    I just picked up this piece. What is the verdict on them in terms of reliability? I did some research but did not turn up a lot of info on them. I want to make this into a CCW but I've heard that 3" 1911s are very shaky except for a very, very few models. Is the ATI FX Titan good to go?

    Update: So far the mag that comes with it (ACT 7rd) is crap. When loaded up with 7 rounds, the slide cannot strip off the first round when returning to battery. Tried my 8rd Metalform and no problem.

    Thanks.

    Simple mag fix should be:
    Load the mag up and let it sit for a few days. In my experience, ACT mags are a decent mag to come with a gun. I personally wouldnt buy them after the fact because their the same money as wilson and cmc, but they do make a decent magazine

    I have a Titan and it feeds any mag I stick in there 7 or 8 - Kimber, ACT, Colt, whatever came with my RIA.

    Keep your eyes on the recoil spring assembly. That screw will back out. Loctite. Make sure the open end of the spring goes in first.
