Picked one up used in great shape for a song and decided to do some shooting. I was impressed, accurate and nice trigger. Not bad for under $300. I originally planned on using it as a truck gun, but it shoots better than my series 70, and almost as good as my modded series 80 (Frank Paris bowling pin gun). Not sure if I got an exceptional one, but I am happy with it.

Yup, don't that just piss you off? :D

Congrats on your good shooting cheap 1911.

Those tricky Phillipenos really do love 1911's, and making Colt envious! They make some fine varients. I have an Amigo and shoots as accurately as my 5" Colt up close, and handier. I really like it. Gonna get one of the Bobbed Commander length ones so I can mix and match my frames and barrel assemblies all up and see which way I like it best. I'll do a Bobbed 3.5" full frame and a Commander length short frame, or put the long one on the Bobber, well you get the gist of it.
