Fired a 1911 for the first time today. I recently acquired a Tisas 1911.
I always clean and lube a new gun. While learning how to disassemble and reassemble the gun, I just kept thinking “this is why Glocks are a thing”.
Went to the range today, and that thing is a tax driver just like everyone said it was. My 2nd mag I’m I was hitting a small target at 15 yds out.
Cleaning and living was a lot easier today after having done it yesterday.
I did have 2 malfunctions. The first malfunction was failure to lock back. This only occurred with my Wilson combat mag. My stock Tisas mag had zero issues locking back. Not sure why that is.
I had one failure to feed around round 97. I just chalked that up as needing to break the gun in and possible limp wrist if when tired.
I LOVE this gun. Though I never judged someone for carrying it before, I really see why some people stay loyal to this platform. It won’t replace my Glock for EDC, but it is a darn good gun.
Also: @KillJoy helped me avoid the “Idiot Mark” not that your an idiot if you have one .
