So I bought this expecting a low level 1911 due to the reviews I had seen online. I am surprised to find that the quality is even better than expected even after seeing some of the positive reviews. The downsides to this pistol were suppose to be the sights, the heavy trigger, and the bite due to the lack of a smooth beaver tail. I disagree with both the sights and the trigger pull. I find that the pistol has an appropriate trigger pull and the break is not crisp like a competition gun but is very nice compared to some of my more expensive ones. I do tend to agree that the pistol can bite into you on the backstrap but it is not bad. If you plan on firing a few hundred rounds through then it will probably leave a mark in the webbing between your thumb and index finger. I got this gun for function and it definitely performs. Any ammo, any weather, any conditions and it will both chamber and fire. On a side note... This is an excellent platform for anyone who would want a 1911 to customize. All parts are mil-spec and can be swapped out for updated parts. I personally wanted a replica of what our Soldiers used for the two greatest wars we won, which is exactly what this is, so I will not change a thing. But if someone wanted an inexpensive starting point to make the ultimate 1911 then this is probably the best starting point for the cost. The slide to frame fit is very good as well as the barrel bushing. I have zero play in mine on the barrel and very minimal on the slide. I don't know if the factory retooled but I noticed very little tool mars throughout. I saw a few videos where they showed some closeups and there were marks on the inside. Mine has none. It literally looks and feels like an $800 pistol. I would highly recommend this to anyone who is looking to get a basic 1911 and personalize it. This would be a perfect platform that is truly mil-spec. I would also recommend this to anyone like myself that collects and wants something that is a replica to the original. I would NOT recommend this to someone who wants a race gun and cannot do some simple upgrades. This pistol can most definitely be a race gun but it will take a lot of upgrading. If a person is good with tools then they could definitely do it at a budget using this as a starter point. For those looking for defensive reasons... You will need to get an extended mag release unless you have ginormous hands. Other than that it will eat any ammo you put into it and will not malfunction. If you read the history of the 1911 then you will see it was put into service over a couple other competitors because of the reliability. This is probably the closest thing to the original that you can get new. I personally love it but have some trouble with my stubby fingers on the mag release. I want to keep this thing as close to the original as possible but will probably end up with an extended mag release. That is the only thing I will probably change about the gun.

Ordered the 1911 on Saturday, delivered to my dealer on Wednesday. Have put about 100 rounds through the weapon. Not one issue so far. Wish my Colt 1911 functioned as well as this one. I may get the A-2 model next.

Wow, wow, and wow again !! A little of my history with the 1911... My first experience with the 1911 was with a Lama. I would borrow that Lama from a friend and go to the range. I liked that pistol, although it did introduce me to hammer bite! Then I purchased a 1911 from Springfield and competed in IPSC. The 1911 with it's single action trigger, perfect grip angle, thin body and instinctive point-aiming just can not be beat. When I first heard about the Zig M from Tisas I wanted one! Over the past 23 years I have watched the price of firearms go up and up, I always wondered why we didn't have less expensive, decent quality firearms? I realize there are many less expensive options on the market for firearms, Hi-Point, Kel Tec, RIA, to name a few and of course Tisas. I got the pistol today and took it directly to the range. GREAT pistol. Works exactly like a 1911 should. I would HIGHLY recommend this pistol to any person thinking of buying their first 1911 or anyone who just wants a 1911 for their collection. Always remember, this is a 1911 and so that is exactly how if fires and feels. If you want that light weight, lower recoil and different controls then go buy a Glock or S&W M&P. This my fellow gun lovers is a 1911A1 which set the standard for automatic pistol for over 100 years! I would also like to mention that this is my first online firearm transaction, thus my first transaction from Buds. 100% on both accounts. Thank you Buds.

Of course Buds has a great shipping and tracking system got my firearm asap. Firearm looks and feels great. Can\'t go wrong with the 1911. I love the way these shoot and how low the price is. I like the Tisas. Thank you.

Finally got to take my new Tisas to the range. A couple of problems chambering a new round in the first few clips, after that things worked better. I am an old man (72) and shot some very tight groups at 15 and 20 feet. Got to do something about the sights, some white finger nail polish on the front sight may be the answer. Over all a great value and am very happy with my purchase, the service and overall experience.
