    Well, after dabbling in various plastic for the last year... I decided I missed shooting 1911s enough to get back into it.... sort of. :whistling:

    Picked it up yesterday and ran 100 rounds though it today with Knedrgr. Need to take up a little pretravel out of the trigger and change out the sights to my usual 10-8 setup, but this is a sweet sweet shooter.

    The pre-travel is something we noticed pretty quickly.
