1911 experts (Posted on 1/30/13 at 5:52 pm)
I am building a Wilson Combat 1911 I and have a question what is the Diff between a mainspring housing that is "Speed chute flat" or an "Speed chute officers"? and if it does not matter which one i pick does the choice effect anything else in the build?

A good friend of mine was given a Wilson 1911 as a gift that a friend of his built and we could never get the damn thing to run right. After mad polishing of the feed ramp it worked a little better, but it still always seems to hang up on the last round in the mag no matter what mag we tried.

I think a lot of the issues surround the guy who assembled it. I know my friend had to go back and do some additional fitting on some of the parts to make it return to battery properly. Overall it's been pretty frustrating since Wilson's are supposed to be top notch.... Although I'm 100% sure their production complete guns are a lot different
