[QUOTE=EvilGenius;19476178]How much more accurate though?

We talking 2" vs 5" groups out of a vise at 50yds, or rifle vs shotgun kind of improvement?[/QUOTE

I think the most accurate a 1911 can be at 50 out of a vise is about an inch and still cycle. But a Govt 1911 may make 1 foot at that range.

Speaking of 1911s. My GSG sees a lot of holster work round my land and as a DC every so often and was looking pretty bad. The finish they have is kinda hard and flakes off when used in a plastic holster. I decided since it has an alloy slide to take all the black off. Here's a bad celly pic.

Looks good, I am still enjoying mine...even with some of the newer options I like the GSG 1911 the best.

Have you seen this.....I almost bought one on a whim a few weeks ago.....it looked just soo cool.

A 22 STG44....what in the world do I need this thing for....why do I want one....must resist...it is from GSG so I am thinking the quality should be on par with their 1911.

How much are they? I am in the need for a .22 carbine for fun and was looking at the ARs.

Anyone here have a full size SA 1911 in 9MM and use a Kimber or other .22 conversion kit on it?

Shooter's guns

[QUOTE=Cumminsman76;19478471]Les Baer says his PremieirII will shoot 3 inch groups at 50 yards. You can pay more and have a 1 1/2 group. I doubt either of those guns will malfunction after break in.

The middle one is a Model 52-1 mid-target and yes it is old and rare. It was the old S&W at its best and this was the most accurate target they ever made. 38 spl FWC. From the factory 1.5" at 50 yrds on sandbag rest. A perfect 2.5lb trigger and it never malfunctions but then it has never been in the dirt. I've shot $4k pistols that are not as good.

The model 29-2 in SA is a 3.5lb trigger. The Model 41 (bottom) is from the factory 1.5lb trigger. There was a time when perfection was everything.

Or even 7.62X39 or something really common.

They'd sell like crazy.

Got the spinner targets all working and improved my welds on the newest one. Shot some video with the LC9 this morning as I tested all the spinners and practiced my accuracy.
