Some mixed reviews when I researched it.
One guy said the spring was not as strong as the higher priced one.
But hell, every one worked fine.
Now I want one or two or three for my shorties. :)
Yeah, just to be on the safe side, I only loaded 80 rounds to start. Will work up from there.
LOl. Sorry 4th. It'll be at least the weekend before I can test it. Probably Sunday afternoon. Unfortunately I have to work my @$$ off so that the Obama supporters can sit on theirs and watch Oprah reruns.
there are several differing trains of thought on building firearms and mag's.
one is everything has to be big name big $$ = quality and reliability.
the other is build it as cheap as possible and hope for the best.
solution # 1 gives predictable results and is overly costly.
solution #2 is obviously going to be less expensive yet does not give as good end results.
the best course is build or buy as good a quality as possible and still stay in the realm of known good parts and mags. (and ammo)
if you bottom feed too much you may have more work and headakes and end up spending more to fix the cheap parts, negating savings--
if you over build with name products/parts your going to spend more $$, possibly more than needed if you go too far with the name brand thing.
this is true with the ar-15/m16, the AK series and really-really true for the 1911.
i know a guy that built a 1911 on a sarco kit with an essex frame, after a year and a half of it half running he has just about replaced every part except the frame, and he has recently decided the frame must be off angle in the feed ramp.
now if this guy had been lucky he would have got a good frame and a good slide and parts kit --yet no joy on it.
--i digress--but the moral of the story is get decent quality in spec parts. they don't have to be high $$. they just have to fit and work as designed.
far too often cheap bottom feeder venders sprinkle in a few out of speck parts in with the nearly in spec parts.
if you get too many all most in spec parts along with a few slightly out of spec parts the end result will be all those little bit offs will stack up.
I found that with the 1911 mags...
Damn cheap ones were jamming in my 1911...
I bought "Chip McCormick" mags, I think they are.
Seem too be quality built, their working fine.
Took the other ones, spent a bit smashing them with a hammer. Flat as a damn pancake.
Put em in a box and sent them back too where I bought them.
"This cheap crap I bought from you guys just aint working. Can you please fix them and mail them back, thank you."
Never did hear from them. :dunno:
Sorry 4th, I still haven't made it out to the range. Between work and my wifes rheumatoid arthritis I haven't had time to wipe my a$$. I promise that as soon as I try it, you'll be the first to get the report.
