Nice descriptive post
Any 1911 needs break in time
Just shoot it and look for the right wear patterns
Yo don’t want gouged or deep scratches
I ussualy don’t polish feed rams and chambers till about 5 or 600 rounds
Imo the 1911 or the browning high power is the finest pistol ever invented
Live it and it will love you back
I’m always available for questions should you have any

I really think the magazine will fix the 3rd shot issue.
Ive never seen a stepped spring like that in a mag and it may just be coincidence but I think that has something to do with it.
Especially since the Novac 8 rd when through without a hitch.
And that all it took was light palming on the back of the slide to get it to move in to battery.
The remaining rounds went off without a hitch every time, but that 3rd round just hung there.
Still gotta clean it so I will eyeball all the surfaces for anything as well.
I’ll get the WC mags and let you know too.

I really like the gun and how it shoots and face it…
Its a 1911!!

have you taken it apart yet. I was surprised. Insides of it more resembled my ruger P95dc than my Remington r1 1911. At least to my uneducated eyes.

Ahh give him a break.
After all he owns a plastic gun.
I have a model airplane as well made from plastic.

It’s 1911 all the way. All parts are interchangeable as well so I’m told.
Except the barrel and it doesn’t have the barrel bushing.
But I aint no expert either.

That’s my plan! But with reloading. Feel free to chime in here. My next quarterly bonus I’ll likely go ahead and buy the reloader itself since that’s the most expensive part me thinks.

I do plan on learning how to do 80% builds as well.

My point was the ~$300 for it was the largest single expense. :+1:

It is my understanding the spring and barrel are Colt changes for the Officer model.
Due to the barrel length the standard bushing was removed and the captive spring were installed.
This was done somewhere between the series 80 and 90 but that is up for debate when.
Hickok45 has a good vid on the Colt Defender that shows the same setup.
