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.
