Acquired this gun on a trade. Circa 1986. It's a 6+1 stainless 1911 with a partial grip. The gun is a handful, and after 300 rounds, I'm able to keep it into an 8" circle and make a somewhat ragged hole. Not like my Ed Brown which can make a single hole, but good enough.

It does not tolerate limp wristing one bit. The triple recoil spring is tight. The slide makes this top heavy and handling this gun takes some practice.

It's not a laser shooter out of the box but it rewards you after you learn to handle it.

Factory mags are pretty darn tight, also.

Overall, I have become a fan of it. But I'll still favor a Glock 36 over it.

Very cool gun. I'm guessing by it's age it's a first generation. Only gripe you cant get nonfactory grips that I know of.

JEALOUS!!! Had a blue one, was my edc for a few years untill I needed money and it was taht or the G17, needless to say, it was th Detonics that was sold, I had {achmayer grips on mine and used 7 round brand x 1911 mags, they hung out a littel but worked fine. The gun lover the old Speer flying ashtray's, which in my mind is still the best 45 ACP round ever.

I've only seen blued models early production. Is that stainless, nickel or hardchromed? Appears to be in fantastic condition. In the 70's thru 80's cut down production guns became popular. Detonics was one of the first full bore micro production guns. A piece of American history.

Stainless. It is practically new. It was owned by a gunsmith.

Back then they used captured triple springs. The slide is tight. I probably need to put about 1000 rounds to make it feel loose.

How reliable was your Detonics? I find mine is more reliable with Wilson Magazines instead of Factory Detonics.
