    Generally not as well thought of as the Springfield pistols. However, the Auto Ordnance reputation has improved significantly since Kahr bought them around 2000.

    They are made in the US and are much more authentic WW II looking than the Springfield 1911's. They do have a firing pin block if that makes a difference, but it doesn't have an ILS or proprietary sized titanium firing pin like the Springfield.

    Here are a couple of links with reviews.

    From the Six Gun Journal. He replaced a whole bunch of stuff, but thought he got a good value for the pistol.

    From 1911.org, the reviewer, a died in the wool Colt guy, liked the pistol enough to buy it after the review.

    that one must be "newer", my AO WW2(~2001) has angled slide serrations...it's a great piece, surprisingly, but my only regret is that it didnt have the vertical serrations...which would make it a little more authentic
