    Auto Ordinance 1911's?

    I have a chance to buy a used (according to the owner around 75 rounds fired through it) Auto Ordinance GI 1911 for under $250 from a friend of a friend. Who knows anything about these pistols, I understand that they are made by Kahr now. I already have a Springfield GI 1911 to fill that niche, but it seems like a pretty good deal, and in the future I could use the frame to build it into whatever I want. Any opinions?

    Tell you what, if you don't want it I'll buy it. At that price you should be able to buy it, play with it, and sell it without a loss if you don't end up liking it.

    Seriously, I'd love to go for that if you're not interested, shipping & FFL on me...

    Still not worth it. They're junk, pure and simple. The small parts are poorly fit and low quality, the frame isn't that great either. If you want to build a gun from the frame up, then buy a quality frame.

    Post Kahr NN, at least that is what I was told. I still have to take a look at it and see exactly what condition it is in, as I was just told about it today and won't be in the area its being sold for a couple days.

    Dnowell, I'll keep that in mind after I check it out.

    Thumbs up My 2 cents...

    If it is truly an Auto Ordnance ( pre Kahr ) there were some problems with fit and finish.

    Having said that...I own a Auto Ordnance (Kahr) PKZSE ...a WWII parkerized 1911a1 replica with a 5" barrel, overall length of 8.5", weighing in at 39 ozs unloaded. Sights are rudimentary with a blade front and rear windage adjustable. Mine came in a plastic lockable carry case with one 7 round magazine...price at the PA NG Armory gun show a year ago was $425 out the door...and before I left I bought another nine 7 round GI magazines at $7.00 a pop.

    Don't care what others say...it's a damn good GI 45 that functions like it should and hurls lead where I point it.

    Don't know if ya saw the movie "Last Man Standing" with Bruce Willis... but it looks like the twin 45's he used and when I roll up to the range with 10 magazines loaded, I know I'm in for a blast of a time!!

    For $250...if ya don't want it...tell the guy I'll take it off his hands !!

    Here's a pic:



    I also own a Auto Ordnance 1927a1 Tommy Gun...$850 OTD
