STI The Spartan V 8+1 45ACP 5.11"
by Daniel C Date Added: Thursday 28 June, 2012
Shipped and arrived at my FFL 3 days later. After cleaning off the packing lube, took this baby to the range and put 150 rds through it. The Spartan performed flawlessly! Ate JHP and FMJ without a hiccup. Very accurate over all distances. (I fired from 5 yds to 25yds with no sight adjustment necessary) No issues with the factory mag.(guess I got a good one, although I picked up a couple of Wilson Combat mags as well) This is a good looking 1911. I liked the parkerized finish more than I thought I would. But you have to season it with a good soak in high quality gun oil just like you would an old iron frying pan. The price is low enough that you can afford to customize it if you like. All in all, this is a terrific 1911 at a great price!
