    I have a new operator and noticed the brass has dings on the head of the case is this normal? It ejects the brass with authority the ammo was WWB and other loads, all have the same marks I have shot about 50 rounds out of the pistol.

    Thanks

    A coworker of mine has a Smith 1911 that does that but it was the extractor. We took note of the way the round was when fed in the chamber to be able to tell what was causing it. He didn't care since he wasn't reloading it.

    no big deal. as long as the gun functions don't go fixing it! reload the cases until they don't work. you will still get lots of relaods out of a case so marked.

    Accuracy question: At 25 yards, does your Operator shoot just to the right, about 1" high from center? (230 Golden Saber's)

    Mine did until I hit the 300 round mark. Now it will hold a nice clover leaf groups if I do my part.

    My groups have tightened up just shot it again I would say it shoots better than me since I am the one that causes flyers.

    wasn't the gun, it just took you 300 rounds to figure your part out. happens to the best of us sometimes.
