First outing for 1911 STX

Took my brand new STX to the range. Took 100 rounds with me.. Just to get aquainted with the 45 and the 1911... Ended up buying 50 more!

This thing is very very fun to shoot!

Only thing is that it always shot low.... Even when I thought I was really really taking my time.

I am 95% sure it's user interphase error but am going to have a buddy of mine shoot it soon as he really knows what he is doing.

I want to know if it's me off if the sights need adjustment

Also... Here are pics of it's first cleaning

One thing I noticed was some wear on the ramp ( see pics)... Is this normal after only 150 rounds?

Maybe I'm just being Uber crazy about my new baby....

Anyways.. I'm very happy with the purchase... Cannot wait to take this and my 226 out together.. Soon!

I posted a pic of that as well as it's a beauty ( in my eyes! )

Congratulations, I looked at one myself, but lack-o-money got in the way

The "wear" looks normal to me, as if it needs a good solvent to get the rubbing off from the rounds. Copper marks, maybe.

I would suggest that before you adjust the sights, that you fire it from a solid rest.

That stuff on the ramp is transfer from the bullets. Use a good gun solvent and a little more work and it will clean off. KG-12 Big Bore Cleaner is my favorite for cleaning bores and places like that.

Nice gun. The 1911 makes you want to keep shooting it.

Thanks all....

I scrubbed and scrubbed with solvent... Used patches and an old tooth brush... Did not want to go more abrasive than that...

Yes.. It does seem to like to get shot!!!

I had a slight " ooops moment" when I could not remember which way I took the recoil spring off...

It looks like the same on both ends... No true " open" or closed end.

Tried to find a pictures of an open and closed end on the intraweb about could not find one.

Can anyone post a pic do I know what I would be looking at if I saw one...?

Thx

Good suggestion...

I'm going to have a friend shoot out who has several 1911s... He'll be able to figure it out right away..

I suspect it's me.... Just need to verify....

I have had my STX about a month now and with 300 rounds through it this gun is awesome to shoot and is a beauty to behold.

Got to the range with my friend... As expected the sights are fine.... I'm just anticipating too much.. Argh!

He was not fond of the 1911 trigger.... Oh well..

Shot about 50 rounds through each of my 1911 and P 226...

Lost some of my proficiency with the P226... Maybe it's time to get a 22 for some fundamentals training...

Also... Got to try my friends Springfield 1911 ( forget which model but it was sweet!)... And a1942 Colt 1911!

Omg... It's surreal to shoot a piece of history... Not as tight as the new units.. But accurate and just " felt good"..

Until next time... Here is a shot of the 2 guns I own at the moment:
