    Took both to the range and 300 rounds of ammo. 250 rounds of my own 200gr reloads and 50 rounds of Golden Saber 185gr.
    Custom Carry: 200 rounds of reloads and 25 of Golden Saber. The gun now has a total of 425 rounds. Not a single failure of anykind
    Concept VIII: 50 rounds of reloads and 25 of Golden Saber. Total of 525 rounds through the gun not a single failure of anykind.
    DW CBOB, sorry no rounds for you today :crying:

    Its a shame Rock River stopped building 1911s. I thought they were everything Baer is and then some.

    Its sad that one of the best 1911 builders in the world stopped to build plastic rifles.

    Very true, Al. :)

    I agree that their 1911s were much better than their ARs, respectively speaking.

    I'm not much of an AR guy, but from everything I've seen and heard, RRA ARs are mid-pack, while their 1911s were certainly top notch in every way.

    They obviously have to go where the greatest profit margins are, but its a damn shame they stopped doing something they were great at to focus on something they're OK at.

    Well played sir. :rofl: They are like the Kimber of ARs.

    Nothing like seeing a dirty Baer.....

    No, I gave up on unique as it smokes a lot. This is HP38, I like it much better.

    I agree. I like HP-38/231 much better for range loads.

    Excellent! Sounds like you had fun.

    What's with all the juice in the bottom of the dust cover though?

    So do I, but only on pivot and friction surfaces. All other surfaces are bone dry so as not to become a soot and grit magnet. ;)
