I don't know why people have to qualify their observations of the 1911 in 9 mm as "makes a great range gun." It makes a great self defense gun also.

If you don't know, there is an archived pistol test on The Pistol Forum were a gentleman there put a “WTL” (Warren Tactical) from Springfield through a 40K+ torture test with a total of 12 stoppages 0 malfunctions 3 parts breakages. Pretty damn good for a 1911 pistol in a caliber that gets faint praise!

I would imagine this to be the test mentioned above. It is broken up into at or about 30 segments. Links to the various segments are found towards the bottom of this link. I went through this series some time back. It is rather long due to the number of rounds involved. I imagine there will be some cold indoor days in the not to distant future. Someone else did a similar series on the Springfield Professional Model. If there is interest, I can attempt to locate that one as well.

Turns out the extended Professional reliability saga was posted on a forum that is defunct. It would take the fellow who did it to post it elsewhere if he has it saved.
