This 1911 is amazing!!! Purchased it about two months ago, and have had no unexpected problems. There is the expected first few failure to feed issues you come across with new 1911's, but i onle experienced 3, and they were in the first 100 rounds. After that, not a worry in the world. Pistol is beautiful, and well put together. My wife (small woman) is able to fire this gun with one hand. Definately a must obtain if you are looking for a 1911. And hurry! They sell fast!
