Mine was for $400. Haha!!!

The stocks are nasty wood, but hey, the gun is dirt cheap. The sights are not GI style though. Basic, but definitely not GI. I don't have an issue with the iron sights at all. No problems with sight alignment and no problems with quick pick up in any lighting condition.

Frankly, I can't believe the gun is so inexpensive. I think I paid $402. In fact, the fit is better than other 1911's that cost twice as much. Mine has been 100% reliable out of the box and surprisingly very accurate. On the negative side, I'm not a big fan of the stock grips or the standard GI sights....both easy fixes. IMO, these ATI's are a absolute bargain.
