Hey, I'm only posting to get a wide array of experiences for some personal research. Last weekend I challenged my brother (a die hard 1911 fan) to a 500 round challenge. Clean guns, and premium ammunition. I was shooting my Glock 22 (Stock) and he was shooting a Colt Government model 1911 (stock). We wanted to see who had the most malfunctions, which was him. At the end I had zero malfunctions....if you count a shell ejecting at my face then I had 1. He had 21 by the end. Often, the last round of his magazine would stove pipe before chambering. the rest of his were stove pipes of empty casings. He was upset because he consistently told me that a 1911 is a much more reliable carry gun. However, I believe our small challenge proved otherwise. Has anyone had similar experiences? I know people who take their 1911's to gunsmiths and have mechanical upgrades made. However, I dont believe I have seen a stock 1911 run reliably for anyone.
