I carry my Colt cocked and locked you know that pull can't be more than 3 lbs. But that Sig is one reliable gun from everything i have heard and read.
    In Arizona I used to carry my Colt Commanders cocked and locked in the small of my back. But too many times when removing it, I found the safety had worked itself off. That was one of the reasons I moved to the Sig. Granted the Sig's first double action trigger pull was tougher, I got over that by cocking it first and always shooting single action. Since I always used to carry a Ruger Super Blackhawk prior to semi-autos it didn't bother me.

I've owned 7 Colt .45s and the only gun out of the box that would feed all brands of .45 auto was a Sig Sauer 220.

    Wilson Combat (or Nighthawk, or Les Baer, or Ed Brown, or Dan Wesson, Novak, etc.) does not build 1911s to make them run on HP ammo. Their main breadwinner is not making pistols that should be sent back to the manufacturer as defective work with HP ammo, but making semi-custom 1911 with custom features that people are going to pay thousands of dollars for. Nobody is sending their $300 RIA 1911 to Wilson to make it run HP ammo. Why? Because it does so out of the box. Same as the Springfield Armory Mil-Spec, or just about any other bottom of the line base model 1911. Bank when Colt was the only company in the 1911 game people who wanted trigger jobs, extended safeties, beavertail grip safety fitting, refinishing, checkering, sent their guns to places like Wilson Combat.

    Expanding on your example of Wilson combat, they also modify shotguns too. Does this mean that unless you send your shotgun to Wilson Combat you shouldn't expect it to reliably feed 2 3/4 inch shotgun shells? Of course not, though you said that Wilson Combat would not exist without that need. They'll be more than willing to sell you a $350 Remington 870 with $1000 worth or enhancements, and that's just their base model.

Before you answer ask yourself why you would i carry anything less than 230 grain.

    You should move up to something more modern then, Federal HST or Winchester Ranger.

    We can go back and forth on this for days and neither one of us are going to change the other's mind. And anyone else reading this thread with a decent firearms background also know how they approach this situation. And people without experience but thinking of buying a Colt and stoking it with hollow points can either follow my suggestion that they trust no hollow point until actually shooting 4 or 5 clips and verifying that the rounds are reliable, or taking your recommendation that such steps are unnecessary. It is their choice.

    GENTLEMEN,

    OF ALL THE FORUMS HERE, I WILL NOT TOLERATE ARMCHAIR GUNSMITHING!!!

    FYI, boys, semi-automatic handguns are fed by MAGAZINES! NOT "CLIPS". The M1 Garand is a good example, for your study, of being "clip" fed.

    You tax my patience.

    I am a VERY BUSY Firearms Instructor and a died-in-the-wool 1911 curmudgeon. I KNOW what it takes to make ANY 1911 run ANY ammo.

    DESIST IN THIS CRAP, NOW!

    This is a "Post Pics of your Gun" thread.

    If I see one more post about what gun will run what and what is and should be and what was in the 1911 world, I will close this thread and mete out terrible consequences for him who forces me to do so.

    Am I clear?

    And I might just switch you OFF.


    JackH, since you have made it clear that you are unable to control yourself in a reasonable and responsible fashion on this thread, I urge you to refrain from posting any further comments on it.

    Should you choose not to heed this advice, and continue in your inflammatory course, I will be forced to take action, based upon your refusal.

    Am I clear, now?

    I mean to keep this thread open. I mean to keep this thread free of the opinions of those who do not understand guns. I mean to keep this thread as it was intended, "Post a pic of your gun".

    My statement was that (aside from super tight fitting customs like Les Baer, etc that require a break in period) any 1911 out of the box should reliably feed and fire any current factory hollow point ammunition. If your 1911 continually has issues with feeding hollow point ammunition, then the issue is with that particular 1911 and does not mean that all 1911s don't feed it reliably without modification. Verifying your weapon is reliable will whatever ammunition you choose to carry with it is besides the point and completely unrelated to the original point I was making. You should be verifying that your weapon functions properly whether its a 1911, Glock, HK, SW, Sig or anything else. Your statement seemed to imply "Don't bet your life on a 1911 loaded with hollow points".
    Time to get this thread back on topic.
