    Somebody posted a link to the EFK Fire Dragon products web site on another thread. While I'm not in the market for a super-accurate barrel upgrade (and threaded barrels are illegal in the People's Republic of California), I'd not known of them before.

    Has anybody used their products? They're charging a premium price, so I assume they're selling some pretty high-end gear?

    I've had some of their stuff on my wish list as well. Especially their replacement recoil springs.

    I'd appreciate hearing from anybody who has an experience with these products.

    I have 2 of thier 357 sig conversion barrels for my XD40's. One took minor fitting (about a 10 min job), the other barrel was a drop in. Both barrels were quality products and thier shipping was fast. Thier CS was good the one time I called about how to fit the barrel. I would suggest that you call to confirm what you want is in stock. I was happy with both of my transactions with them.:D

    Look around, there seem to be mixed reviews with the EFK QC. I have seen at least one post of some one who had an EFK that had the locking block engagement area (not sure of the technical name) break off.

    Yup, sample size of 1 is all you need!

    A sample size of 1 is "there is a negative report..."

    Good info, thanks.

    EFK would be my last choice for a XD barrel.

    Got one.
    Wouldn't recommend it.

    'Bout 600 rounds and it started chipping at the bottom edge of the feed ramp and where it locks to the frame.
    Went back to stock. I never noticed a big improvement in accuracy anyway; some improvement, but not enough or consistently enough to convince me it was worth it.
