I put together my old tried and true field load, which is a 225 lead TC over enough Unique to keepíem buzzing down range at 820-850 fps, depending on barrel length.
I fired the LW Commander and the new Springer with 4 rounds each from a distance of 25 yards off hand. The goal was to check for proper feeding and also accuracy.
First the LW Commander;
I can certainly live with that, especially from a LW with shorter sight radius.
Now the new Springer;
Now, hereís where I need help. I fired 4 shots. Does the hole on the left look like it may have two bullets thru it?
I mean, I certainly could have missed, but itís hard to imagine a miss the way I was shooting today, but itís possible.
Either way, if I missed, it was certainly my fault and not my loads or the gun.

Don't try to get into my head there's barely enough room for me in there .
It does look slightly oval so I would say two bullets went through it.
When you have to shoot, shoot. Don't talk.

A 9MM MAY expand to .45 but a 45ACP will never shrink to 9MM.
2 rounds through the left hole.
Proof you donít need a thousand dollar 1911 to get an accurate gun. If I werenít a lefty (need ambi safety) Iíd be all over that Springer. Have seen them for $450.
I'd go with others in that it looks like 2 rounds thru the far left hole. But hey, load the Springer again and let her rip!
Shooting through the same hole time and time again only causes the kind of uncertainty and stress that you are experiencing now. I try to avoid this problem by scattering my shots across the target.

Yup, that's a double! That kind of shooting off hand at 25 yards sure makes me envious. I don't think I could have done that several many years ago when my eyes were a lot better and my hands a lot more steady!
