    just bought a new fullsized loaded 1911 a few days ago at the gunshow on sunday. checking the slide to frame fit i noticed it was way off. I realize it's not a semi custom 1911 but for a production 1911 i figured it would be fit better.here's what it looks like

    I imagine that if you call them up and say "hey, my pistol doesn't fit together properly, and no I didn't mess with anything" they'll probably send you a shipping label to send it in for some kind of servicing.
    At least, I'd hope so.

    I hope so too because I was surprised to see it like this. I couldn't really judge the fit because it was ziptied and i figured it was the ziptie causing it to not be flush. sadly that was not the case :(

    I don't get why you wouldn't check out a gun in and out before buying it..especially at a gun show....

    that looks worse than the Kimbers Shenanigan tries to bash....

    the gun is/was ziptied so the slide is pushed back slightly.

    I think there's about a 50/50 chance that they'll fix it, maybe less. If it doesn't affect the function of the gun they may say that there's nothing to be fixed. Give them a cal and give them a shot. Great time to test all the stories of glorious customer service.

    wow that's just bad, they should fix that, hell that should have never made it past QC.

    I've learned this lesson too, carefully inspect before buying and know what you are looking at, or take a buddy that does.

    yea..but you're seriously interested in buying it..and it's a gun show... so you might never see the person you're getting it from again unless it's a local dealer slinging out some deals. ALWAYS check out your gun inside/out before buying.

    looks like a quality control issue to me. in my opinion that gun never should have left the factory. definitely give them a call.
