The problem is with the .30 Carbine round itself. Other than M1 Carbine owners there is virtually no demand for it. It may have been a good idea at the time when the Army needed a light rifle but there are so many other well-established calibers that perform better.
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.
