@FullAuto - I have supported MANY American made firearms over the years, from Glocks and S&W to a $950 Kimber Ultra Ten II carry 1911 and a Sig GSR 1911. Nothing wrong with an occasional purchase for nearly half those prices for overall decent quality, despite being made overseas. My LGS still made profit off that gun

so how many 1911's have you owned or do you own? just curious at your level of experiance with the 1911 platform with this wealth of knowledge you seem to have about them. how long have you been shooting and handling them?

At one time the Philippines were a territory of the United States.

They are good friends of the USA in the South Pacific.

The Filippinos have a love affair with the American 1911 and build them with great respect.

Why would anyone simply write them off?

guys you have to understand that there are those who believe themselves to be qualified experts on the level of quality of 1911's, in relation to where they are made. they don't publish facts or evidence, just make statements that we are suppose to accept without question.

LOL!

i am no expert by any means either, but with owning, shooting, handling and working on them for close to thirty years, i would at least say i have decent working knowledge of the 1911 platform. i don't know every maker of 1911's, but know many of them from being around them, shooting them or owning them. i have been an enthusiast since picking up my first one many, many years ago and have tried to learn as much as possible as i can about them.

IMO, the 1911 paltform is simply the closest in perfection one can get to in a pistol. now that statement is an opinion and observation of mine and not fact. but a simple fact is, today i see many manufacturers that are making 1911's that weren't many years ago. Dan Wesson i can remember making just revolvers, Smith & Wesson is making them, Remington, Sig, Ruger, and ect...

this forum is about teaching new people about firearms and sharing knowledge. when someone makes statements that are not supported by facts or sources, and is simply hearsay, it does no good to those who are wanting to learn and don't know any better. and if someone wants to just say that foreign made 1911's are not as well made or of the same quality as an American made 1911, then please show proof and show facts that support that statement. IMO, i don't feel one bit out of line for asking for that evidence.
