Bought this gun as a project gun. Didn't want to work on a high end gun and this gun seemed to get good reviews.
Very impressive out of the box. Finish was great, slide to frame was not to loose, and the barrel lockup and barrel bushing were good. Trigger was like I expected,...not that great.
Took it to the range and put 100 rounds of Blazer Brass 230 grain through it with the one supplied magazine. Windage was spot on but the gun shoots low. New rear sight and problem solved, no big deal. The gun ran without any hiccups. That's good enough for me on a sub $500.00 1911 so I give it 5 Stars.
That being said I will be replacing a few of the smaller parts with a higher quality ones but that is just personal preference.
I polished up the fire group controls all the way down to the trigger bow. Replaced the sear spring and main (hammer) spring with EGW parts which runs about $15.00. And I now have around a 3.5 lb trigger. Has some creep but good enough for this gun.
Overview. This gun is well worth the money. It's not a Dan Wesson or STI so don't expect that kind of a firearm. But it seems solid and very glad I bought it.
