It is a used 45. Was debating on 9 mm since I don't have a 9 mm 1911, however, its cheaper for me to shoot 45 since I'm used to it, plus bigger holes! Shot 20 of my bullseye reloads and it shot like a dream felt like a heavy 22 Magnum. Started started out at 21 feet and annihilated the lower left corner of the X ring. Send the target out to 25 yards and grouped it fairly well unsupported.I was a little rushed for time but I have a lot of practice yet to do. Shot some hardball out of it as well and it was very pleasant. Trigger is kind of sloppy but I will take care of that. And I will have to figure out the sighting system a little better over time.
