I shot them last week again, and they're still having repeated failures to feed. One isn't too bad, but the other one chokes all the time. I can't put these things back on the open market knowing that somebody may buy them, keep them as their home defense gun and then someday find out the hard way they're pieces of crap. I think I'll just chalk it up as a $500 lesson and play with them on my bench whenever I'm bored, seeing if I can get them to work. If I can't then there will be some used Taurus PT-111 parts for sale on eBay soon.
Avoid the temptation to replace everything on your brand-new 1911 just to make it "better". Know what you're changing out and why. You may spend a lot of money fixing things that weren't broken to begin with. Shoot at least 500 rounds through it first, then decide what you don't like and want to improve. Regarding vintage 1911s, pre-1970 pistols are highly collectible in original, unaltered condition and should NEVER be refinished or modified as it completely ruins their monetary value.
