Its an accurate plinker and hasn't choked yet that I recall.
For a .22 the Browning 1911 22 is a fun little gun.
Especially when it can do this with a full load on board at ten yards when I do my part (which isn’t all that often ).
most Colt .45s, have been very good, along with "blasphemous" Kimber and Dan Wesson 9mms, and Kimber and STI .38 Supers.
The fit and finish on your Ronin looks pretty impressive. Gonna have to check one out.
Lol…I know, I know… but I have three .45 ACP 1911’s so I’m trying something new .
I recall getting that same info from some 25 year old kid behind the gun store counter when I asked if they had a 9mm 1911 I could check out. (He wasn’t joking though, he was really condescending.)
Assuming (probably correctly) that he thought that 9mm 1911’s were just a new fad, I replied, “Hmmmm, since the 9mm has been offered by Colt in their 1911 for 70-odd years, I think one or two folks out there may take an opposite position.” He had no response, and I left.
I was surprised how much I like the 9mm 1911… so much so I went out and immediately bought a nearly -matching Kimber Ultra Carry II in 9mm as well.
I may be hooked…
For a gun with a 850-ish MSRP I am very happy with it. It feels and shoots like a more expensive pistol for sure.
We share a similar experience except, after shooting everything else for the last 50 years about 2 years ago I decided a 38 Super had to come off my Bucket List so I bought a Dan Wesson PM-38 along with dies, powder, brass and bullets.
Absolutely love the caliber. I'm getting and honest 1200fps. out of my target loads and 1400fps. in my self defense loads.
Liked it so much I added a alloy framed DW 38Super Guardian to my collection. It is now my preferred CCW.
I’ve never gotten the .38 Super bug. I know it’s got a decent amount of horsepower for such a smallish cartridge but it just never tripped my switch.
I’m not saying never, though. I’ve learned not to do that as I’m easily tempted by a nice firearm or a deal I can’t pass up .
Of mine, I have two favorites, Colt Delta Elite (1988 production with excellent chamber support and no crack) and Kimber Eclipse plus II 10mm. The Kimber had to go back to the factory but they made it right as it is a very nice shooter.
My decision will be made after my next purchase.
