got it back and it still doesnt run right. The only ammo it will run properly is jacketed ball. I told them it needed the throat lengthened and all they did was polish the bottom of the barrel or so they say. Im going to try some .451 bullets in it and seat them deap looks like it may work but in my opinion it ought to run with the same ammo the rest of my 1911s eat like candy! No more spingfields for this guy!!!

might have to try that mikey or just get rid of it. Once a auto fails me i loose faith in it and havent much use for it. It would make a good gun for someone who didnt reload or use cast as factory ball goes through it no problem. Just makes me angry because its a new gun and a guy shouldnt have to buy a new barrel for a new gun.

mikey theres hope for this gun I took it out tonight with lyman 230 round nosed gas checks and the 200 lyman swc sized to .451 and seated a little deaper then i run in my other 1911s but not to deap as to be odd looking and it ran great i shot 300 of each and had only one failure to feed and that may have been a bad load as the brass had a little dent on the mouth that was probably casused by me loading. It shot the 230 into 1 1/4 and the 200 into 2 inches. So the thing may have potential after all. It needs some trigger work as its got about a 5 lb pull. Dont know what to do know i was all set to trade it off for something else but the darn thing had to shoot! I guess ill do the trigger and pound a couple thousand rounds through it and see if it stays reliable and then decide. Once a gun lets me down it takes a good long time to get confidense in it again.

loaded 500 rounds yesterday and blasted them all up today. There were 5 different swcs two different round nose and one wad cutter. I had one stove pipe with the wad cutter but that was it. I was pretty pleased especially when a couple of the loads went into an inch for 7 shots at 25 and even did it a second time for verification. Ive got to say its probably the most consistantly accurate 1911 ive ever owned. NOTHING went over 2 inches. Guess it may have to stay here after all

The bmw has been getting a workout too pal! Getting ready to head out for a ride this morning. The les bauer idea was shelved for now. I would have had to part with my gold cup to do it and i just couldnt do it. Its been the best 1911 ive owned and i hated to sell it and then find out the les bauer wastnt the answer either.

Lloyd, when did you find time to shoot 500 rounds? (must have been a rainy day that kept you off the BMW) Does that mean that you will now be selling that new Les Baer that's coming? Cheap? Ha ha! 44 Man
