That's a tough one. I have a Colt new series 70 that will feed empty cases!! It has looser tolerances than most, which would help with coping with dirt It also has a new barrel throat profile that they claim increases reliability, seems to work as it's never failed to feed anything.ZOID ZODIAN said:Okay, you 1911 fans, if I just landed in my UFO and wanted to buy the most reliable 1911 made, which one would I buy?
My reliability criteria:
1. Ability to feed hollow points
2. Ability to work even when fouled
scubadvr said:Zoid, sorry to change direction but I purchased an Auto Ordnance 1911 and although not disappointed I am not impressed. It jams frequently. I purchased some Wilson Combat mags, hope that helps clear it up.
Thinking about buying a Springfield mil spec, what do you think? Jack
My first 1911, a SA loaded, would feed anything. But it shot low and the parts fit was less than I expected. The shooting low was a common condition that year.bigblock said:I give the springfield a pass but would need a little work.
I have a New Colt 70 Series and it is great and it needed $6 worht of parts to make it work out of the Box. It is luck of the draw and the sum of the parts used to build your pistol. Most of the time you get what you pay for.
