Yea idk how many period 1911s are for sale. Was singer the only maker at the time? I assume the newer ones have improvements.



Oh lord no! During WWII anyone with a lathe in the garage got a government contract for 1911s Joking aside I think there were at least a half dozen manufacturers of 1911s during WWII alone.

Of course the design has been tweaked over the last 100 years, but even so, I've had a lot of very knowledgeable people say that unless you buy an expensive highly tuned boutique 1911 you shouldn't expect it be 100% reliable with anything other than GI ball ammo, which is what it was originally designed for.
