So, as I am a relatively new collector but long time shooter, I have always wanted a 1911. I finally got my taxes in and checked on Bud\'s and lo and behold this beauty was on sale for 350.00. I didn\'t hesitate, and jumped all over it. Man, let me tell you, I am so glad I did. This gun is the real deal. Reminds me of shooting my dad\'s old GI issued 1911 from Vietnam when I was a kid. It\'s pure steel, and built like a tank. There is no play in the fit of the slide to the frame. The spring is not too stiff and not too weak. Short guide rod. Barrel is cold hammer forged (from what I have been able to find out doing research). Action is smooth after cleaning off the factory lubricant and applying Ballistol. The factory mahogany grips are nice, but because I am a geek I changed em out with some custom Punisher grips. Looks awesome, by the way. Gun shoots great. Operationally no complaints. Factory mag is alright but I went ahead and bought two Chip McCormick mags (8rd) and one Wilson Combat (7rd) to go along with it at my FFL. Gun\'s fixed sights are only issue. Prints low when aiming on target. Have to aim over target or tilt gun up some in hand which causes some irritation from the beaver tail. Put about 150 rounds through it at the range, and dang, this thing is a nail driver once you compensate for the low print. Shot some Armscor FMJ (very accurate) and some Winchester white box bulk ammo (noticed a few more fliers when using it). Hollowed out the bullseye on target at 10 yards after getting used to the gun. Amazing. Can\'t believe I waited this long to get a 1911. It\'s no Colt, don\'t get me wrong, but man, if you want a 1911 and are on a budget this gun feel like it should be worth twice the money. Little about the manufacturer I found out, and history of the 1911 in the Philippines in general: Apparently after Vietnam we sold tons of surplus 1911\'s to the government down there. They have been standard issue to their military and police since then and are still used to this day. As a result, the 1911 became one of the most popular firearms in the country. Many companies sprung up making clones of the actual US Govt surplus guns that were floating around. The civilian market for 1911\'s continues to be lucrative down there today. So you get very well made copies of the workhorse government 1911\'s from back in the day for great prices. These guns are fantastic. They are actually really high quality and extremely well put together. Verdict: Highly recommended purchase. Great gun, great quality, fantastic price. Reliable. Great base platform for a project gun, or just to take out of box and strap on your hip.

Wow, what to say. Not only was the price excellent: near $400, but had the gun in hand by the second day after ordering. I am extremely impressed with ATI quality on this firearm. I've owned several Colt 1911's including the more recent Tieriii. There is no plastic or aluminum on this gun, (magnet check). The gun performs well. Thanks again Bud, great transaction.

This by far is the most used handgun I own and at a great price in Buds, I would put this 1911 up against competitors for accuracy. Thank you Buds once again for an amazing gun buying experience

This pistol is fantastic. A pure steel WW II clone. I bought this pistol anticipating that I would customize it and make it into a target shooter. Even talked to my gunsmith about adjustable sights, new barrel, hammer change etc. First 200 rounds gun was spot on target, 2-3 inch groups at 20-25 yards. Of course even better at 15-20 yards. Not one flaw, misfire or stovepipe perfect ejection and feeding on all 200. Mag holds 8 without problem. It is one of the best high quality, well made guns found at a low end cost mark. Delivered in a plain brown box, no documentation or manual but sealed in a plastic air tight bag. Gun was filthy with wet manufactures’ grease. I cleaned it well and over oiled for first shooting. Good idea. Fittings are all tight with perfect slide to frame action. The only downside was buying from Buds. Thought I would probably never use them again because of slow processing. The jury is still out on that one. They didn’t ship gun for 8 business days although I know payment (e-check) was cleared in 24 hours. Customer service did nothing to help expedite. I hear now this is SOP for them. I am however so pleased with the gun it may have made up for their bad behavior. And they do offer a lifetime warranty…+++

This is my first 1911 so I am no expert but for the price of this gun you would expect much less. This gun seems to be well built, we'll put together and after about 100 rounds mixing brass case and aluminum case ammo no jams or issues at all. Shoots just as accurate as my Glock out of the box. I field stripped after shooting and it is typical 1911 dissembly. I would highly recommend this gun to anyone looking for a first 1911 or a budget 1911 that can be upgraded.
