I was going to add this to my original thread on my new gun but can't find it now. An unexpected opportunity to move into a much nicer place delayed my first trip to the range with my new .45. It's a pretty boring report anyway. I only went through two 50 round boxes of 230 grain FMJ but the gun functioned flawlessly. Felt recoil was neglible as you would expect from a full size stainless 1911. The trigger is great breaking at around an estimated 4 lbs with no creep at all. The gun is much more accurate than I am. The trigger and inherent accuracy let me shoot it better than any other gun I have with the possible exception of my S&W 686 in single action mode. Of course the 686 has much more recoil so follow up shots are faster with the .45. I can't wait to shoot it again.
