Made in Turkey. Just like High Standard .45s. Good? Well stock but will need real parts from Brownell's or other quality vendor. Its not a Colt, Wilson, or Kimber but does send lead down range.

Re: ati 1911?

yea i figured for the price i may as well buy it and after a couple hundred round replace alot of the internals. for a hundred or so and still come out way cheaper.

Re: ati 1911?

Yep, having just spent almost $900 on a mint Series 70 Colt I can understand. A friend did that with a High Standard. I can't remember where I saw the list, maybe Combat Handguns, but I saw a list of the parts to replace along with part numbers from Brownell's. I think we're look at parts that are cast, hammer, maybe sear, etc. It seemed like it wouldn't be that expensive. These guns come with funneled mag wells, lowered ejection ports, and a decent finish that would be a great base for Duracoat. If you're leaning towards that a more inexpensive gun is the place to practice. Good luck. Spend the money you save on bullets.

Take a look at forum.m1911.org this I have found to be an excellent site for 1911 info.
