TISAS Classic 1911-A1 45ACP 5" GI BLACK
[TZM11BL]
$369.00
by Douglas H Date Added: Thursday 07 February, 2013
Mine arrived in 4 days and the gunsmith noted points he looks for in a 1911. This gun met all of them and he mentioned it is a very good slide to frame fit and is well made and finished.

Visually, it is nearly flawless. There are no bevelled corners or similar touches, but it's a modestly priced gun of good materials that is well built and apparently well liked (based on the reviews). The grips are smooth wood and may be protected better with several light rubbed coats of boiled linseed oil. The feed ramp is polished well. The supplied magazine is MecGar and a Wilson 8rd will also work in the gun (I have 2 that I checked with and they are very good mags). Over all, I believe this is a nice gun. How it shoots and feeds/ejects remains to be seen, but the gunsmith seemed to be pleased with it and felt it was the equal of most of the Springfields. That's his view and if you disagree, it makes no difference since we have a new $400 gun and cash left over versus a Springfield. Everyone does not require a Springfield or Ed Brown..

I will have a gunsmith disassemble/clean/lube/assemble mine before I shoot it or clean it. A gunsmith can see and correct minor points better than a casual shooter. A stiff slide release and magazine release on my gun need attention. Although the gun is clean inside the chamber and barrel, the rails and other parts that can contain factory grit should be cleaned well and then lubricated. I feel a $30 one time fee to spot any problems, correct them and ensure the gun is safe and operates as smooth as possible is cheap 'insurance'.
