TISAS Classic 1911-A1 45ACP 5" GI BLACK
by Kevin V Date Added: Saturday 26 January, 2013
This is my third 1911, already having a Kimber Pro CDP II, and a Colt Government Model. With those to compare to, the Tisas truly holds its own.

The gun was well oiled for its transatlantic trip and came in a foam padded, plastic box. It included literature, spent cartridge, one 8-round Mec-Gar magazine, a nice cleaning cloth, a bore brush, and a cleaning rod for patches. Other than being messy the gun passed the cursory inspection at the FFL.

I thoroughly cleaned the pistol when I got it home and installed a pair of OD green Hogue rubber grips and a Wilson Combat Shok-Buff recoil buffer. After applying a couple drops of oil and gun grease to the required areas we headed to the range.

We shot 100 rounds of PMC FMJ ammo using the included Mec-Gar magazine, as well as the following mags..8-round Chip McCormick PowerMag+, 8-round Wilson Combat, 7-round Kimber, and 7-round Colt. In the first 20 rounds there were two instances (once while my wife was shooting, and once for my daughter) using the McCormick and Wilson Combat mags where the slide locked to the rear with rounds still in the mag. Accuracy was very good. The sights don't need adjusted and the grouping is excellent.

I'm very happy with this 1911. I had hoped for a good pistol based on the reviews but was cautious about having high expectations. It was a very good purchase that I'm glad I took a chance on. It's worth every bit of the $399 Buds is selling it for. As a side note, I watched a Turkish video of a man shooting a Tisas. He pronounced the last s as "sh". Phonetically the name is pronounced (tee-sosh) with a short "o".
