7 Rounds @ 7 Yards.

Nice day here, took the ATI 1911a1 "Commander" out back and ran 7 rounds through it. Worked like a champ, sights are dead on, couldn't be happier. Still need to find 3 cases that I've "lost", won't give up until I do, dang OCD,LOL. Fliers were totally my fault, not use to such a nice single action trigger.
Anyway, if anyone's looking for a well built 1911a1 that won't break the bank ATI is making some pretty good ones IMHO.

Nice, seems you're wasting the rest of the target though.

I can always eat more pizza and get more targets.LOL.
Top of a pizza box, put a plastic cup in the center, spray paint around it, remove cup, let "target" dry and go have fun. Pretty much a free target.
I've not shot a 1911a1 in years(not shot much in general to tell ya' the truth) guess it IS a lot like riding a bike. Good ol' muscle memory is still there after all these years.

I could go for that gun

What's the typical high price for those?

You can normally find them new for $475-$500 if you shop around. Tombstone Tactical has the RIA in stock and if you pay "cash"(i.e. Money Order, Certified Funds) and not use a credit/debit card you can get into one(depending on what your dealer charges, mine is $32 bucks) for around $460 out the door. Of course they'll add 3% for CC/DC use but still, you should be able to find one for under $500. I think the ATI and RIA's are some of the best deals in 1911a1's right now. If you get a basic gun you can always trick it out with the parts you like and still be way under what a bone stock S.A. or other "higher quality" gun would run ya'.
Seems to shoot as well as any 1911a1 that I've ever owned or any semi-auto for that matter. I'm happy with it, it's a keeper IMHO.

7-yards? You do realize that if that pizza box had a knife you probably wouldn't have stood a chance . . . right?


I'm teasing. Serious, but teasing.

Nice group either way.

LOL, yep, forget the exact stats but a person can cover 21 feet in no time at all. Of course if I would have started shooting at 7 yards I think with that group of 5 I'd have pretty much totally destroyed the heart OR with a group like that I could have put 5 right between the eye Zombie Style and dropped em' before he got to me. Either way I'm really lovin' this 45. Glad I had the dream that got me to thinking about getting one and glad I lucked out and found this one. Also, as a side note, recoil isn't bad at all, no where close to the PX4 Storm, 40cal that I had. Guess the weight of the gun has a bit to play in that but also that big ol' slow 45 keeps recoil from not being very snappy.

I don't want to hijack but this is worth pointing out:
Tueller Drill



run it sometime. It'll make you break out in goosebumps and the hair stand up on the back of your neck.














. . .and then hopefully find a competent professional trainer that will teach you the technique for beating the drill.

Never did that drill but I did try what IIRC was called the "El Presidente" one time when we were setting up for an IPSC match. Man that was fun.

I think the technical formula to determine the time is age divided by height x the number of pizza boxes

Yep, the 642-2 is my EDC/CCW gun and the 1911a1 is my HD/Plinking gun. It's nice to finally have two guns so I can have what I want when I want.

P.S.
I have to send out a big "Thank you Babe" to my wife for helping me get this. We had to redo a small loan that we'd almost paid off so we could get new tires on her mini-van and she was kind enough to get a few extra bucks so I could pick this up. Sometimes she gets on my last nerve(and I'm sure I get on her's too) but deep down I really love that woman.

TN.Frank,

Your ATI Commander has the optional Novak-knockoff sights. Mine has the standard sights.

These shot groups were made on a day with nasty crosswind.

Looks just like the one I have except for grips and sights. ATI does make a pretty decent 1911a1, not just for the money but for any kind of money.
