Colt National Match 1911 Pistol – Is This The Best 1911 Colt Ever Made

Don reviews his new Colt National Match 1911 Pistol and realizes he has a problem. Colt National Match 1911 PistolUSA – -(AmmoLand.com)-Hello….. My name is Don, and I have a 1911 problem.I suppose admitting it is part of the solution, but this is a problem I may not want to solve. Colt has brought back their National Match 1911, and have successfully blended their high-end machining with custom hand fitting. There are those us who honestly thought Colt would never again produce a firearm of this quality and workmanship. I am glad to be wrong.Colt National Match 1911The look, the gun is blued, and it’s the old style bluing Colt was know for. Deep and rich the color draws you in. I don’t dislike stainless but let us be honest there is an entire generation of shooters who know only the coldness of stainless and the antiseptic touch of plastic. The finish on this gun is beautiful.The gun locks up tightly. Take the gun and rack the slide. You can feel the barrel locking into battery and staying there.The trigger comes factory set at 4lbs. It is crisp, clean with no (Absolutely No!) creep and no over travel. No annoying Series 80 safety to get in the way. I prefer a lighter trigger, but this is SO clean I’ll shut up and shoot. Celebrate the 1911 – Order your T-shirt or Hoodie and support AmmoLand News.The accuracy is exactly what Colt has been promising for the Gold Cups for 60+ years. You’re going to get under 2 inches at 25 meters. The National Match 1911 was shot standing at 10 meters, without a rest. Ok, I need to move the sights up and a touch to the right but not much. The more I shot the gun, the more we became one. If the last phrase doesn’t mean anything to you, I suggest you get out and shoot more.To be honest, the gun could have held them all in the red if I’d done my job, the mistakes were mine. I’m experienced enough to know when it’s usually me and when it’s the gun. I’ve never liked it when an author provides you pistol results from a rest. How the gun feels and performs in your hand is what matters. It seems I’m never in a match where the competitors shoot their 1911’s from a rest, only the Glock guys to that….Lastly, guns are built for a purpose. The National Match is a COMPETITION gun; You’re not going to carry it. You’re not going to keep it stored in your night table. This gun is built for competition. No memory bump, no oversized safety or slide release. There are some simple facts about a weapon like this, you do not compare it to non-competition guns, and shooting it and shooting it right will make you a better marksman.This gun DEMANDS the best from you. If you let it, it will drag you there, and make you a better marksman. I believe this IS the best 1911 colt ever made.

