  1. I have had at least 25 1911 45 pistols. 9 Kimbers, Les bare, Sig, S&W, Ati ect. None i mean none
    have come out of the box and been this good. Fit and finish are Excellent. Accuracy at 25yds is
    excellent 2 to 3 in groups. Reliability is the BEST of any 45 I have ever owned. I just passed 1000 rds
    of mixed ammo and have not had1 problem.This gun is made so well I can see O wear marks on any part of the barrel, frame ect. This is the BEST 1911 I have ever fired. I recommend this gun to anyone who wants an accurate, reliable well made 3in 1911 45. i have been shooting for over 60 yrs and its about
    time someone has come out with a 1911 45 that runs, and runs.
