Springfield PB9151LP 1911 Mil-Spec 7+1 45ACP 5" Package
by ALI-REZA F Date Added: Sunday 15 September, 2013
My favorite 1911. more reliable and more predictable than the finicky Kimbers imho. Has a break in period like any other 1911 where you may experience one jam per box of 100 rounds. this is to be expected in any 1911 in the first few hundred rounds. it is after this break in period of 200-300 rounds that we see 1911's come into their own for reliability. with this gun, after 200-300 rounds you are looking at extreme reliability with this Springfield mil spec, I shoot 1500 rounds a year through it. I clean it once every six months, if that. I think at one point I went 1.5 years without a cleaning. And despite that, not a single failure (after the first couple hundred rounds) Right now, it has not been cleaned for about 500 rounds and i cant get it to jam no matter how hard i try. I load up both the stock springfield 7 round magazines and some Wilson-Combat 8 round magazines and then I fire in rapid succession trying to make it jam. Not a hiccup. I am really impressed guys. I can't make her jam. And I am not even using quality brass FMJ's. those cycle fine! But when I do my torture tests, I alternate between magazines of hollow points and wolf steel FMJ's. this mil spec eats it all without issue. For a 1911 to cycle JHP's and cheap steel-case russian FMJ's all without a single jam is highly impressive. Try that with a Kimber... hah! 1911's were designed for neither steel case nor JHP's. this springfield mil-spec 1911 is a steal-of-a-deal 1911 and it puts more expensive 1911's to shame.
