There'll be a pause in the Glock 32 firing until some more ammo shows up. The last box of the .357SIG care package from Lucky Gunner, some American Eagle 125gr FMJ, went downrange yesterday. Since fifty rounds of centerfire just doesn't do it for a range trip, I brought along the Glock 17 with the ZEV Fulcrum to get some more live-fire time in with it.

So, I dumped the .357SIG, thirty-nine rounds of which I'd already had loaded into mags, into the lower A-zone at a "Let's just get this done" pace before switching to the G17.

The ZEV trigger still confounds me. It is light (for a Glock trigger) and smooth, but there is no "wall" before the break in live fire. In firing multiple-shot strings, I get off the trigger during recoil and start prepping it again so that I'm ready to shoot as the sights settle on the target. The holes scattered out around the periphery of the shot group in the middle show what happens when there's so little distinction between "prepping the trigger" and the actual firing of the gun itself. I wonder what a NY1 spring would do to this pull?

There were no problems of any kind with the Glock 32, BTW. This marks a hundred rounds with the 20# replacement recoil spring.

This makes it 950 total rounds fired since the firearm was last cleaned or lubricated, with four failures to go completely into battery (#63, #78, #126, #748) and four failures to feed (#221, #224, #282, #734). 1,050 rounds left to go.
