    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?

    I like to run 1911s wet when breaking in.

    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. ;)
