This gun looks immaculate. No major tooling marks of any kind. The finish is even and smooth. I do hate the "SARAC" and "READ OWNER'S MANUAL" markings however. The fit on many of the components is very good (Barrel bushing, slide release..). This looks like a great base gun for a build (assuming it is spec), or just as is for cheap-o beater pistol. A definite rival to what is coming out of the Philippines. I think I will be throwing parts at it. I have already started a list.. and the feed ramp is coated same as frame, needs polished.
Many of the reviews mentioned a 'no rattles' fit. Mine sounds like a maraca. I checked the fit with anvil micrometers and calipers, they are out of tolerance from 1911 GI spec. Most noticeably, .012" off in the receiver's rail gap. It has a a snag in the take up of the trigger that does not feel right at all, and a little creep. One thing that really annoys me are the grip bushings are metric. The frame fit is M5 X .8, and the through hole of the bushing is M3 x .5. I believe that is similar to Beretta bushings so maybe that is where they got the idea. The outside of the bushing is close to GI 1911 form but the ones on mine are oversize (.010" if I recall). I had to smack a pair of G10 grips to get them on, and of course I could not actually secure them because I do not have grip screws that would fit (the Girsan grip screws have a 5/16 head like an M9 grip screw, standard is .275", and a standard M3 head will be undersize). The bushings are not locktite'd or staked either. Took them out by hand. Will make it easy to remachine and tap the frame I guess.. or lose a grip.
