I agree with Blackie here.
No need to clip springs on any of mine.

But some did need the legs shortened.
And at least one will only run 100 percent with the spring installed one side up.  Turn it the other side up and it fails all over the place.

So, there certainly can be interference in the way the springs compress.  Some "snap crackle and pop" during compression.

Meaning that the coils are over running each other, but with interference.
Try turning them end for end.

And make sure that the ends do fit into the follower recesses, flat and burr free.

For IWB carry, I use a Front Line 80010BK. Technically it's for a Beretta 92, but it fits my 1911, Glock 26, EAA Witness, and my R51. All leather, tuckable, VERY comfy, and a smooth draw.

Here's pretty much the same

I will have to try the Witenss in this one as well!

But check that listing out again!
I think it has went up a little!
Close to threefold, matter of fact!

After lots of looking and comparing with other guns I have, but never purchased a holster for, I ordered one each for two of them.  Really hoping that one or both might just also work for the R51s, both with CT Laserguards.

The first one being for my CZ Compact, (no laser or other protruding parts.)  It is very similar to the one that Cameron posted here, but by a diferent company.

Remove an inch or inch and a half of stitching right in front of where the trigger guard stops on the CZ, and restitch it straight across, and it will hold the R51s as well.  Shoe shop, here I come!

The other is a hybrid for the Ruger SR9c, IWB, that has extra reinforced belt holes along wth metal belt clips for wearing IWB.

Converting it to OWB would be as easy as removing those said metal clips.   And it too, holds the R51s with the lasers just fine as is..  Have been wearing that one, IWB, with one of the R51s all afternoon ands its one, if not the most comfortable yet.

Closest RK here is clean accross the state, over on the St Louis side.

Over here on the west side, we have the Family Center, ( baby chicks this week), but no guns!

Along with a few scattered Orchen stores.
Same problem, no  guns.

I can't imagine the tiny amount of bullet rotation having a larger influence on the protector that the threadforms or how tightened it was.

I mean, anything is possible, but yeah.

One, no. after a box yes. the bullet accelerates in one rotational direction, the gun is torqued in the other. the reaction to the bullet is very sudden, the reaction from your hand much slower. Happens on both my .22 (S&W 2206) and .45 (FNX45T). HKs with RH threads have an oring I think. Locktite also works if you run that way.

for $125, sign me up.

Yep, my point as well, I just didn't write it up as well.
Basically, vibration alone, (and bbls do vibrate!), let alone torque, will loosen threads.

Now, the common thing to stop such, a lock washer wouldn't look so good!  ;D
But a little low/medium strength lock tight should do the trick if it tends to happen..

That said, my brother once bought an old Springfield .3006  that had been re-barreled, sporterised, with what appeared to be a washer installed between the bbl and the receiver, all machined down, and one could see that the metals did not match at all!  He didn't like what I had to say about his complete lack of noticing, or caring!  I wouldn't have shot it on a bet!,,(Good thing that he doesn't read this forum!)

Gee, I wish we had an RK store close here!
I had never heard of them prior to this forum.

Hi Chris!
Welcome here, from  MO.

Binghampton, my ancestors came through there, in something like the 1830s
Closing in on 200 years ago now.
And that was after almost 200 years previously in CT.
(Just saw 7th great grandfather's house on the history channel a few nights ago.  Built in 1673, Wallingford, CT.)  The story is that George Washington stopped and held what would be called a "press conference" today, under the old elm tree in the front yard.  (Called the Elm Tree house for years after.  It was already 103 years old when GW swung by on his way back from Philly after being named General of the Continental Army!)
Binghampton had a different name back in the early 1800s.
Chenango, if I remember right.

AF and things that went BOOM when dropped, huh?
Been to both of those as well.
AF first, and then 39 years of producing the things that go BIG BOOM, when dropped!

A couple of P320s here, that I need to send in and get updated with their "drop test fix"!

Something else with them, I can not bring myself to park either one in an IWB!

OWB, maybe but just havent done so as yet.
The triggers are more sensisitive than the R51 and NO SAFETY!

Have a Steyr .40, the very same way.
Gonna have to take a lesson from Blackie and convert to OWB and long shirt tails!

But the derision comment is kind of funny.
I know its out there, but my single personal instance of it was very, very mild.
I think the LGS, where I had done busines prior, didnt want to go there.

Better to just not go there and just say that they had none, never mentioning that maybe they would order one.

Wait, two instances actually, forgot, I tried to rent one at one indoor range.  Only a "sorry, we dont have one to rent", and a curious look.

The next place was only too happy to order one, just prior to the Thanksgiving rebate!  Just my luck!

But the second one came from Cabelas, on good sale price, plus the Christmas rebate.  Which just came last week BTW.

Hey, do you guys ever notice how many guests show up on here?

I would guess that it runs somewhere between 2 to 6 or 7 guests per member, at any given time.

Seems that there is still a bunch of interest out there.

Lots of nibbles, but slow on the real "swallow the hook"!

That term may well irk some folks, but look at the members here that own more than one of these guns!

Never believed in Phil until now!

But after 81 years, this GH Day sure called it!
So far anyway!

Turned bad the very next day and getting worse as the days go along!

Enough, call it off!

Thanks Blackie.
I am pretty well set on holsters now, after modifying this last one.

Even enough to do some switching around now and then.
But I will send you a couple of pictures that you might enjoy.

I do have to learn and get set up to post some.
Just havent got around to cutting down the quality so as to be able to post them.
Seems sort of like having to remove some of a new roofing job, just to pass code!  (Been there, did that!)

Well, that is two drop tests passed!
Some where on here, I mentioned mine!

Oh yeah, it was in "dedicated holsters"!

The wife and I sort of did the same thing with only a CT pocket holster!
But mine hit concrete in the drive way.
Hit both a corner of the slide and the frame. 
Roughed them up enough that they needed a bit of sanding.
