    It's not the destination, it's the journey.

    I bought a SA 45ACP years ago in the early 90's and had 5 Wilson mags for it. Ran 1000 rounds of hardball reloads (mostly 200 Gr SWC) with a few jams here and there over the course of 3 days. I then tore the gun down, polished the feed ramp until I could see my face in it, reassembled it and ran another 1000 rounds with Zero Failures. Some guns do need a breakin period and some minor polishing here and there. It has all the original parts except the sights and hammer. Yes, some guns run better with different types and brands of ammo. I just want mine to shoot most of them. Good luck with the minor polishing here and there.
