Colt Special Combat Report, pure butter
Now I'm no competition shooter, but my new CSG sure makes me feel like one! Was shooting my 1941 Colt a bit then switched over to the beast.

PMC Brass Ball Ammo

Here's the first warm up round, 5 rounds each.

Center mass at 8 yards
Head shots at 15 yards
Neck shots 25 yards


Let my buddy try it and then it was on to controlled firing.

8 yards, 10 rounds

15 yards, 5 rounds

25 yards, 10 rounds

The thing is, compared to my other 1911's this one makes me feel like I can seriously improve everything. It's got mojo or something. The trigger right out the box is crisp with extremely little creep. It has a beautiful reset.

The end-

Isn't it amazing what a gunsmith fit barrel and a trigger job will do.

SCG's are pretty sweet.

I still say nothing FEELS better in my hand than my Springfield loaded, but this thing a precision instrument.

Was the controlled firing from a bench? Those are nice groups from those distances. Good sights make quite a diff over GI sights.

At my range the only extra control I use is standing whilst snugging my waist to the bench for a little more stability. It also means taking my time with each round, waiting for perfect in between breaths etc.

My warm up I stand as usual without the bench to stabilize and shoot five rounds, 1 round per breath.

I'm trying to work on my 25 yard groups for possibly shooting at the Navy intramurals.

The high outliers are from sloppy breathing, and I feel it right when it goes. I wait to long between breaths and stupidly
begin to inhale too early. Bad habit I've been trying to break all year.

The other strays are pure suck in general and not following the checklist and rushing.

Good shooting! I'd like to have an SCG in my corral...
