Hi I'm new to the 1911 pistols and I want to know if 1911 pistols are reliable right out of box since I dont want to customise my pistol because I need it only for home and personal defence and not for competitions. I just keep hearing that 1911's are not reliable unless you customise them extensively and what's the point of that??? I dont want to turn to Glock since I shoot 1911's better, but reliability counts more. So please let me know what's the big deal on customising 1911 pistols. I'm writing from Finland. P.S. Comparing Norinco to SW1911, which do you recommend.
