First 7 shots. Left group were my first few, center after I got used to the platform

Fifty shots later..

All shots taken at 8yds


I had a couple problems with feeding on one of the factory mags. I through that mag back in the bag and no problems after.

I don't like the Black on Black sights and look forward to some hi viz sights.

I will be buying more 1911's for the collection.

Its gorgeous! My husband wants a 1911 so bad (even though he's never shot one) so I think that may be his birthday present. It looks fairly accurate (duh) so how's the trigger on a scale of 1-10?

Thanks! It's extremely accurate and it being my first one my range report doesn't do it justice.

Seriously a 10! Very crisp, short reset and great break
