What a bonus. New GC NN shows arrives yesterday, and today is a day off work. First off to Vance's Shooter Supply to get some ammo. Blazer Brass 230 FMJ, and PMC 185 JHP. On sale, so I got 150 rounds of each. Tried to find a holster. Good luck. 1911 rail guns must be few and far between. Picked up a Kydex OWB paddle, with a nice Taurus logo. I'm getting a Kydex molded, and a hybrid from Garrett. A few of the staff at Vance's gave the gun a thorough once over, and they were impressed with the fit, the attention to detail, and trigger. They told me the magazines were tuned to the gun (they could tell by how the magazine ejects) Off the New Albany Shooting Range. Same reaction to those that saw it there. 100 rounds. Ran perfect, like a Rolex. The shredder grips and the checkering allowed easy handling. Guncrafter sights, which are their version of Hienie Ledge Straight 8s, were very good, The wide rear U notch, .160" (IIRC), gave a plenty of light on both sides of the front post. I was thinking about TruGlo TFOs, but I figured I'd go with what GC thought would work best. POA is POI, as best I can tell (it'll take a little more practice to make that statement with authority). The trigger is real nice. Very crisp. Probably just under 4 lbs. AT 30 feet, 100 rounds made a 2 inch hole, with a half dozen or so I pulled an inch or 2 away from the hole. It's criminal that such ugly shooting wouldtake place with such a nice gun, but my last 250,000 rounds were 99.9% Glock. Returned to the range with my 21 year old son a few hours later. If he liked it, I'd get him a GC too. He's a Glock speed demon, very accurate, very fast, and very attached to his 17L and 19. His performance at the range was good, but he's staying with his Glocks for now. He says he's a Ninja guy, and the GC is a Harley. I'm a Ninja guy too, but I love this GC. Second range visit was much better for me, Slow fore at 30 feet, I shot 6 groups of 8, none bigger than 1.5 inches, with zero flyers. I had one occasio where the slide would return to battery on a full magazine, using the slide release. The round was stripped out of the magazine properly (or at least it looked straight to me). I was using a generic magazine, but as the round was stripped, I don't know if that was the cause. It felt like the slide wasn't coming forward with enough force, Any ideas would be helpful. Anyway, it didn't repeat that problem. Maybe because it's a tightly fit gun. This gun is more accurate than me. It has great visual appeal, both to me, and to all who saw it. I showed it to a fellow at New Albany. This guy is a 1911 guru, a former LEO, and well regarded as one of the best 1911 shooters in the state. He gave the the GC a full exam. This fellow shoots and wins with Wilsons, Browns, and RRAs. He wins almost all the time. He commented on the checkering, the grips, the safeties, the sights, the trigger, and the fit. I asked him what he'd change, and he said "nothing". His stamp of approval tells me I must have a better eye for quality than I thought I had. The weapon, by the way, was built by Dave, who is Alex's brother-in-law, and who Alex said was a Supergrade gunsmith. Alex did the QC. When I learned this, I was at first concerned. Not now. This NN feels better and shoots better than any handgun I've handled. I'm definitely getting more of these. Maybe a .50, maybe a SS, a CCO...maybe all of them. Who knows, maybe my son will change his mind, and I'll get him one too.
