    Like the title says, CDNN has some "1911-A1 45ACP 70 series" for $350. I know it is pretty basic looking, but it isn't ugly. It looks like what i would want to have in a 1911, basic with a 5" barrel.

    Who makes them? Is it an RIA, like from the Phillipines? Anybody know?

    I saw it too. There's no mention of the manufacturer that I can see. Call 'em.

    Just to take an semi-educated guess, I would say Phillipines.

    Interweb survey says Turkish made & not great quality control. :(

    Oh well, it was a good thought and the price was certainly right.

    I have not heard too much on the Turkish 1911's. It would be interesting to see how they compare to RIA.

    So, are you getting one?

    I'm sure it's a regent and for the money it is a good buy.

    No, I haven't heard anything good in my e-searching. I will wait for something a bit better. I'm curious about the American Classic II by Bersa; i was more than satisfied with the quality of their Thunder .380.

    From my reading it seems that bargain 1911 hunters are left to choose from Brazilian (Springfield/IMBEL) or Phillipino (RIA +) pistols. I wasn't just thrilled with the feel of my nephew's Springfield, but i haven't gotten to shoot it yet.

    Honestly, i'm in no huge rush to grab a 1911, but i do want one when i can find a good value. The only real advantage i see over my XD45 is concealability (haven't tried the 1911 trigger), and i don't hold a permit yet.

    sorry about this as it is off topic, however, i was reading your quote or signature. at first glance it seems great even fathomable. but then you think. what about all the crazy people who dont care for life and will pull the trigger just because you looked at them wrong or are a different color... i dont know.. just food for thought... i mean im married and have kids. but if im thinking about them and not breath and trigger control. what good am i?

    Jj very fair question and not to full up the thread but I would like to respond. Like my signature says having a firearm is a burden because it can be used to deliver lethal force and unfortunately bullets cant tell the difference between BG's and innocent bystanders. That alone is enough to convict individuals who wants to carry to practice. And I beleive in practice prepares one for perfection because no one is perfect nor is any shooter more accurate than their gun. And I also beleive that no matter how professional or degree of training a shooter has, in a stressed situation he is not thinking about trigger control, breathing, sight picture, or recoil but rather how many BG there are, how many rounds he has, and how he rather die before he let the BG harm his wife n family. That is why in my signature I stress practice, so things like trigger control can become muscle memory, habit, and second nature rather than thought process. Furthermore, in my sig im only pointing out how a man survival instinct kicks in when his family is in danger or even if he hears a weird sound at night that he knows is nothing but still gets out of bed to do a walk around. That same instinct is in bears, lions, and eagles when their cubs are threatened. That is why (along w the reason that it is wrong) I will never harm any man's family no matter his size or gun experience because of the fact that u have no idea of what he is willing to do or capable of doing in defense of his family. To sum it all up im only trying to point how big of a responsibility carrying is and how dangerous a well trained man with love ones safety in mind is. But again I can only speak for myself.

    Orangello, are you sure these aren't being manufactured by Sarsilmaz? They've been making firearms for the Turkish military for over 130 years and just recently re-tooled to a state-of-the-art facility using the latest CAD/CAM and CNC technology. If it's coming from there, it's well worth the money, I would imagine.

    the springfield imbrel brazil stuff is right up there with colt in quality. they are made on actual colt machinery sold to the imbrel plant decades ago. they use very good steel and have very high levels of quality control.

    I was thinking maybe under contract for another company but at the Sarsilmaz plant. This must be one of the largest weapon manufacturers in Turkey and I doubt they need their facility for their own contracts all year round. At least I was HOPING it was built at their plant if it was Turkish! :)
