    I don't think anybody is ignoring Tuner's point. It's just that there are other valid points to consider and one of them is that, although an integral plunger tube will likely be more expensive to repair in the rare event that it becomes damaged, the conventional method of attaching plunger tubes to 1911s lends itself to a less rare loosening event.

    I'm not sure what you mean by this. :confused: I would certainly value your opinion as I do most others. I see the forum as a potential learning experience, not just a place where self-appointed gurus come to strut their stuff, and even rank novices can offer interesting, if not important, inputs and information based on their life experiences.

    I frequent The High Road because people like Tuner and a host of other members have a level of expertise that can be relied on to be factual and more than mere speculation. However, it's my opinion that those members who seldom deign to ask questions but are always quick to offer their expert advice to a question asked by others, never really take full advantage of all that a good firearm website can offer. It's as if they believe that the act of questioning betrays a lack of knowledge. And that just seems sad to me.

    My post was about the cavalier attitude some displayed about a fact. I was not astute enough to notice the plunger tube. Were it to break it would be a very big deal to me. While I do occasionally work on my own firearms I value having a good smith in my area but try to economize whenever possible.

    I did not intend to claim that Tuner's opinion was the only valuable one posted, merely that someone claiming it was no big deal ought to consider that each posting is not personally directed at them. Some are meant for me as I don't always understand the ramifications of what I tinker with.

    Weekend coming up, and that means another chance to put a few rounds through my SR1911.

    For those who would like to see an in depth tear down and measurement of all critical dimensions on the pistol, check out APG member Joe Chambers' review:

    http://www.1911pro.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=11&t=335

    Note that others have mentioned the chamber on these barrels needing to be finish reamed. I wonder if that is one of the root causes of several posts where guys are having issues with RTB using both factory hardball and handloads.

    I ordered the Remington R1, but only because I do not like a stainless 1911:evil:

    I have owned rugers in the past (and I still have a Ruger Standard 22) and they have always performed very well, but my 1911s need to be black:)

    This makes me wish I hadn't bought my Rock Island 1911 a few months ago. This thing is beautiful, and all American-made.

    After this weekend, it will have been 750 rounds, and without a cleaning it.
