I recently purchased a para g.i. expert for $499+tax. Wanted one that was american made. It is. Wanted a no frills basic 1911 and except for the sights, it is. It has great slide to frame finish and shoots like a dream. My brother has a ruger and it shoots just as good if not better than the ruger. Only have 200rds thru it so far but it hasnt had any FTF's or FTE's. I even shot it with my brothers ruger magazines without issue. Great gun for the money.

First 100 rounds no issues at all. Shoots smoothly, no FTF or FTE. I shot pmc bronze 230 grain.

Photos are:
The first photo was the first magazine at 25 yds (I had to try).

The next photo is a group at 15 yards. I try to acquire my target quickly and take follow up shots as fast a the range master allows. This was my best group.

The third was the best part of 2 magazines at 15 yards.
