Conceal carry weapon question.for you

Would you buy a pistol for conceal carry if its manufacturer had made the statement " Its normal to have a few malfunctions until you have run acouple hundred rounds thru it"

Re: Conceal carry weapon question.for you

The people who build the gun I shoot don't say that.

But.........yes.........I can understand the "run in" process theory. Springs, especially, can take a few cycles to get feeling happy. Also, frictional surfaces can take some time to get "slicked up" and running smoothly.

No harm in putting a few hundred downrange before trusting your life to a new gun.

No. If they know that they have a product that has a manufacturing issue that requires the owner to address then they should fire a couple hundread rounds through the gun before they release it to the market place. If this is your CCW you are probably going to do a lot of practice shooting with it. But that statement by the maker, well, that just does not envoke confidence in a product that someone is going to rely on in a critical situation.

Good night Chesty, wherever you are......

Re: Conceal carry weapon question.for you

No but I would buy one for plinking.Perhaps this is related to a prior post I made about a cheap semi auto handgun.I own a Glock 21 and my wife has a SW 9VE.I am well aware of the fact that certain folks don't care for the SW 9VE however this gun has performed flawlessly with all brands of ammo as does the Glock 21.If and when the money comes I would like to get a Cabot 1911.At this point it is too rich for my blood.I know the people that make them.Attention to detail is bar none.

Re: Conceal carry weapon question.for you

The reason i posted this is a customer who had purchased a springfield micro gi 1911 with 3 inch barrel was having some "stovepipe" issues and thats what they told him.. I "had" been wanting to buy that gun for c.c.

Re: Conceal carry weapon question.for you

The only handgun that needed broken in was the recent Sig 226 I was issued. The mag springs were super tight. The first 3 mags were problematic, but after that I did not have any problems.

Never had a problem with a Glock, H&K, Beretta, or S&W.

No, I would not buy it.

If you're looking for something on a 1911 platform with 3" barrel I recommend a Colt New Agent. I looked hard at the Kimbers but I couldn't justify the higher price with the complaints on failures to feed.

Re: Conceal carry weapon question.for you

I saw the Cabots in person at Butler a few weeks ago. The guy working the booth was a shooter from the TV show "Top Gun". WOW, they are nice. A $10000.00 1911? drooling. Anyhow, I was not comfortable carrying my alloy Springfield untill we ran a lot of rounds thru it, due to the barrel mounted feed ramp. It had a few hiccups early on, but it smoothed out. JMB did not plan on 3" barrels or alloy frames.
