CK Hardcore or Thunder for Limited major?

Recommended Posts

I am looking at buying a CK for USPSA Limited major. I do not know of anyone near me that has some to shoot, so I have to go off of what I have shot. I have narrowed my search to a Hardcore or Thunder. So basically do I want the lightened slide? I currently shoot a lot of IDPA using an Ed Brown full size in both 45 CDP and 9mm ESP. I am thinking the hardcore might be a similar balance to my full size 1911's? Any thoughts or suggestions? I am definitely going with their metal grip option, other than that its either the Hardcore with full length dust cover or the Thunder or the 5.5" Thunder.

My buddy had a thunder limited gun it was a awsome gun. He has a thunder shorty open gun now an his son has a cheely. I have hard core open gun an couldn’t be happier. For the money u can’t go wrong with either one. I know a akai or atlas will have little more detail.

I have a hardcore open 9 major and a hardcore limited .40. Both run great. Love the metal grips.

You gotta go with the Thunder, just because the slide lightening looks sexy.  My IDPA gun has the Hardcore slide cuts and they are a tad slick.  The Thunder cuts will give you more grip for unloaded starts and the rare malfunction clearing.
