    Hi guys!

    Need your advice please.

    Someone is selling me a standard 1911 45 cal for P50,000.

    It is brand new. It looks very nice, the slide is blued, the frame is matte black. Ibang klase yung mga sights, yung front meron luminous dark orange (is this the optic something?). Naka pachmyr yung grips.

    We tested it at the range, and it was quite impressive! At 7 meters, 3 inches ang grouping ko with 10 rounds (extended mccormick yung mag). Smooth and light yung trgger pull. More importantly, walang jam thru a box of armscor fmj.

    Pero it is not branded. Walang tatak yung slide, as in blank talaga on both sides.

    What is this? Is this locally made? Is this a good buy? Please advise.

    Maraming salamat sa payo.

    Gumagalang,
    Mao.

    PS. Manigong bagong taon sa lahat ng pistoleros!

    is it licensed? if it is licensed, check the "make" of the pistol on the license card.

    not licensed. the seller is a government guy, nahiya akong tanungin the details of the gun. all he tells me is that he had it assembled and he doesnt know the details.

    Buyer Beware!

    Here's a scenario. A person sells you two pairs of jeans. One is branded, the other is not. Even if the branded pair of jeans is just a Jag or Freego, I'll buy it over the non-branded pair of jeans.

    For P50,000, you could buy a Norinco or an Armscor, and still have money to "dress it up."

    Just my two cents.;)
     
  5. Very true. For an unbranded gun, the price is quite stiff. A Norc SS sells for around P15 thou only. Ditto for the Armscor.

    Wait for the gun show. For P50 thou you could get very good guns in the 1911 platforms.

    Ooops! Could be an issue gun that was defaced. As I mentioned in my previous reply, P50,000 could get you a Norinco or an Armscor and still lots of extra money to "dress up" your 1911.

    Another thing that you should be wary about this guy is that he said that "he had it assembled, and he doesn't know the details." Aww, come on. He should tell his story to someone else.

    This is my .45 caliber Imperial Defence 1911A1 Ranger. I just used the frame.

    Sold the complete upper and stock frame parts to horge for 3500 pesos mid last year.

    I changed the upper assembly with an STI Slide, Schuemann barrel, bomar rear and fiber optic front sights. Majority of the internals are Ed Brown, Wilson, McCormick and STI parts. Finished in Black chrome.

    Total cost of this custom project pistol did not cost me an arm and a leg in 2004.

  8. I agree with the BOGs, Just get a Rinco,RIA or an ARMSCOR if you are in a hurry and on a budget. Then gradualy upgrade the "vital" parts of the gun as it wears out. If not just get the parts that you want and have a competent smith fix it for ya. In the long run the last option will save ya a lot of bling:) . You also said the item is unmarked naku ala eh baka "hot item". Ingat baka ma paso ka kabayan.

    I agree with all the advice before me. For 50k, you can have the same pistol customized to your own liking, down to the last detail. Get a Nork and have all the slide markings removed if you prefer a blank slide.

    Malabo yata yung sya nagpa-assemble tapos di nya alam. This fact alone raises a red flag in my book.

    Nice gun, Doc!

    +1 on the BOGs' advice ...too fishy ...P50K is too high for an "unbranded" gun. I think with P50K, you can already get a well-dressed 1911 about a couple of years ago. Custom upper parts used to cost about P30-35.

    instead of buying a single stack .45 go get a hi-cap .40 cal pistol like a Para Ordnance, STI, SVI or SPS.

    I would stay away from getting the markings removed from the slide. I thinks it's against FED rules. Fellow BOGs, any insights on this?

    Correct me if I'm wrong. Do dealers submit a stencil of your gun including the manufacturers' stamps/logo and serial number to the FED? Would this affect your license if you alter these features on the gun?

    that's a good point. they probably submit a stencil of the manufacturer's proofs and other markings as well.

    but the procedure i saw during the re-registration of loose FA's during this year's amnesty, they only get a stencil copy of the SN, like when you register your car at LTO. the manufacturer and all other markings are not included. its just typed/written down in the application form.

    going back to the thread topic, mao, that is at best a questionable unit and consider getting a brand new pistol instead. for 50k or a little more, you'll have a very nice 1911 pistol to your specs

    hey mao, thats very expensive. I got a para ord stainless p14-45
    for P45k only last year, branded pa. I suggest you wait for a better
    gun to come by, madami dyan.
     
  18. That gun seems to be the most expensive PALTIK.45:) Ingat lang kabayan nagkalat ang mga paltik na Quarenta y singko ngayon and can easily deceive the untrained eye. Minsan under/oversize ang mga pin holes and worst part of it duling ang mga butas.;g

    Out of topic button -
    I used to have Armscor in 9mm minus the Armscor stamp because I had it removed when I bought it. I was able to sell and tranfer it without any problem from FED.
