You've got to bear in mind that many are made in the Philippines...on old machinery that we sold them. Also, the people aren't paid to hold tolerances...they are paid to make an end product that...

QC consists primarily of go/no-go gages for internals of the 1911A1.







I'd be willing to take you up on that bet, if you were more specific. Most guns? No...I disagree. Some guns,...

I've got a used SW9VE that I picked up 2 years ago for $250. I don't know how many rounds went through it before me, but I've put over 1000 through it without a single issue. I had to learn the...

I understand exactly what you're saying, but bean counters have ruined craftsmanship. They are always demanding faster turn around times for cheaper prices, and something has to give...it's always...

Made in the same factory and likely the same production line? Yes, and most likely. The only difference that I can see is that RIA comes with one mag versus two, and Citadel uses a Novak cut for...

5.5lb trigger, and quite smooth. I changed out the stock mags for a set I picked up from Brownell's. As for recoil, I'd say it's on par with other .45's.

Citadel would be one to look at as well. They are made by Armscor, just like RIA, but come loaded with factory custom features. If you search hard enough, you can find them in the sub $500 range.

The grip panels it came with make it look cheap...like a toy from Hong Kong.

I'll run another 400-500 rounds through it before I decide to put it into service as my EDC weapon. I'm still...

I saw one on Buds for $443 last Friday, and pulled the trigger, so to speak. It arrived yesterday to my FFL and I picked it up last night. I opted to pay the $22.15 for the life time warranty, only...

I hope to be able to get to the...

Mine have thumb safeties...I collect Norinco Model 213s made as 9mm only. They were banned in or around 1992, after about 4 years of importation. I wasn't thinking about the Romanian TTC or the...

I use a Tagua holster made for a 1911. Not the best, but it's rather comfortable. Mine is a LH IWB that I use to carry SOB.
