PT1911 9mm




I recently bought this from Bud's and I am fairly impressed with it. I have about 400 rounds thru it in 2 range trips so far and the only issue so far is the failure to lock back after the last round is fired. I have read elsewhere that this is a recoil spring issue with the 115gr rounds that I have been using for most of the break in period. Other than that no problems and has gone bang every time. All in all I think it is a cheaper alternative to shooting my .45's all of the time. Both of the targets are 10 rounds each from 7 yards.

Yeah, I here ya. Those .45's can get expensive. Maybe if I get a Youtube sight testing firearms somebody will send me some ammo. All in all your .45 lookin' 9mm looks great. I'm really happy your enjoying your pistol. Keep it downrange.

Nice!
I got mine off Bud's a while back. Never had any slide-lockback problems.. 450 rounds so far without any sort of issues whatsoever. All 115gr.
