Does anyone know about the 1911 on the first page of the CDNN catalog for $349...make...junk...etc?
I don't know what it is. Would make a good truck gun.
I think it is a Turkish gun had some fairly good reviews.
Or maybe a RI?
Hey it SAYS "1911 A-1" so I would imagine it is GTG....
Dubious at best.
Saw that when got it in mail yesterday, was wondering about it too. If anyone gets one let us know.
I am going to go with Umarex.. I tried calling but its kinda lat on a sat eve.. I will call again on Monday.. I am kinda curious now..
I am a real novice smith...and have done a couple of cheap 1911's...don't mind on a cheap gun...especially if it is mil-spec.
Like the 1911 and enjoy modifying. with better internals.
I read on another board it's the Turkish Regent. I may not of spelled that right and that's hearsay from another forum. The fact CDNN doesn't say who makes it is enough to scare me off.
I'm actually more interested in the Browning 325WSM shown on the next page...
Some here underestimate Turkish firearms. I believe that some here are fans of H&K at the same time. They are connected I believe. I've read of a Turkish company that has some the most advanced machining capabilities in the world. Many H&K parts are manufactured by them I believe. I cannot remember the company name but have owned a shotgun made by them under their own name. Great defensive shotgun that cost peanuts. It's all about specifications in todays manufactuering world. Quality is not "where" it's made, but "how" it's made. My senile old brain cannot remember the Turkish companies name - just the general info in the article a few years back.
Liked this too...save a fortune on ammo:
I have an R100 and although its been nothing but reliable, the slide to frame fit became very loose in no time. It rattles like a gun that's had 100,000 rounds through it even though its only been a few thousand. I would say that at about round 500 is where it got pretty loose.
For a beater or gun to tinker with I would say go for it but I personally wouldn't buy another. It is nice to have a beater version of your favorite platform though.
Thanks for the review!
I'll add that I changed pretty much everything out of the Regent over time. Hammer/sear/disconnector/leaf spring/hammer spring are now C&S, trigger opening in the frame was not finished well so fitting a new trigger took longer than usual, the safety is just some random extended type I had laying around so I threw in a stainless slide stop to match, fit the Ed Brown grip safety and rounded the frame tangs by hand without a jig , swapped the sights with something a tad better than the G.I. type, slightly extended ejector and tweaked the stock extractor, oversized firing pin stop since the stock one let the extractor clock over on occasion and grips plus screws.
I basically had all this stuff in my parts bin and decided it would be a little side project to make my beater as good as it can be to suit my needs. If left stock the R100 will run fine and if the one at CDNN is indeed an R100 and they improved it a tad since my model then that is one heck of a deal. I said I would never buy another but if it was sitting at my LGS for $350...I mean, why not? :embarassed:
I bought an Armscor 4-5 years ago and traded all the internals out and it has a lot of rounds through it...for a $300 gun at the time...it is a very good shooter!
I have carried before but prefer to just shoot and say proficient on the 1911...
can not say a bad word about the gun.
It could be made by Shooters Arms Mfg. (S.A.M.) in the Phillipines.
The email blasts I have gotten on it say "#IAC1911A1BK $349.99"
Makes me think it is an IAC Regent.
I like my Regent quite a bit.
The front to back of the grip is also longer than a standard 1911. I own 7 other brands of 1911s and I felt it as soon as I gripped the R100. Using my micrometer and putting them side by side with my other models confirmed it.
Bac, with your extensive collection I'm wondering if you felt it as well.
