I've heard both, that 1911 gov' style was designed only to eat ball ammo, not all the JHP, or wadcutter ect. or that it will shoot anything. personally, i bought a taurus PT1911, just your standard 1911, due to ammo shortages ive also fired whatever i could get ahold of. and ive NEVER had a misfire, squib round, double feed jam or malfunction with my 1911 or the ammo ive fed it since the day i bought it 1 year and some odd months, ive shot over 2000 rounds out of it!
praise John Moses Browning for such an awsome weapon!!!
BTW, if you choose a taurus, the follower on the factory mags wears down after about 300 rounds, chip mccormick makes a very high quality replacement
