Re: More on Rock Island 1911
Run that gun on Federal 185's, or a 200Gr hard cast, and well sorted, SWC, and tell us again: Count the rounds, change mags, so as to have only the firdt round "hand cycled", into the pistol, and I'll bet you can leave black, all aroung a 'ragged hole', at the center of the bull!
As a point of information,the 1/6, or, in your case, 1/7 grouping, is a common phenomenon with 1911's.
If you 'shoot dry', as you have described, pull the slide fully to the rear, alowin a fresh mag to release the slide stop, simply release, not 'ease down', the slide, and the 'first round out' phenomena will likely be reduced!
I'll bet, with these changes, it is even a better pistol than you described!
