    Closest I ever came was a Star BM that I liked, does that count?

    Seriously I would trade my S&W Shield for a good small 1911 in 9mm. Even a Star BKM if it came with a couple extra mags. I just can not get use to striker fired and I carried an old Mab model D for a while many years ago.

    You're probably correct that a good portion of semi-auto FTF's are magazine-related. However, a good gunsmith told me that mine was due to some amateur working on it.

    Well, that's a bummer. Incompetence is a whole 'nuther can of worms.

    Luck. :drunk2:

    Have you thought about replacing the barrel?

    No; the 'work' was done on the frame.

    Sir, step away from the toolbox!
    I like the Ruger light weight commander in 9mm.
    Have not shot the Springfield Ronin but I've seen one and it had a plastic trigger.
    For some reason I expect a plastic trigger in a Glock, etc but don't want to see one in a 1911.
    Guess I'm a hypocrite.

    I had a Star BM when they were cheap police trade ins from Spain and I liked it also.
    Never saw the "Starlite" alloy version (was the BKM, I think) but now that I'm a geezer the lighter weight would be nice.
