Ultra Carry 11 range report

I put 200 rounds of Remington 185 gr HTP and 100 rounds of 230 FMJ thru my Ultra this past weekend. I could not believe how good the Crimson trace green laser grips worked. In sunny conditions at 25 yards you could see the green dot plain as day. If you hold it steady off sand bags it hits right where the green dot is. It was hard to turn them off and use the sights but I managed to keep them off most of the time. The little 3" 1911 shot great I'm not sure I like the stock sights they are challenging to get used to. My son kept telling me to stop repeating Front Sight, Front Sight, Front Sight while shooting. (It helps me with my group size). The trigger is excellent I really liked it. I'll try to post some pictures but I'm pretty bad at that, still old school with that I'll get my kids to help.

Way to go man! Excellent. I am as excited as you reading this report. We love to hear from people with excitement like your's. No one like's everything about anything. You just have to have the passion and anything including sights can be changed if necessary. I am glad to read of your pleasure with the laser sights. I have never owned them so it's a treat to hear from someone who has and report on them. Thanks for the report.

Nice range report. Proven fact green laser is more visible and at greater distance than red.

I have two Kimber's with red laser and one with green and I wish they were all green.

Great report jef! I can't see my red laser in sunlight. I have heard green worked but your report confirms it for me. Thanks!

Nice write up about Crimson Trace lasers in the 2016 Lands & Grooves by Kimber catalog if you have one. I called and requested one from Kimber took about 3 weeks but it was free.
