Congrats! One of our local dealers carry Christensen Arms, and they are very nicely finished 1911s. Everyone that have had a chance to shoot the CAs say that they are very accurate too!

It is a very good powder as long as your powder-drop dispenses the 700-X uniformly each pull of the handle. Some do and some do not. That being said, I really like 700-x for the 230 gr FMJ bullet....

Nope...can't do that. I love my Dan Wesson PM9 and STI 4.15 Tactical. If you want a 1911 in 9mm, then do not let anyone talk you out of this potential purchase. I have 1911s in 9mm, 38 Super Auto,...

Bsteiner27, my bad: WST is not good for the 9mm. I was just thinking about 45 ACP. Noylj, thanks for pointing out my mistake. 57K's suggestions would be great though.

I really like Power Pistol, and I have looked at BE-86--but I do not mind PP's flash. As soon as I find some True Blue and Silhouette, I an going to by some.

According to Stephen A. Camp, you should stick to the factory 13 round magazines. For what its worth, I sure do miss Mr. Camp's insight on Hi Powers and other handguns.

Vanslam, I have found 1.250 C.O.L. worked fine for me using the same Rainier 230 grain bullet over 6.0 grains of CFE Pistol. A very good range load indeed.
