So, last night I stopped by our shop when they were about to close and there was a new SIS Pro. I had them hold it and grabbed it when they opened today.
My carry gun is a CDP Pro, but always wished for the steel frame. Last week I bought a Custom II and posted a report the other day.. I can say this gun is amazing! I was not sure about the SIS cut in the slide, but everything else is perfect.
So, here's my take. This gun shoots soft, not much, but noticeably softer than my CDP Pro and about the same as my Custom II. From the first round out of this gun, it was perfect. Not a single problem. Not one premature lock, FTF, FTE or anything else.
I put 50 rounds of 185 grain Gold Dots since I had them and wanted to get rid of them. 50 rounds of HST+P and 50 rounds of Ranger t-series (not SXT's) I really like the t-series, but carry the HST's. So far have been the best..
Before those 150, I put 150 rounds of Independence 230 grain FMJ that they threw in. They also threw in another Wilson 47D, so now I have 14 of those and 3 EMT mags. It came with a Kimber Tac-Mag which is pretty nice. I bought one of those before and like them much better than the 7 round Kimber mags.
So, not much more to say other than 300 flawless rounds so far. Shoots very soft and feels great! With the memory bump grip safety and what appears to be a slightly shorter trigger (didn't measure, but looks and feels shorter) it feels amazing in my hand..
Here's a pic of the gun and the first target. 50 rounds of Gold Dot and 20 of FMJ's. There was one fly-away due to me. It hit low left, so I threw another 8 rounds at it rapid fire to make a little group from 10 yards. The shots at the top were from 7 yards.
Not world class shooting, but not too bad for a new gun at 7 to 10 yards two and one handed shooting, single shots, double-taps, triple-taps and full magazines at aimed rapid fire..
This will be my main carry gun after another range trip with another 300 to 500 rounds - at least until my Wilson comes in!
For you guys into photography, I apologize that these aren't my best shots, but done in a hurry.. Shot with a Nikon D3 and a Nikon 24-70 2.8 at ISO 800 and 1,600 at f/2.8..
I'd love to hear thoughts on this gun (besides the SIS in the slide!) from guys that own it or have shot it..
Thanks for looking! I'll be throwing some new grips on it in the next week or two...
P.S. I posted this at 1911forum too, just in case anyone sees it there too...
