80%? Wow I would never carry much less own a gun that unreliable. I expect my 1911s to be as
reliable as my polymer guns...... and they areI agree. Let's be honest, when there is a

Of course the Model 15 is not ramped, either.Come to think of it neither is mine. :rolleyes: Of
course I thought that by virtue of this being the 1911 section it might have actually gone

I have a CCO (Alloy frame). It has a ramped barrel, as does my PM-7. No need to worry about
dinging anything. The CCO sees nothing but Wilson Combat mags (plastic follower) so no issue
there. Even the...

It's been a while, but I don't seem to recall waiting very long for my grips from them, I do
recall they exceeded expectations. I would guess that they give the 14 day window in case they

None of the 1911's you mentioned come with a written accuracy guarantee of 1" or less at 25
yds. My CQB happens to shoot tighter groups than the guarantee with my handloads. And (unlike
the 1911's you...

I can think of no scenario where exceeding max load recommendations for a "plinking" load seems
like a good idea. Have you tried a 1.16 OAL with your setup? While CZ does reputedly have a

I have not used S&W for repair on vintage revolvers in years. They will likely render the older
guns to a modern hybrid. I use Cylinder & Slide for custom work. he said. Cylinder & Slide
would be my ...

You're correct about tightly-fitted 1911's. You can have it both ways....provided you're
willing to pay for a hand-fitted, custom model. The Wilson CQB is up to around $3,000.00 now &
was $1,800.00 wh...

Way too much BS floating around about 1911s.Tight 1911s are fine. Yes, you can have it both
ways (see: Les Baer, STI, Springfield Armory or any other builder of match grade 1911s that
work just fine.)...
Posted in thread: Kimber or colt? on 09-06-2015 at 12:05 AM
Of the two - Colt. Why? Colt has a better reputation for cutomer care and a warranty longer
than a year. Other under $1500 railed 1911s: Hey, it ain't a TRP ;)How about a Sig? lot of
options out t...
