Just picked up this baby today. This is their top of the line polished blue "Eagle" model. S.A.M. makes their slides and Frames in the Philippines and then its fitted with Iver Johnson small parts, much like STI does with Armscor for their Spartan model. I'm not sure where IJ sources the small parts, but they don't look like anything overly familiar to me. Anyway, I'm impressed with the fitting of the parts and the nice finish on this 1911. The trigger is heavier than it should be, IMO, but for $600 its not bad. The other IJ models are less expensive. Mine is at the top of the page in the link. http://www.iverjohnsonarms.com/3001/3052.html The serrations are odd, in that they don't share the grip angle, but, hey, I like unique things like that sometimes. Here are some pics. Enjoy and please tell me what you think. I do think its weird to have "Eagle" on the slide and then a picture of an owl on the opposite side and on the grips. However, the owl has always been Iver Johnson's logo, even with the old company. I actually like the way the logo looks on the grips and I like the grips in general. As soon as some of this snow melts, I'll take a range trip. I'm curious how its going to do. All my Filipino 1911s thus far have been great. Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
