Will there be any more M9 PTP upgrades other than EDGI 6.03 TBB?

Damn, that sucks. I wish there were some type of Hurricane performance upgrade kit for the PTP.

once again, the question is "what are you trying to achieve?"

an aftermarket part doesn't necessarily work better than the factory part.

I understand that. I have been using my M9 PTP more and more for practical shooting competitions where we have courses that are close quarters and indoors. Id like my PTP upgrade the PTP for faster cycling and possibly better durability, and a lighter trigger pull. Nothing too dramatic. Just parts that you would normally get in the HurricanE upgrade kits for the KWA glocks.

I know the gun isn't made for it, but would be nice.

Sounds more like you want fine tuning than having to buy random parts.  Many of which will definitely NOT increase "durability" of your gun.  

At most, an EdGI barrel, professionally fitted and your trigger tuned in.  Maybe a custom fabricated bearing stainless steel guide rod.

Would short stroking the slide hurt any spiggy? I hear a lot of people do that now. And talk to dobey on that guide rod!  :thumbsup:

the full stroke of the M9 is required for lockback engagement.  Likewise the distance between the battery and rebound positions are necessary for buffering the energy dispersal during fire.  The slide takes a serious beating from going back and forth.  Cut the distance and the slide will take a heavy force on cycle.

In fact, short-stroke mods is a poor practice in live firearms too.  Without significant slide redesign, I would not recommend it.

All the internals are set to a certain balance, if anything is changed or adjusted, something else needs to be compensated.

Example: When you're adjusting the trigger, take into consideration of the hammer spring.  Since the hammer spring judges a good amount of "weight" on double action.

My stock hammer spring clocks a hair over 5lbs and single action is just over 2.5lbs.

I have a question, will the newer M9 PTPs have plastic outer barrels like the Mark series?

Yes, they do now.  All of the KWA GBB pistols (current models) come standard with an high impact polymer outer barrel. :gun:
