I am looking for feedback on the NCG Gas System as it relates to recoil. It seems the system had some problems early on with certain 1911 platforms, but that for the most part they have been worked out. I am certainly in favor of increased accuracy, but my main interest is in reduced recoil for faster follow up shots. I would appreciate any input or comments from anyone who has had hands on experience with this gas system and how it affects recoil. I have gone over the NCG web page extensively, and one point they make, I have noticed myself in the difference between my full size 1911 and my alloy frame Commander. Although the Commander in a lighter gun, the recoil is no greater than, and possibly even less than, the full size steel frame. I think this may be due to less weight in the cycling slide. This is a point made by NCG and the primary reason, I believe, that their Ultimate system has minimal cycling mass in the slide. I read a comment from someone on another forum that he didnâ€™t notice any real recoil reduction unless he was using +P loads. This is the same feeling I get when using a Harrts recoil reducing guide rod in my Glock. On standard target loads, there seems to be little reduction in recoil, but in +P+ loads (Harrts vs stock), there is a noticeable reduction in recoil. My primary goal is recoil reduction with potent defensive loads and well as target loads. My secondary goal is increased accuracy. I am considering either this NCG Gas System or a better barrel and the Harrts system. The latter is about half the cost. Any sincere helpful comments or feed back would be greatly appreciated.
