    Most reliable 1911 single stack?

    For a $1200 gun I found the trigger on the SIG Max unacceptable. I like the look, but was really disappointed with the quality. I don’t expect a 2 lb competition trigger on a $1200 off the shelf gun, but the MAX was the worst trigger I’ve felt in that range. I own a few Dan Wessons and they are a good solid gun. They need tuning for competition, but most guns will anyway unless you are buying from a custom shop. The triggers on the Dan Wessons are good for a beginning competition shooter. Experienced shooters will want a trigger job. I also own a more expensive “custom gun “ 1911 from a small manufacturer that my local gun shop was selling at a premium for while (not a big name) that was complete crap internally (mim parts) and failed soon after entering competition. I had to have a gunsmith replace the internals with quality parts to get it running properly. I’m happy I got that gun on a year end fire sale when they couldn’t unload them for $3500+. Luckily for me the rails and fitting are decent. STI also makes a great 1911 setup and is very customizable to fit the needs of a wide variety of shooters.

    CZ TS mag problem

    I use coated bullets from Eggleston Munitions in my TS. I've found the .401 - 180's give me really good accuracy and reliable performance. As for powder, I am using Prima SV which burns clean, is very consistent and is not temperature sensitive. I just came back from a level IV IPSC match in Thailand where we had some very challenging targets at 40 yards and they were accurate enough to make me proud. The accuracy issues I had there were all "on me"... CHA-LEE has a number of posts on Eggleston if you want to do some research. I think he even posted a discount code that's great for testing

    CZ TS mag problem

    Agree with obsessive here - I use flat point in my TS with very few issues. The TS platform can be a little picky about length but I’d ditch the SWC’s first and see if that helps. Also - if you have the buffer pads on the guide rod remove them - they tend to cause short stroking.

    CZ TS mag spring issue

    If you are using the CZC low profile followers, you sometimes have to bend the spring near the top to get them to fit just right. There’s a lot of pressure on the springs especially when new which cause them to “torque” up in the front.

    Replace the original springs?

    non-competition shotgun question

    I've been teaching Scouts how to shoot shotguns for years - Including at 2 jamborees. I've used both 12 and 20 Ga, Low recoil rounds are available for both. Winchester makes an AA ultra light - which is great for new shooters. As for Shotguns, The Semi-Auto guns work the best for both recoil and weight. The spring in the action helps absorb the recoil. The 1100's tend to be too heavy for most young shooters, Benelli makes a great SA in the Montefeltro - a little more expensive but worth it. It is also one of the easiest guns to clean. I've also found shoulder covering recoil pads can sometimes help boost the confidence of new shooters but may be hard to fit smaller frames. BA (Bob Allen) makes one and you used to be able to get them at Walmart for about $20. There used to be an "escort" shotgun available for a reasonable price in 20 GA that was perfect for new shooters of the smaller variety. I have not seen them in a while but if you can find one used its an excellent starter gun.

    Henning Grips

    I'm surprised you didn't get a response - He's normally right on that stuff. I've been working with him on the Tactical Sport Grips - since there are multiple magwell designs (Factory, CZ Custom) there are different grip lengths and we wanted to get them just right. It has taken a couple of months between syncing up the schedules and doing the design. He is thinking about producing his own Magwell and Basepads as well in the future - but there's a bunch of stuff on the list ahead of those at this point. Stay Tuned!

    These are the Nickel - Really hard to capture them on camera.

    They are the Orange grips - sized for the CZ factory magwell. They came from Henning Shop Pre- sized. I did not have to cut them. Here’s one more pic I have easily accessible. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Here’s a pic of my sons TSO with the Henning grips. He also likes the original grips but thought these felt better. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I’ve had the “lemon graters” from CZ - which I think they list as aggressive texture. If I can find them I’ll post a pic side by side with the Henning grips. The texturing on the Henning grips are much smaller, and the palm swell makes them much more comfortable than the flat CZ models. If you see someone with a set try them - they just “feel” good when I grip them. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    The grips are different between the SP01 and Tac Sport. Henning does have grips for the Tac Sport with the factory magwell and the CZ Custom magwell. The grips are different lengths depending on which magwell you have. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Fire 4 Effect CZ TS

    I've had the hinge pin drift on my adjustable CTS - probably closer to 12K rounds through it. I just called CZ Custom and they sent me a new pin - NBD and no issues since.
