Problems with Sig 1911s have been documented from day 1. I had a gen 1 GSR which ran well. The extractor pin walked out on me and had to be replaced. Other than that it ran great but I sold it to find other projects.
They have gotten better since they got parts production in house for things like barrels, slides and frames but they are not as reliable as the Smiths IMHO.
