    I've found this to be true... even my "El cheapo" Taurus 1911 is reliable as hell!

    Mil-spec 1911s have passed the most rugged tests come up with for a century. National-match 1911s will get sick from a grain of sand though.

    As far as I'm concerned, I ONLY want a mil-spec 1911. That great rattle when they slap into your palm is pure win.
