just got a half case of fed american eagle delivered today
too bad I dont have a walmart nearby to pick up value packs of winchester white box for $20
shot it for the first time today....
Accurate. Easily shot one ragged hole at 7 yds, around 2" groups at 15 yds, spread out alot at 25, but thats cuz I suck at shooting 25 yds with pistols. All offhand, From a rest I would assume it would easily group 1" at 25 yds...
more reliable than I expected, being a custom, hand fit, gun. 0 FTE's or FTF's.. the only thing that happened (twice) is the first round failed to chamber when reloading... to be expected, brand new, tight chamber.
the one problem I had was with the rear sight. Ed Brown uses this "Slip fit" system for mounting the rear sight (fixed Novak night sights). What it is is the sight is only fastened by a set screw, and fits loosely in the recess in the slide. The idea is that you adjust it to where you want it, so it shoots point of aim for you, and then you use the provided red loctite on the screw and the sight is permanently fixed.
I didnt use the loctite, and even tho I had it screwed down tight, it kept shooting loose. When I first shot it the sight was dead center, and surprise surprise, it shot point of aim.
I loctited it after I was done cleaning it, and tried my best to make the sight dead center. Unnecessary pain in the balls if you ask me... If the sights are dead center and you're shooting to the left or right, the problem is your technique, not the gun. It should be corrected by practice, not by PEARMANENTLY fixing a fixed sight in an off-center position.
