    well i shot 125 rounds through the new gun Saturday, it performed flawlessly. not a single bad feed or jam. i was using the gun completly stock with the springfield mag. mostly i fired 5 round mags, but i did a few 7 round mags with no problems.

    the first 7 shots were pretty good, about a group of 5 inches at 25 feet. from there i tried all sorts of stuff, just playing around. it shot pretty well except for the occasional straggler, but i mostly blame that on the shooter.

    the last 5 i really took my time and it shot a 3 inch group at 25 feet. i was pretty impressed for a stock gun, that isnt broken in, with low profile sights, and no improved acurized accessories.

    so i would like to hear an opinion on what to do next? i want to tighten it up a little and maybe eliminate some of those odd ball shots. i was thinking a full length guide rod to start. im pretty happy with the trigger feel, so i will leave that alone. i was also thinking of getting the ejection port lowered since it appears that the rounds eject more vertically than horizontally. maybe it is just me, but i seemed to get a lot of brass in the top of the head:)
