    Has anyone had any experiences with these? Are they junk or the best thing on the market? $625.00 will buy one.

    All thoughts appreciated.

    The absolutely best sub $600 1911 by far. I got to handle and shoot a preproduction gun and it fed everything we could throw at it. The production guns have been just as good. I wouldn't even think twice for personal protection. These guns are nearly fool proof!.

    I believe DPMS. The preproduction unit that I shot was made there, and I've not seen anything on the production guns that makes me think they changed location.

    Where do you buy them under $600? Any other fees, taxes etc. in addition?

    Well, you have to add sales tax. My local dealer sells them for $599+tax.

    Looked at one yesterday and was not impressed. Bad trigger and hammer falls from halfcock position. Taurus 1911 was a much better feeling and featured gun for $150 more. Beavertail grip saftey, great trigger, ambi thumb safety, just felt better to my hand.
