Just FYI... A bump up from 4.8grn to 5.2grn in a particular load resulted in almost-flattened primers (soft cup Federal). Definitely not flattened as would be a rifle, but I wouldn't say it was...

I do use a rotary tool for a few things, and the abrasive wheels are nice for slowly forming metal.

I'm not a 1911 gunsmith. Too many out there. However, I'm very familiar with cost of parts and labor vs cost of gun.

There are many folks out there who buy a...

Hello,

Are there any advantages to the two-tone 1911, or is it only a matter of cosmetics?

Thank you. I knew about the safety but not the barrel hood.

Any idea why they did the hood like that?

I'm growing increasingly aware that not all liberals are the same. In fact, it's a very diverse term.

The 1991 won't? Do you have a reference?

I don't doubt you. I just never really considered it. However, now, I'm curious as to why.

Thanks!

I tend to think of the linked, tilting barrel as the primary feature. The single action was around in the basic form used by the 1911 prior to this.

The ergonomics are also very important.

I tried that.

Got tired of running out of boxes.

Found some plastic toolboxes for a buck apiece and started filling 'em up with reloads.

I stopped counting when I started reloading.

I guess I could estimate by the number of pounds of powder I've burned through.

Not that interested, though.

I used to carry a Taurus PT92.

The only ammo it didn't like was Winchester White Box. It often stovepiped like that.

I polished the chamber and had no more problems.

I suspect, however, that...

You can tell plenty about the gun with primers.

Also, low pressure signs are pretty much the same regardless of caliber.

Sir,

It's only to feel the sear slide. I contact a standard three-hole long trigger by the middle of my finger pad. It's a little short but not terrible.

Mostly it's rimfire these days, though, at rimfire distances.
