    They are good guns. It should introduce you well to the 1911.

    Shoot the snot out of it, then see if you "need" anything else.

    I was seeing them for $399.00 at the last Gun Show I was at in Ohio.

    Very tempting. I was thinking the same thing. Good luck, tell us how it works out. :wavey:

    Glad to hear.

    Armscor builds a solid gun. I own several (one under the Rock Island name) and all have been fantastic guns at terrific prices.

    Besides my opinion, you'll hear positive remarks from many of the regulars on this forum.
