wlynn5,

I remember seeing posts about the NCG gas gun in this forum earlier. I think someone posted experiences with theirs here...

Just run a search for NCG to read about them.

Definitely not new news here...;)

For $425 a barrel, I'd have to pass.

This is an attempt to emulate the gas-retarded blowback action of the H&K P7 series. Of dubious value in a 1911-pattern gun, but works fine in the compact 9mm P7. Definitely NOT a new idea after the latter '70s.

for $425 I would purchanse a East German Makarov, and maybe a couple of other used guns.

No way am I going to purchase a $425 accessory..

The 1911 works good enough, if I want some hydroliccs in a gun, I'd get the P7.

Q:Why do the gun mags LOVE this product when they review it?

A: advertising money.

Or maybe it was because the product worked just like the company said it would.

The conspiracy does not run as deep as some may think.

Give them some time to work some of the bugs out.

I'd give it a try.

Like to see a try before you buy program at some of the shows. Without seeing/experiencing first hand that there would be no degradation in accuracy and considerable reduction in muzzle flip and most importantly no reduction in weapon reliability, I would have a hard time spending $425.

actually according to the two memebers on this board (maybe it was only one...not sure) but the gun never functioned as intentioned...and the company couldnt make it work. So they blamed it on mags/ammo...

They have been working out the bugs, or trying to, for about seven years. At least it has been that long since I first saw a magazine article about the NCG's wonders.

They LOOKED real nice at the SHOT Show and had a smooth line of patter. I was getting real close to buying one until Oliver started his odessey. I got smart and saved my money and blood pressure. Unfortunately, his was an oddball; long slide heavily loaded for bowling pins. It would be interesting to try one or to read an objective report on one in standard format. What I wanted was a 9mm, if as advertised it would have been a pussycat for IDPA ESP. But I didn't want to do a beta test for them.

I know that people who had NCG gas guns made for them posted on this forum that the guns didn't actually WORK, at least not without multiple trips back to the manufacturer. Oliver's saga alone ought to give anybody considering one pause...

It took almost exactly 6 months after the gun was first delivered for NCG to make the gun actually work. Not impressed. :rolleyes:

I would, for something I felt filled a definite need -- like the Marvel Unit 1 (though that's only $355) that I want. For something silly like this, I'm with you.

BTW, Marvel is running a Veteran's Day special. Veterans can buy a Unit 2 for $225 between 10 Nov and 22 Nov. (I have no financial interest in Marvel, just passing along what I saw on their site.)

Actually, one member on this board's LATEST post say's that the problems have been worked out. The first line in the following linked post say's......... "Looks like it's finally fixed! "

http://www.1911forum.com/forums/showthread.php?s=&threadid=49833&highlight=ncg

It's a brand new product, and Oliver's 1911 has a 6" slide, there will be some bugs to work out.

Imagine if everybody thought the same way when Orville and Wilbur were running up and down that dune at Kitty Hawk. We'd still be riding bicycles up and down the street.

Give the guy's some time. After reading every single post on the matter, it seems to me that they are at least trying to make it right.

JMHO
YMMV

i saw it wasnt working...and it isnt for me anyway so i stopped checking up on it after reading 5 new posts that it still doesnt work. IMO once you do that, you no longer have a 1911. You can add all the extra safeties, all the exernal extractors and target sights you want, but as long as it functions like a 1911 then it still is...this on the other hand is pushing it...maybe if i had a cheap frame and slide i would do this, but i donno...

Except that this thing is more like a different kind of bicycle, that doesn't work well and doesn't really do anything that any other bicycle doesn't do for less money.

Sure, they fixed it... SIX MONTHS LATER! Not impressed... with the hardware or with the customer service.
