1911 Forums for 1911 Addicts
I bought this in early November and finally shot it today. First I immediately shipped it off to Wilson for the Ultimate Action Tune, short reach trigger, and mag guide. Then upon its return I was also supposed to have my CCO back about the same time and since it's a 40 minute drive to the range I held out. Well forget waiting any longer!
Shoots like a dream. I've never felt a softer recoiling 9mm. 1 failure-to-feed about shot 56. I fired 100 Fiocchi 115 gr, then 50 American Eagle 124 gr, followed by 50 American Eagle 147 gr, and wrapped up with 100 Federal HST 124 gr +P.
Many have probably seen this if you look in thee classified much (very dangerous thing to do).
I recently picked up another Nighthawk. A Falcon this time though. This is my second gun built by Joey Lehr, and like the first one, it is frickin' awesome. If you are reading this, Congrats Joey (ask for a raise).
This one has a few different twists to it. The slide is bare, save the NHC logo on the rear. It has a rail. And it also has a flanged barrel like a Predator would.
Went to my local gun store yesterday and a 5" Clapp jumped out at me.. Few things I didn't care for so decided to go home and do a little work. I limited myself to parts I already had sitting around.
So fit an Ed Brown thumb safety, Nighthawk trigger, Challis grip bushings, new grips, did a little trigger work to get it to a nice clean 3.5#, Flush cut and reverse 45 degree the factory barrel then shot the frame and all small parts with a matte graphite black Cerakote.
2015 is coming to an end, and most of us are probably scrambling around for that last minute gift. However, don't forget to give those ones you're wrapping those presents or staying up late putting the final touches on things for tonight a hug, a warm smile, and let them know that you treasure them most of all.
I know we are a gun forum, (or the real reason you had to get that second job to afford your addiction!) but I can't help to feel a bit nostalgic and want to let all of you know I wish you a very Merry Christmas, and only the best wishes in 2016 to you and your loved ones.
Took my son, just turned 17, and new SR1911 and Gen 4 G17 to the Range this past Saturday. I have to say we had a blast :biggrin1:. It was my son's first time shooting a pistol, his previous shooting has been a 22 rifle and 12Ga shotgun with the Scouts. Put 100 rounds thru the 1911 without a single issue using PMC 230 Grain FMJ. I was not too concerned with accuracy, well not too much anyway...
