I took the Spartan to the range a couple of days ago. Once again, I ran the BoreSnake thru the barrel. The SBGO is still visible on the slide rails. After shooting, the round count is 6,025 and I have still not cleaned and oiled the pistol since the day it arrived. I'm amazed !! The SBGO is still where I put it and I have had ZERO malfunctions. The groups are starting to spread but I'm not sure it's the pistol. I took a serious fall five weeks ago and messed up my left shoulder. It could possibly be my fault about the group spread. I'll shoot more next week and will be able to tell. I may have to clean the barrel....or maybe not.
I can't say enough good about the Spartan 1911.
