    Managed just a few shots on a break today. Still don't have anything that shoots better than my M&P Compact 22, but I do like it. Just to see how easily it shot the lowest power ammo I stuck some Aguila Colibri 420fps in it which is primer cap only with hollow case and it shot all 5 of them. I dig it.

    Ok 250 rounds later i have to be careful or I’m going to end up liking this gun way too much. I try not to get attached to “cheap” guns. I’m getting pretty incredible groups with this thing and it goes where I tell it to. The weight is very nice compared to my lightweight Compact, which I like because it’s lightweight......oddly. The 1911 feels more like an old cowboy gun revolver which I’m extremely accurate with compared to newer semi-autos. The feel of it is very good. I think they did an awesome job of capturing the essence of the 1911.

    I'll warn you now. 1911's are very addicting. Below is all my RIA'S.

    It’s conflicting for sure because they shoot so well, but there is the appeal of the designs of the more tactical stuff. If i had to choose I’d take the old “bland” guns that shoot like this one does. You can get this or an old cowboy gun and watch that front sight move a mm at a time. You really zero in and it forces you to pay attention to how you’re holding it because you are so focused on the nose you can see every little movement you make down the sights. These 1911 and cowboy guns force you to focus. They are great.

    Side question. Since this isn’t cerakoted or anything fancy had anyone tried to sand and polish the slide on these?

    Just wipe it down with an oil rag. Sanding will take off the finish.

    Yep. I was thinking of polishing it, but idk if Chipaloy polishes.

    Here’s a great example of how accurate this little plinker is. I said i was getting incredible groups.




    here are 4 shots in a row.

    One trick is black kiwi shoe polish. RIA rep told me that trick. He learned it from a RIA smith.

    Won’t take the finish off, just a polish? I’ve had great results with meguires wheel polish. I’m just not sure if Chipalloy is a metal that will polish well.

    still blown away that a gun that’s $265 retail or $375 ($100 more for this tactical/target version) can shoot a hole the size of a 22 in the same spot consistently. Cheap guns typically aren’t accurate, but i have to give it to them on this one. They did it right. The weight is excellent, the fixed barrel is dead on solid, and it feels like a 1911. I was really hesitant on this one and i still don’t like the plastic mag, but what a great shooter. I’m going to be going head to head with my Ruger Mkiii and M&P 22 Compact this weekend and see which one does best.
