I have a 1911 PD that had some feeding issues with certain HP ammo but with a very slight "tune up" it works fine now. Love the pistol. Love the weight and handling. One of my favorites.

Iíve had a 1911pd since 2006. I had it bob tailed in 2007. I did eventually put in Woelff 16# variable recoil spring. I had trouble racking slide. Shot IDPA with if for a few years. One of my most accurate handguns. I just looked at my records, líve shot over 1700 rounds thru it. Also sadly havenít shot it since 2016. I better get it out for some shooting .

On several occasions I've written about this model of pistol. This search:

... oughta find most of them.

Except on days I'm warming it up on the range, it's probably been 2 - 3yrs since carrying anything else in its place. It -did- take changing the rear sight for that to become true: I wanted a sight useful for 1-hand operation. That's the only change not *strictly* cosmetic.
