It's Always the Indian not the Arrow!

An old saying but I will postulate this: If you have a really good arrow that helps! 


So on Saturday last I wander up to Mr. and Mrs. Curmudgeon's house at the northern command center to test the new Colt. We get to it posthaste. 







































 


So after getting to know each other Mr. Curmudgeon and I were stunned! NO perceptible take up on the trigger. I'm not all of that with a handgun, but the trigger I could not feel as it engaged the sear. If you put your booger hook on the boom switch this thing was going to go boom! 

The Novak style Trijicon sights were dead on and it functioned flawlessly. We did not disassemble from the factory prior to firing. The new Wilson Combat magazines were oh, how shall we put this, REALLY, REALLY stiff! We could only get 5 or 6 rounds in them. We went back to a Wolff mag for the rest of our session. 

After getting comfortable at 5 and 7 yards we pushed it out to 12 to 15. Here is what both of us did:








 





















I'll take that all day long! 


The Colt is sweetness and light! 

So we get done and wash up in the restroom. There seems to be a malfunction there. Above the sink here is this:










     


LOL! The caption reads "Image is important. Unfortunately our mirror is broken". 


Sadly, the Colt seems to be defective. 







 





















For this kind of cash I thought it was self cleaning!

  3. If they cleaned themselves, drill sergeants everywhere would demand (or invent) one that wouldn't. AND hate you forever. :)

  6. If they cleaned themselves they'd never be sitting on the floor by the sofa downstairs...

  7. If they cleaned themselves, I'd have nothing to feel guilty about each time I walk into my gun room.

  8. Very nice firearm indeed. Great range report. Hopefully the coating will make it an easier cleaning job than a typical 1911.

    1. Thanks Aaron, not nearly as detailed as your report on the M&P! Me I just sorta grip it and rip it.

  10. That's a lesson that was driven deep yesterday Kelly. I sucked but it definitely was not the gun's fault!
