Re: Why Do People Say 1911's Suck?
I have to get in on this one I started out as a wheelgunner a long time ago ,but once I got my first 1911 there has always been at least one in the safe. Most people that talk down on them have either ,never shot one that works properly ,or they were never shown the right way to control one. In the late 70's and early 80's you had to buy a colt and have it worked over, I used to buy a $400 colt and put $600 in custom work and parts to have a gun that Kimber ,Colt ,Springfield, and many others give you out of the box today. My new favorite 1911 at this time is a Commander sized Dan Wesson Classic Bobtail. It is without a doubt the best factory pistol that I have bought. I have probably shot 2000 round through it and the only jam it had was a bad primer. The trigger pull is set at 3 3/4 pounds from the factory,it has yellow night sites on the rear and green up front, the fit and finish is perfect. Its a little heavy for everyday carry since it is all stainless and weighs in at 39 oz.. I have tried the Spingfield XDin 45 and the XDM in 9mm bothe excellent guns but I don't care for polymer even though they weigh a lot less to begin with stuff 14 rounds of 45 acp in one and notice the change. Sorry for the long winde post and large pics but 1911's Don't Suck
