From all l have learned here, plus owning one . Mine appears to be one of the non jamming ones. Have owned it for more then 10 years. I suggest don't load more then 5 rounds at a time, Also i would use hardball only. Good Luck with it and enjoy it.
Haven't owned one in .45, nor will in the future. Owned 2 of the old SA models. One in .22 and a .380. Both were jammomatics and were more dangerous if I would throw them as a weapon rather than pull the trigger. Sold the .380 for a big loss as I told the gent it was a POS. Still have the .22 as a memento (sp). Weren't too many made in .22 IMS's.
I carry mine daily, have shot many rounds thru it with 0 jams. Recoil is rough with heavy/hot loads, I shoot Low Recoil Fed Hydrashoks, and it is accurate enough and very controllable. The trigger is stout, as said above, but smooth on mine, I think 12lbs, but keep in mind that IS the safety. I love mine! Only gave $325 for it!
