Got to a very chilly range yesterday and we ended up staying for two and a half hours LOL. Shot my new Sig Sauer 1911 .22 LR. Used mostly the ARMSCOR ammo I got for $22 for 500 brick. Ran two mags through without an issue. Shot from about 10 yds at first and had a fairly tight grouping high and left. So we took it to the bench and adjusted back sight a little right and swaped the tallest front sight for the middle height of the three provided. I then shot a group of 10 and put all within 3" of the bullseye. I am very happy. I ran about 200 rounds through it and had only one misfired round and with one mag full I had an issue with extraction. Two did not extract and they were from the same mag. The rest of the day I had no issues at all. Do not know if the extraction issue was something I did with loading that one mag, the 18 degree weather, the ARMSCOR ammo or being just a hiccup with a new gun and extractor. In any event that happened early on and then no issues the rest of the day.

We also took our .22 Marlins and had a blast and also my future son in laws .223 Bushmaster. Man that was a blast. I never shot one before. Also his Ruger Single six .22 along with my Taurus .40 S&W and his Colt .45 ACP. We had a very good day out and then a few beers at the gun club after. I think I love my soon to be son in law LOL.

It sounds like you had a great time. Glad the new gun worked out for you and that you have a good relationship with you soon to be SIL. Thats an important thing and your daughter will be thrilled by this too.

JUNKKING, any ideas on the extraction issue I had?? Could it have just been the way I loaded the mag?

i'll throw in.... if not already done, just clean and oil the weapon paying attention for any scoring where there's metal on metal. If your issue is the weapon, it will show quickly. But to me it sounds like a hiccup and wouldn't worry about it until any issues frequently repeat.
