No question its a 1911 and a smokin' one at that. I was asking b/c I am looking for a stainless Gold Cup but its getting very hard to find in my neck of the wooks.
I'm giving your model and the special combat Government model a hard look if a GC doesn't turn up on a shelf or warehouse soon.
First trip to the range I ran through a couple 50pk boxes of Remington FMJ, this is pretty much my first time shooting a pistol (or owning one!) so I was more thrilled just shooting the target than shooting for accuracy for the first few shots, after a bit of focusing and getting a feel for the gun I punching holes mostly in the center from i'm estimating about 25yds (no distance markings, didn't realize this is pretty far). Had one round miss-feed.
The second range I went to had yard markings, so I was shooting from about 15 or so. A friend donated a 100rd box of winchester FMJs (WWB?) that looked like they had been sitting for a while, had some discoloration on the brass. Every so often the slide would catch open and leave one round in the mag (not jammed). Probably happened about every other magazine I loaded. I didn't have any other ammo with me so this old stuff might have been the culprit, I found a thread that covers this issue so i'm reading that too.
I found out the hard way that I should check the fit on different mags before buying them, picked up a wilson 7rd mag that appears to be shorter than the colt mags I have already. That mag wouldn't feed at all!
