Reader Comments of the Week

“This is the best value of a pistol in the market. An old Star comes close but is no where near as reliable. If you don’t like the trigger weight change out the springs with a MCARBO spring kit. 25 bucks and 15 minutes of your time will reduce pull to 3 to 4 lbs. Accuracy greatly improved from a pistol that was pretty darn accurate. I don’t know why the guy with all the problems had them from different pistols. Never have had a misfire, not one. Other then a heavy trigger this pistol is GREAT for it’s intended use. The heavy trigger is a very easy inexpensive fix. I certainly would not have my wife carry this if I did not have 100 percent confidence in the pistol.”

– RICH, in response to SCCY DVG-1: SCCY’s New Striker-Fired 9mm

“Agree with N.Morris it’s a better way to disassemble to take slide off first especially with match fit bushings and barrels. Pull barrel forward away from bushing then use wrench to rotate bushing and remove from slide. This eliminates wear on the muzzle end of barrel and inside of bushing, a critical lockup point necessary for maximum accuracy from your 1911. This was shown to me nearly 20 years ago by bullseye competitors (precision pistol).”

– KBUESING, in response to Tips & Tricks: How to Easily Clean Your 1911 Pistol

“Long term ammo storage is in acid free boxes from repackbox, then vacuum sealed in bricks that fit in 30 cal plastic ammo cans. Long term guns are stored in VCI bags or treated sil socks. Although… where I am, the average relative humidity is about 28%.”

– CLIFF, in response to The Importance of Proper Gun and Ammo Storage
