Apparently they can be very finicky, and take some time and work to "tune" them in. For that kind of money, you'd think they would be "very tuned" from the factory!!!Seems to be common theme especially with some of the high end 1911's know a few people who've had to send them back after first range outting sometimes more then once. Seems like for what you're paying these companies should be doing more QC on their products before shipping them out.

Obviously it had been used a bunch that day and hadn’t been cleaned. I had pointed out I was running standard 115 blazer. The guy then said I should be using higher grain when running a comp on a gun. I have always heard lighter grain with +p loads because the more gas produced allows the comp to work better....Yea...comped guns with lighter rounds require more powder, resulting in more gas which the the compensator uses to reduce their muzzle climb. Just the opposite for us shooting heavy bullets without comps.

Production division or Carry optics are a blast at local club matches and they do not require a 2nd and possibly 3rd mortgage like open division. Local matches are typically Level 1 matches and are somewhat relaxed other than the safety rules. In addition to being lots of fun, there are usually at least a few master class shooters and you can gets tons of great shooting info from them.