Just In For Hunting Season, Thompson Center Compass Rifle – Review

Just In For Hunting Season: The Thompson Center Compass RifleU.S.A. –-(Ammoland.com)- The temperatures are cooling, the days are getting shorter, and a reclusive Bambi is getting more visible. Deer season will soon be upon us if it hasn’t started in your locale yet. While fewer hunters are hitting the woods year by year, hunting rifle options continue to increase at lower and lower prices. In the past, it was not uncommon for a hunting gun to be only one gun used for decades on end without much change but now you can get a decent hunting rifle for a few hundred dollars. This price tag used to be the realm of the single-shot rifle but over the last ten years, budget bolt actions have flooded gun store shelves. The Savage Axis,  Ruger American, Remington 770 and 783, the list goes on. Another more recent addition is the Thompson Center Compass.Thompson Center Compass RifleChambered in a popular variety of cartridges from the zippy 204 Ruger to the 300 Win. Mag, the TC Compass is ordinary in some ways and extraordinary in others especially at its $300 price tag. The price, threading from the factory, and the rate I saw this rifle leave the shelves inspired me to get one, despite my abrasive attitude toward “hunting” rifles. Today, the company is owned by Smith & Wesson. In fact, when you look at your TC rifle, it will say that it is indeed made by Smith & Wesson.The name Thompson Center may not ring a bell to you if you are used to popular names like Marlin, Winchester, Remington, Savage, ect. ect. But that name has been around for a while and has an undercurrent of popularity. I first knew them when I made my initial forays into muzzleloading rifles. In the past, they created some of the best traditional muzzleloaders. It was only later that I figured out they made cartridge guns too. No morning hunting program on TV would be complete without some guy with a laptop and a break-action TC rifle or pistol like the Contender. Today, the company is owned by Smith & Wesson. In fact, when you look at your TC rifle, it will say that it is indeed made by Smith & Wesson.Basic FeaturesFrom afar on the gun rack the TC Compass can be hard to spot amongst other comparable rifles. It sports a composite stock with a trim rubber butt pad. The stock’s smooth contours are broken up by a series of unique triangular grooves on the fore-stock and pistol grip to give you something to hold onto in leu of conventional checkering. The stock is mounted to a 22 inch tapered matte-black barrel that terminates in a knurled knob at the muzzle. This is the thread protector. Yes, the Compass comes with 1/2×28 threads right from the factory should you desire to add a suppressor or flash hider. The Compass, like most modern hunting rifles, does not sport iron sights but instead we get a removable weaver base mounted above the receiver. The rifle is bolt action–of course– and features an odd flag safety that reminds me of the Mauser rifle, except the flag pushes forward for fire and is retracted back to make the gun safe. The Compass feeds from a detachable box magazine and the capacity is going to vary on the chambering of your choice. Nominally, the magazine will hold four rounds but my rifle in 5.56 NATO holds five rounds. Removing the bolt is done by pressing the takedown lever on the left side of the receiver and retracting the bolt. A prominent selling point of the Compass is the advertisement of Smith & Wesson incorporating 5R rifling.A prominent selling point of the Compass is the advertisement of Smith & Wesson incorporating 5R rifling. While I cannot attest to anything special relating to this, this 5.56 NATO chambered Compass is utilizing a 1 in 9 twist rate. I ended up going with a budget Tru-Glo 3-9×32 scope for my test–basic and budget like the Compass and optic brand elitist be damned.On The RangeThe TC Compass was the first hunting rifle I sat behind for the better part of eight years and testing went on for just as many months at distances ranging from 50 to 200 yards with a variety of ammunition and bullet weights. That ammunition included:Fiocchi Extrema .223 Remington 50 grain hollow-pointWinchester 5.56mm 50 grain FrangibleFrontier 5.56 NATO 55 grain FMJHornady Black 5.56  NATO 62 grain FMJHornady Black .223 Rem. 75-grain Boat-Tail Match hollow-pointI first sat down with the Compass to zero the optic using some el Cheapo Frontier 55 grain ammunition at fifty yards. On paper, I was in the bullseye within five rounds– and no, I did not boresight the rifle. I mounted the optic tightly and then took it out. Never rely on a factory or store boresight to be true with your given load. After that, I ejected the magazine, pressing on the wide recessed paddle at the front of the magazine well. Reloading was fast to do. The mostly-polymer magazine was buttery smooth and easy to load detached from the rifle but after prolonged sessions I often found myself loading the rifle by dropping a round into the ejection port or thumbing rounds down into the attached magazine through the port. In any case, I ended my day at two hundred yards with both Frontier and Hornady Black 62 grainers.On paper the 55-grain ammo did better, even though Hornady’s ammunition has been very close to handloads in previous tests. I was busting stationary clays and perforating water bottles out to two hundred yards. There was no discernable drop between the fifty-yard zero and two hundred yards–something to say about modern rifle cartridges in general. The rifle itself handled very well. Ejection was brisk, throwing the cases several feet to my right. There were no failures to feed but sometimes I did find that the bolt dragged some when bolting forward. It sometimes felt as if there was excess movement once the bolt was fully rearward and it caused some hesitation when pushing forward again. It was enough to notice but not enough to affect performance or affect speed to make any appreciable difference. Further, there was no appreciable difference in terms of accuracy or recoil of the 55 or 62-grain ammunition.The report was very loud–and thank goodness for earplugs. But there was no recoil at all. My view inside the scope was not disturbed at all. I could clearly see the impacts as I made them, though this may not be true in other Compass calibers–in which case that thick rubber butt pad would be a great aid. I could achieve, at best 1.8 inches at one hundred yards with either ammunition from a bench rest. This isn’t stellar but it isn’t bad considering the rest and the not-so-good-shooter.55 grain and 62-grain ammunition are by far the most common in the 5.56 NATO/.223 Remington offerings that the Compass can digest but the time would soon come that I would try more extreme ends of the spectrum. These rounds are at home in the varmint taking world with light, fast 35-50 grain loads and longer, range deer-worthy loads above 62 grains. It was clear at one hundred yards, the 50-grain loadings I tested did not fare well at all and even lighter loads might be pointless. Both the Fiocchi and Winchester ammunition casted a low, four to eight inch group with the Winchester taking the cake in the department of terrible. I loaded up the 75 grain Hornady match rounds thinking the rifling would be too slow to stabilize them. The 1 in 9 twist is more at home with lighter grain bullets and 1-8 or even 1-7 as optimal for heavy 75-80 grain bullets. This is a great subject of debate but it was settled when I sent those pills downrange. Over several strings, I held five round groups at 1.2 inches at worst with my best turning in .87 inch with three rounds through the same hole. Given my shaky love of coffee and inexpensive glass, I imagine some of that accuracy had to do with the rifle paired with this excellent ammunition. A group posted with Hornady Black 75 grain match hollow-points. This .87 inch group is excellent and the others are not far behind.Final ThoughtsThe TC Compass represents perhaps the best of the budget bolt action rifles available today. The rifle’s weight and size is not uncomfortable for a smaller statured shooter yet not too small for a larger framed guy like me. The stock felt solid and the “checkering” was not obnoxiously uncomfortable to grab onto but permitted plenty of purchase. I liked the money-saving inclusion of the pre-installed scope bases and inverted flag safety. Although I have no use for a flash hider or suppressor, I can see the benefit of having a hunting gun threaded for those options right from the factory. Accuracy was excellent for the price point and the rifle never failed to fire.The only downside for me is the not-so-smooth bolt work and the mostly polymer magazine. I would have preferred a stamped steel magazine–or at least a stamped steel magazine catch that would give more trust to the end user. Even so, the magazine was never a problem in the three hundred plus rounds. The only true point of annoyance lay in the trigger. The flat faced trigger offers no play or take-up. This is something few people would want but I do like this as a felt response to how much pressure is left before the final break, letting off a shot. Here, there is no trigger feedback and I pull against an unmoving wall of steel until the final, clean break. Your mileage and opinions may vary, like mine do. But even with my nitpicking, the Compass gets an A.The TC Compass is a rifle loaded with features and accurate to boot. Whether you are a new sportsperson looking for your first rifle or an old hand looking for a loaner or beater gun, the TC Compass should be on your radar.About Terril Hebert:Terril Hebert is a firearm writer native to south Louisiana.

