    By my measurements the MarkII front site rises 35/64" (or 13.9mm) above the slide cover; the top of the rear sight rests 37/64" above the slide cover. There is approx. 9/64" that the rear sight...

    I've tried their site several times, and went back again, but could find no front sight for a MkII. If I had to guess, I would suspect the front sight base and corresponding slide dovetail are the...
  5. Height of Front and Rear Factory Sights on New MkII

    Is there any particular reason the sights come from the factory set so high on the MkII? At the range, using SS197SR ammo, shooting at 25 yds, the POI exactly matched the POA. It would seem that...

    Of course the magazine safety spring acting against the right mag rib, when viewed from the back of the mag, has a great deal to do with the enthusiastic ejection as well. If you look closely at...

    The notion for this came about from shooting years of IDPA with a HK USP 45 which has an ambi mag release on back bottom of trigger guard. I discovered I could shoot stages quicker than my closest...

    Does anyone recommend a leather OWB holster of the MkII? Covert carry is ok, but not necessary, as I choose to carry open as is allowed here in Mississippi. I prefer a straight drop, but a slight...

    Kind of an update. Using Method 1 at the beginning of this post to immobilize my mag safety on my MkII, I've had no issues of slide not locking back on empty mag no slide locking back pre-maturely,...

    When coaching 4H youth shooting sporting clays, trap or skeet, we had them remove the sights (beads) on their shotguns, and ONLY focus on target - they got much better results that way. I know this...

    Using Method 1 above, I just disabled the mag safety on my 5-7 MkII. Since the spring remains under some tension, I don't believe it will move enough (if at all) from its' position above the plastic...
