The article is about a Bob Marvel 1911 pistol being used under combat conditions. My Bob Marvel pistol came with two 10-shot targets tested at 50 yards from a Ransom Rest. The largest group is just under 1.4 inches.
I'm glad I asked then. I always like to get a second opinion and verify what I hear.

That makes sense regarding the labor rate. It also explains why some Philippino and Turkish made 1911s are so inexpensive. I wish I could afford a 1911 that would support our economy, but my only options in an American made 1911 are used.
