I have never bought one for lots of reasons. One of the most important is that I have no practical reason to want one. I shoot my preferred pistols more quickly and just as accurately as my GF's Gold Cup with target sights. And they're more fun to shoot. Another important reason is that I have had more malfunctions with that Gold Cup than all of my other pistols combined, all of which were double-feeds. True, those pretty much went away after break-in, but there were a heck of a lot, and frankly I don't like the idea that this kind of problem is even possible. You lose at least 2 rounds, and you can't clear it with a tap/rack. And if I include the malfunctions I continue to witness my GF having, the numbers are way worse. She has limpwrist nose-dives with it that I never get. For some reason, contrary to all common knowledge, her 1911 is more prone to limpwristing than are Glocks. She has a gen 4 G19, which is near the top of the limpwrist food chain, and she hasn't had a stoppage of any kind with it since installing the 04 spring. She has never limpwristed any of my guns. Her 1911 is to the point where I loathe the sight of it. Whenever she shoots it, I end up clearing the gun for her multiple times. And I end up cleaning the gun for her, too, and it sucks. But she loves this gun. She was never into guns before, but for some reason she sought out the 1911 and recognizes the Colt brand as the original. She has never bothered to get a holster for any of her other guns, aside from her CCW, but she picked out a Milt Sparks holster for this one which sees only range use and hasn't been worn on a belt since the day she got it.
