    Work on four or five 3 in 1911s that won't run and you'll understand the sign. I have torn my hair out on a couple of them. They are far more trouble than they are worth IMO. Chopping a 1911 shorter than a Commander IS just silly. A Commander can be carried all day just as easily as a 3 in. and is more reliable out of the box from most manufacturers and easier for most people to shoot and hit with. It's not that they "can't" be made to run but it's kind of like keeping a Ferrari in full race tune. Everything has to be perfect. You can get a 5 in 1911 to run 100% with monotonous regularity with relative ease compared to a 3 in gun.
