Congratulations.
The magazine issue with the tight grip screws is not all that uncommon on the 1911. many of them have grip screws that shoot loose.

The 1911 is an incredible platform and always will be.

The Steyr is totally different animal, just wait until you strip the 1911 for cleaning. The 1911 is a bit more labor intensive in cleaning. Of course the capacity is way less, carrying a 1911 for 8 or more hours a day gets to be a bit of a chore.

I would say keep them both, the 40 is a fine round for defense

The 1911 is interesting in that a full detail strip is actually a bit easier than other handguns.

Pick up an armorers video or book. Wilson has a book that is very good and will allow you to strip the gun down to just bare slide and frame. Then you can get the gun almost steralized.
