First I want to thank @Karl Beining for his craftsmanship, amazing to say the least. I picked up the pistol yesterday and the fit and finish is first rate all around.

First about 125 rounds at 40’ , still getting used to the gold bar front sight but really like it. Gun functions flawlessly, no issues no matter went thru it. Combination of HP, range loads, a friend’s crappy reloads, and at all weights I had 185, 200 and 230 .grains. Rest of ammo went down range onto steel plates lots of fun . Smooth action and an impressive trigger ( great reset ). Top quality all around.

high under cut trigger guard along with 30 lpi checkering and chaos g10 slim grips make this gun act like Velcro , gun doesn’t shift when firing. So to finish up I love this gun. It has it all fit, finish, functionality and an awesome classy two tone (DLC over Hc) look. I couldn’t ask or want more . So thanks again Karl you are a craftsman and a stand up guy.

That one looks great, Karl did a very great job on that one. Everything you would want in a 1911. I hope I can send him my Colt 38super to work over one day, enjoy that 1911.

Honestly Im shocked with how this runs . I loaded 3 mags with an assortment of ammo. I throw 2-3 rounds of each type of ammo into a bag and then load up the mags while not looking. Then just load and go. You can tell the difference when it cycles but never had stoppage of any type . Just ate it all up , which is most important thing for me . Something that looks great but doesn’t run isn’t worth a damn to me, but with this gem I definitely got both. Thanks for all the replies. Anyone with a gun on Karls books all I can say is it’s worth the wait.
