Sapphire Pro Range Report

This was my first five magazines out of the Sapphire Pro plus about four magazines from the Sapphire Ultra.
The Pro was disassembled, cleaned (it was not dirty) applied a good amount of Breakfree CLP, function was 100% perfect using Georgia Arms hardball ammo and the magazine that came with the Pro, because that was the only one I had that would fit the full size 9mm frame. I had not had a chance to buy any extra's.
The Sapphire Pro seems to be grouping rounds a little better than the Ultra but that could be me.


EDIT: Sorry about that pic I guess the sun was to bright and kind of washed out the blue on the Sapphires. There are some better pics und SnowTao's range report. Figured out how to add that pic.

That looks pretty good to me.Anything in that K5 zone is going to end things pretty quickly IMO.

Thanks Chuck! I sure hope they don't come out with a Sapphire Custom or any Sapphire in .45acp!! Can't afford another one.

Thanks. I guess I was in shock or something when I saw the Pro at of all places "Sportsman Warehouse" I just could not help myself. It wasn't the pistol that was on my mind or my list to buy next but hey what do you do!
It was very accurate and reliable right out of the box. For the record I did remove the slide, clean with Hoppes, lube with Breakfree, tighten the grip screws before that first range trip.
