Actually it would just make it worse. Cartridges that have a shorter OAL than .45 ACP (.40 S&W, .357 Sig, 9x19) tend to be less reliable in 1911s.t-tac said:I know the Ultra Compact 1911's suffer alittle in reliability due to the shortning of the slide. Which steals from Peter to pay Paul.
I was wondering if the new .45 Gap ammo might help this out?
It's a Shorter round and probably has a faster recoil pluse.
Maybe, if the gun was designed for that cartridge. A 1911 isn't. It is designed for a .45 ACP, and works well with cartridges of that overall length or close to it. Using shorter cartridges in that design just makes it less reliable, on average. If you built a gun from scratch for .45 Glock, that would be a different story. But in a 1911, it would be hard to get it to feed reliably because of the short OAL.t-tac said:I would think the shorter round would be perfect for the shorter guns. better cycling.
