Were to begin
First i want to state, this is my first 1911 and my first NEW purchased gun.
I am a legal resident in the USA, but i am not American. So i was a little bit, scared that i would get problem obtaining a gun.
Well turns out went just great! And about 5 days after i ordered the 1911, i got a phone call from Dana safety supplies the were the closest dealer. So the let me know my gun arrived.
A swift form had to be filled in, and various ID was shown. And then the background check was approx 2 days. Until i had the green light from the FBI. So finally my gun in my hand.
What a awesome pistol!, well build no rattling slide as i heard Colts 1911's tend to do everything is a snug fit.
There is also a nice box it comes in, which was cracked due to shipping and the flask of oil spilled in the box. Not a big deal, this happens! So no harm no faul there oil is inexpensive simple enough. Also there was a small crack in the box, this does indicate there shipping method is pretty raw handled. However, it's a pistol so it can really handle it.
*Fast and good service, delivery was prompt and without a hassle or long waits.
*Fantastic pistol, very rigid build, heavy in the hand and seamless craftsmanship!
*Cheap, i got more then what i expected really from the brand Girsan.
*The box, is a plastic hard case were the foam is not formed like the gun. So it does not lay in the box, it can slide when carrying which is do NOT LIKE!
*Shipping was a bit raw, reflecting to BUD here as a store. The might want to check into that, there after all firearms.
I can recommend anyone who loves the 1911 design, but simply is not able or willing to spend a good 1200 usd for one.
This 1911 is fantastic, well build , and a true worthy gun you can and will enjoy.
Shooting a 45acp for this price is more then awesome...
And please do not believe the 1911 fan boys that you need 600 rounds to break it in (whatever that means to begin with)
Pure myth vs fact, this gun is one i do not regret!
