this poll is about MIM (metal injection molding) parts.
when MIM parts first started being used primarily in the 1911s there were all kinds of issues with them.
today MIM parts are everywhere and in just about everything made in one form or another. damn nere as prevailant as that other material from satan --plastic!
a year or two ago even LMT started using MIM in their gas keys. say what you will about MIM but i know for a fact LMT tested that part very seriously before they went to it.
i have quite a few MIM parts in a couple of my 1911s mostly S&W and colt and so far--they have been trouble free. (knock on wood).
i suspect that MIM process are at least some what improved from past disasterous attempts.
given past problems with MIM--how do you feel about MIM today?
