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.

I bought one new back when I could still hear things. At that time, I don't recall a recoil buffer. I know I used buffers for 1911's with mine. Tou might try shooting it without the buffer and see haow it reacts.

Col Cooper praised the Star PD but advised that it was to be carrried a lot and shot a little.

Steel hammering aluminum....not a long term sustainable situation for the aluminum.
