I don't think there's any better way to spend a rainy, cold, crappy Saturday morning than at the range with a couple of friends and some new guns to shoot. Today was the first time I've had a chance to shoot my new Guncrafter stainless Frag and (no surprise) it performed like I expected to perform.
20 rounds, 7 yards, Geco 230gr FMJ
I knew as soon as I loaded the first round in the chamber that this 1911 was unlike any other I had either previously owned or shot. It was smooth as silk. Geco 230gr FMJ is my favorite factory load for testing new 1911's. It's clean. I can get it for relatively 'cheap' (for .45 ACP) locally and it performs consistently good across the board with all my other guns.
Seven yards was pretty effortless but that's where I like to start before moving the target out to 10 yards:
15 rounds, 10 yards. Geco 230gr FMJ
There's always one, ONE damn flyer at 10 yards no matter what I do! LOL This time, there were two and that makes me feel slightly better than only one.
20 rounds, 15 yards, Geco 230gr FMJ
Fifteen yards is the distance where things get a little hinky for me on an indoor range with a brand new gun but, overall, I was impressed. It breezed flawlessly thru 100 rounds of Geco factory ammo.
Not many surprises, other than how effectively the Frag pattern does its job. Once you grab hold of it and start shooting, it don't move. It makes you want to shoot it faster than you should, just because you can.
