So I picked up a Desert Eagle 1911 G a few days ago and took it to the range Saturday. I only had 100 rds on me with a few mixed JHP rounds. One thing I noticed is that thumb safety is a little too easy for my preference to engage and disengage. I stretched out the plunger spring a tad bit to make it a crisper "snap" into position. I will probably order a Wilson Combat Plunger spring to take care of that.

Another issue that occurred is the thumb safety itself is a little rough on the back side toward the grip safety and left a nice sore spot on my thumb area. Any ideas to remedy this little problem? I don't really want to replace the thumb safety, I might just have to take a little sand paper to it.

Other than those little issues the gun fired fine, I plan on taking it to the range again next weekend hopefully with about 200 more rounds. It was very accurate or maybe I was just having a good day. At 25 yrds I was getting 1.5 to 2 inch groups, which is good for me. I am pleased with this 1911 and plan on keeping it for a while. Also the magazine was removed and chamber cleared for the picture, no safety violations occurred.

Nice score. The DE is a great gun for the money.

1.5 - 2 inch groups at 25 yards?
Offhand? Sandbag?
Please tell me more about these groups with this weapon?

I see you got one from the batch with front serrations.

Anyway, congrats on a very good 1911.

I bought the DE1911C a few weeks ago, and have only had the chance to fire about 125 rounds through mine, Blazer Brass 230 FMJ, and 25 rounds of Wolf I wanted to burn off. Had zero failures with the ACT Mags that came with the pistol, but had two failure to feed using an older milspec 7 rounder I had in the range bag. I'm also happy with the accuracy, but prefer the white dot sights over the solid black the gun came with when using an indoor range and black targets.

What's a Desert Eagle 1911?

It better at least be available in .45 Super...or .50 GI +p+.

Offhand, I don't really know what the deal was. I never shot that good, it must have just been a good day for me.

I ordered a cylinder and slide plunger spring to replace the original. Has anyone heard of this company? They didn't have wolff or wilson's in stock. I also ordered some gun butter oil to try out also.

I guess they made different runs of production with different slide configurations. :dunno:

I have no first hand experience, but they do some very nice stuff.

How is your thumb safety on your DE 1911, Bac?

The tube spring is a bit weak for my tastes, but its not too bad. If I was going to carry it, it would have to change.

As far as the fitting is concerned, the very back of it could be more flush fit to the frame, but it didn't experience any discomfort on the web of my right hand. However, that's probably the reason for your issue. Its not completely flush in the back for whatever reason.

Your exactly right, I guess the best thing would just be to wear gloves when shooting extensively. I am changing the plunger spring specifically for the reason you mentioned.

I plan on it, I still need to put about another 400 rounds in it for me to accept it.

Yeah, I always shoot quite a few rounds through a gun before I carry it.

I bought a 4" Kimber CT Pro. I have about 200rds thru it. I was wondering what spring to replace the orig. with. Any suggestions? I've had many 1911s and never heard of replacing the recolil spring after 800 rds.

Good looking piece! I've handled one of the DE 1911s at my LGS and it seemed like a well made gun but the thing holding me back from even considering it is the giant billboard wording on the slide.

That does detract from its appearance, but the gun is a value for the dollar.

Just look at the right side. ;) Its a clean looking 1911.

It is a nice looking 1911. If both sides looked like that I would probably own one by now.
