Saturday I took the Colt out to the range, while it loved CCI Mini-Mags & CCI Blazers, it would not function with Winchester High Velocity. The trigger was heavier than I like but functioned flawlessly. The problem with the Winchesters was even though they fired there wasn't enough power to feed in the next round after ejecting the fired case. The adjustable sights worked as advertised and I can honestly recommend this pistol to anyone looking for a training pistol or practice for his 1911.:D

Handy,

Did you think about changing out the recoil spring? It might have a heavier spring in it? Just a thought buddy!

I've had my Colt/Walther 1911 .22 for a while now. Shoots CCI mini mags ok but really likes the Rem high velocity Golden Bullets. Recently put a new recoil spring from Walther as the old one seemed to be getting a little sluggish.

Thought about buying one of those Oldhand...just never got around to it.

22's can be picky with what they like. ( POA/POI )

My Browning Buckmark loves CCI Mini-Mags and Remington HV Golden Bullets...just like the gentlemen above stated.

Enjoy...

Thanks guys, I will have to try those Remington's. I have about 600 of the Blazers left and I will be using the 500 Winchesters I have left in my Marlin 39a.:D

My 39a is a four digit serial number, have never checked the date of manufacture on it. There have been millions made so I assume it is old.;)

My very 'woodsy' highschool (early 1950s) buddy carried a Marlin 39 on most of our summertime hikes in the hills. Don't know if it was an 'A'.

Checked with Marlin and my 39a was made in 1954, just a year younger than my wife.:)
