TISAS Classic 1911-A1 45ACP 5" GI BLACK
by Rocky S Date Added: Sunday 17 March, 2013
This is a couple of 'firsts' for me... first purchase from Bud's and first 1911.

First off, dealing with Bud's was great. Easy transaction and fast shipping. I was able to track it to the door of my FFL within a couple of days. I ordered it on a Thursday and it was at my FFL on Monday... and Tuesday. My FFL wasn't there to receive it Monday but UPS got it done Tuesday and I was able to arrange picking it up later in the week.

As for the gun, it looks and feels great. Yes, it had a lot of oil on it, enough so that the hammer strike would squirt a little into the air but considering this thing has traveled halfway across the globe, I consider that a plus. It is not like I wasn't going to take it down and clean it anyway. After getting it apart, everything looks great inside. No machining marks, tight and good tolerances. Very well built. The slide to frame and bushing to barrel fit was great. I have taken it out back and ran several mags through, both factory ammo and reloads and it shoots and runs well. The sights are hard to see for my old eyes but the 1911 has such a natural point of aim, I consider this the original 'point and click interface'.

The 1911 is just such a classic gun and I know this will only be my first one but I could not have asked for a better start and for the money, I doubt it can be beat for such a low price. Thanks Bud's!
