    Has anyone tried any of the aftermarket bolt shroud & firing assy. My sendero seems to have slower lock time than normal. Mine does have the j-lock could that be slowing it down ?

    Yes and I have had good luck with them, but some said they did not (Not sure why) but any
    time you reduce the lock time there is potential for improvement in accuracy.

    They do reduce lock time and help some shooters But not all.

    The J-lock does not have any thing to do with the lock time , It is just a fireing pin
    enteruptor (It prevents the fireing pin from falling when activated even if the
    trigger sear is disengaged by pulling the trigger).

    the only way i would go with the lighter pin assy is if you do a lot of off-hand shooting. otherwise i would stay with the factory weight pin. make sure your spring is 26 or 28 lbs but stay away from the light pins.
