Got mine today, Took it down to clean off the grease and oil, only to find there was none. Dry as a bone. Very surprised. Sure made cleaning easy tho. Got it nice and oiled up and it feels great. I cycled a mag full thru it and I think a heavier recoil spring may be in order. Anyone know whats in it from the factory? Feels light. Can't wait to shoot it. Got a set of wood grips on the way too.

Took it out this afternoon, shot 6 mags full, Winchester white box 124 fmj. No issues, shot great, hit point of aim. I still think it would benefit with a bit stronger recoil spring, but if it ain't broke....

What's not to like about a 1911? I'd leave well enough alone unless you just like to tinker, and that's cool :)

14# I think. Put a 16# in mine. Brass doesn't go 4 stalls down from me anymore.

That's a good lookin' gun. Still waiting for them to chop 1/2" off the bottom of the grip of one of those cambered in 45 ACP.

With the factory recoil spring, mine has blown through over 1000 rounds without one failure of any kind. I've shot hot home defense stuff and weak reloads ..... it cycles every round the same; every time. If it ain't broke .....

I took my new one to the range last week. 100% reliability was the result. :)

Put in a Wilson 16lb spring, no issues. Makes it feel like there is something in your hand now that's reliable. That factory light spring always made it feel like it might work, might not. Always did work, but now it just feels better.
