Thanks for posting this.
I couldn't wait and found a AirBNB cottage in town for $75 a night. Smile

Jerry-

Regarding ammo and recoil springs:

I was only able to get half a case of the low-recoil ammo that I prefer and the P320F9 likes.
The rest will be NATO spec. I'm bringing one 15lb 1911 recoil spring (well broken in), one new 15lb and one new 16.5lb. Should that selection handle the ammo or should I order one more heavier recoil spring?

From the other thread about recoil springs and muzzle dip, I know you have done some testing.

What do you think?

If by NATO spec you mean something like the 124 winchester at 1140 ft/sec then that 16.5 will do. It is only about 140 power factor. I load shoot 133 on a 15lb spring. That being said, MOAC is high round count. Lighter the better so you can get the most out of the training and not need to worry as much about hands. Fed 147 blazer 115. All pretty light.

That sounds about right. I couldn't get the lightest stuff in 4,000 round quantity so I got what I could. I'll bring the 16.5 lb and the stock recoil spring assembly. That should cover it.
I changed the extractor assembly today and the extraction issues disappeared.
I'll have it dialed in by October Wink
