I have one; I started a thread on this back when I was contemplating the purchase. Since then I have put 800+ rounds through it, mostly Fed and Win FMJ but also Speer Gold Dot JHP with not one single malfunction. It is a basic .45 ACP, 1911 pistol, not a competition gun, but that is what I wanted. Here is what I did this afternoon, firing at 10yds rapid fire, 8rds Speer Gold Dot JHP:

(sorry it's sideways forgot to orient it on the camera)
and here is the thread on this forum prior to / since my purchase:
In summary, I recommend this pistol for a utilitarian .45 ACP. If you want to compete, you need to get a competition pistol. But you won't go wrong with this one for a SD or recreational 1911 pistol, in my opinion-which is of course worth what you paid for it! Good Luck!

That's really weird. Another club member who shoots HP rifle with us liked mine so much he bought one a week after I did; he also has not had a single malfunction of any kind. Is your friend's son shooting factory ammunition? Mine is smooth as glass and has never hiccuped.
That's what I paid; got mine at Ginn's Gunworks in Tylertown. Chad is a good guy to deal with.
One of our club members did tell me that the high-capacity (double stack mags) models had had problems in the past, now that you mention it...
Let us know when you get it and how it shoots!!
