recently there have been a lot of talk about reliability problems with 1911's,
clean frequently, magazine problems etc etc etc.
isn't the basic issue that the 1911 NOW is not what J Browning designed?
Today's 1911 is so tight that the top ends are 1" accurate at 25 yds, the middle priced 1911's are 2" at 25 yds.
I don't think that was in J Brownings mind for self defense for the soldiers.
with statistics stating that most civilian gun battles being at 25 feet or less then I would be happy with 2" accuracy 1911 at 25 feet - the BG is going down!
AM I RIGHT OR WRONG????????
Come to think of it - what gun is there that eats 45acp and is 2" accurate at 25 feet and is very very very reliable?
