No FTF or FTE. Very stiff recoil spring. Would be difficult for a woman to rack. Workmanship a little rough.

I have both the .45 and 9mm of this 1911 platform. Solid pistols. I have put 1000 round through both. No real problems. A couple F2F but I use cheaper factory 2nd ammo. When I shoot the expensive rounds it's very smooth, no issues. It's heavy but I like that. For this price point I honestly don't think it gets any better.

Oustanding 1911-Tisas 1911-A1
This is an outstanding 1911 even for more money, so it's a great bargain for the price. I put a set of Pachmayr grips on it right out of the box(just because I like those grips on all my 1911's), but no other modifications. It shot flawlessly right from the start. Sub 2inch groups at 20 yards right out of the box.
I've put hundreds of rounds through this gun and have not had a single malfunction. Use good quality ammo. Cheap ammo gives you what you paid for.
The fit, finish and quality are much better than I expected for an inexpensive foreign made handgun. I was pleasantly surprised. Excellent 1911!

I am a huge 1911 fan and for my money I like to get the best bang for my buck. I like inexpensive products that work or even surpass their more expensive counter parts. That's what the Tisas 1911's do. They surpass most if not all other 1911's in their price range. The fit and finish is great, the quality of parts they use are great. They shoot great and they are easy to customize. I would give Tisas a 6 star rating if I could, they are just that good. Once again Buds came through with a great product at a great price and as always great service.

The gun has so far been flawless. Perfect operation every time If used it. It's balanced well, the fit and finish are GREAT, and it's accurate right out of the box. I also have the .45 of this model, but haven't fired it yet. Im expecting NOTHING less than what I got with the 9mm. A great value at a great price. You can't go wrong with this pistol.

This pistol was bought specifically to shoot steel case Russian ammo. We were experiencing 8% failure to fire with striker fired guns of every manufacture. Glocks were the worst but all the others had the same problem. We tried a BHP and behold, NO probs. That hammer was whacking those deep seated hard primers with authority and all went BANG! Saw this bought it for $375 delivered. I like the finish on this pistol it will not make finger prints and cleans right off. The trigger was off my scale at above 12 pounds. I fixed all the small thing I needed to after I shot 500 rounds through it to make sure it was going to function. From the first shot til today ther has never been 1 FTL, FTF, FTE or eject. AND no failure to fire. We have a lot of men shooting on this range and shooting a lot of different ammo, this cheap blaster just keeps on going. Anyway, that's what happened here. Just as a side note, we had a Kimber stainless Target in 9mm that COULD NOT BE MADE to work. We spent as much on Wilson and other assorted mags trying to get it to work that we could have paid for this little Tisas. It's your money, spend it the way you want but these things WORK!!

Just picked up my Tisas and headed straight to the range. I put 45 rounds through it and only had one FTL. It could be the mag as some have said. As far as the sights, can't really tell without locking the gun down but I had a pretty decent pattern and feel confident that should the need arise to defend myself that the gun will perform well. The gun feels tight and looks great. Happy purchase! As usual, Buds got the gun to me quick. I already have my next order on layaway.
