The 41 Avenger hands down is the biggest pain in my arse........


You have to use 170 gr bullets which are small to handle, short bottle neck case and you need to heavy crimp the bullet to keep it from setting back into the case during feeding from the magazine to chamber, the slide really moves under recoil with full power loads.

Took me a LOT of experimenting before I got all the little details worked out to produce reliable rounds, then I went and did a really really stupid thing, I sold the 1911 the barrel was fitted to!!!!!!!! : (

So now I have good ammo but no pistol to shoot it in, need to pick up a decent used 1911 and fit the barrel to it was I have a shooter.


41 Mags rule, Baers rock!
