Was at a gun shop today and saw a lightweight champion that drew my attention. The frame was OD green, and the slide was black. The grips were thin black rubber. Novak night sights. This thing looked nice. I asked to see it and the man said sure. I can't believe how good this thing felt in my hand. Does anyone have any experience with one of these. For $690, I would like to hear some opinions. Thanks.

OK. Now all I have to do is wait till the end of March when I get my BONUS check, and that gun is mine.

The Champion I owned about 8-10 years ago was a POS. I own 3 Springfields & carry their Ultra Compact so I have no axe to grind. Could be they've fixed their problems now, for all I know.

Well, I shot it today and all I can say is DAAAAAYYYYYUUUMMMM!!!!! This this is very accurate. Had only 2 failures to go into battery, but it was my grandfather who was shooting and I believe he was limp wristing it. But then again he is 85 years old. First shot it at 7yards (21feet), then at 15 yards (45 feet). It shoots POA every time. I was thinking about changing the grips, but after shooting it so well, the grips are staying put. Why mess with a good thing? I only got to shoot about 50 rounds of WWB 230grn. FMJ, then had to leave so I could take my beloved wife to work. But those 50 rounds were fantastic. Also, the mags used were the stock mags that came with the gun. I feel that this gun is the best I have ever owned. I may have to wait a few years before buying another, but it is worth it.

Howdy, I replied to one of your posts at 1911forum or m1911 (I had the MC Op), but I meant to ask where you picked it up from? I'm also in Texas and that seems like a pretty good price.
