    I have been an active shooter my whole adult life. Started shooting CMP in my early 20's. Back in 2009 I decided to become a better pistol shooter. I joined a new club that has a very active pistol program. In 2015 I discovered USPSA and like the sport very much. I am an NRA certified pistol instructor and with other instructors teach the NRA classes at my local shooting club

  1. Update. Rifle had some issues with longer ammo. Anything longer than 1.10 would not feed fully into the chamber due to the short throat. MemphisMechanic was kind enough to ream the throat of the barrel. I have tried ammo with 1.125 ol and it feeds great.
  2. VZ Stipple grips are very aggressive. https://vzgrips.com/products/1911-vz-stipple-full-size-grips.html
  3. This. Its the Gunsmith that will make it a high grip. I like the EGW JEM style. Its a little wider than the Ed brown at the rear of the tail.
  4. Do this and while you are at it install an Apex RAM to give you a better reset feel. Brownells
  5. I did this and polished the other bearing surfaces. Really makes the trigger very nice.
  6. I'm using the Bayou 124 gr. I had them at 1.145. Too long for my chamber. I backed them down to 1.125 and it seems to have solved the issue
  7. Contact Jim Milks of Innovative Custom Guns in PA. He is a great gunsmith. He does all my 1911 work. Here are four he did. http://www.innovativecustomguns.com
  8. It is a tack driver!.. Though when I got it back from Innovative it was on the tight side. Couldn't use my reloads because it wouldn't cycle. After about 100 rounds of ball through it will now cycle my reloads. Can't even shoot it now:( All the Ranges in PA are closed due to the Corona virus..
  9. Had innovative Custom do some additional work to my Ed Brown 9mm 1911. Replaced the grip safety & safety with EGW parts and had a EGW mag well added to the pistol. The first time I took the pistol out to shoot the slide wedged back. There was a piece of metal stuck between the slide and frame. It scored the frame pretty good. I've never have seen this happen in any pistol. So it went back to Innovative Custom. Jim Milkes welded the frame rails an recut them the I had the pistol Ionbonded. Got it back and have maybe 300 rounds through. Absolutely love how soft a 9mm 1911 shoots.
  10. What Overall length did you decide on for the 115's and 124's?
  11. Les, I will report back when I get to 1000 rounds.
  12. I am using a standard buffer. I picked up a older Taccom PCC buffer. I' going to see how this feels
  13. I just finished testing a 9mm carbine I built using a 16" CMMG RDB 9mm kit. All I can say is I really like this setup. It shoots really softly and recovery is quick. So far only put 100 rounds through this rifle with no issues Specs: LWRC old style rail with adaptor Saber Defense upper receiver with no M4 ramps Trijicon MRO Radian Raptor charging handle LWRC New style lower with Geissele SSA-E trigger.
  14. Agree. If it is not ramped the bolt would hit lower on the hammer and will cause additional stress on the pins and the holes in the receiver
  15. With the volume of Walther posts this makes sense.
