Not a damn clue. I shoot with too many people to know what everyone else is shooting. I notice if its a 1911, or Glock, or XD, but no idea what brand of 1911.

a buddy of mine jsut got a 1911 and to be honest it feels good in my hands. but fails to cycle rounds to much to carry. every few rounds it jams. i can shoot it pretty good though with the fixed sights.

I will say that when shooting IDPA and USPSA, I do see more XD malfunctions than Glock, but the 1911 rules the roost with the most malfunctions.

interesting..Being the 2nd owner sure does make warranty claims a pain sometimes..Glad you found happiness in the Glock. I personally love my SIG. to each their own.
