moparclan ... I'm fully aware of your prowess when comes to our beloved P series. You and I have chased the next best deal on P series a time or two. I, myself have 2 of the P89x's. Always looking for another one or two or maybe three ... :LOL::ROFLMAO:
Yup, bad (good) habit to get into, I was lucky enough to end up with a spare barrel, spring and box for a P89X and put a yardsale P89 in it, have used the .30 Luger barrel and it functioned fine. Still have a spare barrel and captured spring also. Have lots of ammo for the .30 cal as I have a .30 Luger Browning Hi Power and a 1920 commercial Luger.

The ammo I found was on the hot side for. 30 Luger. It was 95 grain, 1280 FPS if memory serves me correctly, which it never does. Muzzle energy was around 410 ft/lbs, so if the spring isn't new (I've never replaced it) I have high hopes. If I need to get a lighter spring for it, that's a small problem to solve.

I'll give y'all a report as soon as the ammo arrives, and I get out to the range.

If you look at my pic of my P89x you'll notice the guide rod and spring are pretty different than the 9mm rod and spring ...

Is there a range / performance report on this modified pistol yet?
