Range Report: Beretta APX, Mod'ed Glock 17, and S&W 627 PC
« on: August 16, 2017, 09:45:38 AM »
First up is the Beretta APX.





I really like the trigger reset but I think the trigger is a bit heavy measuring at 5.9lbs on my gauge.

The gun had one failure to return to battery in the first 20 rounds and I couldn't get it to repeat and I went through 800 rounds. With a Nod to P.E. Kelley I did this out-of-the-box. So, no cleaning or oiling. I really like the 21 round mags. The first group was shot at 15 yards and the second was at 25 yards. I installed the largest backstrap which is still a little too small for me but overall I am really liking the gun.

First grouping at 15 yards:





Next grouping with the APX is 25 yards:






Next up is my Glock 17. I have modified it with the following changes: Kensight Adjustable sights, a  5.37" Lone Wolf extended 2 port barrel, the Lone Wolf stainless steel guide rod assembly, the Grip Force beavertail, the TMG palm swell grip, and my ghost rocket connector.







With the way this is set up the 15 yards target was a waste to post. This was at 25 yards. I FREAKIN' LOVE THESE SIGHTS!!!   
SOOO EASY!!!







Next up is my S&W 627 Performance Center with 5" barrel.  I went through about 500 rounds and as you can see she is quite a dirty girl. But so nice of a gun. It is still my favorite revolver to date.






15 yards shooting pretty rapidly with my favorite 142 FMJTC load from Fiocchi:

Nice shooting.

I always clean a new gun because the stuff Beretta and other companies use on a new gun is often more of a preservative than a lube. That may have accounted for the 1 issue you had.

I assumed that but it never repeated so I was unconcerned. I really want a compact APX to go with this one now. Gotta wait for Beretta to make one now.

Have you ever looked around at the group of people you are in and thought, "If the Zombie Apocalypse happens right now, this is what I have to work with."?
