Shot well out of the box... Buds was great -fast delivery and keep me updated on status of my order. This appears to be a good 1911 for the money. Recoil was much less than I anticipated. I am just getting used to a 1911 setup, so far ,whats not to like-accurate, great size and fits my hand perfectly. If it wasn\'t for a pit mark on the extractor I would give a 5.

If you are wanting a compact 1911. Its hard to beat this weapon for the money.

I will keep my story short, here we go: I been a big fan of full size 1911 all my life and had owned several of them through the years from low ends to high dollar ones, so this wasn't my first rodeo with 1911's, however never owned a compact one, so I order this one. I was aware of all the good/bad reviews,videos and so on floating on the net. The finish on this firearm is amazing, the fit is awesome, the only thing I did was polished the feeding ramp to a mirror finish and that's it. This firearm will eat up anything you feed it. In general and to keep my story short, great entry level 1911, get one before the prices kept on going up. I like Bud's Gun Shop however, is Bud's Staff the ones making the difference they are GREAT !!!!!

Keep Up The Good Work

Thank You

Great little gun, and shoots as well as my friends Kimber. Only hiccup was a worn magazine catch and the finish. Replaced the catch and it's now flawless.

This is the third gun I have purchased from Bud's, and won't be my last! Because I have another RIA tact 5" .45 that is tight and accurate, I knew what to expect when I ordered this pistol. A tight, quality product for the best price anywhere! Bud's is the best!
I received this pistol in 4 days and have absolutely loved it. At the range this handgun feels and shoots as good as some others that are double and triple the price! I have had no problems of any kind after shooting 150 rounds through it. At ten yards freestyle, I can keep a 3" group, and that is in my opinion all anyone could ask for from a compact!
After testing the pistol, I did change the trigger to a Nighthawk Custom aluminum 3 hole profile cut out with a little longer reach, which is best for me, and put Raasco thin grips and bushings which are more suitable for CC.
Bud's description as "blue" finish is incorrect, as it is a black parkerized finish as listed on Armscor website, and the mags are 7 round Act-Mag with bumpers, not six round.
Bottom line is, would I recommend this gun, absolutely Yes!

This gun is pure junk. I have put 200 rounds though it and it has failed to extract every single round. I called to make a warranty claim with Armscore and they said it will take them 4 weeks to try to repair the gun and ship it back to me. I don't mind a gun with a break in period but to FTE on every single round that is put through it. Its not the ammo, i tried it in a Kimber. Its not the magazines, I used wilson combat, the mags the gun came and 3 other types of magazines that guys at the range were willing to let me borrow for a second to see if they would work. Most of the mags would just fall out after the shot even when they were properly seated. I have never purchased a gun from this company before but I will never purchase one again if this is the kind of product they put out. The one star rating is to much.
