finally getting first 1911! Very excited and it should be in my hands tomorrow. I have heard how delicate they can be and I am a little nervous because I do a heavy amount of dry fire practice. The gun is a RIA double stack in 9mm by the way. Is there anything different about practicing dry fire than with a Glock?
I bought a 51738 to shoot USPSA. I received the pistol Monday. I took it to the range on Tuesday. I couldn't get through a single magazine without a fail to feed. I tried the factory Mag and 4 other mags. The bull barrel is poorly fit. There is at least .008" side to side slop. There is at least .012" slop top to bottom. Both were measured with feeler gauges. With the hammer down you can't feel the slop. When the hammer back the barrel can be rattled easily. The barrel link to slide stop fit is visibly loose also. I've contacted Armscor and the best they can do is give me a 4-6 week window to get it back from the time they receive it. Oh and that 4-6 week window is subject to change without notice. All of the single stack guns I've seen of there have been excellent. This one is not. The dealer has offered to take the gun back and refund me. But then I'm out an FFL fee and shipping both ways. Or, I wait and maybe get a working pistol. I'm really disappointed and frustrated. To me a 4-6 week time frame tells me one of two things. 1 they are so over run with defective pistols they can't turn them around in a reasonable time frame. Or, 2 they don't care enough about customer satisfaction to put a rework in front of the production guns and get them turned around. I'm really leaning towards returning the gun and eating the shipping. What do y'all think? 4-6 weeks is at least 2-3 matches, and 2-3 classifiers. I know USPSA is just my hobby, but it's important to me. Unfortunately, it doesn't seem to be important to Armscor. I'm not sure how long the offer for a refund is good for.
