Thumbs up Five Easy Pieces






A nice article for the aficionados of the brand. In case you can find the magazine. I bought it at Walmart today.

... Through the 375 test rounds there were non malfunctions. But the real news of this shootout is how similar the results are. .....


This is the magazine:

Wink Try It Again!!!

I'm a big fan of Shooting Times. Any of their special issues, like this one are always good. Great writers, great articles and very in depth, easy reading.

They did the article on the Kimber 1911's. They should have done on on another brand of 1911's also. The results of that would probably turn out some interesting facts!!! It could be bad news for some of the Kimber Haters out there!!! Maybe ST could have Bart Skelton do one of his dad's torture tests to compare 5 Kimbers with 5, let's say Springfield Armory 1911's. Skeeter (Bart's dad) originated the torture test in ST by shooting 50,000 rounds through a Smith and Wesson Model 39. At the end, the frame had a small crack in it, but was still shooting.

Thanks for sharing this, Buck!!

Not so much a torture test on that model 39 but more of a durability/dependability test. Federal Ammunition put 297,000 rounds through a H&K .
