I've had it for 15 years now, never with any reliability issues whatsoever. In the last 500-750 rounds or so, I started to have some Failures to Eject. It seemed very ammo dependant, but my desire to CC a weapon with intermittant failures was dwindling. I did a lot of troubleshooting (post on forum.m1911.org) and finally decided it was beyond my ability to fix. So.... spent $68 to overnight it to EGW guns in PA. Hopefully it won't be THAT much to fix. Best-case scenario, new link and some cleaning up of the lugs. Worst-case - the above plus a new barrel and frame machining. Anyway. I'll let y'all know what happens here. OH. Getting my Big Dots installed too.
