Hi all, long time lurker first time poster.
I have a 1911. I don't want to say the manufacturer because I don't want to bash anyone in my first post, or ever really. Anyway, its not a real high end gun at all, one of the cheaper ones in fact. The thing won't feed JHP very reliably. I contacted the manufacturer asking if they'll look at it, and they said something like "our pistols are designed to feed FMJ only, but yes we'll work on it to make it do JHP reliably too."
When I drop a couple hundred dollar bills on a gun, I expect it to work. Thats why I do my research and make sure to buy good stuff (this came highly recommended). I bought a CBST holster and expected it to be worth $80, and it is. However, this gun says .45 ACP on the barrel, not .45 ACP FMJ only on the barrel. FWIW I have tried several brands and bullet weights of JHP and none really work.
Is it too much for me to expect it to feed JHP too, and if it doesn't expect the manufacturer to fix it on their dime?
