philippine made rock island
Just because the 1911 made in the Philippines jammed does not mean that it was because it was Philippine made. This is again simple stereotyping. I have seen many 1911 made by Armscor in the Philippines outperform many of the foreign made guns during shooting competitions. In fact most members of the shooting community I met in the Philippines prefer the locally made 1911s because they are reliable. They just gobble any bullet.

The longer I punished it with all kinds of ammunitions the better it gets. I quess about 1000 rounds passed already in this diminutive monster. I have no doubt it will fire when I to draw it in the most unlikely event.
