Back in the early 1990s, I bought a 9mm 1911 from SA. I was building and gunsmithing my own SS guns at the time, but it was NIB and I couldn't pass it up for the money. Right out of the box, it wouldn't chamber a round. Not commercial loads, not handloads, not nothing. Put it through an inspection and found the problem. The chamber wasn't finish reamed to SAAMI specifications. The headspace, timing, and barrel fit were satisfactory, but it was clear to me that they didn't finish the gun once those were set. I called them, and they (and by they I mean some woman that wouldn't know a reamer - or a 1911 - if it hit her in the forehead) told me that "there was nothing they could do". I explained that it was NIB and that it hadn't been modified, and her answer was that I would have to pay to ship it overnight and that any associated repair costs would be on me. I finished the chamber myself in a few minutes. It ran well and was accurate enough afterward. I sold it immediately, and I haven't held, fired, considered, or purchased a SA product since. Even when they have a promotion where you can buy a POS XD and get 4 more of them free. Do I hold a grudge? Maybe. It's been 25 years now, but who's counting. The point of this rambling post: it might actually be the gun. I would consider that possibility up front.
