I don't know how to ask this question without incurring the wrath of those who believe Mr Browning's design is impossible to break, or getting responses like, "My second cousin's son's wife heard..." . Unlike myself who has only had my 1911s less than a year, are there those of you who have extensive use and experienced a parts breakage in your 1911 while YOU were shooting it? If so... -What broke; -What was the manufacturers brand and how old; -What is your best guess as to WHY (MIM, lack of lube, poor fitting, excessive rounds, a rat was sleeping in the barrel). As a FNG to the 1911, I am drawn to all the super-superior kyptonite diamond encrested aftermarket parts, partly just because I like to play with my toys, and partly because I am dumb enough to be taken in by advertising. So, dropping my guard and my pants to trust what you guys who worked with JMB, advising him what to do, what have you to say in your experiences and your recommendations as to what to replace with my vast fortune working at McDonalds?
