Looking good Jim...
I had a stainless version of that model and really loved it. Too bad I had to sell it to pay bills. Someday I'd like to buy it back.Bunch of my friends get together at my range every year to shoot, for a few days.
This year they surprised me with a gift.
I only owned one ,15 yrs ago, and I need some input ,on what the heck accessories, such as better sights, grips, or anything I can do to it.
I want to jazz it up. Suggestions ?
First shot ,with no cleaning or sight adjustments, was dead center bullseye, and next 5 shots were touching, at about 25 yds.
Now ask me if I love this thing.
The Wilson mags will fit the stock gun and there are no better mags for reliability. Go to Dawson or Brownell's to get a sight. The larger fiber-optics are easy to see. My friend Fred just got one put on his Range Officer and loves it. You may want a gunsmith to do the sights though. It's very accurate and will stay that way for a very long time.Thanks guys,
Im not up on 1911s , but I got a feeling, I will be.
It does have the "NM" prefix. I am assuming thats a good thing.
Will the Wilson Combat 8 rnd mags fit right in the stock magwell?
What fiberoptic front sights work best, on the 1911.
Ive used many different brands on other guns.
The black on black is harder to pickup for me, although with them ,It scared me with how accurate it is.
Most of us shoot black rear/front red fiber-optic sights. The Wilson mags are never on sale for a good reason. Some guns don't do as well with the McCormick mags but Wilson have a reputation for working in any 1911.Thanks mgardner,
I found the height is .180 on the original front sight height.
I think I may keep the square ,black rear.
I have changed quite a few sites, but if I have problems, then a gunsmith. I hope I dont have trouble with the pin removal. Fitting the dovetail is a little work sometimes.
Whats your opinion on Mike McCormick mags.
They have good reviews, but I also seen good reviews on Wilson,
Midway has the MM on sale now.
HIVIZ sights are good on some of my guns, so thats what Im looking at.
Yep, thats what I like also, red front, black rear.Most of us shoot black rear/front red fiber-optic sights. The Wilson mags are never on sale for a good reason. Some guns don't do as well with the McCormick mags but Wilson have a reputation for working in any 1911.
