This is my first 1911 and was not looking to buy this pistol but my my wife saw me drooling over it at a gun show last weekend and said happy Valintins Day and told me to get it After cleaning the CBOB and re-oiling the pistol and worked the slide a few hundred times, I took it out for its first trip to the range. I cant remember ever shooting a 1911 before, so this was a treat for me. My first 100 rounds I used Remington UMC 230 ball and only DW mags My next 50 were Federal Champion 230 ball and also started using a Wilson 8 round mag My last 50 were Remington umc again and still using the Wilson mag. My first shot was right in the X and that put a big smile on my face. I then emptied both mags in the black, shot 200 rounds without a hitch; nothing but flawless action. The only thing that broke down was me after 150 rounds, my groups fell off. This pistol has to be one of the nicest guns I have ever shot!!! I love the trigger and the way it feels in my hand. I think this may be my new carry pistol. MY first 3 targets two mag's each.
