This is my new 1911 22 from Walther. It is made by them and licensed from Colt.
I'm really liking this gun. It feels just like a standard Colt 1911. It came with one magazine and I ordered 5 more so I have enough to shoot a Steel Challenge match with a spare.
Although I really like the gun I did do some modifications to it. It came with a 9.5 pound trigger. It was nice and crisp but a bit on the heavy side so I ordered a Cylinder & Slide trigger kit. I installed it all today and wow, what a difference. I got the pull down to 5 pounds 4 ounces on my Lyman Digital Scale.
I also added a competition trigger that adjusts pre travel. It needed a little sanding to work 100% but I like the reach and feel of it.
I shot 200 rounds of Aguila Super Extra and 100 rounds of CCI Blazer without a hiccup. The Aguila are definitely more powerful than the Blazers. Groups were pretty good but I'm sure they will be better now.
There were no surprises installing the new trigger, hammer sear and disconnector. The mainspring was a little difficult. I thought the retaining Dowel Pin was needed an Allen wrench but after a call to Walther they said all I had to do was compress the mainspring and push out the pin. The OEM parts shot out like a bullet but fortunately landed at my feet. I needed the inside parts so I could replace the spring that came with the C&S kit.
I made a holster for it. My copy of the Yaqui Slide and it works real well. I had to reform it because I put a Dawson Precision fiber optic sight on it. It's a little taller than the stock sight. It came with the red fo installed. I'm going to try it but will probably replace it for a green one.
