It finally makes sense. The reason SA 1911's are cheap is because they send the guns out unfinished. They do not check for fit, finish, or reliability. This way the lower price attract new buyers. They deal with the problems as they come up. Kind of reminds me of the American automotive industry. Fortunatly for them, historically 1911's aren't known for reliablity so they don't have to stretch themselves. Owners will make up excuses for them. What a great deal. It's like they can't do no wrong. It similar to a person in an abusive relationship. Sure he treats me bad, but I love him. It's probably my fault anyway.

Cleaner, funny, my Springfield has run just fine for the perhaps 10k rounds I've run through it in a year(though this month I'm chasing an ejection problem). Also, unless you have the mechanical aptitude of a slug, most 1911 problems can be easily fixed by the shooter(provided you are a shooter and not a poser). BTW, before you start ripping Springfield unfairly you might wanna go check the Kimber and Colt forums. Seems they have their share of problems as well.

Ha ha. PK, don't feed the trolls. I've had about 1000 rounds through my SA Champion now, had 2 FTF within the first 100 rounds of 230 gr. Hydrashoks. Since then, no problems. Also, fit and finish is just fine. Go figure.
