Of course that was nearly 8 years ago, they probably go for 1k now...

My Citidel 1911 was just under $500. Lowered and enlarged ejection port, skeletonized trigger and hammer, polished feed ramp and large mag well. All that stuff came standard. Not a single malfunction. Way over 1000 rounds through it. Lots of different bullets and loads. I have owned a lot of different types of pistols. Nothing compares to a 1911! And I don't even have an expensive one. I had a Para Ordinance that gave me trouble. But I really think it was the double stack magazines.

Thier okay, I prefer a DA pistol myself. The main thing I've been hearing lately is the new Springfields are having a some trouble feeding anything but hardball ammo. Some hollow points be jamming every shot.

I own two Springfields, a Loaded and a GI. I've fed them semi wadcutters, FMJ, hollow points and extreme shock EPR... never had a malfunction.

Good deal, I know of two new out of the box EMP's that won't feed hollowpoints at all, unless thier owners were fibbing when they asked for help on other gun forums. One of them is a very good friend, and the gun was going to be sent back to the factory recently. However, I am by no means a Springfield or 1911 authority, so please feel free to disreguard my comment as false if you like.

Mine are the full size 5" barrel, I don't have any experience with the EMP's yet.
Sorry, I didn't know we were talking about the EMP

I have a dozen or more 1911's and only one ever had any issues. An old Norinco. It wasn't anything that couldn't be resolved for next to nothing. Sorry you feel you need to miss out on one of the greatest pistol platforms ever created.
