Evo 3 "generations"
« on: September 27, 2019, 06:08:15 AM »
Hi!

There are couple topics of hollow point feeding problems with "1st gen" EVO 3 S1 and pistols. Does the LE SMG version have same "generations" and problems/fixes?

Specific guns not the whole generation.  I've got 1000's of rounds through my 1st gen +p and normal HP and FMJ, including FP subsonic suppressed.

My gen 1 hasn't had any problems with anything, except those 147 gr fed American eagle flat tip with manticore mags.  Then again, the 9mm was never really designed for that taper anyway.
When people ignorant of guns make gun laws, you end up with ignorant gun laws.

I haven't had any issues with 158gr flat points in our select fire A1. All the select fire guns I've seen use the narrower gen 1 width feed ramp as well.

I've shot JHP's from a gen 1 as well without issues.
