    GI Model S.A.M. 1911???

    Does anyone have any experience with or opinions about the S.A.M. 1911 from the Philippines? I have a Rock Island Gov't and love it. I also read someone's reply to a Taurus 1911 post and he recommended the Para Limited Edition.

    I've narrowed my next purchase (after I sell my Witness .40 package) to the S.A.M. 4.25" 1911 and ammo, the Taurus 1911 and no ammo or the Para Limited Edition and no ammo without hitting the family budget. I have a LOT of .45 ammo as it is (more is always better!). Thanks!

    I'm not a fan of the S.A.M.'s, and like you I own the twin to your Rock(the High Standard made by armscor). Then next 1911 I have been oogling is the Taurus and a few of the Springfield's. That being said, I'm thinking about going with the Xd .45 compact instead of another 1911.

    I read a bunch of posts on another forum and ONE person liked the S.A.M. Everyone else had parts break within 300 rounds. I appreciate your input. I think I am going to get a Springer or a Para Limited in 4" - 4.25" barrel. If I can't find one, I'll save until I can. Thanks again!
