So just picked up a new plinker, thanks to Sportsman's Warehouse. Took it out the the range today to try it out. Grabbed a few different ammos off the bench to try out, armscor, Winchester bulk, bulk federal auto match, and cci standard vel. I realize it was just the first hundred rounds or so but the only ammo that didn't give me any issues was the cci standard. The others all gave me multiple ftf and fte, to the point of frustration. It confused me a bit that there wasn't any issue with the standard velocity but there was with the others. I was really hopeful with the federal auto match I've got a bunch of it. I'll clean it up good again and give them all another try. And bring a couple others to try too.

Well it shot much better today, I ran a 3 or 4 mags of cci mini mags, 1 of velocitors, 3 cci standard, and 3 if the fed auto match. Much happier and it is a fun little gun to shoot.

Looked at those. Sorely tempted but...alas no money. Looks like a nice "grown up" 22. Glad to hear things are improving, but that's a Browning, if it don't work, send it back I would think they would make it right. CL

I’ve been thinking about getting one of those myself.

There are conversion kits for the 1911 available that are reliable and very accurate. One is made by Nelson with a steel slide.
Just remove the slide and replace with the conversion unit and you are good to go.

They are a lot of fun, ended up picking up a second with longer barrel, the wife and daughters really enjoy shooting them.
