Star PD .45 ACP defect

I recently was given a Star PD .45 ACP. I did some reading up about it and most of the reviews were great. It was a good 1911 made from 1975 to 1990. Unfortunately mine has not lived up to that expectation. It seems to shoot incredibly low and then about once every 4 or 5 shots it shoots right on target. At first I thought it had to be the ammo, but I've since tried 3 or 4 different brands and each one has given me the same result. A buddy of mine heard about the recoil buffers being bad on this gun. I couldn't find much information about this though. If anybody knows what the problem is or how to fix it that would be much appreciated.

Are the flyers coming at from the same bullet position in the magazine, last or next to last bullet in the mag? Are the barrel bushing and locking lugs clean?
