Let's see your new gun!

That Canik looks nice. It would be hard for them to have made a more useless website. Can someone decode their model naming scheme?

I haven’t been to their website, I suppose you need a native Turk to tell you how to navigate

My dad bought me that exact same Remington for Christmas when I was 13 years old. It said the it had a nylon stock guaranteed not to chip, crack or warp for life. I must have put 5000 rounds through it & I don’t believe I ever cleaned it. I joined the Navy out of highschool & damned if I know what ever happened to it. You would load it through the tube & if I remember correctly, it held 13 rounds

Holds 14 rounds, which is more then 10, therefore it is a “assault rife”.

Little something I had put together with some spare parts. I wish I had the ‘smith skills to fit it together myself but I figure it’s more important for it to work correctly and safely than for me to assemble it. The Parkerized finish is new to me but I’m diggin’ it so far. Old school cool…like me. :sunglasses:

@Lu-Can
Thank you both for the kind words and thank you all for the thumbs up. I carried another 1911 for years and could not have been happier. I haven’t shot this one much but it seems to run just fine. The double-stack configuration will take some getting used to. 14+1, 230 grain, Hydra-Shok, .45s do add some weight. A shoulder holster may be in order for this one however I doubt I will carry it much. My wife (all 5 feet of her sweet little self) says she likes this one and wants it…because it sparkles. :roll_eyes: LOL!

Reminds me of my Rock Island 45 cal gun that I have, it is an awesome gun! I am waiting for my home to be done building around Nov 22 so I can have normalcy to get back into shooting and reloading rifle and handgun calibers that I love to do!

The IWI Masada has the trigger and price of a Canik and the weight of a Glock! My first impressions are great! Can’t get it to the range fast enough. See how it runs!!

First 200 rounds through with no failures! Felt good in the hands! She’s a keeper! In fact, that’s her new name, The Keeper

Very nice pistol, sir. Although not familiar with the IWI line of weapons, I have heard they are top-shelf across the board. Very nice :+1:t2:

I’d put IWI in the great value category. You can pay a lot more and get better but with the Masada and really all IWI products, I think you’re getting everything you need. Great fitment, versatility, and reliability. I saved $150 and got a better trigger then the Glock had that I was looking at. Now I’ll have to wait and see if our passes the test of time.

You won’t find single issue… :upside_down_face:
I was thinking about this handgun last year (it lost rivalry with M&P :wink:) and read / watched a lot of reviews. The longest usage review I found was 1 year / 5k rounds - the shooter claimed no issues at all.
But this is what we are expecting from modern handguns. :slightly_smiling_face:

@Jerzy that Springfield I put the USMC grips on got gone. I let a friend talk me out of it, but I kept the grips. They’re on a Kimber now.
The Springfield has stag grips. I still have the cross cannon original grips and some other aftermarket. I’ll try a couple others too.
