Very impressed the feel and accuracy of the firearm. After over 500 rounds, no issues with any ammo used. Solid buy for a first time 1911 to get the feel of them. I do prefer the looks new style with the logo near the back of the slide.

So we all know this is more of a low budget 1911 and I expected as such. However I have to say the only thing low budget about it, and they only complaint we had was the magazine. It has a square bottom with sharp edges and sticks out beyond the butt of the gun. It likes to get snagged on clothing. However magazine aside this is one nice firearm. It shoots great with nice manageable recoil. Sights are accurate I was able to hit the gong at about 85 yards on the second shot. Reloading was a breeze although as most guns are it is easier to load 7 than 8. I wish they would perfect the plate end of the mag better and maybe I can find some other mags that will work better. I was going to carry this, but the mag just makes it uncomfortable. Breakdown and cleaning and reassembly is easy as expected. Also I would love to see them get rid of the grip safety, but that is just my preference. Overall this is worthy of 5 stars based upon value for money spent.

The gun functions perfectly and the wooden grip is beautiful. But the grip safety has turned orange with rust.

Good quality for an entry level 1911. No problems yet. No break in period was needed like some of the other less expensive 1911. Good deal for the price.

I picked up this 1911 several months ago. It's been a fantastic gun. I've never had any malfunctions, even during the first 500 rounds I sent through it. It's been rock solid since I've had it. I've carried it, it's ridden in my truck and it has a place in my police unit when I'm at work. At the time I purchased it, Bud's was offering it at an outstanding low price and shipping was fast as usual. Thanks for another great weapon Bud's!
