I have a full size Springfield and a Defender. I like the Defender a little more I think. Something to know about the defender, mine supposedly only had 50 rounds through it when I got it, and I had to change the recoil springs to get it to function correctly. Wolff Springs has them cheap. It was quicker than sending it in to Colt.I just would like to have me one 1911 and the Ruger or the Springfield sound good to me, I have look at the Colt Defender but it's too short.
You talk about archaic, then push a bunch of outdated DA/SA's?1911, what a disappointment! If you want something different, buy one of Sigs Special edition 226's. HK USP9, Beretta M9A3. Anything but the archaic 1911!
My reasoning is the exact opposite of yours; I have fairly large hands and the double stack is more comfortable for me whereas the single stack kinda "bites" into the web of my hand. Now this is not a putdown of the single stackers as most all are superb weapons; just a matter of personal preference. All autos that I've owned or were issued were doubles. On the flipside, singles are a little easier to conceal than some of the doubles most notably the Glock 21 I currently have.I don't have any Glocks, although I did have three. All but one was good, and the reason I went to the 1911 was that I just wasn't comfortable with the double stack feel. I think Glock is an excellent pistol, however. Now, I have two 1911's, a Springfield and a Colt.
wife has a emp 9 in her purse the thing is yes a .45 is a 1911 and yes mine says colt on it in .45Nice looking pistol that Springer EMP4 but my 1911 absolutely must be chambered in .45.
My son just bought a Dan Wesson Specialist ...I have one 1911 and it is a Dan Wesson. The Dan Wesson is a high quality pistol.
The only common complaints with Dan Wesson is galling with their stainless models. It seems they don't have enough carbon in the steel.My son just bought a Dan Wesson Specialist ...
Dan Wesson’s guns all have a stellar reputation. They’re built to tolerances that other manufacturers, short of custom 1911 builders, don’t even try to attempt.
You got any articles we could read on that? I was actually lookin at a Dan Wesson for another house gun. What do you mean Not enough Carbon in the steel?The only common complaints with Dan Wesson is galling with their stainless models. It seems they don't have enough carbon in the steel.
So we understand what galling is >>> https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Galling <<<You got any articles we could read on that? I was actually lookin at a Dan Wesson for another house gun. What do you mean Not enough Carbon in the steel?

I did a quick look at the link you provided and my first impression is this was a problem with earlier models going back about a decade and a wee-bit of talk about using a quality lube on the slide/frame.Here's a link to lots of Dan Wesson stainless 1911 galling discussions. It's a hot topic, like Glock BTF discussions, except galling isn't just annoying like BTF is, it seizes the slide to the frame so the gun stops cycling.
