembly from the frame. What can i do?

Ugh. Push harder? I mean, it went through in one direction . . . hopefully you can get it out in the other direction.

And yeah, you definitely want to open that channel way up, all the way to the thicker bits on the side and bottom.

Yeah, tap the back of the slide with a rubber mallet, with the ends of the slide lock held down, of course, as per normal disassembly.

Have someone else hold the slide lock down while you tap/push, or jam some toothpick ends or something above the tabs of the slide lock, to hold it down, so the slide will be free to move as you smack it.

Will try, thanks. I thought i took out enough, but i guess not. Appreciate the advice.

Btw, how is building a pf9SS sounds? I love my g43x, is the pf9ss the closest clone to it?

In general I make the sides of the channel flush with the locking block and rounded the leading edges. My 2 builds have functioned 100%. Been a dream to shoot. Good tight lockup.


THe earlier PF9SS had some issues but it seems like recent builds have worked out fine. Not much different than issues with other frames. Just take your time.

Well, I carved on this PF9SS. With a victorinox, then a few quick jabs with the cordless Ryobi...

Bam, "Glock" 43. Seems to make all the right noises. Only issues are: sights haven't shown up, magazines as well. Also, the safety plunger needs work or I need a stiffer recoil spring. The slide moves a little on trigger take up.

Looks good!

Oh, the slide’s NOT supposed to move when you do that? I think all of mine do. :bigsmile:

Definitely could use a little finish sanding, it went well considering the limited tools on hand. Sure I could have waited until I got back home, somehow I didn't screw it up.

Would you mind expanding the technique a bit more on that tab around the block?

I really need to replace the ejectors on all 3 of my glockish 80s.
And I guess the extractor on the 26.
What's the consensus for a good 26 extractor?

I've had no problems with OEM extractors (26, 19, 17, 34 use the same one), but I hear Apex makes damn good ones....if you wanna pay more.

Issue? Are you getting brass to face?
