I was wonting to know if anyone has had any real expeariance with a light wieght 1911. i have a new in the box unfired springfield 1911A1 light weight that I was going to send to wilson combat to get a full work up but i am concerned that I will be wasting my time. I am a steel gun guy and i though i was getting a steel 1911 but ended up with this light weight springer. I dont know if i should send it to wilson or sell the thing and get a steel gun. So how much less of a gun is a aluminum 1911 gun compaired to a steel gun. if the frame life is between 12 and 15 thousand rounds then thats ok but if its less than that it sucks. who out there has the truth about the light wieght 1911. I know wilson mkes their own light wieght guns but d they work on light wieght guns from other gun makers. fill me in please with the facts.
