I am talking about a level of unreliability that doesn't even make it to 20 rounds without jamming!
One Jampion I had couldn't run through a magazine without a ftf or fte. Whether I was using SA factory, Colt, McCormick, or Wilson (The BEST).
The second one would have a failure rate of 5 or 6 out of 50.
The others were nearly as bad.
Polish, ramp, throat, tune extractor and even install slightly longer ejector....none of the "go-to" fixes worked.
The Champion is NOT a good execution of the 1911. Remember...this is just a reworking of Auto Ordinance's "Pitbull" model (that sucked too) of sticking an Officer slide on a full size frame.
