350 rds thru my Commander

I bought a Ruger 1911 commander .45 acp , a couple of weeks ago and just want to say Im loving it. Ive put around 350 rds thru it since the and the only 2 complaints are that the handles are slightly loose after a 100 rds, but I can fix that. I also got hit on the face and forehead by ejected casings, it throws them out pretty hard, but the more I shoot it, the less I get hit, only got hit once this evening out of 100rds .I used the 100 round pack of Federal ammo from Walmart with no issues what so ever. Ive read about people having issues shooting hollow points, I shot 100 rounds of Remmington jacketed hollow points with no problems at all. I think this one is a keeper. I also have a SR 9 that is a keeper too.

They are nice. I have had mine since Jan of 2013 and am still enjoying it. It does not wack me in the head unless it is a bank shot off a partition at an indoor range.

Congrats! I love hearing news like this, I am planning on getting one myself very soon but I might go with the light commander, I'm still undecided but I am going to get one. I want to just wait for a few more weeks, my birthday is the 8th of next month and I'm hoping to catch a little sale on them out on base that is near me.

I was at the range/gun store yesterday trying out my Shield 9mm and seen that they was selling for $729.00, so I ask the guy in the back on how much will it cost out the door, he told my about a little over $800.00. Yeah taxes up in Washington State in some places is 9.5% so I can get it for $730.00 out the door on base, because I'm retired military.

I guess that I will be going out on base to buy my Commander.

I've had several commander type 1911's from different makers. In my limited experience, the shorter length 1911's are prone to ejecting up and straight back with your eyes, forehead and shirt pockets being likely targets. Someone may be able to tune it for you, but I've found it is just the nature of the thing. It will certainly remind you to wear safety glasses and to keep your pockets buttoned!

If it's throwing brass at your head then the extractor and ejector are not working together. The front of the ejection port is whacking the case before the ejector has kicked it out the port. A slightly longer ejector will start it out sooner. A too heavy recoil spring can cause this also.
