    Fun video from a Hoser buddy of mine running an old school USPSA Open Division Major 9x19 in slow motion (Docter dot). That's our home club in Thousand Palms (private).

    The slow-mo is interesting. He is not resetting the trigger until the recoil cycle is complete. Assuming this was a slow fire test?

    Yeah, it was just for the video.

    His recoil spring is too strong.

    My guess is that the very slight muzzle dip noted in the video is caused by the 'spring-back' of the isometric tension in the shooting frame, not an 'over-weight' recoil spring.

    In my opinion, for an experienced shooter with a good grip and shooting frame, the minor muzzle oscillations demonstrated in the video are normal.

    For a novice shooter or a shooter with a 'bad' grip and/or frame, the oscillations would be much worse.

    Just sayin'... :)
