Default Range report on Jericho 941 and Springfield 1911

My two newest acquisitions: Jericho / Magnum Research 941 Baby Eagle compact; Springfield 1911 Milspec

Jericho: ran through 150 rounds of various factory loads. One failure to feed with a Federal 115 gr +p+ jhp. Iím going to attribute that to an ammo issue, since all the other rounds it fed and ejected well. It seemed to really like Hornady critical duty 135 gr. +p flex tip. This is a VERY accurate pistol. In my opinion, this is every bit as nice as a SIG p229, at almost half the price.

Springfield Milspec 1911: fired 200 rounds of FMJ and JHP. Had one failure to go into battery on the last round in a Colt 8 round mag. All the other rounds ejected and fed perfectly. Last round failure might be a mag issue.

All in all Iím very pleased with these two handguns. They are Ďbudgetí type pistols that perform very well. I recommend both of these, especially the Jericho.

While there is no doubt about the quality of the Springfield,I never had the chance to try a Jericho up until a few weeks ago and while I didn't perform a lenghty test(only a few clips),I must say I was positively impressed.
My daughter is looking to buy a 9mm and the Jericho definitely is one I will recommend to her(she finds the 1911 platform unconfortable for her smallish hands!).

I recommend the Jericho / Baby Eagle. Check to make sure the trigger reach is acceptable. If itís too long, you can get the Jericho with a frame safety for cocked and locked condition.
