I am on the cusp of picking up a 1911 for primary concealed carry and I just wanted to gather some opinions on the subject of 1911's with tight tolerances. (Currently looking at the Dan Wesson bobtail)
It has been said that these "accurized" versions of the 1911 are fickle when it comes to operation in less than ideal environments (sand, dirt, mud, rain, etc.). What is your opinion?
I assume they will require more diligence with lubrication and cleaning than other handguns with looser clearances, but does this have any effect on how your treat your carry gun?
To put it lightly, I do not want to end up with a safe-queen/range-gun that never sees any holster time because it is too tight to run under sub-optimal conditions.
