Discussion in '1911 Forums' started by bobtail1911, Nov 25, 2010.

  1. Whats your favorite 38 super in 1911? Or what do you think is the "best"? (I know thats subjective too :upeyes: )

    Somewhere in the air.
    I chose the Colt Special Combat Government and have been more than pleased.

    I only buy them in 45ACP, but the 38 Super was actually the only cartridge designed specifically for the 1911. :cool:

    I don't know about the "best" Super you can buy, but I will say I love both of mine.:wavey: It's an excellent cartridge and there are quite a few manufacturers offering 1911s chambered in 38 Super.

    I do not own any in .38 super but in 9mm. I am very pleased with my Springfield Custom Carry and I am sure I would be pleased with in .38 super as well.

    In .38 super I like .38 super fan's RRA.

    I second that.



    Not sure I can make any personal recommendations. I have a few .38 supers, but they were all custom builds and all have compensators and dot sights.

    I wish the 9x23 would have took off. That would have made sweet carry option with modern loadings such as Gold Dots, HSTs, etc.

    Unfortunately, my only 38 Super is this Witness Limited.

    Its a great shooter though.

    It's a fun gun, I enjoy it.
    Recoil is mild and the gun is pretty controllable.

    I think so Mark.

    I may have showed it to you the first time you were here.
