1911 clone problem range report
well as some of you know I bought home a Llama..the 9mm kind, not the animal type.
when I got it i picked up some Herter's 9mm steel case, berdan primed. if I had looked harder I would have noticed the steel case and passed on them, but al I saw was the cheap price.
well today I took out the Llama to "excercise" it. the only problem I encountered was when fired, it would cycle another round just fine..but it would fail to cock the hammer for the next shot, the hammer ends up in the 1/2 cock position. after disemmbling it and rechecking, several times with the same result. I was pretty bummed out....then I had a thought!
after several houres I found this "cheap" ammo has a velocity of around 1125 fps. and is consitered "weak" for a 1911. so heres the question..is this correct? other than this I found the Llama easy to handle and suprisingly accurate! btw..the hammer cocks properly whe slide is manuelally operated.
will get pictures up in a day or so.
As I get Older, I have come to understand why our Founding Fathers chose our countrys motto to be "IN GOD WE TRUST", somehow they knew in the future WE would come to the point that WE COULD NO LONGER TRUST THE ONES WHO RUN IT!
