Ahhhh the 1911. Valentines should move to a new day.
I knew there was a reason why I had the urge to buy my wife flowers today.
Now I remember what that reason was.
That is convenient.
Happy 1911 day!
Ruger SR 1911.
Rock Island Armory 1911.
I have a Mechtech ccu that i put on the Rock occasionally.
You think if I tell my wife it’s Happy 1911 day she will buy me one? NO
That is not how it works. You buy HER one. Then you use it.
I agree with @Mosinvirus . Buy her one then tell her your just taking it to the range to “break it in” and “tune it”.
Are you happy with the MechTech overall? Any negatives? I have considered buying a Glock version for a long time, but for some reason I never hit the “buy now” button.
I had problems with cheap 1911 mags hanging up on the bolt and causing an FTE.
Works fine using Wilson combat or Ruger mags.
Mags with a rounded cutout on the follower.
The el cheapo flat followers got hit and munched by the bolt.
45 ACP does gain a little from the carbine but not as much as 9mm.
If I had it to do over, I’d get the 460 Rowland ccu for 1911.
The Ccu is very heavy but a tack driver.
If you run out of bullets you could surely kill zombies with the ccu alone.
It gets dirty quickly being a blowback design.
It is indestructible.
It is made in Montana.
It is expensive compared to a true cabine.
There is .22 lr recoil shooting 45 acp with this ccu.
I am happy I bought it.
But it would not be the system I chose to go to war with.
It is a novelty.
But a novelty in my opinion.
Mechtech CCU on 1911.
The interesting thing about a CCU is you could get it in 45 acp as seen here or 460 Rowland which can also shoot 45 ACP.
Though they recommend more frequent cleaning.
I didn’t own a Glock at the time but had 2 1911’s, so i got a ccu for the 1911.
I think the advantage is; getting a crisp 1911 single action trigger on a carbine.
The bull barrel of the ccu is a tack driver.
It is an accessory to your 1911, not a firearm.
So it ships through the mail.
I just slid it together, not even bothering to slide the pin in it.
Took me less than 30 seconds to go from 1911 pistol to 1911 carbine.
Oh that’s some cool shit there.
Wow @Matt, now THAT is badass. Are they still made?
Oh they most certainly are. Check this out. Might have to get one for the Glock 20!
