    Long shot

    Would anyone have a Dawson 2011 mag tuning set I could borrow for an evening? Can pay in beer/wine/whiskey.

    Never heard of one till now. But I will happily accept all your whiskey 😆

    Should we buy one as a group if you can't find one?

    One of my sps mags is a bit iffy.

    Could be an option, I have asked on the IPSC face plant page too so will see how I go. I don't trust myself with a vice and hammer

    I am in if you decide to buy one.

    I have one follower that sits funny in the mag and sometimes causes a malfunction on the last 2 rounds.

    Doesn't the CZ have magazines?

    Send me one of your mags and I will send it back to you so that you will need a jig like this😆

    If it's the same as you and a grinder on a trigger, I'll happily send them to you


    Stepping back from this kit, what is it trying to achieve ?

    Just due to use, dropping etc the feed lips get bent out of shape and width. This lets you shape the feed lips and the pliers let you bend the front and rear so your rounds face the feed ramp correctly and eliminate miss feeds (all going well)

    I wish the 2011 trigger mech was as simple to work. (It probably is) Just I haven't worked on one yet so am having to send mine away to a fella that has the skills to get my trigger where I want it. Gun was way to pricey to muck up with a course grinder and rasp that I used on yours 😆

    If you ever wanna sell that shadow I want first rights. I could have a play with it in standard div.

    Standard and Minor aren't the best combination.

    I have been meaning to buy one of them dawson kits for a while now but i consider them a one time use item so never did. Being a real backyard hobby engineer that i am i found the feed lip dimensions online and proceeded to use a small rod to pry the lips apart and to about the right width

    Its worked for about 6 months but i should realy just buy the kit and do it properly
