...long story short. I've seen some amazing looking 1911 there and I don't know what it is. Jeezzzz there was like a 50 people lining up in front of the counter and I was busy with the paperwork regarding the membership at the range. All I know is that it was made in Philippines (yes You are reading correctly). It was full size pistol in 1911 A1 configuration with high polished blue finish. I have to come back there and check that thing out. I'm sick and I'm in love Now, I did check the mighty Youtube thing and I have one suspect...look at that: [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ETe0iE93YRE"]Cimarron1911 in a high polished blued finish. - YouTube[/ame] Sorry, I need to vent a bit here. Just tell me that it's some kind of crap. Something that will prevent me from spending my money. Any experience with this brand? So much for "no new guns in 2012"
