Colt Competition .45 ACP 1911 2000 Round Challenge: Rounds 1151 – 1250

I took the 1911 out to this week’s Shoot And Scoot and put another 100 rounds of Federal Champion Aluminum .45 ammo through it, and unfortunately, the gun suffered a catastrophic, test-ending parts failure that has completely shattered my faith in the 1911 platform.

Colt and CZThe fiber optic in the front sight fell out.

OH THE HUMANITY!!!!!!!! HOW CAN I EVER SHOOT THIS GUN EVER AGAIN!!!?

/sarcasm.

Other than that soul-crushing event, nothing happened with the gun. It loaded and fed all 100 rounds with no issues.

After that was over, I put 200 or so rounds thru my CZ P07 to get myself re-acquainted with that gun. The last time I shot it was at TacCon, and I want to start carrying again on a regular basis, so some range time was definitely in order.

And it went well. Here’s Stage 2 from the Shoot N Scoot, a simple all-steel stage using 18 rounds.

 

And I shot it 9.64 seconds, with a reload.

I’ll take it.

Bottom line on the test to-date.
