thanks for admitting sandbags

very nice out of that ruger.

if they ever show up for sale anytime soon I might pick one up, but I'll be damned if I'm going to be put on a waiting list for a production gun.

Ignore those 2 fliers. The machine gun in the bay next to me threw off my concentration.

8 rounds or so, rested at 15 yards. It may have been farther than that but not closer.

Guest appearance from the little Missus, making some gunsmoke with my Rock Island at about 20 yards. She loves to shoot these things and I wanted somebody else to confirm I had the sights regulated. Load is 5.0 grains of W231 and a Missouri Bullet 200 grain SWC.



She not only loves to shoot 1911's... she shoots them pretty well, too. This was only her second time on this particular .45, which still has GI sights on it.

New RIA 1911 Match .45

Last evening; indoor range; Winchester SXZ, 230 gr.; 16-rounds at 10-yards.

This gun is shooting as right out of the box—nothing more than original cleaning of grease—400 rounds fired before these two mags—first two of the evening. Whuta gun!

First post. Here's my contribution. I've been away from shooting for about a 10 year break. Corker, you have no worries, my friend. In the fast paced race to the bottom of the heap, I've lapped you at least twice. ;-) I only wish I was shooting as well as you.

Here's my Witness full size in a head-to-head against my Rock Island CS. 14 rounds a pieces in the double-tap targets, and 20 each in the other 2 (not that you'd know it):

At 20 feet, the Rock impressed me. I actually thought I'd do better with the Witness, but the little 1911 is a champ.


At 50 feet, the tables turned. I could barely hit the paper with the RIA.


Double-taps at 20 feet were pretty strongly in favor of the Rock.

Purchased a 1911 built on a Les Baer frame this weekend at a gun show and this is my best effort from this morning. I think the gun is a Concept VI and it's an older model from Hillsdale, Il. Target shot off hand from 50 feet. 200 grain LSWC with 4.2 grains of Clays. Sorry for the poor quality camera phone photo.[IMG][/IMG]

This thread motivated me to go to the range again with my new TRS, I needed to confirm one more time the rear sight was centered before hitting it with a little loctite anyway. All shots were at 25yrds but I was resting on my range bag. Felt it was close enough and have the loctite drying now, I don't think I could get it any closer. You guys have some impressive groups, I need to practice more!

Nice shooting..........I hope to own a real Les Baer someday and not just a "Franken-Baer":.

Thanks Oldnovice, your Franken-Baer looks like it shoots pretty good though... It's actually my second Thunder Ranch, I was an idiot and sold my first one quite a few years back. What are those grips on yours? I have a set coming from Larry Davidson that are ivory micarta, with a softened double diamond pattern.

The grips are just plastic or some kind of composite ivory color with no markings that I can find. I'll probably put a pair of double diamond wood grips on it although after scrubbing these with soap they cleaned up nice. Who ever built this gun did a nice job of fitting slide and barrel, really tight. 3 1/2 to 4 lb trigger pull with no creep.

Here's my inaugural 1911Forum post. Picked up a NIB SA Loaded/parked govt. model 1911 at a gun show here in VA a few weeks ago, and this is the best I've done with it yet. Have about 150 rounds downrange so far.

This is about 25 rounds of Federal Champion 230grn. FMJ shot while standing, isosceles stance at about 10 yards against an 8.5"x11" "Shoot-n-see" style target. Nothing like some of you other folks on here, but it's certainly improvement for a (relative) novice like me...practice certainly makes, well, better

I posted this picture, and range report this past weekend. I bought a nearly new (but used), Springfield Armory Milspec 1911a1 45 acp. The first 5 shots I took with it plunked them into the top of the 10 ring of a 50 foot conventional bullseye target (hung at 50 feet indoors/ ~ 17 yards) with the stock open sights. Two handed grip, forearms rested on the bench, no muzzle support, 200 grain SAECO #69 flat base home cast SWC sized .452" over 4.0 grains Bullseye.

5 shots in about 0.75" c-t-c. That's a US quarter on the right side of the target for reference.

I'm having the pistol converted to a wadgun for 2700 bullseye competition.

My pistolsmith was very impressed with the way this pistol was put together. He said the frame/slide fit was excellent, and wouldn't need much work. He suspects it was lap fit, as there was essentially zero up/down, or lateral movement to the frame/slide.

I was happy with the intial range session. Can't wait for the final product.

50 rounds @ 10 yards off-hand with my Dan Wesson VBob using Federal American Eagle 230gr FMJ. I am no expert marksman, so I was extremely happy with this result!!

Oldnovice and I are shooting at the same target; he just shoots it a little better than I do, LOL. Best of four groups last Sunday, 25 yards bullseye stance, Rock Island GI. Load is 5.0 of W231 and a MO Bullet 200 LSWC.

I'm a self-defense shooter that usually practices full "move-draw-shoot" moves outdoors. At the range, I'll test my consistency by shooting a set of fifty rounds at ten yards without a flyer.



Shot with a 1911 in .45 ACP
