Yay 1911~ try swap out the stock magazine asap, the stock springs are notorious for jamming since they lose tension very easily
Mine had huge jamming problems until I got Wilson combat heavy duty magazines, $30 for a peace of mind

Mine:

Nice 1911!

As mentioned previously, get a better spring and you'll notice a nice difference. Mine came stock with a 14 or 16 lbs recoil spring and it would stovepipe once in a while; I went to a 18 lbs spring with a recoil buffer and you can feel the difference (it's a good difference) when firing and no jams.

I myself recently got an Eotech 512 for my Rock River Arms Elite Operator 2 for x-mas. It's sweet!

Doh! I just realized you were referring to the springs in the magazines not the recoil spring.

Can't beat the 1911. I have no experience with the Remington though. I have a Springfield WW2 Mil Spec that stays by the bed and a Sig SP2022 9mm for the Camaro.

ps2ren's pic of her 1911 just reminded me that I should really get off my butt and install the beavertail ambi-safety and the skeletonized hammer on my 1911. The standard hammer and ambi-safety lever bites me everytime I go the range! :(

My glock 21 will be returned to me soon! It was stolen two years ago and then recovered last year when it was used in a crime. They are done using it as evidence and I will have it back shortly.

Edit: My folks have it in their possession now, they say it is surprisingly in great shape, thank god i kept it spotless, cant wait to get it back and clean it and fire it again.

I lost my interest in going to the range after my glock got ganked and I sold my other guns because the glock was my favorite. I feel the rebirth of an old hobby coming on!

I was just glad to land them around the target at 150 yards using iron sights - I need a scope to even be able to see the target much less the bullseye.

I had a six shooter that did that. It would drop a round about a hundred yards out. (SW 38special) turned our it was shaving lead off one side of the bullet. One of the chambers in the cylinder did not perfectly line up with the barrel. It would shave lead as it pasted. Make note of which chamber in the cylinder it is with a felt pen and see if you can repeat it the next time around.
