Picked up my HS crusader compact 1911 from mike @ eastcoast today

Nice little package for a descent price for a compact 1911, my first 1911

Range report will follow

Plan on getting some Hogue wrap around finger grove grips for it and probably some of these also since i'm a navy vet http://www.kimberamerica.com/shop/product.php?xProd=372

Here's the eye candy as well as the rest of my collection:



Entire Collection Except new 1911


Taurus TCP


Glock 23 Gen1 passed down from my dad


Glock 26


Taurus PT111 in pink, my wifes


Taurus 709 slim

Those look great! Congrats on the new 1911. I have been wanting one of those to add to my collection as well. I will be looking forward to your range report after you get to break it in!

Nice little 1911! I am going for a Rock Island Armory 1911 Compact Tactical soon. Will be my first 1911 as well.

Range Report:

Put about 120 rounds though the 1911 yesterday.

Fed it a box of Hornady TAP 200gr +P and some CCI pest control shot shells.

then put a box each of Remington 230gr and Tul ammo 230gr ball ammo.

No issues at all as far as malfunctions.

Sights seem to need adjusting some as it shoots to the left about 3inches. I made sure it wasn't operator error by letting a friend shoot a few mags threw it as well as tryed to give it more/less trigger finger. No go still shoots off center.

Not a big concern since I'll be switching the sights out soon

Overall worked fairly flawless out the box.

Bring it by the shop sometime and I'll bore sight it for ya. I can usually get a pistol dead nuts at 15 yards. I can put white dots on those for you also pretty cheap.

C'mon, that's not too expensive... you definitely need some USMC ones Dirk! As for yours jlh2003, those Navy grips would look awesome on that fine pistol!!! :cool:
