Preferred 1911 Mag for 2700 Matches

Post by 230Ball on 9/14/2013, 9:10 pm

First topic message reminder :

What's your favorite (i.e. reliable) 1911 magazine?
I'm re-entering bullseye comp after nearly two decades and remember that the weakest link with the 1911 was the magazine.  Seems like every string (back then) had an alibi.
I still have my 1911 wad and ball guns which will be forever timeless, but a total smorgasbord of magazines laying around after all of these years.  What's the latest in technology, as well as your favorites?

I edited my post, as you answered, IMO no, once the command to load is given, gun must remain in the shooters hand if loaded, guns placed on the bench must be unloaded and ECI put in place, but to shoot 4 and drop mag and insert new mag doesn't require you to lay the gun down

I just looked through the rule book. The only thing described about firearms is that they must be pointed safely downrange. I've had Range Officers ask shooters to bench loaded weapons while a problem is taken care on the firing line.
Example: You forget to put your ear muffs on. The line starts firing SF match. You put loaded pistol on bench pointed down range. You put on your ear muffs and re-grasp pistol. All safely accomplished and according to the rules.

I think the BIGGEST range violation is seeing shooters attempt to clear a chamber on a stuck round. They almost always end up pointing the pistol down the firing line (right handed shooter points pistol to left).

After 4th shot (5th round is in chamber) put on thumb safety and pull out magazine and reload next 5 shots. This alleviates flier from loading 1st round from magazine into chamber (typical fliers are 1st and and last round from magazine). This is how experienced Ransom Rest users get NICE groups as well!!!!!

I recall a post here a long time ago about a HM dude who loaded his single prize mag with one hand while keeping his gun grip intact.

In BE shooting there is no rule prohibiting putting the gun on the bench while loaded.  In International it is prohibited.  That being said, you can load the .45 magazine with one hand with only a little training, by laying it on the bench and rolling the round into the top with your thumb.
