Just bought today, first i shot CCI Stinger ammo, very hot. However wanted to see how quiet I could get it, and suprisingly cycled the winchester Super X LR subsonic. Very accurate at close range. Shot and hit a 1 quart oil bottle 10 for 10 at 30 yds. and was accurate (within 3 inches) for all shots. So far very impressed with gun, no jamming, smooth operation, accurate, and very fun and inexpensive to shoot. - Z. B.
I HAVE BOTH THE GSG 1911 & THE CHIAPPA. BOTH ARE VERY ACCURATE, THE GSG IS BUILT BETTER. BOTH ARE WORTH THE MONEY. I HAVE SHOT 5,000 ROUND OF CHEAP AMMO THROUGH THE CHIAPPA, GUN STILL FUNCTIONS LIKE NEW. - R. C.
This has become my favorite gun. I'm in love with it! However, replace the "recoil assembly" with the one from Colt, and you will have a real gem! Anyone who holds it loves it. It's solid, accurate and dependable. It comes in a brown, cardboard box with enough cushion to protect it. Just one mag. A 7rd, PSI/Act Mag. Some don't like them, but I have a dozen and haven't had any problems. Wait, one has a cracked lip. The finish may be a little thin, but my Fobus E2 paddle keeps it snug and hasn't left any permanent marks yet. I've run 230gr Win Rangers and White Box. I've tested 185gr but don't notice the diff. I replaced the grips with a set of Pachmayr Signatures. Next will be a set of night sights. Not much else to do but shoot it and clean it. The shorties do need a little more maint than the full-size 1911's. - ROBERT
