Typical of a Pro.......oil it well and shoot it for 500-600 before cleaning.I just picked up my Professional today and boy, the slide and frame are very, very tight. Is this normal?
I own quite a few 1911s, including a couple of customs by Dave Berryhill and Dave Sams, and I've never seen one this tight before.
Go easy, friend. I wasn't slamming the Professional or Dave Sams....not by a long shot.It's not a Sams pistol. It is what it is.
I know Dave and have spent many days in his shop and have several pistols by him. Other than Bob Marvel, Ed Masaki, Jerry Keefer or Roddy Toyota there aren't really any peers. I thinks it's unfair to compare a pistol built by one of the greatest gunsmiths in our generation to a factory pistol, a really great one, maybe he best, but still a factory pistol.
