Finally got out to the range with the Rock Island MS 1911a1 this morning.

Image

Image

Took it out with the new SIG P220 and let a few fly. Only a few 'cause it was so damn cold outside I couldn't feel my fingers and reloading the mags was almost impossible. Still, it shot well. Feeding and extraction were flawless. The trigger is a little spongy compared to my other 1911s, but I must say that I am VERY impressed with this pistol. For an entry level 1911 with a 4" barrel it shot like a champ. Here's one of my best groups at 25yds...

Image

Just goes to show that you don't have to drop a bundle on a 1911 to get a solid shoot'n pistol. We'll see how she holds up over time, but I am extremely pleased so far...

Got out and put 250rds through the Spartan this morning. I have to say I'm VERY pleased with its performance. Had zero issues an no failures of any kind. The Spartan locks up tight as a drum and the action is smoothe as silk. The trigger is light and crispas well. Recoil is very minimal which allows for very fast target acquisition on follow-up shots. The adjustable rear sight was dialed in from the start and the fiber optic front post lit up like a laser. I love my .45 1911s, but this 9mm is one helluva fun shooter.

Here are two of the best targets of the day...

Ten rounds @ 10yds

Thirty rounds @ 25yds

Just installed a new 4140 bar stock steel mainspring housing with 30 LPI checkering and oversized magazine guide on the Spartan V. Also added extended bumper pads to the Checkmates. Reloads are going a lot smoother and faster now...

Switched out the grips on the RIA today to a new set of VZ Grips ETC-FRAG G10 panels in Dirty Olive...

Image

Image

I love the dual texture of the ETC panels and the FRAG pattern provides an incredibly solid grip...
