Back in 1970 we were issued 45 ACP ammo from 1950&48 & C rats from 1953. We shot & ate the stuff we were all surprised there were no problems...just saying. But again that's Uncle Sam's Misguided Children...nothing is too good for us...The reason is simple, if you have shot hundreds & hundreds of one brand & lot# of ammo without fail.
Why queer the numbers? I bought cans of sealed Military surplus ammo early 80s for $3.00 a box all with
sealed primers & bullets.
As for the FLGR I removed that last year for a simple take down without tools. The FLGR was of no real benefit I could ever see.
You can pick it all apart by blaming Colt Firearms, but you can never disregard there are thousands or Military & early Colts like my 51
that are drop dead reliable & beautiful. Just my .02 if I had only one pistol, it would be Betsy a 1917 Military Colt 1911 that has from day one
shot with all the gusto a real 1911 can have in one life.
That is all.
