Sorry - I hit the send button too soon.
As mentioned in my prior post from a week ago, I just purchased a Dan wesson cbob. I was able to take it to the range for the first time today.
Quick range report ...
Ammo used was 50 Rounds of Remington fmj and 100 rounds for WWB fmj.
The gun is absolutely amazing and fits perfectly in my hand. The first 30-40 rounds felt a bit sluggish. Things felt much smoother as more rounds were fired.
I followed the manufacturers instructions and cleaned and re- lubed the gun after the 1st 50 Rds
The gun is definitely more accurate than I am.
I however did experience a total of 9 failure to feeds. I was using the factory supplied checkmate mags.
One of the guys at the range -which happens to be quite an expert with 1911's- checked the gun and told me the ftl is common during the break in period. Apparently I did not apply enough lube. I was told the "wetter the better!"
Here's a close up shot of the targe at approx 12 yards:
And here's a shot of failure to load(s):
Any thoughts and recommendations regarding breakin period and proper lubrication is, as always, appreciated.
