IDPA 1911's

I am thinking about shooting IDPA and would like to see some pics of the 1911's you guys use.

I shoot my duty gun, a S&W 1911 9mm Pro Series, and a Springfield Loaded. The S&W is completely stock, the Springfield was gutted by the factory and the barrel, bushing, and trigger group were replaced with national match parts, everything was hand fitted and the action tuned. Both guns are great shooters, very accurate, and run 100%. I use my duty gear, a Safariland 6377 and a Blade-tech double mag pouch, just switch guns and mags.

Is that the same gun?

The bottom picture looks like the grip safety has been cut flush with the frame tang a la Bob Loveless.

Yeah, I swapped the flush grip safety for a M1911 model.

Left is my Single Stack gun which is a Springfield Armory 1911A1 with S&A magfunnel, S&A grip safety, King's ambi thumb safety, custom EGW monogram bushing, Brown extended mag release, opened/scalloped port, Novak sights, spalted maple grips.

Right is my CDP gun which is about the same except it's about 25 years older, blued, has a Wilson extended slide release, spalted tamarind grips and MMC tritium sights.

The middle gun is a Fusion lower and a .22 Marvel upper with S&A grip safety and magfunnel, King's thumb safety, extended mag release and spalted maple grips.

All the wood grips are from Sarge.

Doesn't checkmate also make the famous Colt hybrid magazines? I need to order a couple mags for IDPA, these seem to fit the bill. I am currently using WC 47Ds and Chip power mags for IDPA. Do you have range report on these?

When I run a 1911 in IDPA I just use my 7 round mags. Single stck and IDPA is a losing proposition from the get-go.

Why do you say that?

You're not competing against guns with 10rd mags, unless you're running in ESP, but CDP you're only allowed 8rd mags.

What's the problem?

Check your PMs.

Agreed. I don't see the problem either. There is no single stack division in IDPA.

Is there a chart any place with the weight of the different mags? I am going to be using a TRP which I will have to get under weight, I was going to try Check-Mate mags. It seems though the Wilson ETMs are the lightest. I guess I should order one or so of a few kinds before I order 6 or so of one kind to make sure the gun likes them.

here's mine,



Kimber TLE/RLII, changed sights to TruGlo tritium (G/Y), dropped the FLGR for GI Guide Rod, TechWell XT magwell + alumagrips. Chip Mccormick PowerMag+ magazines.

Fits into the IDPA box perfectly.

Yeah, I don't think I'd use light weight as the determining factor in choosing magazines.

I agree. CDP is .45 only and limited to 8+1 rds to start and 8 rds in each magazine. I usually use a Kimber Pro because it's what I carry but may switch to a government for this year. In ESP I also use a Kimber Pro but in 9mm with 10 rd Wilson mags. Have a great time doing it, meet a lot of good people, even brought home a trophy last year. 1911s tend to dominate CDP and I've seen a lot of 9mm 1911s in ESP.

Here's the one I sometimes use. I mostly shoot my M&P9 now, but this below was my first IDPA blaster



Wilson Combat ambi safety, Wilson combat hammer and beavertail safety, Wilson Combat trigger, Ed Brown integrated magwell/mainspring housing, and Tripps Research 8 rd mags. I wish I could change the sights, but I don't want to go to the trouble.

Shot my first IDPA match this morning using my 9mm STI Trojan (ESP class). With the limit on 10 rounds in the magazine, I see no reason to compete in IDPA with any of my high capacity guns (e.g. Glock 34, Beretta 92FS, H&K P30L, etc.). Next match, I may try CDP class with my Kimber Gold Match II (after I match my STI configuration with a fiber optic sight and magwell).

I'm FAR from a big IDPA shooter...two matches under my belt.

But the Wilson CQB has been accurate and functioned flawlessly.

Surely an interesting game that can teach some real world skills.
