I asked you guys a while back about which stainless 1911 I should get (http://www.thefirearmsforum.com/showthread.php?t=86555
) and I got great help from everyone. Well, I ordered the Dan Wesson and when I went to pick it up there was a series of large circular gouges in the right side of the slide. The culprit was the grip screw. It was apparently loose in the box and wedged between the slide and the box and rubbing the whole time. Well, I sent it back and then the store owner (a good friend) said wait up I just got something in you might like instead. And he took out a Kimber Stainless TLE II; its the same as the custom stainless II but comes with grip strap checkering and night sights. The first thing I did it to replace the Mag with a Wilson Combat and the grips with double diamond Walnut.
Rubber grips on a $1000 gun, for shame!
Here she is:
I finally got to the range on Thursday and I put exactly 372 rounds through it in a few hours. I have went through 4 fifty round boxes of 230gr. Magtech FMJ and 2 fifty round boxes of 230gr. Federal FMJ. Finally I went through 72 rounds (8 mags loaded 8+1 each) of my carry load 230gr. Hordady TAP +P to test for relaibility after I went through all of the FMJs.
IT NEVER JAMMED!!
No problems at all
Here is the last target of the Hornady TAP +P load at 17 yards:
Thanks for the help everyone!!
