What a gun, purchased last week and made it to the range today. Wow!!! I know there are bigger names and symbols when it comes to 1911's, but can I tell you this gun is solid, accurate and down right beautiful to shoot. 1 FTF on the 1st burst last round and after that not 1 hiccup. By know means a handgun expert or a rookie at this point owner of several pistols ( Glock, S&W, Ruger, Sig and Taurus) this is now my favorite pistol. May one day look at other models for the shear pleasure of owning a 1911. History.
