This is my late grandfather's custom Charles Daly target 1911 that I inherited and recently got to bring home.

Nice gun!

RIP to your grandfather. A little to much going on there for me with the sight and all but I have not (yet) gotten into pistol shooting like that. Was he pretty accurate with it?

Yes, he was very fast with it as far as consecutive hits. Im not as good with it, but Im definitely faster with this gun than any other Ive shot. The gun is built with some very high quality parts so it has an ultra light trigger and very light recoil. At the range, its nothing to drop 12 inch drop plate targets at 1 per second with it at 25yds. Basically you could line up 8 people and shoot them all in the face in less than 8 seconds...... lmao

I assume that sight was to help him because of failing vision...?

Or did he actually shoot competition?

He didnt shoot competition, just a hobby shooter. He was a bit of a gun connessieur and owned a gun shop in my home town. The laser dot sight is far better than iron sights for target shooting.
