    Been a little while...

    since I posted on here. I FINALLY got my Springfield Loaded 1911. I love it! It came with a set of Hogue grips which feel great, but I didn't like the way they looked. I tried shooting it with the cross cannon grips, which I really like the way they look, but I shot better with the Hogues. I was at my loack shop and they had just taken in a stainless MILSPEC in on trade that had a set finger grooves that fit under the original cross cannon grips. I asked about their avaiability and was told they had originally had two sets, but were out. I asked if they would sell me the one on the MILSPEC and they agreed. I got them for two bucks! They are made by Pearce and are great! Here's a pic.

    Wow nice pistol! I wouldn't mind getting hold of one those myself.

    Have you taken it to the range yet?

    Regards

    Thanks for the kind words. I've put about 300rds through it. Seems to really like 230gr FMJs over 5.4gr of W231. I've been working on a load with some Hornady swaged 230 RNs that I bought by mistake. Both 4.8gr and 5.0gr of W231 seem to shoot pretty well. I have been running a 100 rds through it and then switching to my S&W 22a or Tokarev to extend the range session.
