    It was the fake auto sear pin that pushed those over the edge.

    Around $525 all in. I placed the order two months ago when no import fee promo was on. Just came in the mail.

    Are these “reproductions” as good as the Norinco unmarked 1911 A1s?
    When seconds count the police are only minutes away.

    Well we can still have fun watching some candid vids on YouTube.

    It looks like some have a series 80's FP safety and warnings to read the manual on the left side of the frame; bwaerk...

    Nestor, thanks for the pictures .

    It's November 11th and I finally got a few minutes to take the pistol apart. Machining of the slide is impressive and nothing is rising any red flags as far as I can see. It's forged I believe with different grain, texture and even color than the frame. Frame is a OK. Less impressive than the slide (or barrel). Plunger tube appears to be glued and not pinned. Dust cover area is fairly thin, more so than usual I would say. Most small parts are MIM. Other than that...all in norm. There are some faint leftovers of parkerizing on feeding ramp and less so on the barrel throat. Rifling is very well pronounced, and barrel appears to be very solid. It's cold hammer forged. I oiled all the parts and have couple of observations to share. Initially the pistol came very dry. Trigger was bit gritty. Recoil spring is heavier than standard - just not sure by how much. After cleaning and oiling the trigger pull improved. It's still fairly heavy, but 1911...properly smooth. I actually like it now. Racking the lubricated pistol is also easier. Soon I'll take it out to the range to see how it works in the cold. As You can see - I swapped the plastic grips for Hogue walnut ones. Looks much better to me. Thanks!
