your question is incomplete. Do you mean pros and cons for the SA full size vs other brand full size? vs compact? vs other similar non 1911 autos like the S&W 4506? SA makes varying levels of quality 1911's. On the lower end of the quality, it is just the fit and finsh that is not as good as some other brands, the guns still function well. My loaded 45 would have been fine for defensive use as it was right out of the box. That being said, it lacked accuracey for PPC matches. You could hold em all in the black easily enough, but the X count would be low, like in teh 20's, where as my revovler is in the 20's, and my reworked SA 45 is in the high 30's to low 40's. for everything there is a purpose. for defensive use I would rather the gun be a little too loose than too tight. Hey, at 21 feet, I KNOW I will hit regardless of if the gun is a little loose or not. What I would not want is a gun to not close, or fail other wise because it was too tight and a piece of debris got somewhere it should not have.Originally posted by piccolo-san:
