Armscor also makes the High Standard 1911, which is also a nice 1911 for the money. I had 2 of them until recently " I used one in a trade for a Springfield Loaded 1911" but still have the other. They are great shooting guns, and very accurate, I have not had a single malfunction or hiccup . I would never hesitate to buy a RIA or a High Standard 1911

I thought High Standars pistols were made in Houston, TX.

From High Standard's website:

In the spring of 1993, High Standard Manufacturing Company, Inc. of Houston, Texas acquired the company assets and trademarks. These original assets were transferred from Connecticut to Houston, Texas in July of 1993. The first shipments of Houston manufactured pistols began in March, 1994.

The company is now housed in a modern building in an industrial park in Houston. However, its Connecticut roots are continued with our National Parts Distributor, G.W. Elliott Inc., located in East Hartford; and Bob Shea from North Haven, working with our Custom Gun Shop.

Many civilian and military shooting teams have already acquired these fine pistols for the National and International Competitions! In fact, at the 1995 National Matches at Camp Perry, the number one pistol brand on the .22 caliber firing line was High Standard. The High Standard Manufacturing Company, Inc., Houston, Texas is continuing the traditions of this fine American company!

Those would be the High Standard .22 pistols like th old Victor and Champion models. Those are manufactured in the US.

High Standard 1911s are imported. It gives the company some diversification in product line without the expense of tooling up.

I can't wait to pay mine off. I should be able to take it home mid month. It's a .45 that also come with a .22 slide so it will shoot both with a quick swap of the upper. Comes with a very nice soft case and two of each magazine. I handled it along side of a Kimbal and Sig and it felt equally as well built. The action felt absolutely seamless. There is also a gun show this weekend. This is getting out of hand.
