The Wild Bunch Wire / Re: 1911 Trigger Control question
« Last post by Garrison Joe on January 02, 2018, 03:13:22 PM »
I intentionally don't pay attention to resetting trigger at all.    I don't worry about recoil recovery.  I sure don't do the method #2 you listed.

I concentrate (as a one-handed shooter) on tightly controlling recoil to minimize muzzle flip, then getting front sight moved over the next target and slapping trigger.  (OMG, he slaps the trigger?   ;)  )   Only on far targets (20 yards and smaller than a bread box) do I concentrate on a "smooth squeeze".

I don't "wait" for anything when I'm running the 1911.   (Well, I do wait for mag to fall out before getting next mag started in mag well.)   So, pull->move to next while recovering any flip->sight picture->pull.   Finger tip simply releases all pressure on trigger but contact is maintained (to minimize motion to pull again).

Works for me - after 40 years of practice.   ;D   May not work for you.

Good luck, GJ

The Wild Bunch Wire / 1911 Trigger Control question
« Last post by danawr on January 02, 2018, 02:44:16 PM »
Hello,

For the second through last shot:

Should I be holding the trigger at the reset position while waiting on recoil recovery as well as moving gun to the next sight picture then pulling the trigger?
I.E. trigger pull, (reset, wait, sight picture), trigger pull...etc.

Or

Should I be holding the trigger at the pulled position while waiting on recoil recovery as well as moving gun to the next sight picture then do the reset & pull the trigger?
I.E. trigger pull, (wait, sight picture), reset, trigger pull...etc.

Thank you,

Deputy Dan

Thanks for that bit of data, Goatneck.

I've not shot a poly coated bullet, and from things I've read on Cast Boolits site, don't think I will for rifle loads.

Too many molds to try and not enough time.... ;D

Good luck, GJ

If you switch back and forth from jacketed to Moly or poly coated bullets or vice versa one better clean the barrel real good or group size will be unstable until the bore has been flushed clean.  These test were conducted in 2014 and that was the conclusion.

Cody & I came up with this ideal a few years back after one of my friends built his own from an original Winchester 1873. My rifle is the first one Cody built.  It has over 10,000 rounds thru the rifle now.  It will shoot circles around a 1873 chambered in 45LC. I have several of these.  It has never hiccuped one time.  It speaks for itself.

I really like the idea of loading one round for both pistol and rifle. But, I had nothing but grief with mine. I sold it to a fellow shooter and it runs perfectly for him, go figure. He likes it so well he had Cody build another.
It has a lot to do with the shooter.
I shoot Marlins now. They seem harder for me to break.

I've been shooting one (Codymatic), for several years, runs like a typical race gun built by him... A lot faster than I am.. May not be saying much though..  Never had a problem with it or any rifle by Cody........
