    Both my Colts needed to be ported and polished with the barreled fitted to the slide better then it was. After that, they worked great. I have one that is somewhere around 30,000 rounds and still runs great.

    Colt series 80 Officers stainless, 2nd owner. No issues at all.

    Shoot it, clean it and shoot it again.

    Springfield Range Officer. Not one problem concerning reliability. Most of the MIM parts have been replaced with billet/bar stock pieces including the ignition system. For the most part, the only Springer parts are the frame, slide and barrel. Still not done with it, but it now fits my hands better and I'm more confident in the pistol. It ran 100% with the factory parts, but I chose this platform because of its history and the ability to truly make it your own. That's the beauty of a 1911.

    Put the sum of their works side by side, and the man you've elevated so highly is not in the same league, IMO.

    Of the 3, I'd put JMB way up on that list in the area of firearms design;

    Several of Browning's designs are still in production today. Some of his most notable designs include:
    Cartridges[edit source | editbeta]




    Firearms[edit source | editbeta]

    I'd be hard pressed to put anyone in the same league as John Browning. There have been many great firearms designers (which proves to me that God is definitely pro-gun) but I'm not sure any have risen to the level of JMB.

    ETA: There's a big difference between designing the entire gun/cartridge and making it work well and adding little tweaks and adjustments that, at most, keep it working.

    Believe half of what you see and none of what you hear. If you spoke with him, remember he is a salesman selling himself. Of course he is going to say anything and everything to make himself look good.

    Lippards 1911s are accurate, but are finicky little bitches. I have shot them and had them in pieces on my bench. Not impressed. Even less impressed when you consider the wait and cost.

    Go haze yourself.