Ed Brown Products Introduces Evolution Series of Custom Pistols

Ed Brown Products Introduces Evolution Series of Custom PistolsPERRY, MO –-(Ammoland.com)- Ed Brown Products, Inc. is proud to release the KC9 as the first new model in the Evolution Series of pistols.Nearly 20 years ago the Kobra Carry took the industry by storm giving the world the first look at the Ed Brown Bobtail, which later became the most widely copied option on the 1911. The combination of Snakeskin treatment and the Ed Brown Bobtail are now legendary and are fully incorporated into the KC9, the first model in the Evolution Series. Completely optimized for 9mm, the KC9 is smaller, thinner, and lighter than its predecessor. The new pistol retains the comfortable and proven 1911 controls, so there are no new muscle memories to develop. The KC9 retains the standard 1911 grips, provided they are cut for the Ed Brown Bobtail®, which are now available virtually everywhere, and ships with the Ed Brown Exclusive Labyrinth Grips to make for a great looking package. Some parts were completely re-designed to take advantage of modern improvements such as the new external extractor, easy-to-change front sight, smaller ledge-style rear sight, bull barrel, and a flat wire recoil spring system. The re-engineered slide has been shortened to 4″, thinned substantially for weight reduction, and includes a unique 7-top custom cut, with special front and rear serrations. A recessed slide stop completes the package, making for the perfect custom 9mm 1911.Like all other Ed Brown 1911’s, the KC9 is hand-built from fully machined components, loaded with custom features, and backed by a written Lifetime Warranty.

These pistols will be built in small, custom, identical batches, utilizing all latest in machining equipment and techniques to get every last bit of efficiency from the build process.

