Now what would make you say that? Tapeworm? Really?

Just because I brought home three in one shot?

Smart move.

I'm not adding to my collection anymore, only replacing.... I have to sell one to get one....
Wish I had your willpower, I cant stand to sell a perfectly good gun I like.

I know. But after I tallied up what I spent on guns last year, I’m on an imposed diet. Plus I like to shoot my guns so I realized that if it’s just sitting there I should sell and get something fun that I’ll shoot more often.

I've just disassembled, cleaned, reassembled....

First Impressions.

Magazine release and safety are stiff... I'm sure those will loosen up with time.
Feels solid and very good in the hands, no rattle and all parts seem to fit very well together
Some parts do seem to look a little thinner such as the barrel and barrel lug.... But I don't have a a huge amount of 1911 experience.
No unusual milling marks, everything looks to be well made and fitted.
Came with nice hard case, regular rear sights, cleaning brush, screwdrivers and Allen wrenches for red dot..

I'll do my best to get to the range tomorrow.... Wife is taking a few days vacation and wants to do backyard spring planting.. So we'll see.

Looks good! Is the rear sight dotted like the front?
