I only had time to shoot 100 rounds at the gun club before they cut me off.

Shot from about 30 feet and made a big hole in the target in the picture.

Not all 100 through that target though.

I'd say that's P.O.B.G

Nice gun!

Thank you. Couldn't be happier with my first 1911.

My new favorite gun. I now can say I understand 1911itis

I cannot get the recoil spring out of the gun for some reason. It slides a good ways out then seems to get hung up. Any suggestions?

Maybe one of the spring coils is getting caught by the barrel bushing, make sure you turn it out of the way.

I have it turned all the way out of the way but it still won't come out.

It's probably just stuck on the guide rod, take the slide off and look.

It is stuck on the spring guide. Just remove the barrel bushing and then the slide. You will be able to then remove the recoil spring.:)

The spring is closed on one end. It's the end you put on the the guide rod.

The open end goes into the spring plug.
