I traded another (originally more expensive) 1911 for the STI Spartan 5. Dealing with Buds was very easy and straightforward. They replied within hours of receiving my proposed trade. Inspected my trade-in and replied the day they received the pistol and shipped the Spartan same day. They shipped on a Tues and I had the Spartan in hand from my FFL on Friday (Wed was the 4th of July).
I firmly believe the Spartan is the best value available in 1911s. I have a 3 that is my daily carry and has over 2000 rounds through it without an issue. I put 100 rounds of cheap ball through the 5 after a quick cleaning, No issues with function and the pistol shot dead on out of the box. Absolutely love the Spartan and I give Buds the highest of recommendations.
