    I finally got a mech tech for my 1911's. Oh am I excited to take it for a spin... threw on a millet red dot for fast aquisition of those dangerous steel plates... anybody have any experience with these little beauties? to they like a certain ammunition , i have been told they are a bit picky with ammo. any truth to this?

    Nice - I often think about getting one for my G17. How long did it take for you to get it from when you placed the order?

    Be sure to post info on how you find its fit, performance, overall cost/benefit analysis. I've had my eye on these little wonders for some time now but just can't figure out if what they add offsets the cost. I have a 7.62x39 carbine, but was interested to find out mech tech will be making their CCU's for Springfield XD's. Let us know what you think of yours as you break it in and learn its ways. Thanks!

    I bought one when they were only available for 1911's years ago, I've never had any problems with it and with the red dot it's been one of my wife's favorite guns, point and shoot, low recoil and accurate out to about 50-60 yrds, never tried to see what it'll do out farther.

    Yeah, if you go to the website that is an option.

    Congrats

    I hope you like it a lot. I had the chance to shoot a friends a couple years ago and it was fun.:D I have recently been thinking it might be fun to have one. Let us know how it shoots. I don't know if I would go for the 1911 conversion or the Glock conversion. I am curious to know how yours performs with your Taurus as that is what I have for a 1911 right now.

    I picked one up a few months back for my glock and it has been a hoot! It feeds everything I have fed it and it loves my reloads which are 124 Gr. LRN that are run at fairly low speed. with WWB i have shot it at 75 yds off the bench and can keep them all well within a 5" group.

    The only down side that I have found is the thing is HEAVY, and to make it worse all of the weight is out front. I do have the quad rail on it and the telestock so i think i brought it on myself:eek:

    overall i love it

    I think it is pretty awesome... still havent had the chance to take it for a spin... it is pretty heavy, but I dont mind it...i imagine it willl obsorb the recoil quite well... I will update when I get to the range some time this or next week..
