Over the weekend I made a 1000 mi, round trip by car to see my brother and pick up the 1911. There was also golf involved and TBH was happy to get out of the house (win!).
Today I put 1/2 box of blazer brass and 1/2 box of Win white through it. I ran both brands through both mags. No hiccups.
The weight of the stainless combined with the fresh spring (the guy I got it from said it had less than 50 rounds through it) made the recoil way softer than the last .45 I fired. The low profile G.I. sights were not too bad, after the first mag I was aquiring target about as well as I do with the heavy revolver and light .38 rounds. At this point I couldn't be happier unless the ammo was free!
A note to reloaders and brass collectors, the blazer brass in .45 ACP uses a small pistol primer.
Unless I am mistaken, all other brass cases in .45 ACP are large primer pockets. I aint saying that it's a bad thing, just something I didn't expect.
Now, a question for 1911 shooters. Through the years I have noticed many .45 autos tend to flat spot the mouth of the spent casings. Do you have this experience with your pistol?
