    That is very nice, congrats! The new slide markings look so much better to me than what was on the older guns.
    Regards,

    Agreed on the slide markings, much nicer.

    Is that a 380?

    The slide/frame fit is tight as is the barrel. It should be a good shooter. The black oxide on the controls and sights could be darker but itís a production gun.

    Yes 380. Should be lite on the recoil.

    It'll shoot, count on that, you can take it to the bank. I'm not a great shooter but my 3 make me look good on my worst days.

    I find myself liking Tripp Cobra magazines more than Wilson's, but I also have Metalform magazines that work just as good at half the price.

    I use Wilson 47D's exclusively. Most of my 1911's have never been shot with the factory mag. I usually try them just to see if they work but usually that's the last of them, they stay in the box.
    Course now I'm gonna have to try Tripp Cobra magazines, sheeesh will this keep up with Greg never end.............

    On the 47D's I use the metal base for carry and but the rubber buggy bumper ones on the spares so you have more to drive home with. The metal flush base adds a tiny bit of weight to ensure a good mag dump when your staring down the elephant eye to eye.

    All that being said, the factory mags don't look too bad to me. I don't recall shooting them but they appear decent quality.
    You don't like the looks of them?

    Nothing wrong with the OEM mags, just need more than two. I gravitated to Wilson.
    Thanks Greg for the suggestion on Tripp. Decisions Decisions.

    So I tore down the DE. The machining is perfect. This thing locks up tight. Canít wait to dump some rounds.
    Iíll should do a head to head comparison with the CZ97 after the DE is ďbroke inĒ.
