I just got my Girsan MC1911S and I wish it could have been from the US but oh well. I tried to buy an american made one at the local gunshow but all my fellow americans were in the gouging mode so I went for the Girsan.
It's a great looking gun and everything feels quality. I really like the finish compared to the RIA's I've seen. I took it out a few days ago and again today. So far I fired just 25 rouds and I'm impressed with the accuracy and have had no FTF or stove pipes. I have been using the 230GR win value pack rounds and some 230GR PMC hollow points. I won't know for sure until a few hundred more rounds but I'm convinced it was a good deal. I'll be suprised if they don't go up in price with all the good reviews and it's great looks and production standards.
Oh yeah, the only scare I had was that the finish turned kinda milky at the muzzle right after 2 clips. I let it cool off, added a bit of oil and now it's gone
I wonder if that is just common with this type of finish?
