    Place around here is selling NIB:

    Hi-Standard 1911
    Blue - Basic model
    $420 (normally $480)

    Stainless - Basic model
    $440 (normally $500)

    Yes I know they are not top of the line 1911s. I already have a Kimber and a Springfield. Just wondering if there have a rep as being OK guns, or as jam-o-matics that won't hold 18" at 25 yards :)

    AFAIK, the Hi-Standards are simply rebranded Armscor (like RIA, but with considerably less exposure). I would expect it to perform similarly. If that blued model is simply a standard GI style , then you can get the RIA cheaper and the price really isn't anything special. Is it really blued or just a black finished or a dark parkerizing?

    Same for the "stainless." Just make sure it actually is stainless and not some brushed chrome of nickel finish. I wasn't aware Armscor made stainless 1911s.
