I have read that the model 1911 isn't for someone that isn't prepared to get it running correctly and it will take 2000 rounds and some gunsmithing.
I have little time and patience.
Is there truth to the attention needed? Should I get a modern semi-auto such as a Glock or FNX instead?
Is there someone that fits my description that got a 1911 and then wished they had not that can share some insight?
