Hello P228



Took it straight to the range from the gun show and it worked flawlessly. I think from now
on I'll just buy German guns.

Which 1911 did you get rid of? Was it a GSR?

My GSR is as good as my 229 and 239....flawless!!!!

I got rid of a Colt Delta Elite. It would fail to extract about 3-4 times out of every mag, got tired of trying to mess with the extractor and just dumped it for the so far flawless P228.

And you'll find out that it is indeed flawless. I have over 50K rounds thru my P220 and it just keeps running mag after mag. It even digests ammo that stops up my friends Kimber 1911 and his HK USP 45! Boy, does that piss him off!

Ahh the venerable P228. The last gun I would ever get rid of. I love mine.

Was that a 10mm Delta Elite? Man I've never shot one of those that wasn't bitchy about ammo.

Yah it was 10mm Colt, it looked pretty. That's all the good things I can say about it.

DUH! Even the GLOCKS jam in Ten Millie! Ten mil is just not a round conducive to auto loading!

You're comparing apples and oranges, you fool.

That's what I like about the S&W 1911 . External S&W extractor With Wolff springs = reliability! ..............228 , 220 , 229 "Goodstuff"

I'm not so enamored with sig. Both 220's I've had experience with have failed to lockback the slide on the last round several times. One was prone to light primer strikes, which I would guess was part of the Gold Dot recall issue because of the prevalence of sig in LE use.

Also I think they are overly complicated pistols. During timed drills I've watched students fight the hammer drop lever thingy (or decocker) thinking they were hitting the mag release. Under a total stress situation I like the simplicity of the glock. Plus you can reholster your weapon in the same condition that you drew it before you fired. In other words you don't need to perform any additional manipulations to the pistol after the high stress of a shooting.

Yeah they're so damn complicated to use that Ernest Langdon used a SIG 220ST to win the CDP division at the Nationals in 2003 beating Rob Leatham who was shooting a 1911.
