Lucky Guy,
Go with the full sized frames on the 1911's, Big hands + little frame = problems.

I was in my favorite gun shop the other day when a customer who had recently purchased his first 1911 type hand gun (Short framed, 3" barrel) came in complaining that the magazine would not fall free when pushing the mag. release button. After the sales person tried 8-10 times with no malfunctions, he asked the customer to demonstrate how he did it. It turns out that the meaty lower part of his hand slightly overlapped the magazine opening and not let it fall free.
