  2. My only experience is with an OA Constable I have. I'm happy with it; very accurate.

    Not in this lifetime!

    Non standard parts, ugly as my ex-wife! HeJJ no!
  4. Hell no

    I don't care ffor Olympic Arms model at all.
  5. :rofl:
  6. What "non standard" parts are in these guns? Since posting this, I have yet to hear from someone who owns one that is not happy with it.
  7. Just curious as to why not? Have you owned one and had bad luck with it?

    The Scorpion is badass though. Almost as badass as The Raven. Or the gold plated Thunderbolt.
  12. stay awaaaayyyyyy from that.
  13. Have you owned or fired one? Im curious to actually hear from an owner that doesnt like them. So far everyone who has contacted me that has one or had one loved it.
  14. I would get the springfield armory loaded longslide before I got that. I do not like square trigger guards though.
  15. It is different, that is for sure. I would not bash a particular product unless I had firsthand experience with it. In this case, everyone who bashes it, has no experience with it.

    The gunsmith who builds them is Richard Niemer, a very respected 1911 gunsmith. They make very few, but those that are out there seem to be very good guns (I get this from the people who have them and relayed that information to me.)

    There's a reason why Safari Arms and now Olympic Arms have zero respect in the shooting world. But hey, don't take our words for it.

    Then buy it.
  17. My point is that they seem to have zero respect from people who never owned or even shot one. I welcome everones opinion as long as they have first hand knowledge. I find it funny how many people on here repeat what they have heard others say.

    These same people speak very highly of RIA pistols though. How do you know these pistols are not as good. They have a lifetime warranty just the same.

    Have not owned one, but have shot a Matchmaster 6
    Friend has one. Parts are non-standard. Basically they
    are not interchangeable with most all other 1911s on the planet.
    Olympic Arms as a company has a very spotty, even shady past.
    QC is poor. Stainless steel they use is subject to galling badly.
    Barrel lock up was fair, barrel bushing was so poorly fitted it
    actually rattled in the slide. Trigger was good.

    Tony's Matchmaster shot well, until he started to have issues
    with failure to feed at around 2k rounds fired. Found the frame rails
    & slide galled so badly you could catch a fingernail on the material
    on the frame rails.

    Overall,......a poor product, poor fitting, with poor QC, made by a poor company.

    I do not care for RIA.......a warranty is, and always has been, a
    marketing tool to get the consumer to have faith in a company
    and but their product. It has NOTHING to do with the QUALITY
    of a product!

    KIA had a 100k warranty on a eight thousand dollar car when they
    first came out. Was a selling point. Then they had to replace
    consumers cars because oil filters were not available.

  20. Thank-You Sir! Finally a response from somebody who actually has experience with one.

    The only thing that is confusing to me is about the parts being non standard. I was told by a Oly Arms representative that all the internal parts are the same as Colts 1911's. Maybe he was not being totally honest with me?

    Thanks for the review.
