I bought a SA stainless milspec 1911 about seven years ago. It now has 6065 trouble free rounds through it. I did have to change mag springs at about a 3000 round count. It feeds FMJ and JHP equally well. For the money you have to spend you could get a higher-end Springer but for my needs the milspec works well (range and house gun). I tried carrying it but at least for me it is too long in the grip and too heavy for a carry pistol (I prefer an alloy framed pistol for that use). Good luck.
Merry Christmas- oldandslow
