This was my first purchase from Buds. Awesome service, quick shipping and great prices. Now that I got that out of the way, we're off to the gun show. The fit and finish of this 1911 leaves little to be desired. It's not a high end 1911 but if you're reading these reviews then you probably already know that. The gun is well crafted despite its MIM parts and you'd be hard pressed to find a better deal with what the "loaded" has to offer in terms of the extras. The night sights are bright and aim where the bullets go. The grips are comfortable but could stand to be changed out for those of us who plan to run the gun ragged and might like to maintain the original look for our grandkids. The stock mags are not desirable but I have yet to have a malfunction with them (~200 rounds through the two mags alone). I have a total of just under 500 rounds through the gun so far, and as of yet, have had no failure to feeds/extract. Definitely be sure to clean, lube and grease your gun before going to the range for the first time. It made a huge improvement on the feel of the slide and I can only guess, on the performance of the pistol right out of the box. On a last note, don't hold your breath for a NM serial number but don't sweat the Imbel stamp either. I thought it would be a big deal to me but after shooting this gun it could say MADE IN FRANCE and I'd still be happy. Well, maybe not France... Shoot straight, be safe and enjoy!!
