Been expecting this to happen for the last 5 years or so. My Iver Johnson Thrasher (Officer sized 1911) sheared an operating rod at the base. This has been reported for a long time to be a problem with Shooters Arms Manufacturing 1911’s produced in the Philippines. Fortunately a couple of other brands operating rods will fit interchangeably. Crazy, but this is without a doubt the most accurate 45 1911 I own at 10 yards, short barrel and all.

Had some FTF issues early on but a recoil spring swap remedied this. I have ran about 250 rounds through it since switching the spring out and I’m more confident with reliability. Decided to slowly start personalizing it by switching to a flat main spring housing and having a long, Wilson Combat trigger installed. My buddy gave me the removable, checkered front strap to try out as well.
