Ran about 350 thru this pistol on it's first outing, right from the box. Accurate, easy to shoot, no malfunctions except a dud primer. Good to go on that score. Some light machining marks visible thru the finish, not a big deal considering price point, and far better overall fit and finish than anything in its price range, except for ruger. Excellent trigger out of the box, as good as some customs. Mags both function flawlessly, and the pistol runs mccormicks and springfields without issue. Tthe whole pistols feels a tiny bit rough, but i believe that's because it hasn't been worn in. Slide serrations are good, mainspring housing is, thankfully, sharply checkered, and overall grip is outstanding despite the smooth frontstrap on the grip. Slide fitment is very good, exceptionally smooth for the price of the pistol. If i have a complaint, i suppose it's the grip panel screws' installation. After its first range day, grip panels had loosened up. Tiny dab of thread locker and good to go, seems they were just barely snugged down at the assembly plant. Overall, great pistol. Absolutely outstanding for the price point.

Pains me to leave a 3* review. Really wanted to love this gun. Buds was very helpful--answered my questions about price matching, and communicated clearly when/how this would be shipped. The gun is gorgeous, and feels great in the hand. I don\'t know what MRI was thinking with the huge rollmark--that\'s annoying, but I knew it was on there when I ordered it, so whatever. It\'s tacky, and it means that I have to put up with wise-cracks every time I bust it out, but it\'s fine. Overall, it\'s a good looking gun. Everything fits super tight. ...But maybe too tight. I got this in December, and it was cold. When I got it, I cleaned the bore, and took it out to my outdoor range. First session was good. Bullseye on the first shot from 15 yards. I don\'t believe I had any issues. I left it in my car for a few hours before taking it over to a fellow gun-nut friend to show it off. As I say, it was December, so it was very cold. By the time I got it out of my car at my pal\'s, the gun was very cold. I don\'t know if temperature was a factor but I assumed it was: I\'m showing it to my buddy, and the slide is moving very slowly (draw it back, release it, and it returns at about half the speed that it should). \"The lube is probably cold?\" I guess. Take it back out to the range. Now it is partially feeding ammo (failing to completely return to battery), every 5th round or so. Can\'t get through a magazine. I\'ve got Hornady, Geco, Sellier & Bellot, and Wolf ammo. Choice of ammo does not affect it. The bullet partially enters the chamber, but the slide doesn\'t make it back to battery. It stops about 1/2 inch short. I strip it, clean it, lube it, reassemble. Bring it back to the range: same issue. I\'m at 500 rounds through it, and the problem is not getting any better. I can likely fix it with a heavier recoil spring, I imagine. I can send it off to MRI. But it\'s a brand new gun. It gets three stars because I think it will be fixable, and because it feels good. But it doesn\'t WORK, and there\'s no reason for that. I absolutely could not rely on this gun to save my life, and that really grinds me gears. Other minor things: the case is poorly designed. It only has a slot for one magazine. It comes with two magazines, which is nice. But that means that if you want to have both of your magazines in the case, you have to have either an empty one in the magazine well, or a loaded one. Personally, I would prefer to have a loaded magazine handy in the case, but not actually in the well (I don\'t like storing loaded guns, but I don\'t want to have to drop a mag AND THEN slap in a mag if I actually needed the thing). Didn\'t factor this into my rating, just find it to be a stupid design. I also personally don\'t like the white-ish trigger. It should be black. But that\'s just an aesthetic thing. Again, didn\'t factor into my rating, I just think it would look better if it were black.

Awesome pistol. Buds of course delivery was excellent and ahead of schedule. Desert Eagle is know for its .50, but this 1911 should be given credit. I have owned other 1911 models such as Kimber and Wilson Combat and I would put this 1911c up there with them. Superior quality, sleek looking, and performs just as good if not better. I have put about 250 rounds through it and it ran flawlessly. My only complaint was the picture showed Rosewood grips and mine came gray. Will replace. For that I knocked it down a star.

I've had my new Desert Eagle 1911C for a couple weeks now and its an outstanding firearm. As other reviews have said, the trigger is by far the best trigger pull on any gun anywhere near this price point that I've ever owned. I love it! I highly recommend this weapon to anyone looking for an affordable 1911. For the price, I don't think there's another 1911 on the market that comes close to this gun. The gun was shipped from Buds to my local FFL with upgraded VZ Operator II grips, which was a pleasant surprise. All for $600! If you're in the market for a 1911 under $800, do yourself a favor and get the Desert Eagle!

I just recently bought the Desert eagle 1911C and put a few dozen rounds through the pistol without any issues at all. Mine did have some inconsistency in the finish, the slide stop seemed to be more satin and the blueing on the safety looked spotty, not really a major problem but worth mentioning. The gun is tight without any wiggle trigger has some slop or take up but is light for a out of box config. Overall I like the 1911c it\'s a solid shooter and worth considering. Fairly sure it is manufactured by bull not IMI-IWI like I had initially thought. Bought it from buds and it was shipped without delay.

Very happy with my purchase. Buds offers the quality customer service consistent with my history with them. The firearm arrived quickly and the initial inspect reveled no concerns. I planned on doing typical upgrades prior to shoot (polishing ramp and installation of other various "needed" 1911 upgrades) but did not to test the firearm "out of the box." After the initial cleaning, my first time out at the range with it yielded no failures with over 250 rounds. I used multiple different magazines including the (2) supplied stock, ProMags and Wilsons. Ammo was combination of Gold Dot, multiple reloads (LAX, Freedom, and others), and Winchester white box. Trigger was excellent and sights were dialed in. I would not hesitate to purchase another one.
