What are some good mags I should purchase. What was /k/ first 1911?
Does anyone have experience with Auto Ordnance 1911s? I want to get a 1911.
Oh, get CMP Power Mags 10 rounds. For your 8 rounds needs WC ETM mags work pretty good.
My first was a Springfield Mil-Spec. I've had good luck with Shooting Star and the current production Colt magazines.
I inherited this Colt Gold Cup National Match as my first gun and first 1911 a few weeks ago. I've since changed the grips to some colt ones I found at an LGS. Put 125 downrange on my first outing with no issues using Colt mags.
>What are some good mags I should purchase.
Wilson. 47D if you don't wanna spend too much. ETM if you got dosh to burn.
>What was /k/ first 1911?
Same model as OP, except my mine was non-NM serialized model so the fit-finish wasn't as nice and it still had Imbel-Brazil stamped on it.
Sold it, got a Colt.
Now about to get another Springfield so that, much like the first one I owned, I can use it as a base to build a M45 CQBP clone.
Sights and front slide serrations are a dead giveaway.
When did the new ones start, dates please.
Same question for remington too if anyone knows.
I'm always hearing new remingtons are shit, but when did old remington stop and new remington begin?
First and only, thus far. Still poorfag, still learning the magazines that like feeding, and so far only have one. Mec-Gar or some shit.
Gun itself is Girsan brand, and I had to break it in a bit because the damn finish was inside the slide rail and caused excessive drag. After cleaning it off a bit, it cycles beautifully (as long as I have the right fucking magazine).
There is nothing horrifically wrong with SA's 2 piece guide rod, however I would definitely recommend OP switch it out for a GI rod or a 1 piece setup.
After a few hundred rounds, that rod does start to come loose, no matter how hard to tighten it down.
First was an old old Colt beater. Half rusted and completely neglected, but gave it some love and had it at least shooting again. That was more of a hand-me-down though.
First 1911 I went out and bought was an RIA A1 GI. Great little ghetto 1911, at most ammo reliably, good times.
I'll agree with this, nothing catastrophically wrong with a full length rod, but nothing really gained either. Added bonus of having a GI is that if you get some sort of bad jam where the slide doesn't want to budge, you can use a flat surface/edge to basically jam the slide back and dislodge the stuck casing or whatever is going on. You do not get that convenience with a full length guide rod.
I would STRONGLY reccomend getting a hammer like mine because I can shoot rubber bands with this thing and its fuckin fun
Just finished my frame recently no brand "ghost gun" 80 frame and jig from stealth arms parts kit from sarcos. 100 round through .runs flawlessly.
Well Ron Cohen has been involved in Kimber since 1996 but pistols made in the early-mid 2000's weren't problematic. I have a 2008 full size and it's been great.
As I recall the first bad reviews started cropping up around 2007-2008 with compact models and MIM parts breaking.
My first 1911 was a Ruger SR1911 but I couldn't justify having $600 tied up in it when it was no better than a $400 Rock Island - cast frame and all. I also didn't like the finish on it.
I bought this 3.5" RIA for $380 out-the-door and it's a blast to shoot. Just need to put some paint on the GI sights; they're fucking impossible to see indoors.
Also, could someone recommend some (cheap) narrower grips with more texture and possible finger grooves depending on how you guys like those? I'm need to the 1911 game and in the market for grips.
Thanks for the advice. I ran about 100 rounds through it so far without issue but I'll keep an eye on it. Did you have any issues with the safety? My plunger won't go out far enough so the thumb safety falls out with the hammer cocked and the safety in the safe position.
Not a big deal since I just use it at the range and leave it on fire, but still stupid.
paid a vist to their store when on my way back home from New York , I think they still have few parts kit left at store but just not on the web,so you may call them to confirm see if they can ship them.
>What was /k/ first 1911?
I don't own a 1911. I own a G19 and G20. I'm not ashamed but I do want one.
