Send it to me, promise not to put more than three or four......thousand rounds through it
Have not heard of having many problems with the 1911.
Have a couple of low recoiling "pet" loads for you. Affordable. 230LRN, 3.4 Clays. Will work a 20# recoil spring. 750fps. Something a bit lighter? 185LSWC, 3.8 gr Clays, 750fps. Need a 14# recoil spring with this. Very low recoil.
