Great time at the range with my GSG 1911 22

I finally got to take my GSG 1911 22 to the range after fixing a few problems. At my last outing my firing pin broke. I discovered this after completely field stripping the pistol.

I also read review about the accurizing kit from CWAccessories and thought I'd add that as well as a new Cylinder And Slide sear spring.

The firing pin wasn't that hard to replace. The accurizing kit was just replacement parts and the C&S sear spring did give me some problems. I couldn't get the hammer to set and lost my grip safety. After a few YouTube videos I figured it out.

The gun now has a 3.5 pound trigger and groups much better than it did.
I shot 200 rounds of Blazer without a problem. One hundred rounds of Aguila Extra 40 grain worked pretty well with only one failure to fire, and 100 rounds of CCI - SV just to see if they worked. They did. This gun is now 100% reliable and a blast to shoot.

Next modification: new adjustable sights.
