The Super Hawg met or exceeded my expectations. From the ambidexterous safety, skeletonized trigger & hammer; ramped, match barrel; increased sight radius (long slide) ;luminous front sight; non=glare matte finish; crisp, consistent trigger to it's natural point & feel (not to mention its stunning appearance) the pistol left little to be desired.

I fired my first five rounds sitting, from a bag rest at 10 yards. The rounds all over-lapped and produced an irregular, 1.25 inch hole. I reloaded and reprduced a similar but different shaped 5 round hole on another target, confirming the irregularity was all mine.

The slide operated like silk, returning to battery lock-up everytime; requiring little, if any, sight adjustment to reaquire. The grip texture and fore & aft frame stippling assured positive grip at all times during the shoot.

I am 6'3" and have a large (but not huge) frame. so the grip width of the hi-cap was perfect for me and perhaps the 8+1 Super Hawg width would better fit a smaller hand. Nevertheless, I'm sure it too, would perform just as well.

Disassembly & cleaning was very easy with no surprises.

I have owned a number of 1911's and have shot on Navy pistol team events so I have some commonality of experirnce with most shooters. I believe you will be thoroughly pleased with the Super Hawg whether the single or double stack is your choice. It is truly a fine pistol that will make you smile when you handle and shoot it!
