  1. I put 200 rounds through the Tisas 1911 this morning. I used 230 grain Winchester FMJ in the white box and didn't have any malfunctions. I had four 8 round magazines, the one Tisas supplied, and three Promag 1911 ACP mags. I thought the Promags didn't fit at first because they were really tight. I cycled them about 20 times apiece and they developed wear marks on the to corners of the mag and loosened up quickly. I really like the gun -- as I said, its my first 1911 and the trigger is better than any of my striker fired 9's. The trigger breaks consistently just over 5 lbs and has a very crisp break. It was so good, the first few magazines I fired with my Springfield XDS 9 was all over the place. Here are the first three targets I shot from 7 yards. There are 16 shot at each bullseye. I'm a competent shooter, but I wouldn't consider myself an expert by any means. Here's the first two magazines with the XDS9, also 8 round mags. Here's the sixth magazine for comparison. It was a 7 round magazine and I'm sure the flyer is my fault. It too me that long to get used to the Springfield trigger after the Tisas. I'll shoot the other way around next time.
  2. Grab a Gun in Coppell, Texas keeps them in stock so I was able too pick it up today. I haven't shot it yet, but it looks and feels good. I've never owned a 1911, in fact, over the last few years, I've gotten rid of all my guns with a hammer and bought a few striker fired autoloaders. It'll be interesting to see how this shoots.
  3. I hope you don't mind someone from Texas commenting on your Tennessee forum. I found this old thread while looking for reviews on the Tisas products. Despite the angst expressed by the OP, I went ahead and ordered a 1911 Duty model in 45 ACP from SDS Imports for $449. Its my first 1911 and I'm hoping it works as good as it looks. I just didn't want to spend $800 on what is really an impulse purchase. I think there have been improvements to the lineup since SDS took over and the guns have received pretty good reviews over the last 2-3 years. Got my fingers crossed. BTW, this thread is still pretty high up on the web search results, it was number 5 on my google search.
