What are your thoughts on this? Whats the going price of this pistol in your area? Are they any good? Any reviews?

Thanks in advance.

I'm Ok with a lot of the new stuff out there...but a Polymer Frame 1911??? That's just wrong!

How fast is JMB spinning right now? ? ?

If it has a plastic frame it is not a 1911. If it has a double column magazine it's not a 1911. If it is double action it's not a 1911. If it's not a 1911 it's not a 1911:)

I have a Wilson Combat KZ45, one of the first ones rolled-out in the USA. In the roughly 7 years of shooting, it has survived many multi-day training sessions of up to 2800 rounds in 4 days. It has never failed to fire (even using crappy American ammo!) and puts them exactly where you aim.

Kinda what you'd expect from Wilson Combat.

99% likely, what you own isnt a 1911 either,if its a REAL 1911 its a 1911A1. elsewise its just a clone

with the exception of DA, the design is still the same. even if material or proportions are differant.

:barf: 1911 snobs.

that's weird, me and my brother were just talking about this yesterday; we had been wondering why nobody made 1911s in polys, and lo and behold, someone does. now all i have to do is buy one.:)

Isn't a polymer 1911 like a front-wheel drive Corvette?

Mine is a real 1911 and it's definitely not a 1911A1! Note the long trigger, flat mainspring housing, and lack of scallops behind the trigger:

(Ignore his little German friend)

It was made in 1917 and issued to my Great-Grandfather.

jesse, sorry my writing may have sounded like i was doubting the existance of the original 1911 . definatly wasnt. was just trying to say that all the people who own 1911 pattern guns actualy are closer to 1911a1's than 1911's and even if they do own a REAL US PROPERTY 1911 pattern, its probibly a 1911a1. and if they disqualify a gun from being a 1911 due to minor diferances rather than operating method then infact thier kimber is not a 1911

make any more sense

Hoppy, no offense taken. I was just indulging in some pedantic one-upmanship.:D

I think the reason that they're aren't more polymer 1911s is that a lot of the allure of the design is in the feel of the weapon during use. The lighter frame would probably increase felt recoil which IIRC is one of the reasons the aluminum framed ones aren't as popular. I'd certainly would love to try one out if someone showed up at the range with it though.:)

Okey maybe I was wrong it it is not a 1911 then lets just call it a firearm. I think we now have a consensus on this. Im more interested to know the overall performance of the BUL M5 commander. 'Hope anyone can give out their 1st hand experience?

Thanks in advance.

JMB was an innovator, who was always advancing the technology of weapons. Why do people think he would have stopped if he were still alive? And in fact, he designed a weapon to fix what he considered to be flaws in the 1911. 1911 guys just won't admit it.

as far as im considered its the BHP.while i LOVE the 1911. i also love everything JMB built. like the 1903 and the BHP. the problem is with 1911 snobs

If plastic is wrong, then is it wrong in any caliber other than .45acp?
