TISAS Classic 1911-A1 45ACP 5" GI BLACK
by Craig C Date Added: Monday 28 January, 2013
Just received the Tisas 1911 a few days ago. Ordered on Jan 16th, using credit card, and it was delivered to my FFL on Jan 25, so all in all, not too bad considering that everything in the industry is completely overwhelmed at this point.

For the handgun itself, this is a fine weapon. Very tight construction and obviously manufactured very well from the look and feel of things. Everything just seems put together nicely. I replaced the "plain" wooden grips with a Pachmayr grips which look and feel great, Cleaned the weapon thoroughly as there was a lot of oil from the manufacturer. The hard case included the same accessories as others mentioned, 8-round Mag, cleaning cloth, bore brush, patch rod, and the shell casing from the ballistics registration shot. Nothing fancy. I was finally able to put some rounds through it last night, so I loaded a Chip McCormack Mag 10 rounder with filthy Tul-ammo 230gr FMJ and fired the entire magazine with no issues. Accuracy from about 15 yards was decent, hitting all but two within a 3" circle, but I wasn't really focusing on accuracy, just trying to get a feel for the trigger. Trigger is a little heavier than my SA-XDM45, which is my "go-to" gun, but it has a very nice, crisp break with very little slop. My only complaint is, like others, the sights are kind of weak. But the same as the GI 1911 I used to shoot in the Marines, so I wasn't expecting match grade sights. I will probably put a little dot of white paint on the blade just to increase visibility.

All in all, you really can't go wrong with this purchase. For $400, I doubt there is another 1911 available that is even in the ballpark as far as initial quality. I have held 1911's at twice the price and then some, which don't feel as nicely finished. I wish they would release the all Stainless model here, that would be a really nice weapon. So, am I happy? Yes! Very much so! I think with a little bit more practice, I should be able to tighten up my groups. If my first 10 rounds are an indication, this 1911 is a steal.
