    I need to ask a question that has been gnawing at me. When shooting a pistol, in particular 45 ACP out of a Government 1911, does the muzzle rise caused by recoil influence the the relationship between Point Of Aim (POA) and Point Of Impact (POI)? For example, if someone has a weak grip, will...

    I do like my Remington 1911 R1 Ultralight. Having an aluminum frame to recoil on it is felt more, of course. I was expecting that, and it is tolerable. I was wondering, though, if I replaced the stock grips with others, such as wrap around rubber grips, would this help at all with recoil...

    I've been shooting a Kimber Classic Target II for a number of years and have thousands of rounds down range with it. During the winter months, our local club shoots NRA bullseye and I find that I can no longer be competitive with iron sights. I decided it was finally time to embrace the red...

    I have a couple of questions here for someone with more knowledge of spring application then I have. Question 1.) if I stretch a spring a little bit can I get a little more weight on the return? We are talking recoil spring? Say I have a 22# Spring. if I stretch it a bit, can I gain a little...

    Strange question for you guys and it's a first for me. I was cleaning my TRS and since the pistol is 9 years old I thought I'd swap out the recoil spring with a brand new one that I had for my TRP. My sequence is to pull the slide stop out first to disassemble, so my re-assembly is to place a...

    I purchased a new recoil spring for my ATI FX M1911 GI Commander, I installed the new spring & upon shooting it, something felt off. The recoil was real snappy, the spring was a 18 lb spring from Fusion Firearms, from the reviews of Fusion's 1911 I thought there well priced products would work...

I'm looking for some input on the suggested recoil spring weight to run with the 147gr round. I...

    So at the ripe old age of 53, I'm starting to have some arthritis in my thumbs. Here in my corner of nowhere, we've managed to get some guys together for informal 3 gun stuff. I have been using my BP commander size 1911(see profile pic). Thing is I like to shoot a fair amount to stay on top, and...
