Default American Classic Commander

I think that I have an addiction... Last night I happened to go by academy sports and they had this one. I couldn't help myself.

Range report... I took this baby out today and ran 100 rounds through her... Overall I am pleased. I had a few ftf with the ACT mag that came with it, not sure if it was mag related or not but didn't have any trouble with the other mag I was using.

nice looking gun, i like the stainless. im 99.9% sure that your FTFs were mag related, i have two High Standard govt 1911s and they come with the same mags and they were garbage,i replaced them with wilson combat ETMs.

how much did she run you?

Trust this old man and do yourself a favor and call Aaron Monday AM @ Tripp Research (877.837.9445) and order one Gen II Cobra for your gun. (Tell him canebrake said hi.) Run the Cobra mag and if for any reason you find it less than flawless, I'll buy it from you including shipping to you and to me! My money is on you ordering more Cobra Mags. Yes, they are that good!

Before you buy any mag, read the following;

Tripp’s Cobra Magazine Test

I bought a kimber pro carry II

1911 and Hollow Points

1911 magazine question, Cane..Anyone

Upgrade your Mags

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

here's some of mine after some minor changes. changed out the grips and grip screws, mag release, slide release and thumb safety. using compound i removed some of the shiny finish making it more dull finished.
