Here is a pic of mine. I like it quite a bit, but I prefer to shoot my NRM series 80 blued Colt, which was considerably less money.

It has never jammed, but I've only put about 200 rnds thru it. Like I said, I usually shoot one of my other 1911's.

Same thing for the NRM Series 80's:

Gonna read the review now. I already read the series 80 review and it was very interesting. Do you know how much heavier the stainless series 70 is than the blued?

There is no difference in weight.

It's been my experience that stainless guns are always heavier. That's good news to hear, though I may go with the blued anyways...

Do the new 1911's have any stipling or roughness to the front and back of the magwell? I can't really tell from any of the pictures I've seen. Gonna see if they have any in at the gunshop. I thought I saw one last time I was there, but I can't remember.

No problems to this point. And yes, the mags drop free when the mag release is pushed. :rolleyes:
