3" Barreled 1911's, should I?
I need some folks to keep me on the straight and narrow. I've been eyeing Sprinfield Armory's G.I. 1911 for a long time. I ended up buying their Mil-Spec and I love it. It's as reliable as it's apossible to be. But I've noticed their offering the GI in 3" and 4" barrel options. I love the way a small .45 looks and feels but I've read some commends on this site indicating problems with the reliability of shorter barreled versions. I'm surprised Springfield doesn't offer the Mil-Spec in shorter barrel lenghts.
So what do you all think? are the 3" really just not viable? Is the 4" the first size that is? I'd be interested in your opinions.
Carry Gun HAS to feed & Extract EVERYTHING 100%
See, if it's a carry gun IMHO, it's GOT to be 100% reliable all the time with whatever I stuff it with. If I'm traveling, especially, I might not be able to get the premium stuff I like. Heck I might even have to settle for reloads in a real pinch! That's why I love my Glock and My Sig P245 because they'll feed anything, anytime! It's got to feed, extract and hit where I aim. It's got to be able to absorb all weather and field conditions... from Big City to Deep Woods and everything in between.
