    Armscor in Philipines if I'm not mistaken. Quality from what I've heard is about the same as Rock Island (which makes it a pretyy decent gun). Finish is better IMO. Also, all the models I've seen had decent sights with a Novak-style rear (haven't seen any GI style models).

    Built in the Philippines by Armscor, who also builds RIA and the old Charles Daly models, among others. Good pistols.

    You don't find 1911s built in the USA for under $500.

    As far as a budget 1911 they're pretty solid. As others mentioned they are not U.S. made, which may or may not be a contributing factor for you. You may want to check out one of the 1911 forums for some additional background on the Armscor-made 1911s. I've never owned one, but the general consensus is that they are a pretty good pistol for the money.

    I've got an RIA 1911-A1 and another one from the Philippines a Metro Arms AC II Deluxe. I like them both. The ACII is a step up from the straight government issue but both shoot quite well and never had any problems.
