Definitely the cure for the slick Nistan finish on the pistol. Iíve now a got a very secure grip. Just the way I like it.

Lok Veloce Gray Black




Lok Veloce Blue Black




I couldnít decide which color I liked better, so I got both and using different colors for either side.

Two Face???
Due Facce???

Too funny, I was considering both of those but got cold feet and just went with black. The Gray Black looks really great though so I'm already regretting that choice!

Thanks for the tip about Lok Grips - I hope this helps the grip issues that are hurting me.

I think theyíll make the difference that you need. Interesting multi directional pattern that works.

Iím starting to get used to her. Actually developing a consistent 1.5Ē group at 7.5 yards, 1Ē right and 1Ē high. Iím leaving my sights where they are because as I get more time on the trigger, the group keeps getting closer and closer to center.

Reliability has been 100% so far shooting a mix of 115 grain fmj from Remington, Browning, and Blazer.
Shooting 9mm out of this heavy pistol has been a joy. Recoil is really not much compared to some of the lightweight 22 pistols out these days. With my old eyesight, I end up centering the red fiber optic on my target. Lineing up the top of the front and back rear sights doesnít work for me as I canít see the sharp edges. So combat accuracy is what I shoot for with blurry sights.

With a bit of dry firing and 180 live rounds through her, the double action pull has dropped very slightly to 6 lbs 6 oz. The single action has dropped 7 oz down to 3 lbs 2 oz. Thereís still that small amount of creep on the single action, but itís smoothed out so much that I really have to look for it while dry firing. I donít notice it at all during live fire.

So after this second range day with Due Facce, my only complaint is the shortage of practice ammo. I canít shoot her as much as Iíd like to without burning through my ammo reserves, but Iíll be concentrating on getting used to this lady as a primary pistol.

Just an opinion of mine here.
Many times Iíve read remarks about this pistol on other forums that this pistol was developed for competition so itís useless as a defensive pistol. I just shake my head at this type of thinking. The way I see it, if youíre using a pistol in competition it means you are shooting it a lot!!! This means that youíve proven its reliability and you are very very very familiar with it. A persons competition pistol is probably his/hers best choice when it comes to protecting their life.
Like I said, just my opinion.
I think people get carry and home defense mixed up. It's heavy and large to carry so it's not likely one you want IWB, but at home I say throw an OLight Baldr Mini on it and it's ready to go.

Can I just say that your pistol is a very sexy Italian lady? Looks like she’s a bit younger than mine.
MrGunsandGear sure gives those OLights great reviews.

Thanks! I didn't realize when I took the photo today that I hadn't cleaned it from the last round of shooting, so it's pretty dirty in that picture! I love the 92x Performance!!!

Yeah, the OLight's are fantastic - the green laser is easy to dial in perfectly too. They are also super bright so you are going to definitely put the intruder at a disadvantage when you shine that bright light in their eyes and that green laser on them.
