Just two words here about the rattle!I came in here just to say I have never scoffed at a 1911.
Not even the one I carried while in the Army.
The one that rattled because it had 12 billion rounds through it and was 15 years old
and passed on through several soldiers, drug through mud and dirt and water.
After all of that it never failed. Not once.
It still rattled though..........
9MM or 45 acp?The barrel itself didn't wear out,just the ramp part of the barrel. Customer service took care of it,only a 2week turnaround.
