Barrel bushing was really tight. In most videos I see people are able to remove them fairly easy. Even with their fingers. The plastic bushing wrench that it came with broke trying to get it off. I ordered a metal bushing wrench and was able to get the barrel bushing off but it still took quite a bit of effort.Bushing wrench? There’s the problem right there.
I have 2 of them. A REAL 1911 .45acp and also a .22lr one. Both are decent guns for the price and I've never had a single issue with them, but they are a step below a RIA.Anyone familiar with with SDS 1911s? I'm seeing they're priced comparable to RIA. I'm not really familiar with that manufacturer.
Wow. You just named 3 that I have! I've got a SDS that I paid about $349 for, I have a S&W E Series stainless (I thought they only made stainless), and a Springfield Armory Garrison Stainless. My favorite one (and it's a close one) is the Springfield Armory. The trigger is just a little better IMO that the S&W. All 3 of them are great shooters and all were under $850Someone mention Springfield Armory yet? They make really good 1911s and they have several lines and barrel lengths to choose from.
I should also mention, Smith and Wesson E series 1911's are nice. There's one stainless model left @ riflegear for $979
Or if you just want to go dirt cheap, SDS tisas 1911s are on sale for $319. I'll post a link in the good gun deal thread for both:
I bought one. Should have bought at least 2, since I have 2 stripped lowers in my safe waiting to do something with! Sent from my iPhone using TapatalkThat's why I picked up several Sent from my SM-N986U1 using Tapatalkwww.texasguntalk.com
