Ok,

After I fell in love with this gun, I’m realizing that it’s not for me.
Field stripping this pistol is not a good time for me. Not sure if it’s the arthritis, but I’m going to be putting this up for sale.
I paid 700.00 for it from a Glock guy.
If anyone is interested please let me know. I haven’t had it a month yet, I’m looking to get 650.00. I’ll throw in 2 Wilson magazines with it.
Thanks, and I hope you all have a Happy Thanksgiving!!

I can break the pistol down, clean it up and lube it then put it back together.Thats as about as advanced as I am. I’d love to learn and master this gun.


Shame you never got the chance to master the gun.

1911's are very gratifying.

I haven’t shot it. There was an issue with the ejection of the shells.
I was told to change the mags, which I did. Also, I was told to do a plunk test.. dropping a round in the chamber, then tipped it back and the round falls out.

If you havent shot it how do you know there was an issue with the ejection of the shells? Kimber mags generally work, may not be as great as wilson or Tripp but they work, adding Wilson Mags to your bag is not a bad idea though

from videos that are online, I saw some ejection problems.
I had some dummy rounds in the house, so I tried to duplicate the problem by moving the slide back and forth to eject the rounds manually.
That didn’t work out too well. Although, after further inspection, a live round and the dummy round we’re not the same diameter. The dummies are thicker.
A fellow member seems to think the dummy rounds are the culprit.
I just haven’t had time to get to the range yet.
If I don’t get any takers on it, I’ll just put it in the safe. I will definitely be taking it to the range ,hopefully this weekend. Will post on how it performs ASAP.

You’re probably right. I’m just not crazy about field stripping it.
This is getting off track for a “For Sale” thread but i’d hate for you to give up unnecessarily. I have a new Kimber and it was difficult to field strip until I put a couple thousand rounds through it and broke it in a little. Also, ditch the full length guide rod ‘cause those things are just a pain in the rear. Failing that, I may buy it just to give it a good home.

I think I see the problem.

Somebody hot glued a tactical pen to the side of your gun. That messes up ejection on all my guns when I do that.

Pens are best left to the literate . . . .

It was a nice touch, though.......left there as a reminder of which way the bullet comes out........



It is tactical, though. Good pen.
