Rough day Friday

After braggin on my 1911, my bud goes and buys one. Within two mags, failed to fire, failed to feed, and failed to do anything. Racked the rounds out, and it seemed to get better. My bud hasn't shot a lot so he had trouble hitting the target. I asked him if he had cleaned the gun prior to shooting it and he said no. I told him that he should have disassembled it and cleaned it good. I got to thinking this morning, and I think I remember just loading up some mags, making sure the chamber was not blocked and ripping off about 30 rounds with no malfunction whatever. Did I get a good one and my bud get a bad one. Still like my Taurus PT-1911.

You will have to see when he cleans the pistol. I know that my Stainless PT-1911 didn't have much lube in it from the factory by my buddies blued version was just caked with it. We wound up having to ultrasonic clean his pistol before he shot it but its been flawless after it was cleaned.

I've ran bore snake thru mine ,like twice ,d off I went to the range. After almost 2 k rounds ,I can count failures on one hand. And all of them was due to my reloads. My PT1911 seen less then 200 rounds of factory ammo.

My Pt1911 Flawless, only 1 ftf and that was due to guide rod change to a GI guide rod. Went back to full length and have had 0 problems.

My PT 1911 flawless, except initially with JHPs. My buddy smoothed the ramp, and its been good to go.

As said, it could be lube and/or manufacturer grime. But if your buddy has not shot much, it could also be him limp wristing.

it all depends, it could be, but I don't think so.

fwiw when I bought my Kahr P380, I couldn't get more then 2 rounds off at a time. After cleaning it got better (around 10 rounds per malfunction)

few days ago I bought a MP40pro...

I bought it, and right after, I took it to the LGS's range and shot 50 rounds of ammo. no malfunctions. it had alot of 'assembly' lube on it. I think I did the same with my MP9 back when I got it too...

so it all depends. not something I'd rule out, but I wouldn't bet on it either.

That's why the good Lord invented the break in period and Hoppe's #9.

I have a 1911 AR w gold trim. It has no problem with JHP.

Then I ask myself..why would I need hollow-point ammo in a .45?

Because hollow points are better than round nose for self defense.
