I don't hate Yeager even though he spews opinion more than fact. The reality is that we are here talking about him or reading about him and he is getting free advertising so long as he creates a stir on youtube GT and other sights.
A real fighter would say something like a gun is a tool and as long as it works, is tough, effective, I dont care which one I have.
1911's are good and I think that the majority of issues are user related in one way or another. I have owned a few low-mid range 1911's, and did have problems with the first one I bought. I am certain that the problems were the user. I don't have one now because I just wouldn't use it.
To the OP, if you are serious about a 1911 watch this video.
