It's like driving a 65 fast back mustang and a built Shelby. And no you don't need extreme accuracy for a carry pistol, but if you have the dough go for it. You will have a gun that will run as good as any sloppy gun. Sheech!!
you get one dirty with south texas red dirt get it a little wet and those super tight guns stop like a pole axed ox. its a big reason i got rid of my custom 1911. couldnt take it outside work all day with it in the dust and dirt sitting in a holster and still have it function.
my colt 1911 series 70 is unaffeted by such conditions.
like i said its my opinion. i base it off experience with such guns. i believe that they are mostly smoke and mirrors paying premium price for a gun that doesnt run any better than a off the shelf gun.
if you want one because they are well crafted thats great. go for it.
