    Stay away from ANY Filliapino-built gun, especially ATI. Mine is at NW Ohio's premier 1911 gunsmith getting repaired/upgraded right now. Bottom line is that it is a cheap knock-off. I paid ~$450 and am dropping another $1000, of which $500 is just to get it shootable again. Doing a lot of upgrades also. My advice, I should have talked to the gunsmith first and bought a Colt, Springfield, or Kimber (which isn't as robust as you may think). It (ATI) is made with soft gun-metal and non-machined parts. I have <500 rounds through it and have parts that look like they have been beat with a ball-peen hammer.

    Sorry about your bad luck Ar but to say stay away from any Filipino gun is painting with way too broad a brush. RIA makes a quality piece for a great price. You will have to look far and wide to find a bad review on RIA 1911s. Having said that I won't be buying the ATI Titan I was thinking about.

    I'm just passing on the advice of 1911 gunsmith Charlie Thompson. If tyou're looking for a quality 1911, go with Colt or Springfield. It will ultimately cost the same in the end, but will save A LOT of frustratrion.

    PS - I had sent the gun back to ATI and they had it shooting for a while, however, they did not fix the soft gunmetal problem. Guess they knew it was an issue. Customer Service???
