HK Nut Extraordinaire
Very true Tony! I've never been much for suppressors on handguns... Interested in more of the "Roland Special" concept to make it a functional performance type of setup.That is pretty special--- awesome sidearm and setup--- but you are lacking a suppressor!!! :biggrin:
Thanks! How much was the work?Sure, take your stock VP ...
Deltapoint Pro - MSRP $519
Rear iron for above - MSRP $79
Threaded Barrel - Rim Country Mfg - $175
Comp - HKParts - $50
Taylor Freelance Magwell - $100
Keep in mind most of those are MSPR prices. I found quite a few deals on parts.
My comp comes in tomorrow. I honestly am not particularly hopeful in how much difference it'll make, given how small the ports are and my overall meh-ness toward HKParts' own products, but hey, it's only 50 USD.
How much change in splits have you seen?I'll be as straightforward as I can regarding the HKparts micro comp. It works and does what it's supposed to do, mitigate recoil and reduce muzzle flip. How drastic is it? Not enough to turn you into John Wick. It does however, make follow up shots a lot easier. I noticed the recoil impulse is reduced by quite a bit while muzzle flip is still there but not as pronounced as it is without the comp.
I'll be honest and say the comp could have done a better job at reducing muzzle flip. 3 small ports on the top just isn't enough for that. I won't take mine off though, as it does a good job with recoil mitigation creating a better experience when I shoot my VP9.
A measurable amount. I can't give you an exact number but If I had to guess I would say splits are cut 1/3 of my time. I notice it, my buddies I've lend my VP9 to have noticed it, it isn't just negligible at least to me. I notice I track my front sight much faster.How much change in splits have you seen?
IIRC, the Roland Special is suppose to be a Gen3 Glock 19 with a KKM threaded barrel and comp, Surefire X300U, Trijicon RMR RM06, Sentinel Design magwell, some light internals work, and ATEi doing the slidework; anything else isn't technically an RS, but merely a genericized version of it. An Army JSOC guy built it as a joke (the guy liked to use Roland Deschain as his pseudonym), then realized it was actually pretty useful. The KKM comp on the Glock 19 put the length at Glock 34 size, and allowed it to be used with Glock 34 Safariland duty holsters (which makes form factor very important, when you're trying to use duty gear). The comp allows for the gun to shoot flatter, which makes it easier to reacquire the dot (some will say easier to track, but that implies that the dot is kept in view the entire time, which I highly doubt is possible unless you're Jerry Miculek's level of grip strength, even if the dot is out of sight for extremely short periods of time and appears to never be gone). The KKM barrel offers better accuracy than stock (Gen3 Glocks are slightly, but noticeably, less accurate than the Gen4). The RMR is excellent for improving accuracy overall, particularly when shooting under NODs (can't see irons usually, due to focal issues).Since we are in this thread, let me ask you guys (I didn't search yet so not sure if this been answered before) what is the big deal with "Roland Special"??
