    Had training today and decided to take the WTS out for a Cruz.....the weather was cool with heavy rain the entire day that made it quite miserable outside. After the first 200 rounds or so figuring out which mags it liked, it was pretty much down hill from there. I ran it pretty hard with a assortment of ammo/mags, and finally settled on my Mcgar mags, and Tripp research. It liked the factory springer mags, but would get the occasional fail to lock the slide back, so I side lined those for most of the day.

    The gun just kept getting smoother and smoother throughout the day. I ran the hell out of it with dirty ammo, dirty mags and just a little over 1k rounds with no cleaning, and it just kept on runnng. I think it’s safe to say at this point I will be side lining my custom carry 9 for a little while and focus on the WTS.

    That's a serious, hard use tool! For the love of JMB, end the torture test and clean that baby!

    haha.....I did take it down and spray it pretty good with some penetrating oil since it was soaked from the rain. This next week is a pretty heavy training schedule so hope to update this with more pics after I get some more rounds/use through it. I will say that I have owned quite a few SACS guns (including a pro operator) , and for some reason this gun is set up/fits me perfect...from the 25 lpi front to the fiber optic sight and warren grip safety...If I was so spec out a full build this would have been it.

Still running great however I am noticing some mags are “sticking” in the gun and are requiring a immediate action drill of stripping them out with the bottom of my support hand when running drills.

    I will definitely keep an eye on this and see if it’s certain mags or something else.

    Aside from that it’s smoothed out nicely and has become my favorite carry gun

    Why do you prefer the railed frame over a regular? I noticed the grip tape on the side - are you resting your thumb on and applying sideways pressure into that area?

    Do you notice a difference in your split times from this?

    For me the railed frame fills my hands better than non rail.. I for some reason shoot the railed 1911 better than a traditional 1911. It has more bulk in the front that gives it a better balance.

    The grip tape is more of a mental thing for me.....I do rest my thumb on that area however I do not apply any side ways pressure. Times are nearly the same with or without.

    Interesting - Talk to me about the balance - are the sights tracking better? Is it easier to feel like you have a better grip on the gun? How large are your hands?

    I only ask because I am in the "XL" hands bucket, and I never owned a railed framed gun. Looking into it though.

    For me a non rail 1911 feels somewhat slimmer than my railed operator. I tend to shoot a non rail to the left, where as my operator has a better “natural point of aim”.....almost like a side by side shotgun comes up to my shoulder and swings better than a over and under, or any other shotgun for that matter.
