    Bought a brand new ATI Commander ( 4.25 ) couple of months ago and left it with my gunsmith.

    This is the parts list:
    Action job 1911 ( 70 series)
    Refinish Cerakote matte black
    Throat for hollow points
    Wolff variable recoil spring 16lbs
    Wilson Combat
    - Slide stop
    - Extended thumb safety
    Ed Brown
    - Hardcore hammer
    - Sear
    - Disconnector
    - Nowlin commander guide rod

    Why do all that to a cheap 1911?
    Because i can :tongueout:

    Only shot 50 fmj rounds before taking it to gunsmith, it wouldn't Federal HST ammo at all. Accuracy was good , about 5 inch group, off hand from 25 yards. I could tell it needed a stronger recoil spring than factory.
    Now it feeds everything, recoil is nice and smooth, average group was 3 inch. I did have 4-5 fliers but I contribute that to operator error.
