The Wild Bunch Wire / Re: Occasional Failure to Eject with 1911
« Last post by VICIOUS on September 09, 2019, 09:09:12 AM »
HI GANG. Yesterday at a WB match, a shooter had the slide closing on the loaded round before the round could chamber. Like it hit the case in the side and marked it. SO shooter tells me a maker in USA (custom maker I believe) That with full power loads to use 20 pound recoil spring. I strongly suggested that factory's install 16 or maybe 18 pound recoil springs and informed him I used 14 recoil and 19 hammer main spring. As my Smith and Wesson functioned perfectly the shooter is thinking of trying lighter recoil spring. My power factor is 162.

The 1911 worked well on Friday with two 28 round pistol stages and one 42 round pistol stage.  No failure to eject with my new 15 pound Wolff recoil spring and a cleaned-out extractor channel. 

And my Model 12 worked well on all three stages!

I'm making progress.


Good to hear!

HI Gang; Was told to get Model 12 only after serial number 500,000 something about minor change at the factory made them better, Just hear say so do not quote me.
DO beware of LIGHT WEIGHT model 12 as the mag tube is shorter and may only hold 4? or something like that.

Okay, so a nearby pawn shop has a Model 12, s/n makes it 1959, 2 3/4", Mod choke.  From what I'm reading this might be one to get.  It has the more modern forend wood, which I don't care for.  Will a '97 forend fit?  Priced at $399 but I know it has been there over a month so maybe they will come down some.

I’m pretty certain that ‘97 wood won’t fit but there is plenty of wood available. I keep quite a selection handy.

There's a post on the Cowboy wire about WB 1911's, someone responded positively in regards to the Iver Johnson. You might want to ask them some questions.

Wild Bunch Matches / Greenville SC October 27, 2019

Plans are in the works to hold a Wild Bunch match as an “option” at the Greenville Gunfighters’ monthly match on October 27, 2019.

Early indications are that we will write stages around pistol and shotgun only (I’d like to see an all shotgun stage).

More details to follow.

Came across one of these.  It is actually a plated job.  Looks like might be legal for Traditional even but has a weird little hole in the front sight. 

From my understanding they are made in the Philippines.

Anyone have any experience with them?

Alright, crappy, good?
