Does anyone have a 1911 that rattles when you shake it? I have a 1991 colt that rattles when you shake it with the mag out. It is a 100% reliable gun and has been for several thousands of rounds. It is stock except for a Ed Brown thumb safety. I carry this gun regularly and was wondering why does everyone seem to want to tighten the slide to frame fit on a piston meant for personal pertection? My 1991 rattled from day one and will put all of its rounds in a small group at point of aim well beyond what I think I'll ever have to use it. I also have a Les Bear TRS It is very reliable and accurate. Slide to Frame fit is scary tight but It came that way from the factory. I don't feel any safer with my TRS on my hip compared to my rattling 1991. Is a rattling gun OK? thanks for any replies.
