At the range the other day I noticed something.
My Springfield GI model has been running flawlessly. I'm quite pleased with it.
The guy in the next lane was not having any fun with his Kimber.
I offered to help and we took it apart to see if there was anything obviously wrong.
There wasn't but I was struck with how different the innards looked between our guns.
Mine has tooling marks galore; his was perfectly smooth on every machined surface.
I've noticed this before. In the Army the Remington-Rand guns were always rougher inside than the Colts (not that there were many Colt M1911A1 left in 1987).
I am now wondering that in the quest to make it pretty if they're ignoring critical dimensions.
