    I like the looks of it. Price is decent also.

    I'll bet it's just as good as a taurus 1911 based on the price. Take that for what you will.

    I believe it is made by Bul.

    The story is it was contracted by Charles Daly, but Bul then gave the distribution rights to Magnum Research.

    The folks at Daly are not happy.

    Yep.... and for a couple of hundred dollars more, you can get a Dan Wesson .... in stainless... without the holster-chewers (front slide serrations).

    At first look, the front slide serrations and sight cuts screamed Kimber. Bul slide serrations and sight dovetails are the same, so I could see that.

    I hate kimber dovetails.

    It looks like a slightly "tweaked" Citadel.
    As if Charles Daley had something in the fire when they dropped Armscor and this is what was "left over" of the Daley Line.
    I would rather have the Citadel for under $500 and do the rest myself.

    Hmmm...

    Seems like a couple of importers (Charles Daley & Magnum Research) are going tit for tat.

    Charles Daley took over as sole importer of the IWI Jericho 941 from Magnum Research. So, no more Baby Desert Eagles from Magnum Research.

    Now, Magnum Research took over a 1911 that Charles Daley had in the works.

    It would be a hell of a stopper, but expensive as hell to shoot at the range!

    Looks like a pretty good deal, I like Desert Eagles they are mighty fine guns, so i am assuming the 1911 they are making is another mighty fine gun also .

    I am a quality freak so i the new Magnum Research has my thumbs up.

    Charles Daly thought they were going to be the importer of these Bul 1911s and have been hyping it for over a year. They made a big blunder by not having a signed contract.

    I have to say that I made a mistake in my previous post. I assumed that this MR 1911 was going to be a .50AE and I was wrong so my post makes no since, unless you consider .45ACP to be too expensive.

    Can you believe this? The desert eagle is a novelty gun that is cool in movies, and now they are saying that a 1911 finally deserves the name? blasphemy, I had to take a shower after seeing the ad.

    Looks like yet another filipino import with a huge, obscene roll mark on it. I don't see any reason why anyone would buy this over an RIA or a Charles Daly, apart from the juvenile appeal of owning a 'Desert Eagle' (or 'Deagle' as the kids call it nowadays).

    The slide cuts and marks look really rough to me.

    1. Because it is not made in the made Philippines. It is made by Bul in Israel.
    2. Because you can't get a Charles Daly anymore.

    I'm pretty sure I won't buy one, but those are a couple of reasons why somebody may.

    The point is this was supposed to be Charles Daly's new 1911 and not Magnum Research's. Charles Daly was hyping this pistol as a "high-end" production pistol and not an entry level 1911 like their Armscor supplied previous offering.

    BUL and Kimber look the same to me, as far as fit and finish, slide serrations, sights, small parts, MIM parts, crisp triggers, etc, so I could see this qualifying as a high end production pistol.

    Having never seen a single stack BUL, I'm making my comparison based on several Kimber Polymers that I've handled (one of which I own), several BUL M5s I've handled (one of which I almost bought).

    Is there some advantage to the full size (government like) barrel being 5.055” and the semi-compact "C" (commander like) barrel being a 4.33” barrel instead of 5" and 4.25" ?
