New Executive Target

Picked up my new Executive Target yesterday and took it to the range this AM. The order was placed about 10 weeks ago. This is less than the 90 days I was quoted.

Very nice gun! Beautiful SS/SS finish. The sights are amazingly distinct. Smooth operation. Easier to rack than the Wilson Combat guns.

I lubed/cleaned it last night and was pleased by the quality of the internal finishing.

The spring is a devil to re-install! Took an hour to get it back together. Had to go find parts that had flown all over the shop when my fingers slipped. It has a 2-piece guide rod.

Talked to an EB tech this AM. He assured me that I would get better at handling the spring and that the spring would become shorter and easier to compress. He said there was no real difference between the normal and the 2-piece guide rods in terms of re-assembly difficulty. Hope he's right.

I'll try to get some pictures up this weekend.

I have a couple of Wilson Combat guns and, now, the Ed Brown. Can't say that I have a favorite. Both firms make a superior product.

First time I tried, the spring flew over all four walls and the ceiling (no kidding) and ended right back on the bench about 2 feet away! Am I ever careful after that!

Regards....

Years ago I was putting a slide back on a 45 and lost control of the plunger. It shot straight up and took out the florescent light above my head. It was raining glass and I had to get away from the area and grab a vacuum...Boy did I get covered with glass!

Always aim the gun in a safe direction, even unloaded!

Good choice on your pistol!
