I have to admit - My FS HC 9 had to have a bit of polish before it would feed HP's -- Mostly ramp 'n rails, but some internals also (although I'm sure just the ramp and rails were enough for the feed...

All I can share is my own experience -- If my (#6715 Talo) is any indication, they're undervalued by a good amount. "Mid-level" is a nice place to put it, but the thing outperforms most 1911's I've...
