I've had some dirty guns create some issues.

I remember when I was breaking in this gun in accordance with the instructions that LB said to follow.

Even with frequent wipe downs and reapplying the recommended CLP it was filled with crud once I finally field stripped it.

Ran much smoother after that, too.

Clean & well-lubed gun is a happy gun, right ?

I'm gonna go back and read through your initial thread. I know that I'm going to run into all sorts of problems once I get my gear up and running.....good to see the advice given on some of these threads.

This is a great place to learn. Very grateful for the membership here.
I too love 1911's in all sizes. And this Ultra had some teething problems, but it's all sorted now and is a real pleasure to shoot.

And reloading for it allows me to tailor loads to my liking, and my gf's.
