After talking to a few people I found out why it doesn't accept the HP rounds.
From what I was told because the original 1911s were for the service. Due to Geniva convention it's not supposed to accept HP rounds because it isn't as "humane" as a standard fmj.
Sounds about right but could be a buncha smoke.
But considering all the hoopla and the work, it's not worth it to me. Fmj's are plenty enough to do the job.
Thanks for the input!

not true! talk to some different people as thes don't know what they are talking about. the feed ramp and throat make the difference in the type of ammo it will feed. there are many 1911's that use JHP ammo with no problems, i have two.

Don't let your "friends" talk you out of loving your new toy. Go shoot that thing. The only thing wrong with a 1911 is... even the cheap ones are expensive.
