Re: A really big 1911 question
[QUOTE=40CalJoe;533445] I doubt any 1911 could sustain the torture test this Glock 21 was put through and still work. Right now, my 1911 is at Springfield after 250 rounds. All three of my Glocks have about 5000 rounds each on them and have never had anything done to them except cleaning.
Torture tests are usually just a few guns, and the ones that fail, are rarely written about.... regardless if they're Glocks or 1911's. I have 7 1911's and NONE of them have ever been back to their respective makers. a couple of them have probably more than 10,000 trouble-free rounds through them (cleaned periodically, and replaced a few springs), and the others between 2000 and 4000 rounds. Anyone can get a "bad" gun, and it's not restricted to any one brand. Maybe I've been very lucky.... but I've been very happy with my 1911's..... and I do NOT dislike Glocks, they just feel really uncomfortable in my hands.
