We took this little beauty to the range yesterday, and ohmygosh y'all.
I've heard so many people claim that the 1911 platform should only be in the traditional .45 acp, but this gun in 9mm is so much fun to shoot that I bet it would convert even the most die-hard traditionalist. I was a little worried at first that the 3" barrel would make it painful to shoot, but it wasn't, at all. I was also concerned about the grips, but they're the slim rubber, and very comfortable. Definitely still want to try the Hogue wrap around grips, but straight out of the box, this gun is pretty awesome.
It's also incredibly accurate! With almost every gun I've ever shot, I've had issues of shooting low and to the left (whether that's the gun, me, or both, I don't know) but I had zero accuracy issues with this 1911. It's a little tack driver, and super sweet to shoot!
The only issue I did have, was failure to extract the empty casings. Hubby says it was because I was 'limp wristing' it; but I recorded myself shooting, and I wasn't doing it that badly. He shot about 50 rounds without issue, I shot 100, sometimes with issue and sometimes without. Guess I need to learn some techniques to help with that. If anyone has any suggestions, please share!
Here's a video of me shooting it, without any FTE's
It's a great size for concealment, and a perfect fit for smaller hands, but also comfortable for larger hands too. There isn't a bad thing I can think of to say about this gun.
I absolutely love this gun, and it's definitely staying in our collection for a long time! Hubby keeps trying to "steal" it away from me, but I keep telling him it ain't gonna happen, haha!
