I have my first 1911, didn't go looking for it but got it in a trade. After taking it apart and giving it a good clean and lube I spent some range time with it. On this site I have seen just about every hand gun bashed, except the 1911. It must be because of history because I am not impressed. Field stripping it is a pain, it's heavy and feels "clunky". I don't get why so many folks will bash Glocks but the 1911 platform seems to be off limits. Give me a Glock or Ruger SRc any day, (heck I like my commie block CZ52 better) the 1911 will be looking for a new home.
