    I’ve seen you dabbling in that appropriate forum.

    It's rapidly becoming one of my favorites. :-) Lots of lurking.

    I live where it gets really cold w/lots of snow, sometimes for 6 months of the year.
    My favorite Colt is a stock WW1 Belleau Wood Commemorative, 230gr ball in
    Wilson 7rd mag, it has never malfunctioned.

    A good 1911 will run and run and run, all they need is lube.
    That has been my experience. Mine is going on two years since being broken down and cleaned.. and it does get shot I'm just outta .38 Super Auto right now. Gotta convert the reloader from 9mm to super some time when I have time.. But right now I'm having fun with my new SIG P-210 American so 9mm it is !

    Even the low-end ones can carry high worry-free mileage if they are built to spec. That's the key: built to spec. If it is, they have to run. It's a machine. It doesn't have a choice.

    Yup, mine's a Colt so it seems well built so far, probably 10,000 rounds give or take.
