2-24-16 Ultra Raptor 45acp

I went to the range today to put some break-end rounds through new guns. I already have a SS Ultra so this gun was no new feeling getting used to. I put the target at max distance and let'r rip.

I have 4 brand new Wilson Combat magazines that need testing out too so I didn't use a well tried magazine with the thought that if I started having problems I would switch to a tried and true magazine to get that possibility out of the equation.

The steep sloped sights on the New Raptor where not what I was familiar with on the other Raptor but they did just fine,,,just different. I was rocking along with simi-rapid fire when I had a hiccup. The slide was locked back with three rounds fired and the next round was sitting down flat in the magazine as if the front of the follower didn't come up. I re-racked it and had no other problems with the remaining rounds from two fifty round boxes of Blazer Brass 230 grain RN. I did use all 4 new mags and they seem to be ok.

Do you think the sexy Raptor doesn't draw attention. I saw a lot of eyes sneaking a peek and a lot of drool on the glass behind me.

Rapture's are easily one of the best looking 1911s ever.
