Got out and put 250rds through the Spartan this morning. I have to say I'm VERY pleased with its performance. Had zero issues an no failures of any kind. The Spartan locks up tight as a drum and the action is smoothe as silk. The trigger is light and crispas well. Recoil is very minimal which allows for very fast target acquisition on follow-up shots. The adjustable rear sight was dialed in from the start and the fiber optic front post lit up like a laser. I love my .45 1911s, but this 9mm is one helluva fun shooter.

Here are two of the best targets of the day...

Ten rounds @ 10yds

Thirty rounds @ 25yds

Just installed a new 4140 bar stock steel mainspring housing with 30 LPI checkering and oversized magazine guide on the Spartan V. Also added extended bumper pads to the Checkmates. Reloads are going a lot smoother and faster now...

Switched out the grips on the RIA today to a new set of VZ Grips ETC-FRAG G10 panels in Dirty Olive...

I love the dual texture of the ETC panels and the FRAG pattern provides an incredibly solid grip...

no sir........both are ATI "budget guns"
the Commander is a very pleasant surprise to shoot.......perfectly reliable, never FTF and will wear out a "vital zone" target at 25 yds.
only mods (besides the grips) are an Ed Brown 18# recoil spring and a Wilson Combat extended slide release.

the 12 rd. 3.25" "Fatboy" in the top pic is a bit of a different story though......
it has the "multi piece recoil system" that Colt Defenders and Kimber Ultra Carrys use.
the factort system flew apart under fire and the front guide rod/plunger flipped back and hit me in the forehead, locking the rest of the system into the pistol so badly I had to crush the spring to get the slide off.
this was because the barrel guide is held to the rod with a tiny, mild steel SCREW that has become notorious for breaking:

After ATI returned it with the same system, except an Allen head screw, I decided to mod it to the Kimber recoil system.........it works like a charm now!

Well I am still working out how to resize pictures to post.
But my current and tied for all time favorite 1911 (had an Ithaca years ago) of all that I've owned including a very good Kimber Stainless is a lowly Norinco 1911A1. This thing is like a Timex.
I have intentionally beat the snot out of it and it just soaks it all up.
Brass, aluminum and steel cased ammo no problems. HP's, Flat and Round Nosed bullets just don't matter.
No rails and might as well call the front sight permanently fixed. Nothing fancy about it except maybe the Wilson Combat magazines (that I had to work on internally to function properly) or the Bianchi 111 Cyclone tan holster.
This is not the most accurate 1911 or handgun I've owned but it certainly is the most combat ready.
