Big, this is just an idle observation on my part, but there has been a rash of postings at this site and others where newbies report all of the shortcomings and problems with their new 1911s. If you are for real and your experience is real, then that is too bad. You should just take the gun back and get another one or get your money back. That is how it works. On the other hand, if you are a troll and just tryin' to get on peoples' nerves. thank you for your one post. Now go elsewhere to cause someone else problems.
