Have The Atp Issues Been Worked Out?
Posted 30 December 2011 - 10:24 PM
Waiting to buy an ATP for winter time training for USPSA and IDPA until the bugs have been worked out.
Or would I be better off buying a M1911 MK III PTP?
Also, is there a 2011 style M1911 coming out soon?

Regarding a MKIII vs ATP both are great guns. I have the ATP and the MKIV (essentially the same gun as the MKIII) . I would purchase based upon the features you would like for training. Regarding the two side by side, the MK seems more solid and has a crisper blow back. The ATP is simpler with regard to fire control and beak down. The MK is a single stack and has fewer rounds (14) while the ATP is double stack (23).
I like the adjustable back strap on the ATP, however you can also change the grips on the MK series to real steel aftermarket grips.
The ATP comes with a metal outer barrel but there is a KWA metal out barrel available for the MK series. Whatever you decide I am sure you will like it. Please let us know which way you go!
