New Browning Black Label 1911-380

Have wanted one of these since they first came out. I waited until I seen a basic model that was reasonably priced. Finally found it and pulled the trigger. I am very happy with this gun, I fired 100 rounds thru it today with no problems at all. It is very accurate and no recoil at all. All in all happy with this firearm.

I got my wife one when they first came out. She loves it. I enjoy shooting it when she's not looking 😀

I have one of Browning's 1911-22 and it is a hoot to shoot.

I have put close to 500 rounds and have had no problems with it. It has performed flawlessly. I am happy with this little pistol.

Good to hear but...
...the pics??? We need to get a look at the little beauty. Out of curiosity how's the Browning strip down, is there a bushing, feed ramp on the barrel? What's going on in there anyways???

It's a pretty neat little gun, judging by the pictures. It appears to be a real 1911, rather than a Mustang style mechanism.

It does have a bushing but it seems weird compared to full size 1911 and barrel reminds me of a Kahr pistol. Recoil spring is mounted onto plastic guide rod. The weak point is the magazines. They just seem to be cheaply made..Thought I posted a pic earlier, will get one out the next time I take it out. Mine is the very basic model, nothing pretty but it works.
