    I have a TISAS 1911, a model they call the "blackout" ( basically the same pistol, minus the lanyard loop and with a black finish and black grips) , bought as an impulse buy on sale . It's. A well made pistol, with very good fir and,finish, and it shoots very well.

    I sure can remember Hyundai Pony. That was their first, somehow decent car. I think that those days, where the CNC machining is involved and the factory is up to ISO 9001 standard...the chances of getting a decent gun at lower price point are good. I guess, I'll find out soon. I'll be glad to post a detailed, long term review on this pistol in the near future. Thanks!

    Hiya Tom. Yes, I'll take my time with this one and let You Guys know about my honest findings.

    Yep, I've got one of the TISAS 1911s. Great deal for the money. Simple and reliable (with FMJ). Not a sophisticated beauty queen, but the girl next door who tries harder and is a good cook.

    I've been looking for a 1911 to put in my fathers burial flag display case. He carried his 1911 for 30 yrs in the Army. His wife stole it along with everything else when he ended up in the hospital. Although it's not the Colt he carried, I think it will do in his display case with photos from his military service. I just might pick this up.

    With the exception of the pre-A1 hammer, it looks like the duty gun I carried as an MP.

    FN stopped the HP and my most recent was made in Belgium assembled in Portugal. Too bad they can't continue with them made in Turkey.

    Fair enough. I used to own the firearms from Russia, China, Germany, Austria, Philippines, Italy, Poland, Brazil, USA, Czech Republic, Yugoslavia, Great Britain, Belgium/Portugal, Vietnam/Australia and Sweden. Turkish gun won't make much of an impact on my self esteem I guess.

    So what are you going to do with this gun? Do you want it as a range gun, carry gun, collector gun or just because you have to have one?

    I'm going to shoot that damn thing. Then clean it...and then shoot some more. Likely this cycle will repeat itself for a while. In the process I'm planning to share my impressions and experience with the rest of You Guys.
