Thank you for the rep.
They make a recoil buffer pad for 1911's. We ran them in our commander framed pieces. The commanders seem to have a lot of bark from the short barrel.
You may need a bit more spring (recoil) in your gun. Easy fix's all around.
I have (I think) a commander length guide rod if you feel yous is to damaged. Free if you really need it.
I had a great visit!!! Thank you for coming in!! I so enjoy talking guns with nice people and you are among the nicest!!!
I can't wait to talk to Nicole about meeting you, also. I have a feeling she wants kids BUT I won't know if I don't ask!!!! I will let you know how it turns out.
