Gentlemen: I sincerely need and value your professional opinion on a reliablity test just ran on th 1911 v/s the Glock. I also ran this test on quite a few other handguns. After you read and evalute my test let me know if you yourself think that it is valid. What follows is the test.
I recently test fired the 1911 and the Glock both with defective ammo (high primers) and with empty cases that also had high primers. Many other pistols were also tested with empty cases and high primers only not with loaded ammo.
Yes I know that performing the 1911 v/s Glock test is extremely dangerous with live ammo. But in the interest of science I wanted to know if under extreme circustances the two pistols in question would function and fire with ammo that would have weak primers or very hard primers.
The 1911 came through with flying colors firing all of the defective ammo and all of the empty cases that had only been loaded with high primers.
The Glock .45 along with two 9mm Glocks failed 100 per cent to fire either the defective ammo or the empty high primed cases.
My question to you is this. I believe this proves that the 1911 has the superior ignition system over the Glock. Also that the 1911 can be relied upon to ignite all commercial and military ammo along with some reloads that may have not had their primers bottomed out when seating them.
The Glock on the other hand must have the proper ammo to work which does not include all military and commercial ammo. I base this statement on some info that I received from other people that had their Glocks misfire with both commercial and military ammo.
What do you all think. Were my tests valid and have they proved that that the Glock has a weak ignition system as compared to the 1911?
Your comments will be greatly appreciated.
Thank you very much. W.R.
