I LOVE THIS GUN!!!
The trigger breaks like a glass rod.
The VZ grips are both comfortable and aggressive.
The Red fiber optic front sight glows bright.

My first 2 mags at 10yds
Shooting Remington UMC, and A.E. brass

My next 2 mags, after some sight adjustment and target patches. (I didn't get all the holes covered, just most of em)

This gun shoots great. The recoil is not as bad as I expected it to be. Kicks kinda like a .45acp. I am more accustomed shooting a 9mm or .40, so the recoil impulse was different. All I all it was tolerable, my wife even shot it!!

Now, I did have some problems with the mags popping out upon recoil. The Kimber mag got to where it wouldn't do it any more, the factory mag never did get any better. Ill work on them a little when I get the Ed Brown book out to sweeten up the slide. No big deal.

I would recommend this gun to anybody looking for a 10mm 1911 for under $800. This is for sure a keeper!!

I hate you right now.
My biggest regret is selling my ria 1911. Impossible to replace in this stupid state. I'd Love to have that gun. You suck.
