Finally got a 1911. Kimber Raptor II 3" barrel. I will post a pic when I can figure out how.(not sure how to resize the original photo) I should have bought a clue but I ran out of $$ after I bought the gun. Any recommendations on practice and defense rounds?
Ok, this one is mine. Still don't have this pic posting thing mastered. I don't think the grip is actually that long. (Had to do some stretching & skewing to get to fit?) There has to be an easier way to post pics other than the way I went about it.
I got it on Sat. & still haven't got to shoot it yet. It had better shoot darn good! For the money it should have come with a body guard to shoot it for me. I am chomping at the bit to shoot it. Soon,real soon!
No it usually means that it will take that much for it to loosen up the slide springes will lighten and the hammer spring will lighten up trigger will feel better and the safety and magazine release will be easier and so on
It will fell a lot better after 500+rounds last pistol I bought was my XD-45 it was my new self defense gun. My first thing I did was abuse it first day at the range. I feed it 500 rounds of FMJ's and 200 rounds of JHP's with out cleaning or disassembling. It withstood it and never failed. I cleaned it lubed it and now I know that it can take abuse plus it is going to be their for me when I need it. And after that first day to the range the trigger felt better slide was a little easier as well as the magazine and slide release.
