    With all the trouble these ultra sized 1911s seem to be causing people I haven't heard much about this one...? Does anyone know anything about these - fired one, held one, have one...??? Thx...

    I own one. It has been perfectly reliable and quite accurate for me.
    My beefs with it are mostly cosmetic, but functionally its great.

    I will say again... functionally, and reliability and accuracy wise, it is perfect.

    Some of the small parts (GS, TS, SS) are not of a completely matching finish to the slide or the frame.

    The trigger has a great pull, but the shoe fits somewhat sloppily with some up and down play.

    The grip safety is not as easy/smooth to engage as my Nighthawks or my Springfield. It always engages, but it's just not as smooth?

    These are all picky things... but and it's quite accurate, and very reliable.
