I currently own two of these little jewels and use them for concealed carry in a double Andrews leather shoulder rig. I use a Colt national match pistol as my standard by which I judge the construction of all other pistols I own.
The fit on these is every bit as nice as my old Colt.the finish is dark grey parkerised finish and can not be compaired to the high polish deep blue of the old Colt pistols but it is all evenly done with no blemishes or flaws.
The slide to frame fit is tight and there is a full length guide rod for the recoil spring. Magazine ejection is flawless you push the release and the magazine drops free whether loaded or empty. Sights are Novak type with no white dots I have installed Crimson Trace laser sights as my eyes are not as good as they ownce were..
These have digested more than 500 rounds of .45 ACP ammo they function with hard ball, hollow points and semi wadcutter I shoot in my Colt national match ( pre Gold Cup ) I plan to acquire another of these in nickel finish for my wife She shoots my Colt better than I doo. She tried one of these and shot a 6 shot group in one ragged hole at 20 yards. She credits the laser sight I think she had a lot to do with it.
What I really liked was the forged steel in the frame and slide. These are made like they used to make them ( High Quality ). They feel right in your hand and look good too.If you are looking for a high quality 1911 compact pistol I highly recomend these.
These function perfectly right out of the box and are accurate too. These are as good as it gets for this price point no frills or bells & whistles just perfect function.
