After shooting thousands of rounds through polymer pistols, I purchased myself a good o Springfield Loaded. So far I placed 50 perfect rounds, and I must say that trigger...my god...that trigger. I was honestly projecting a good learning curve to make some decent shots but that trigger! I think I'm sold on the 1911....

Well your hooked now. Welcome to the world of 1911. Next on your soon to be list of 1911s to get should be a 9mm. I see you have already made your first change on your loaded well I'll just warn you it doesn't stop at just grips. You have started out with a nice one. A loaded was my first 1911 12 years ago and I still have it and the family has grown to 14. Keep it clean, lubed be safe and have fun.

1911's are old junk . Steel sucks , low round count , because its all about round
count these days . Even though I'am hard pressed to find any real need for high
round count for personal defense . Most engagements are over in under 3 mins
with minimal rounds fired . but back to the old 1911 , junk .. lol


Glad to have you on the forum . Glad to hear your enjoying your 1911

After a 1911 everything else is just a gun.

And...Poof another 500 flawless rounds. This 1911 is eating away at my ammo stock. At this rate I'm going to 1. run out of ammo. 2. wear out my dummy rounds. 3. Take too many photos.

Trigger

The feel of the trigger breaking, pointability, reliability, looks, ease of carry. Why look elsewhere?

I don't feel anything fancy with the pistol. I just notice it's heavy and low mag capacity. But, glad you like it. Nothing wrong with trying new things.

Looks like SGAMMO is going to be on your order list every couple of months
unless you reload . Ammo is always in my budget , also another 1911 they
seem to multiply .

Nice choice. My first 1911 was Loaded (parkerized). Since then, I have added 10+ 1911.

Just finished firing another 300 trouble free rounds and broke it in even more. The safety selector clicks with authority and the slide is sooo smooth. I'm almost scared of scratches and dents, however I did buy it as a range toy. So much all those who kept telling me it was going to need a lot of work to run out of the box...

As tough as 1911's are, if you manage to dent it then you have truly done something wrong! That aside, you are doomed to want 1911's forever now. Take a look at the Range Officer Compact or other CCO models from other makes or the Mil-Spec for a no thrills model.
