New Auto Ordnance 1911-A1

Just got this home, NIB of the later Kahr persuasion, which are reputedly a better gun than the old Hurley NY version. Very tight out of the box, had to use a bushing wrench to turn the collet out first time, no frame to slide play at all. Looks good and feels good, hope to warm it up this weekend.

I shot on the pistol team during my stint with the Army - it's always nice to see the old GI 45 (or facsimile there-of....)

I have had the 1911BKO (Georgie) for about a year now. I have enjoyed it immensely.

The one I have seems to like the Winchester Service Grade 230gr rounds. The Winchester White Box not so much.

When I remember how to shoot a 1911, "Georgie" fills in the middle of the pistol target at 20 yards. When I forget to pop my wrist up, the bottom of the target gets filled in.

I think you will enjoy this firearm.

Don't get your hopes up.....

I remember way, way, back when (1994's crime bill) Checkmate had bought out KMT and stamped there M14 mags with the KMT logo, instant pre-ban mags.

LOL, I didn't really think it was an original mag by them, but it is the only such 1911 mag I have come across.

I shot it today, no picturesque groups to brag about but I was having an off day with handguns, my boy shot it better than I did, but oh well. It ran fine but for a couple minor bobbles. One hollow point didn't feed first try but did on retry. One ball round didn't feed off the top once, but did on retry. So all in all despite my poor shooting I can see it wants to shoot and I did expect a few hickups owing to break in. Trigger is a little rough still and I had a few BA flyers due to it, but again, that will wear in a bit and I will do better. It ran better first time out than a brand new Rem R1 I have. I give it a thumbs up, well made, all steel traditional 1911 pistol, I like it.

I have an older Auto Ordinance. It had a couple issues and after a couple of failed gunsmith failed remedies, became a paper weight. Now I have a Kimber Ultra Carry II. I love my Kimber.
