1911s

Sup PrepHole.

I just purchased my first 1911; pic related. Besides getting a variety of magazines like the WC ETCs to see which works the best, what should I know?

    Know how to field strip and clean it. Practice. Get a holster if plan on carrying. Really the same shit you should do for any gun OP.

      I've had mine for about five years. It's been reliable, though it can be cumbersome when conceiled carrying. I'm considering the emp for my next pistol.

          I prefer feel over function. Don’t like the way blocks feel when I fire them. I like the way 1911s feel. Now… bear with me here because this ain’t spreadsheet knowledge… but… if I have to pick between two guns, both of which are perfectly capable of doing what I want… why should I not pick the one that feels better when I shoot it.. and even if the other has some advantage the first doesn’t have, the fact that I enjoy firing the first means I’m a whole lot more likely to regularly shoot it… annnd experience with your firearm beats out spreadsheet features….

    OP, I have a Specialist too. You might not need the WC mags. For what its worth, the factory mags on mine are Metalforms and they (as well as the spares I bought) have literally been 100% reliable in my gun. Also, with the feed ramp cut that DW uses, my gun has no problem with hollow points--even ones with wide or steep noses.

    Either way, good choice of 1911. If your experience is like mine, it'll quickly become one of your favorite guns.

      Thanks. That’s is what I’m hoping for. It’s purely a fun/range gun. I already have a Mark 23 suppressed with laser/light that is my favorite pistol. Dead accurate, reliable and so fun and smooth to shoot. I hope it’s up there with that one. Different no doubt. I need a good steel 1911. I have an ‘81 Python that currently fills that gap.

      own one, this was my first 1911 though.
      feels better built than the Colts I held in the store, parts are stiff af, nothing rattles,
      the only issue I had was the slide failing to lock back on an empty mag while shooting, but they swapped the slide stop and now its flawless.
      also, from what i understood the sight cut on the magnum models are either proprietary or interchangeable with kimbers, but it might've changed since.
      its a good bang for your buck.
