    Yep- I've bought a few. No troubles with them. They are good basic 1911s.

    If so inclined yes - they would certainly get my consideration. I hear mostly OK stuff and little bad.

    Such a choice out there tho for 1911 platforms - almost glad I am not having to make up my mind right now!

    That said - this board is probably one of the best places to whittle down a choice - so much first hand experience and good info - and much with a useful and strong practical bias too.

    From what i understand, a good, very basic 1911...might be a good, inexpensive build platform

    Maybe a used one that I had fired a few mags through....
    Also resale is always a factor in the firearms I buy, so that would definitely play a role....

    Bought one, one problem after another. Fit and finish was poor and some parts were not compatible with standard 1911 parts.
    I sold it at a major loss. Maybe I just got a lemon but I will never buy another Philippine gun.
