I'm hoping to purchase a Mil-Spec too (though I'm still considering a 1991A1 as well). Be sure to let us know how it performs!Today, on my lunch break, I picked up my Mil-Spec---my first 1911 size .45 shooting instrument. What a sweet piece!
Yeah, that would be the ideal decision. Unfortunately, I'm a typical starving college student right now; no money! Well, not a lot anyway. So for now, it's one or the other. And to be honest, I'm leaning towards the Mil-Spec right now. But thanks for the offer.Originally posted by hoser:
Get both the Colt and SA! I did and like them both for different reasons. They have different feels. If you want, I have an extra 1991A1 I'd let go if you want. Let me know!
Yeah, now that you mention it, I should probably do something with the 500 rounds of .45 ACP ball ammo sitting in my closet.Originally posted by GI-45:
OK, we'll be expecting a range report from you too!
Wow, that is really good to know, thanks. I use PMC .30-06 for my M1 Garand, and it loves it. So I was planning to purchase some of their .45 ACP ammo in bulk. Looks like I should try Federal instead. Thanks again.Here is the list of ammo my Mil. Spec. doesn't like.
Speer Lawman 230gr ball.
PMC 230 gr ball.
Thanks for the advice -- sounds like I don't have anything to worry about. I'll make sure I get some good mags before I head out to the range on Thursday, too.Originally posted by gyp_c:
The first 300 rds. through my SA Champ were Speer Lawman 230 HB...No problems at all...Try some S&B as well, it's a good ammo for practice and such...The Speer measures at 1.250 OAL and the S&B measures out at 1.265 OAL...both are close to or right on spec...
ps...the more you shoot ,the better it'll run
