My Eclipse Custom II

Just crossed the 1000 round threshold today with my Eclipse. What a fine full-size 1911! Accurate, reliable, and great looking - tough to find anything to gripe about, so I won't! The finish is wearing well and the pistol seems to gobble up anything I feed it by way of factory 230 grain FMJs, which is all I am interested in shooting at this time. Just thought I'd share a brief account of my experiences over the last couple months in case other members are considering an Eclipse Custom II.

Great to hear! I considered an Eclipse at one time - may have to revisit that idea again!

Thanks for the Eclipse report. I'm a fan of the matte curves and polished flats look. I'll probably buy an Eclipse in the future.
