    Lightly used Springfield 1911 - A1 in 9mm

    I picked this one up at a very good price, and just got done doing a detail strip and cleaning. I installed a C&S light pull sear spring, and one of those slip-on Wilson magwells.

    I plan on shooting both it and the Wilson Professional at next Tuesday’s IDPA practice.

    The trigger pull averaged right at 3 pounds even, and it shot very well at IDPA practice today, with recoil about the same as shooting a .22.

    I was able to point it at the targets COM, pull the trigger as fast as possible, and keep all the shots “zero down.”. This thing may just turn out to be my new IDPA gun!

    Glad that it's working out Rick, I had already stoned the hammer hook and sear so that shouldn't need any additional work, sorry I didn't keep the sear spring but it looks like you resolved that just fine.

    It feels like you did a fine job too, Carson!
