Just crossed the 1000 round threshold today with my Eclipse. What a fine full-size 1911! Accurate, reliable, and great looking - tough to find anything to gripe about, so I won't! The finish is wearing well and the pistol seems to gobble up anything I feed it by way of factory 230 grain FMJs, which is all I am interested in shooting at this time. Just thought I'd share a brief account of my experiences over the last couple months in case other members are considering an Eclipse Custom II.

Great to hear! I considered an Eclipse at one time - may have to revisit that idea again!

Thanks for the Eclipse report. I'm a fan of the matte curves and polished flats look. I'll probably buy an Eclipse in the future.

Just acquired an Eclipse Custom II and love the look and feel of it. I am not the first owner but it seems nearly pristine and (I know and trust the seller) the round count is about 300 ball and 50 HP without any sort of hiccup. I will post results when I can take it to the range.o

Well, first range visit yesterday. 100 rounds of AE 230 and twenty of Hydra Shock with no hiccups. VG accuracy and ergonomics for me. Think I will love this pistola!

Well, six months down, hundreds (1K+) of rounds through and zero problems. I actually pocket carry this 5" 1911 in a Sticky Holster (ex LEO friend owns the co.) in deep pocketed Cargo shorts here in Fl. I have an XDs sub compact but only switch when other dress is important and I can't conceal the Eclipse. Love it. Has the scratches now to prove it.