Smith & Wesson Model 19 Classic .357 Magnum Revolver – Review

Model 19 ClassicGRAND RAPIDS, MI USA -(Ammoland.com)- The .357 Magnum has always been a round that inspires confidence and Smith & Wesson’s Model 19 is a name that does the same. The two have been hand-in-hand since the mid 1950’s and have very famous names associated with them, such as Elmer Keith and Bill Jordan. The Model 19 became the ‘peace officer’s dream’ gun and it saw a long and storied history of use. Today we are going to take a look at S&W’s re-release of the historical gun in the form of the new Model 19 Classic.There are many ways to look at guns like this in today’s world. The newbie and plastic fantastic lover may wonder why S&W would go through the effort to release a gun that is, on the outside, far behind in terms of technology, capacity, and weight. Lighter, faster, and softer-shooting guns are available everywhere, so why would a person consider dropping hard-earned cash on a vintage-styled six-gun? Smith & Wesson Model 19 ClassicThe answer to this is simple: the past never really dies. There are those who look at the way things were and can’t understand the draw of those golden years. Many people are comfortable in the idea of the present, where new and exciting things are always happening. Rarely do they stop and ask themselves where they are being led. Then there are some of use that look at the past and see that it speaks of the times when lawmen knew everyone in town by name and reaching the moon was a dream worth pursuing. The guns of our peace officers are a sad commentary about the realities of living in a world often governed by feeling and not facts.The lines of the Model 19 Classic take you back to those special days. It is very likely that your father or grandfather had a gun like this, albeit a first run sample. The six-gun is linked to the American spirit, and the .357 Magnum is inseparable from the national legends of gangsters, G-Men, hunters, and famous fighters. It could be said that the Model 19, and even the earlier Model 27, are equivalent to the Colt SAA in our most recent century. The .45 Colt was a standard for decades and achieved many great things, just as the .357 Magnum did in the decades after the old soldier lost popularity.It should be no surprise to you now why Smith & Wesson chose to bring this gun back. Unlike many legacy guns, the Model 19 has some significant uses today. The .357 Mag has never lost effectiveness in any role that it has been used for, be it hunting, self-defense, target shooting, and law enforcement. There are likely thousands of officers across the country that still rely on this cartridge as a back-up. The .357 Mag has never lost effectiveness in any role that it has been used for, be it hunting, self-defense, target shooting, and law enforcement.The Model 19 Classic differs from the originals in several ways. It incorporates an integral trigger lock and a frame-mounted firing pin among other small changes. It is not a 1:1 copy of the original, but rather a modernized take. Just like the original, it has a beautiful blued finish and wooden grips. Overall, this is a solidly built revolver that has all the handling characteristics of those from years past.The nice thing about this gun, as opposed to others made today, is that it takes advantage of a heavy barrel. The balance of this 37oz piece is great and making shots at 50 yards from a rest is easily done. The forward weight of the barrel helps to reduce muzzle jump and allows for fast and accurate close to medium range shooting. Many of these features were revolutionary at the time they were introduced, which is why the original Model 19 was so sought-after by lawmen. The nice thing about this gun, as opposed to others made today, is that it takes advantage of a heavy barrel.For my review of this gun, I decided to test several .357 Magnum loads from some great manufacturers. I tested the loads for accuracy at 25 yards from a rest. Groups are the average of three, five-shot groups. Velocity results are the average of five shots taken over my Oehler 35P chronograph.Hornady 125gr XTP———————————————————-1330fps, 2.5”Hornady 135gr Critical Duty FTX——————————————-1225fps, 1.9”Hornady 158gr XTP———————————————————–1212fps, 2.8”Black Hills 125gr JHP———————————————————-1424fps, 1.75”Black Hills 158gr JHP———————————————————-1200fps, 2.2”HSM 158gr JSP——————————————————————1210fps, 1.75”SIG SAUER 125gr FMJ———————————————————-1347fps, 2”This gun was a pleasure to shoot and the accuracy was great coming from the 4.25” barrel. The trigger broke clean and I was impressed with how easy it was to make follow-up shots. The Hornady loads all did very well and I wouldn’t hesitate to carry any of them. The best performer among the Hornady ammo was the Critical Defense 135gr FTX. This is a load that I have fired quite a bit in the past and I think that it is a great balance in power and recoil.The two Black Hills loads had much more snap than those from Hornady, but they made up for it with a bit more of a ring on the steel plates. I had no issues with accuracy at all with these two JHP loads and was very happy with how they felt in this wood-gripped gun.SIG SAUER’s 125gr FMJ is a great practice round that is both accurate and affordable. I ended up putting the highest volume of this particular round through this gun and it ran great. The nice thing about it is that you can train with the affordable FMJ variant and carry the V-Crown JHP, which is identical in muzzle velocity and felt recoil. The best performer among the Hornady ammo was the Critical Defense 135gr FTX. This is a load that I have fired quite a bit in the past and I think that it is a great balance in power and recoil.The last load I tested was the HSM 158gr JSP. This is a classic bullet type and is very similar to some of the original .357 Magnum loads. This load was very, very mild in terms of recoil, but it delivered great accuracy and velocity. It had the least muzzle jump of any load tested.I think that, at the end of the day, this is a gun for a very specific person. Many will shrug at it, but this is a solid gun that takes some of yesteryear and blends it with some of today’s features. Would I like to have a true, 100% replica without the internal lock and a fixed firing pin? Sure, who wouldn’t? However, the odds of finding a good condition example from the early years is very difficult. With this gun, you can have your vintage cake and eat it, too. I think that Smith & Wesson did a very good thing by bringing this classic back. If you wrap your hands around one at your local gun dealer, I’m sure you’ll agree with me.For more information on the Model 19 Classic, go to www.smith-wesson.com.
