I think it's a good price for a basic 1911 copy. I don't own one but have read a lot about them here and there on various forums. Most reviews are good with a few reporting some minor problems. My guess is that you may have to do a little polishing here and there to make it 100% relaible but that is not enough to make me say it's a bad gun. I've had to polish the feed ramp on new Colts before and I have to modify the magazine followers on my new $750 Para P14 to make it work right.dpesec said:I just saw a Rock Island 1911A1 for just a bit over 250. What do you all think?
