Ccccccc what? Ccccccccccc Hawks!
So how's that new Colt working out?
I'm done with my first 500 rounds, with fifty being Federal HST Hollowpoints. I'm about to embark on 200 rounds of Remington Golden Saber, as that will be my new carry load. If that works without a "bobble" I'm GTG. I finally cleaned my new gun after shooting three hundred rounds. I shot 150 and then 50, cleaned, 300 without cleaning. No bobbles or malfunctions noted. I did have one failure to lock the slide back after the last round, but attribute that to a known problem magazine.
Colt got this one right, if I do say so.
