I agree with the OP; as amazing as CMP is, occasionally one gets past them. With a slide that far from fitting flush with the frame, Id start to worry about the risk of out-of-battery rounds causing trouble. Definitely something not right with the mechanics of that pistol. It looks pretty at least....

(just my opinion)......
probably right, ill see if i can find the lock feature. (Edit: I don't think I have that ability in this sub forum)

In the OP's first posting, he wanted to "hear some thoughts" from people. I found these two conversations on 1911 forum about a slide sitting forward and not flush with the frame at the back of the slide:

Just noticed the trigger. Is it an extended of some kind?
edit: I wonder if it was made a SG by virtue of it being a 1911 frame.

It's a 1911 frame with a 1911 trigger. The 1911A1s had a shorter trigger.

It cost me $36 to send mine back. My pistol did not have any visible issues it was just ugly silver park from the 80ish Anniston rebuild. I'd rather someone who wants it get it than try to sell it. It will never be worth $800 much less $950. This has been the only disappointment I have ever received from CMP. First time dealing with the new regime. It was worth the gamble to try for an early rebuild. Oh well, supposedly luck of the draw. Lol. The good ole days of Mr. Orest are missed.

maybe im misunderstanding you but i find it odd that you think if Orest were still here you would have received a different pistol?!?!......CMP gets the same 8,000 guns no matter who is in charge!.......... i was about to thank you for doing the right thing, since you were unhappy with your purchase but then you completely crapped on CMP so no kudos for you!!!

Ya, I'm thinking the thread needs to be locked.

Pistol is off to CMP
