Most of them are. But there are plenty with an axe to grind and come here just to smear somebody else. Without the other side here as well to defend themselves and state their case we are only getting a single, biased opinion. And even then if we did bring in both sides it'd quickly get into a pissing match. Sorry but we've seen too many people who weren't happy, who then made it their personal mission in life to run the other guy out of business by badmouthing them on every forum they could find.
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.
