Purchased one of these Arscore Detective Special clones in January and finally got to fire it a few days ago.
The fit and feel isn't up to Colt or even S&W standards.
However it is pretty good overall. Nice parkerized finish with a decent set of checkered wood boot grips. If my RIA 1911A1 had come with grips this nice 9 years ago I'd have kept them.
As far as accuracy goes the gun is more accurate than I am and seems to place the shots where you point the gun.
Goes bang every time. I've put over 100 rounds of .38 special 158gr RNL through it and no hiccups or issues. I'll keep going until I'm past 500 and then call it reliable enough.
No odd wear or weird quirks so far. Just reliable bang bang bang bang bang bang.
Even better it was $250 out the door and has 6 shots despite being virtually the same size as all the other 5 shot snubs.
I like it.
