Re: More on the RIA 1911’s
I made a similar post to the “Different 1911s” thread 3/3/10. As the RIA type 1911’s have come up I thought I’d re-post part of it.
This is my RIA 1911A1 CS.
Was out to the range that morning, 3/3/10.
This 5-shot group – 4 of which in about 1 ½ inches with a 5th flyer low and to the left (can just hear Carly Simon in the background, “Anticipation”).
Consider that this is from a 3 ½” bull barrel, from the bench, at 50 feet (see the Aside below), with a temperature in the high 30’s, chilling north wind – cross range (yuck!).
An Aside: “Fifty feet?” you exclaim, adding, “Whatsa matta with ya? Why not the routine 25 yards?” To which I reply, “At 73 I figure I’m entitled to a little handicapping.”
