One thing I've noticed within the last few months is the previously rather square front strap has changed to a more rounded profile much like the Colt's 1911's. I consider that an improvement for AO.

AOs made in West Hurley were hit and miss. I had a good one a few years back. They were the lower end of 1911s, though, like the Rock Island of it's day but Rock Island now makes a nice 1911. If it's made after Kahr bought it, chances are it's a decent gun.
