Isn't Hi Standard now one of those Flip 1911 copy manufacturers?

Here's the one I've been looking at, is the 4.5in barrel..

http://summitgunbroker.com/hd-military.html
The Military model is unique - only HS w Hammer. Solid shooter w fan base. I prefer the serious Tgt guns. Something about the older ones - designs were sold and they tried to reproduce the performance of the old Victors. Didn't work out.

Hard to believe the old Hamden CT equip w be superior to today's CAD-CAM manufacturing ? The old Craftsmen knew how to bring out the best with what they had. (Like the Early Pythons)

I'll bet the 4.5" will have better balance than the 6" but you"ll miss the sight radius. I'd research this puppy more to see if Govt changed specs or somone just added 4.5" barrel. (easy by design)

Handled one at my LGS just yesterday---

There will be a manual like any other new gun would have. It should also have an exploded parts diagram.

Ok cool just the normal paperwork. Didn't know if you were referring to a special paperwork. Thanks for the help.
