Not if part of that "winning" includes my seal of approval...

Of course, once Glock has a total recall, and puts real safeties

on every gun bearing their name,

they'll be able to try to climb in the ratings again.

Sig and CZ are basically superior to US made.

Just kidding. Most people here know I hate them. But someone always comes along and says how they are so much better than Colt or Smith & Wesson.
Look two posts up.

IMHO the CZ line of pistols present the best quality and value currently available to the American shooter.

I assume you mean the Beretta 92FS:

"The model Beretta 92FS is the primary side arm of the United States Army, Marine Corps, and Air Force, designated the M9 pistol. In 1985, Beretta was chosen after a controversial competition to produce the M9, winning a contract for 500,000 pistols. A condition of the original agreement was domestic fabrication of the M9. The Beretta USA factory, in Accokeek, Maryland, manufactures military, police, and civilian pistols."

-- wikipedia

And the Taurus PT92. Would you say the peening (metal getting punched out of shape) is due to the stainless steel? Strange that the US Army would make a gun with that problem the main sidearm, but problems with the military procurement process are a national joke.

i currently have a Citadel 1911 FS and compact, and a Metro Arms 1911 Commander in 9MM and just picked up a Tisas 1911 GI model. The Citadel's are made by Amscor and the Metro Arms is Philippines made. The Tisas is made in Turkey. All are very well made, good and tight, and IMHO comparable to well made American models at half the price. I have shot them all and have had no failures other then the mag on the Metro Arms not locking slide back on last round. accuracy is very good at 10 yards

3 year old thread. Just so folks seeing this rise again may understand that the original poster may not be looking at the input any longer.
That which does not kill you makes you stronger...except submarines, they'll just plain kill you.

For those who like steel 1911-style pistols, I don't think one could beat the various Philippine-made pistols. OTOH, for those who are willing to acknowledge that the state of the art in ergonomics, magazine capacity, frame materials, finish, and just engineering in general has improved since 1919 (the 1911a1), there are many good choices. Two of my favorites are the Steyr M-series and the CZ-75 compact models. Both offer old-world craftsmanship at very reasonable prices.
