Excellent firearm! Came very quick from Buds, cleaned and took to range. Pistol worked flawlessly with no failures at all. I highly recommend. Only came with one magazine though. No problem, bought more. Buds has done great for me again. Best prices and service.

This is an all-steel commander-length 45 ACP made in the Philippines by S.A.M. It is a cast frame and mim parts, but it is almost a faithful reproduction of a spec Colt 1911 commander. Staked plunger tube and extractor. The finish is parkerized, and came packaged covered in oil in a heat-sealed bag in a cheap hard-plastic clamshell case. Out of the box, (after cleaning) it is 100% functional and even has a decent trigger. All safeties work, but the thumb safety is a bit stiff. That would probably have smoothed out on its own, but I polished it and shortened the plunger spring a coil and now it it perfect. The rcoil spring seems a bit weak, but that should be tuned to your load anyway. The grips are wood and damn ugly. The sights are fixed and GI style. Upgrading the sights to Novak or LPA will require milling the slide if you want good ones. It is a bare-bones military style 1911 in commander length and if that is what you want, here it is, but be cautious. After a complete detail disassembly and inspection, I ended up replacing the disconnector, which was over polished and too short , and one of the grip screw bushings, which was boogerred upon installation. The M/S housing pin is mislocated slightly, but that has no consequence unless you want to change it, perhaps for one with a magwell.. Some of the parts seem a bit soft, but overall it seems to be a good start for a project gun as it is complete gun for the price of a bare frame from the standard suppliers like Caspian or STI. For the price, this is an impressive buy. The quality is on par with Rock Island, which makes sense, but it is even cheaper. I plan on modding this gun extensively, including bobtailing the frame and flat-topping the slide. The quality of the metallurgy, and thus the lifespan of the piece remains to be seen. Just a word of caution. If you are knowledgeable and familiar with 1911\'s, and you plan to completely go through this thing, you could use it as a carry piece. If you just want to have a 1911 for a range toy, it is OK, but it isn\'t as smooth and pretty as a higher-end gun. If you just think carrying a 1911 is cool, and aren\'t familiar and proficient with the system, don\'t get this.

First order from Bud's. Fast and easy. Shipped quickly. Thanks! The first one of these I received shot about three inches low at seven yards. Ended up sending it back to ATI. They responded promptly to my problem with a pre-paid shipping label. Seven weeks later received a new one. At the range today it was awesome. Right on target. This thing shoots very tight groups. For the price I'm pretty satisfied. The machining on this is just incredible for the cost. No burrs. No chatter marks. Nice surface finishes. This thing is tight too. Now, I just need to get out with my buddy with the $1200 SIG 1911 and show him what you can get for less than $400. Thanks Bud's! Thanks ATI!

Ordered on 4/6 and received pistol on 4/11. Pleasantly surprised to find pistol in a lockable plastic box with foam padding, a cable lock, one 8 rd mag, a package of gun lube and all paper work. Pistol was sealed in plastic bag. Lubed but not flooded. (Big improvement over oil soaked cardboard box and bag of chips and cutting fluid) Took home and cleaned and lubed, off to the range with my son and grandsons. Ran approximately 175 rounds, of FMJ 230gn, hollow point 230gn, lead round nose 185gn, and even some hollow point 200gn with NO FTFs, NO FTEs, NO Jams, NO problems at all! Except running out of time to shoot. I brought one Chip McCormick 7 rd mag to replace the factory unit if it was trash. Could tell no difference in feeding or drop between the two. The only issue I had was some dinged cases and some case damage done by the ejector. At approx 20 yds, on a 18\" square bulls eye target patterns of 3\" to 4\" spread, by me, my son and grandsons were easily obtained. Hits were a little low but dead on L to R. Sights were more than acceptable. After reading all the horror stories about ATI and the terrible experiences on range trips I finally decided to take a chance as this was the only Commander size pistol that I could afford. This pistol is not a Kimber but could I have shot better with a $2500 pistol vs my $400 pistol? I doubt it. Often the tool is only as good as the craftsman using it. Would I recommend this gun to others? To a novice who thinks that a expensive weapon automatically makes you a better shot? No. To an experience shooter who knows his or her own limitations and is looking for a basic, good quality, low cost pistol? YES! All in all a great gun, Great Bud experience, fast shipping, and a ton of fun Thank you Buds!
