    Re: Thinking about one

    I own one and a Commander size as well. Both have been great and very dependable with high round counts. The fit and finish is amazing at such a low entry price.

    Re: Who has accidently loaded a squib?

    And I am exactly opposite with my reloads. I wouldn't shoot a match with factory ammo as it gets less checks and care than my "match" ammo. I weigh everything and then check them and recheck them. I...

    Re: ac2

    I'm not Tux but shoot the #68 LSWC's by the thousands at 1.245-1.255". I set the progressive press at 1.250" and they all fall within that range for 100% reliability in both MA 1911's. And crimp to...

    I love mine as well as the Commander series. Both have many thousands of rounds through them in competition and fun. I also carry one or the other almost daily. I do recommend spring changes early or...

    Re: new to me duo-tone commander

    ;thumbs up; Good choices on the mags and sounds good on fps. If needed I believe tuner gave info for tuning the extractor if needed.

    Re: new to me duo-tone commander

    Sounds like $$ well spent if you can't do it yourself. Magazine springs are kindda soft but I would just buy more mags instead of ACT mags that come with it. Save those for range time.

    Re: new to me duo-tone commander

    Then the recoil spring will likely fix it but if not a little extractor adjustment will also help. Waiting to see how it does with a new recoil spring :)

    Re: new to me duo-tone commander

    Might want to order the full set to have them on hand. Or change 'em all while you are at it. 18# spring is correct for the Commander size and I see no reason to change. If that doesn't take care of...

    I too enjoy shooting out back. Some of the reasons for a really high round count on my handguns. Rifle not so much as I do have neighbors close and respect their hearing as much as I can. One day I...

    So you just had to shoot the new pistol while you are still healing? Anyhow sounds like you have a plan to keep her fed because they do get hungry and must be fed often. You may even want to...

    You might try to lightly sand the areas that make contact on the shield and where it contacts. Clean and dry with brake clean and then try a little loctite on that area and assemble. The Loctite is...

    How long does Esmeralda take to ship out her in stock grips? And the biggest question is, do you get premium photos of the manufacturer? :redface:
