Any firearm will jam if not properly cared for.
As far as competition, and this is personal observation, there are other manufacturers wares that could sustain competition better than the American Classic.

1911's are combat and competition proven, and as stated by danf_fl, the performance of any firearm depends on care and maintenance. Magazines are a big factor in how a semi-auto performs. Avoid cheap "gun show specials," and stick with major after market brands.

Another factor is ammunition, but most 1911's with quality magazines will feed most ammo.

Once upon a time, the 1911 was king of the hill in competition, and some major league shooters still use them.
