I have - Its a cheaply made 1911 made in the Phillipines. It's the same company who also makes Charles Daley 1911s. While the brand has a following, I don't think I'd ever buy one. I've read too many horror stories about off spec parts/frames.iCeMaN said::evil: Never heard of the 1911 brand he has...although thats not saying much
It's not the Single Action trigger of the 1911 that presents the problem. It's a matter of training. If you are pulling the trigger before you are ready to fire or want to fire, you are probably going to experience an AD/ND. With DA/SA guns like the Sig 220, you have to realize that after the first shot the action switches to Single Action so a person who has weak gun handling skills is going to confront some of the same things he would with a dedicated Single Action pistol. -I have seen LEO's AD/ND on the range during their handgun qualification with Beretta pistols, Sig pistols, and HK pistols that were DA/SA. It's not the gun, it's the shooter.kanthek said:I wasn't extrapolating from this story - I already held the opinion about 1911's before I read it. Given the choice something like an XD or a Sig 220 is a better carry for users who shoot less. A single action trigger is not something you want in the hands of a person under stress (ie in a life or death situation).
