    Well I purchased my first 1911 on buds. It arrived at my FFL and I picked it up today. This thing came soaked in oil. Performed my first strip of a 1911. Wasn't too bad. I am very impressed with how tight the slide is to the frame. Can't wait to shoot it tomorrow. :cool:

    Good choice for a first 1911. They are awesome for the price range. I love mine too, the slide glides like its on ice.

    Ran by the range and put 50 Atlanta Arms 230gr tmj and 30 Remington 185gr +P Golden Sabers through it. Functioned flawlessly and was very accurate. Had a blast. Looking forward to more shooting with it.

    Congrats.My Citadel is tighter than a virgin bank vault.I'm starting to think that the "low end" 1911's are as well built as the "high end" pistols.

    Yeah, it's pretty sad to look at my $1000 Colt and SW and then look at the $400 Filipino job to see that it has much better fit & finish than products from these venerable American gun makers.

    I figure I can use it for any 5" 1911 I end up with in the future, and it's not that much more than most quality holsters.
