Would you buy a $400 polymer 1911?

I thought I'd like one, but then saw its picture. A classic design completely uglified. The Colt Cobra designer must've got ahold of it. Who has a finger that big?
Wilson Combat came out with something similar back around the turn of the century. Cost more than $400 and wasn't around very long. It's not the first plastic one to be tried.
It is imported.
You know, I actually don’t mind the looks of it. I’d be more offended if they tried to make a polymer 1911 actually look like a 1911. ;)

Let's just see what happens. I won't say no. You'd be surprised what comes out of the factory over there.

I voted "no", but that was before I saw the pic. I would like to change my vote to "yes".

I kinda like the looks of it... Not a 1911, though.

I had the opportunity to handle the Tisas, firsthand. I was impressed with such a good fit and finish at that price point. The level of clarity and definition of the lettering on the slide and frame is beyond compare.

The finger grooves and the fit of the grip safety to frame = non starter for me.
