If you have a wal-mart close by, check out their art & craft section.
They have alot of florescent paints that are VERY bright, worth lookin at.
I put orange on the front, green on the rear...huge pop in very bright color.

Talon Grip Gen2 Update + Shield's New Big Brother

After installing the Talon Grips Gen2 rubber grips and test firing 200 rounds without issue, I've come to like them. They are secure and have restored my faith in Talon Grips.

As you recall from Post #5, the Gen1 grips started and ended at the backstrap. The repeated use of the gun caused the grips to fail. Other folks reported that the failure had also happened to them. The Gen2 style wraps around and the end tucks under the beginning of the grip tape to reduce peeling.

Its current carry configuration:




I liked them so much that I bought a set for my newly acquired M&P40 FS. I traded my M&P9c for it. I already have parts for the pistol to make it an all-around like my Sig Sauer P320.

Details of the M&P40 can be found here:

Nice thread. The mag guts setup is certainly something I am interested in for my shield...

Very interesting in your step-by-step format. I'm new to this site and do not currently own a Shield , but am meaning for it to be my next purchase. Thanks for your time and effort.

Standard magazine change drill. Magazine hit the floor and innards popped out. The MG basplate had broken. I was able to find the follower, but floorplate was nowhere to be found.

I emailed MG to see if they would replace. I'm sure that they'll make it right, but the broken baseplate is a little unsettling.

Bummer about the base plate.
While I've been using the original MagGuts for a few years now, I just ordered a couple of the Gen2 Plus2 sets to try out last week. They should be here tomorrow.

That would have sucked in a self defense situation

Where this concerns me is this was a normal mag change/drop. If it broke with that amount of force, what would happen during a double feed where I'm stripping the mag out and chucking it on the floor before clearing and loading a fresh mag?

That thing would probably shatter preventing the mag from being used again after the other mags are empty.

I received an email from MG today. My case was the first example of this type of malfunction and they are assuming that it was a defective part.

Replacement locking plate and baseplate are en route as a warranty replacement.

I'll report back accordingly.
