    1st review

    This is my current carry weapon. I got it at a great price barely used from my local small gun store. I love shooting this gun because it has a great weight and balance for my somewhat large hand (even better with added Pachmyer wrap around grip), light trigger pull ~2-2.5 lb., very accurate factory sights at 100m, and I am a fan of .45 cal in general. The drawbacks that I had to take off for were due to carrying it. It is a large-framed handgun so concealement means a big shirt and inside the pants back oriented holster. Not the worst feeling, but far from comfortable. The other is simply and issue with most 1911s especially .45 cal, ammo capactiy. While I do believe bigger is in general better for defense, the limited mag capacity makes me carry an extra one around.

    In short, great when shooting, sort af a pain to carry.

    Great pistol. Runs flawlessly, accurate. This is the best 1911 for the money.

    All in all this is not a bad 1911 for the price. I would have given it 5 stars if it was made in the USA.

    This is the best gun for the money! I love the trigger and after 500 rounds it still operates flawlessly! Very comparable to my Kimber, 1/3 the cost! LOVE it!!
