    I shot it today and liked shooting it.

    I shot some HP and ball and truncated lead point, to include 147 gr HP, all fed.
    I don't like how the second rnd in the mag rides with the nose a bit down with ball and long HP; but, when it is
    time to feed it must pop up because everything feeds.

    It shot high and left, but, the sights are adjustable and I may need to tweak them a little more. The only 10 ring I got was
    the shot I fired a 6 yds; why 6 because it was half way to the tgt.

    A couple of cases hit me in the head.

    Trigger is good and recoil is like a .22, but, the pistol is listed at 43 oz.

    This is a one handed gun, I get better accuracy.

    I may try painting the sights.

    Carries well, except I need a tall untucked shirt or use IWB holster, though Clean said it was not showing; however,
    my jacket was not as short as most.

    Oh, did I say I liked it?

    Outstanding purchase! I think that the 9mm 1911 is one of the most underrated guns out there. I adore mine.

    (Also, I owned a 9mm 1911 before it was cool ;) )

    I thunk I fired that one at a Texas Shoot a few years ago.

    The prevailing opinions of days past was why a 9mm in a 1911, why bother and just get one chambered in a .45 ACP like it was meant/designed to be.

    Times and opinions have changed (by many) on the 9mm, ammo crisis didn't exist, bullet designs are better in ALL calibers these days and the .45 in a 1911 was considered 'The Pistola' to have for a man who could handle/shoot one well.


    The most accurate 9mm I've ever fired was a single stack SIG 210 (?) it was a Swiss Army turn-in I believe and used the owner paid a premium for it. A sheer delight to shoot and the results I got @ 25 meters on the bull were amazingly good.

    One is required to have one in .45 before a 9 silly meter; then if you get one in .22 you must turn in your man card!

    does that include a 22 conversion?
    If you already have one you get a pass because you did not know.
