    Before I bought my SA Micro Compact I called Springfield and asked if it could handle the +p loadings. The paperwork that came with the gun says not to do it.

    The answer from SA was,"It would be best not to use +p as a steady diet in ANY pistol, but the Micro Compact will handle it as well as any of the others".

    I carry the standard velocity DPX loadings by Tarus. Some of my reloads are +ps' just for fun now and then and to clean up a little lead in the barrel from time to time.

    What a sad day it would be when a John Moses Browning designed 1911 could not handle +P ammo.

    I've used +p ammo in my 1911s for the past 20 years; while I don't shoot +p ammo exclusively for obvious reasons, I do carry nothing but +p....

    For me, I started out using Cor-Bon 200 grain "flying ashtray" loads, and have since changed to a 165 grain Pow-r-Ball load.

    In 1910, I don't think there was a lot of manufactures producing +p ammo Plus the design wasn't built on an aluminum frame, and a 3" barrel
