TISAS Classic 1911-A1 45ACP 5" GI BLACK
by Ian C Date Added: Sunday 24 March, 2013
Received the Tisas and was impressed with the tight fit and function. Seemed very well put together and coated in lots of protective oil. Stripped the gun down and bathed it in Mineral Spirits and scrubbed all metal parts down with a stiff bristle brush. Used air compressor to aid drying. Used CLP to coat appropriate areas and used air compressor again to get excess CLP off. Wiped down with rag and brought to the range. Shot 200 rounds through the gun. Shot Federal FMJ and Remington Golden Saber HP. Used the Mec-Gar clip and 4 diffent Chip McCormick Shooting Star Clips (2 blued and 2 stainless).

Only functioning issue noted was: 3 times upon seating the magazine, the slide had to be racked twice to get the first round to chamber. As this gun is still tight and springs very strong/stiff...this could explain the issue. There were no FTF or FTE issues, accuracy was very good and I expect it will get better as the gun continues to run.

Other issue noted post cleaning after first range trip was a chipped spot on the grip safety that made the finish look like it was just painted on. I picked at it with my fingernail and another spot came off. So finish is of very questionable quality. (Have read other reviews question finish so was expecting to see the same potential issue.)

Great functioning so far but poor finish that will likely need replacing. Will rank as a 3.5 out of 5 due to low cost of this gun. But for the purposes of the whole number rating I'll rank 3.

Rating: 3 of 5 Stars! [3 of 5 Stars!]
