    Well done, QK. It's good for all of us to review procedures for our weapons periodically. I'd hope that others who have similar links for their weapons-of-choice would post them, as well.

    If we eventually fix up a reference section this is one of many things we could have available.

    I am sure for those new to the platform this could be regarded as vital info.

    It's not a sticky yet, so it's worth a bump to the top.

    Question

    Great post! I am new to 1911s and I recently purchased a Para SSP. I performed all of the test and everything was fine until the functioning test. I can't rack the slide with the trigger pressed! Is this a malfunction with the gun?

    I'm a new member, but I have been shooting 1911's of various types since the 1970's. This is the first time I have ever seen all this information in one place.

    Thanks.

    was good to commit to memory, even though I carry the XD45 my 1911 is a very close backup.

    Great reminder, we all get lax from time to time. Thanks!

    Would you recommend this function check before every firing session? Or perhaps, after so many rounds? Would it hurt the gun to perform these tests TOO much? Just curious!

    Won't hurt. This is just great preflight stuff for all us 1911 pilots out there.

    I do this check after every time cleaning. Other than that, I don't bother. As long as I checked it after disassembling it seemed to work fine, and if I took it to the range and it fired well, then we know it works!

    Hey, QKShooter, just a note to let you know that you are right on with your 1911 safety checks. I am a former Firearms Instructor myself and just yesterday was in the process of pondering the purchase of one of the new Taurus 1911s, and applied all my usual safety checks, just exactly as you decribed. As an aside, my wife and I are just this month retiring and I thought to obtain one really good pistol to keep for carry, and I really liked the looks and features of the Taurus. Until I performed my standard safety drill, that is. All went well until I performed the thumb safety check. Thumb safety on and pull trigger: OK. Release trigger, then release thumb safety: Hammer fell to half-cock! This was on a brand-new in the box store model. Well, long story short, just like you, a brand-new SIG P220 Carry model now resides in my CCW holster. A lot more money, but a lot more confidence. Thanks for listening and God bless you and yours.
