    Has anyone got to shoot one of these yet I'm curious how it performed if so!A little over 3,000
    rounds through mine. Smooth. Wonderful trigger. Fit and finish to be proud of.

    After an additional 2,000 or so rounds I have come to reasonable terms dealing with the SR1911
    double-feed situation I brought up at the beginning of this thread. The solution is using a
    different mag...

    Its a bit odd that your mags would let one round come out and then strip another out...It is a
    bit odd, but let me expand just a bit. Frequently, if I press one cartridge out of the magazine
    with my t...

    So your problem is solved...??Getting closer. I'm planning a full report next week.I talked
    with Ruger. They couldn't have been nicer or more cooperative. They're sending me two more
    magazines to work...

    With the help of all of you here, I believe we have identified the problem. From my experiences
    with a lengthy (fun) session at the range yesterday, I believe the SR1911/Ruger magazines is
    quite sensi...

    Or changed out the recoil spring either.I will take this and not mentioning reloads as sound
    advice. I was contacted by Ruger (e-mail) and they suggested sending the gun back to them.

    It sounds to me that you need a lighter recoil spring. The recoil spring is slowing the slide
    too much so that it's not ejecting the case properly. Try a "standard GI" recoil spring or
    slightly hotter...

    SR1911 Double-FeedAs of yesterday, I now have 500 rounds through the Ruger SR1911 I purchased
    three weeks ago. I have a double-feed situation I'd like to throw up for discussion on this and
    several ot...

  • Posted in thread: RWS Ammo at Walmart on 06-26-2010 at 07:13 PM
    At my local Walmart I'm able to purchase RWS 9mm for $12.97 a box. Just this past week I did
    some rather extensive ammunition testing in my Beretta 92 FS and my CZ 75 B. I tested Fiocchi,
    Remington, W...
