    Was the best made import before the ban. High quality steel and a tight fit makes for a great platform to build upon, or to just shoot as is. One of my most accurate .45’s, and I’ve owned quite a few.

    As Steve said, due to high quality steel and nice machine work quality, coupled with low price, this is *the* platform to start a hot rod on, Id take one above a new armscor 7days out of the week, and I dont hate those!
