It has no FPS. In Colt speak, it's a Pre-Series 80.

i had never heard of them until you mentioned them in this thread and had to check out their website. i kind of like what i saw. from the pictures, they seem to be well made and they look good to boot. if they are like any of the other 1911's made in the Phillipine Islands, they should be excellent pistols. so far i have failed to see any prices on them yet. i might have to search further.

keeping tuned to this thread to see what others find out about them.

Century International was selling them for $450 until their stock was depleted and I didn't see them listed in the last last catalog I received. My shooting partner bought one sometime ago and has had no problems with it that I know of.

It is another firearms manufacturer from the PI.

My concern would be on aftermarket parts fitting without major modification.

Just like Metro Arms and RIA all parts will fit. Nothing needed that a Colt or SA wouldn't need.
