ATI GI model
« on: February 13, 2011, 03:55:20 PM »
I am going to save up for one this year, they are priced just right for me. Do we know about the manufacturing process with those guns? Are the parts good quality and durable? I don't want to get one and then have it fall apart in the middle of a pistol class.

    For 449, it's a screaming good deal.  I've shot them, and they shoot very well.  They seem well made enough and as far as the quality of parts go, they seem better than some, but otherwise pretty much completely average.  There is nothing all that great, but nothing that would give me pause.  I am considering one myself.

    As the parts wear out, I could replace them with much better ones. . .

    Just like you would do with ANY 1911. 

    I've been very impressed with these 1911's from ATI.  I've not seen a bad one.  Which is a hell of a lot more than I can say about Kimber this last two years.

    Now the real question is, get the ATI for cheap, or pay a couple hundred more for a Remington or Springfield made in the USA?

    The Remington is pretty much a Para.  The Para Expert GI with a different finish.  Rem owns Para.

    If you wanted to save up and step up, Springfield.  All the way.

    If only Springfield would offer their mil-spec with the Para GI Expert grip safety/hammer system, it would be exactly what I'm looking for. A utility 1911 that won't punch holes in my hand when I shoot it. Maybe Joe could rig something up. . .

    Joe can do that for you.  Swap some parts, hit the internals with some Slipstream treatment...  It would be a thing of beauty.

    The Crusader Springfield Mil-Spec GI Expert. That would be cool. Now to get some projects to pay for one and a piece for my wife, and a pistol class for the both of us. . .
