Took both to the range and 300 rounds of ammo. 250 rounds of my own 200gr reloads and 50 rounds of Golden Saber 185gr.
Custom Carry: 200 rounds of reloads and 25 of Golden Saber. The gun now has a total of 425 rounds. Not a single failure of anykind
Concept VIII: 50 rounds of reloads and 25 of Golden Saber. Total of 525 rounds through the gun not a single failure of anykind.
DW CBOB, sorry no rounds for you today :crying:

Its a shame Rock River stopped building 1911s. I thought they were everything Baer is and then some.

Its sad that one of the best 1911 builders in the world stopped to build plastic rifles.

Brian, I fixed for you. Now I totally agree with your statement.:tongueout:

Very true, Al. :)

I agree that their 1911s were much better than their ARs, respectively speaking.

I'm not much of an AR guy, but from everything I've seen and heard, RRA ARs are mid-pack, while their 1911s were certainly top notch in every way.

They obviously have to go where the greatest profit margins are, but its a damn shame they stopped doing something they were great at to focus on something they're OK at.

I agree. I like HP-38/231 much better for range loads.

So do I, but only on pivot and friction surfaces. All other surfaces are bone dry so as not to become a soot and grit magnet. ;)

(The above P226ST has 20,000 rounds through it.)




It always amazes me the number of threads where people are whining about their guns FTF, FTE, FTF...

My guns always work, all the time, because I listen to and have learned from one of the most infamous Sig pistolsmiths in the country. He's been building and shooting Sigs, HKs, and 1911s for 35 years.


Now it has over 21,000 rounds through it...

I got to put quite a few rounds through my buddies 226ST yesterday and damn what a sweet shooting pistol. Real close in accuracy to the Baer shooting steel at 20 yards or so. Of course the first thing I did when we started was go in and grab the syringe of slide glide. I use it on all my Sigs but not the TRS. I don't have one of those gay little paint brushes yet but I'm working on it. If you have an extra Mark please send it up. :supergrin:

I got that brush from the Penguin. :rofl:






Seriously, my wife found a brush in her crafts box. I just squirt the grease in the slide rails and run the brush through to smooth it out and remove the excess.

Drop me an email with your mailing address, and I'll send you one.

Also, if the decocking lever is rubbing against the frame, I'll send a couple 10mm OD x 5mm ID x .006" thick washers too. I sent a few dozen to some Sigsters a few weeks ago.
