Yep, and that was not the intent of the program.

Compared to today's wonder pistols, the M1911 and M1911-A1 pistols do appear to be lacking. But, I find the small sights to allow for better precision shooting. The caliber is not, in my opinion, a detriment as the 45 ACP is a long proven handgun caliber. Are they as tight as a bullseye match pistol? No, they rattle when shaken, but they also tend to continue functioning when crudded up with a half a pound of GSR, dirt, and mud. The trigger is a dedicated single action, so no transition from DA to SA and no long, mushy, crunchy, no idea exactly when it will release the striker trigger pull. These are very functional and well tested handguns.
