Default New 1911

Just got a new 1911. Put out some money's for a springer lw champion operator. And I love it. I ended up selling my hi power so it wasn't too bad of a dent but she's my new baby. She came with 5 springer mags 3 Wilson combat 8 rounders and 2 chip 10 rounders I'm a fan of the wilson myself. Probably gonna sell or trade off the springer mags. I just ordered some good leather for her also. I will be taking her to the range Tuesday and I will give a range report then.

Congratulations.

Wouldn't get rid of anything until you test it at the range. One never knows about which ones the gun will like the best.

I have shot the gun a few times before I bought it from my best friend I just haven't dedicated a full range day to it

Is this the same as what my local store calls the "GI champion"? Or is it upgraded quite a bit more?

WOW, I'm of mixed minds on this one.

Giving up a Browning Hi-Power is a painful exercise!

BUT....if one is to do it, replacing it with a 1911 does releive some of the pain.

And when the 1911 is a Springer, the relief is even greater!

Nice piece there Austin.

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!

Letting go of the browning was tough but I am happy with my choice

I'm really interested in the range report, so please don't forget to post it. My Kimber Pro & Colt Commander sizes balance better than full size. The 'light weight' makes it nice for carry. But, I'm not crazy about rails on a 1911. However, if a good performer, that wouldn't be a deal breaker & I am wanting a Springfield.

Went to the range today and put about 150 rds through it with no problems for me and I love my Wilson mags had a few ftf with the gf shooting but I think she was limp wristing quite a bit she's a whole 90 lbs and 5 ft nothing great groups I'm still not used to how short the trigger pull is it makes my browning feel like it had a mile long trigger but over all great day at the range and an amazing gun
