1911 general?

Does anyone have experience with Auto Ordnance 1911s? I want to get a 1911.
>>
The only two magazines I have yet to have issues with are Kimber and Wilson combat.
>>
are 1991's unwashed serf tier?

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.
>>
>>28503358
>>28503363
Nice range officer. I got one in 9mm. I GOT IT BECAUSE THE NEXT YEAR THEY WERE OFF THE CALIFORNIA SAFE HANDGUN ROSTER OK
>>
>>28503698
I got a used one with a bunch of custom work done to it. Can't wait to go to the range with it.
>>
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.
>>
>>28503358

Wilson 47D magazines, always. I use them in carry and competition guns in 45acp and 40sw. Can't go wrong. Legendary.
>>
>>28503698
I hear the 9mm has problems.

That's not a range officer
>>
>>28505206
What is it then?
>>
Cobra mags, designed by Virgil Tripp, best mags out there but not the cheapest
>>
PT1911, average quality, with some recoil spring and barrel upgrades it has potential to be good. Want a double stacked LLama.
>>
>>28506598
Oh and I reccomend Wilson Combat, Archangel, and Kimber. GI are functional. Archangel are cheap, Wilson are medium priced but good. Kimber are good but expensive.
>>
>>28506606
New kimbers are not that good but the old ones are great
>>
>>28506494
No idea but it's not a range officer.
>>
>>28503358
My Mil-Spec has been flawless with Wilson Combat magazines. Haven't tried CMP mags but, I have heard of a few issues with them and just stuck with WC.

>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.

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?
>>
>>28506786

The OP pic is a "Loaded" model

>extended guide rod
REEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE
>>
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).
>>
>>28506859
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.

>>28506868
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.

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.
>>
>>28506819

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.
>>
>>28514281
Did you just spray paint it black? lmao
>>
>>28506816
My range officer's grips don't have that. When did you get yours?
>>
>>28514555
been use the engine paint and heated it up in oven so basically cz82 level or p1 level of finish..
>>
>>28503502
My dad had a colt 1991 years ago, pretty tight and solid but I haven't played around with many other 1911s.

I saw him shoot a squirrels head off at 15-20 yards, so there's that.
>>
>>28503944
Naw mine has been flawless so far.
>>
>>28513770
yes of course. Had gus the m1 garand guy do some work to it. I actually open carried it in virginia to keep the cough umm bad guys away

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.
>>
>>28515263

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.
>>
>>28514281
Where'd you get the parts kit.
I want to build a beater but sarco is essentially permanently sold out.
>>
My first 1911 was a remington r1. It was alright.
>>
>>28515263
ive got one of those stock up on recoil springs they wear out and should be replaced after 500-800 rounds if you want it to stay reliable
>>
>>28515598

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.
>>
>>28515644
that sounds like the guns broken contact ria and have em fix it
>>
>>28515684

I did. They're emailing me the shipping label tomorrow but I've never sent a gun in for service so I'm not 100% on how the process works. Their CS is supposed to be pretty good.
>>
>>28515456
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.

I don't own a 1911. I own a G19 and G20. I'm not ashamed but I do want one.
