One of the subjects from Irish's FFF

 

I bought one of these bad boys just prior to the "SCAMDEMIC" outbreak. It is a SDS "clone" of J.M. Browning's patent better known as the G.I. model 1911 in .45 acp. I paid $338.00 (and that included free shipping). The pistol is an exact mil-spec copy. They are made in Turkey (Tisas) and are of very good quality. They, like many popular firearms have been scarce lately as a result of "panic buying", but I've seen a few advertised as "in stock" in the last few days (J&G had them for $399 I believe). Sure there are more practical tactical pistols and much higher quality 1911's out there, but if anyone is looking for a great value in a 1911 shooter, I'd recommend buying one of these.

    2. I am not the least bit familiar with Kommiefornia gun laws. I am sure there are those out there who would be able to answer your question.

    3. Not legal in Kalifornia, and likely won't be. Ever. Here's why--

    4. That is a real sack of shit RHT447.
      I am glad you made it to Texas.
      "Laws" such as this remind us that there are no illegal guns, but only illegal governments.

  2. Haven't shot one of them yet, but did pick up a Rock Island Armory model for under 500$ that brought adjustable rear sight, beveled mag well, ambi safety, and grips with an aggressive pattern.
    Bargain does not have to be cheaply made, and an SKS, or a High Point will still go bang when the trigger is pulled.

    1. I have that same Rock Island 1911. It's my favorite handgun to shoot. Everyone I let shoot it loves it. Even my 12-year-old nephew shoots it well. There's a gunsmith in Merriam, KS, who uses the basic Rock Island 1911 to build some VERY nice customs.

  4. Many years ago I knew an elder gent who even more years ago used to compete in shooting on a regular basis at a local gun club. He said they would always have a "cheap pistol" tournament that had a price limit of $20 on the gun you could use. (this was along time ago). The lesson which I've never forgotten was that the same guys would win who won the regular competition. A good marksman can work with an inexpensive gun. Also, my observation is that there are diminishing returns on expensive firearms. A Ruger SP101 .357 Mag is nice. A Colt Python is more that twice as much is a little better and has one less round capacity. We started one of my sons girlfriends shooting shotguns with a 50 year old Savage .22/.410 over and under. She went to Cabelas with us and saw a highly customized .410 in the gun library with a $10,000+ price tag. She asked (as a total newbie) "how is better"? I said "good question".

  6. I've had one of these Turkish .45s for a few years now. Smooth as silk, and not one hang up.
