Hello addicts, I've been wrestling with sending a CQB I have back to the mothership for a flanged barrel installation from a regular bushing setup. Would anyone on here have a flanged barrel on a 1911 and can compare it to non-flanged barrels? 1) It's been many moons since I've tried a flanged barrel, and I just can't remember what it was like. I've never owned one, only tested. 2) I have another 1911 in .45 so I am more looking to trying something new. Something to possibly take the "edge" off of the hotter .45 ACP loads which are common in self-defense loads, and for a more enjoyable range trip. If anyone has a flanged barrel, are my expectations in line with what I'll be getting in terms of recoil reduction/muzzle flip reduction? Just taking the edge off instead of a dramatic change?
