Re: reliability?? fullsize 9 or 3 inch 45
Impossible to answer without looking at specific guns. I have a Colt Defender and it's 100% reliable. I also have a Taurus 9mm 1911 and once I fixed a few small issues it's 100% reliable as well. Is every 3" 1911 reliable? Is every 5" 9mm 1911 reliable? Who knows...
