Auto Ordinance 1911
OK I got a chance to get the new Gov 1911 down to the range to try it out. The short story, I think I have found a new favorite gun!
The 1911 Gov by Auto Ordinance is a no frills standard GI gun with a seven round mag. The one I have is parkerized with plastic grips.
She shoots well if maybe a bit low at 25 yards. I will have to go a few more times before I can tell if it is me or the gun. The sights are small so it takes a bit of getting use to.
I started with standard Winchester white box ball ammo and she ran great. All on the paper, most low but one in the 10 ring. . .. had to love that. After 20 rounds of ball I put 20 rounds of Winchester white box hollow points through it and she still ran fine.
After a total of 80 rounds or so I called it a day. . . It was an outdoor range in MA on New Years eve after all so it was a bit cold and we did have 6+ inches of snow on the ground to get through to the targets. . . . but a great day !
Can’t wait to put a few more rounds through it and see if I need to adjust the sights a bit. I have to say this is a great gun as far as I am concerned. A great start to the 1911 family. I think this will make a great carry gun once I get use to it and get it sighted in. I am glad I got it and highly recommend it to anyone looking for an affordable 1911.
