Default Nice 1911's

From what I see looks like the pistols that have been received are pretty nice looking. I sense everyone is happy with them.

Any shooting results? I just quickly combed the various threads and didn't see any reports.

Look for 'range report' threads.

I had my early 45 Ithaca/Ithaca usmc rebuild out at the range yesterday. 148 rounds (all of them) without a hitch. Felt just like my Springfield Armory milspec. It did, however, give off an odor best described as a mix of hot dusty radiator and Grandma's clothes closet

Almost as if these are small time machines. For me, it was the thought that other than the CMP test firing, the last time it was used was by a member of our armed forces.

Respectfully, many people are getting nice pistols. But bear in mind that by their nature, these are not beauty queens by design or intent.

For a while about seven years back or so, it seemed everyone has getting a fantastic field grade M1 rifle that "should have been" a service grade. Of course that can happen, but the other half of the story was that proud owners were sharing photos and people who merely got "OK" rifles were not showing pictures left and right. It would not be accurate to say "all" field grade recipients were very fortunate during those few months, but it did seem that way.

Without the slightest intent to offend, I feel that a certain amount of this same condition must exist with 1911/1911A1 purchases; it is only logical.

Took mine out the other day, shot pretty much point of aim at 25yds. First 2 mags were loaded with only 2rds each in case of “going auto”. Ran fine, so went with full mags. Just wish the sights were better lol. Oh, lubed it up beforehand, very dry everywhere. Also ran it thru all safety checks before trying it.
