The surplus 1911a1s save the tax payer $$ and they are MUCH more likely to go bang when you need it than anything that can be commercial bought IMHO.
From what I saw, they functioned about as well as any good 1911. That means that most did quite well (once properly lubed for the hot/dry conditions) and one went down hard (i.e. it had to go back to the smith).

Tam, I don't know why the surname is so popular with lawyer types. Perhaps because it has a certain irony to it.
