Default ATI Titan 1911 compact feedback?

Looking for a compact 1911 to add to the collection.....cannot afford a Kimber or Springfield at this time so looking into the Philippine officer sized 1911s. Obviously I looked over the Rock Island but I cannot get past the cheap parkerized finish...and blank combat style sights. I prefer dots, at least on the front sight post for quick target acquisition.

Looked at the ATI Titan 3.19" compact 1911 and mixed reviews but overall the feedback was decent. Has a couple flimsy looking parts mainly the recoil spring assembly. They seem to use some paper thin cheap-o recoil buffer that can easily bend & warp. I suppose I could replace this recoil assembly with a quality kit like Colt or Wilson Combat if they make it. I dont plan to use this as a EDC pistol more just a range gun and have wanted an officer .45 1911 for a while now. I like the overall fit & finish of this pistol....and for $525 including 2 mags I cant complain and nit pick! I just dont wanna sink $500 into a gun that will suck.

Anybody own one and can give some REAL feedback? How does it eat various FMJ and JHP and whats your overall rating? Thanks guys

I picked one up last December before the frenzy started for $375.

I got it for a CCW gun as carrying a full size 1911 wasn't a choice.

I put it through its paces at the range, simgle shots, double and triple taps. Only had 2 failure to extracts during the first 400 rounds.

When I got home and cleaned it, I fount that the extractor hook was broken off so I replaced it with a Wilson Combat extractor and haven't had any problems since.

I too am looking for a replacement recoil spring set up and I found out that the recoil set up for the Colt Defender will work in it but I haven't been able to find one yet.

All in all its been a great little gun and I would buy one again.

I too have the American Classic Commander in.45...bought it last year before the frenzy...much heavier than my Colt Commander. Great sights, beaver tail...can't use a CTC though due to the oversized slide lock and for some reason, could not get an extended length buffer to fit. All in all, great cc firearm!

Im not asking about the Metro AC models, or any commander length gun.

I need solid feedback from ATI Titan 3" owners, thanks
