    Does anyone know anything about this company? Apparently they were an importer of philipine made 45 autos from 1997 to about 2004? A shop that I go to has their model 5000 for $300. It seems like a well made 45 for that kind of money. Does anyone know if their guns are mil-spec and will readily accept replacement barrels etc?

    I remember an article in some gun rag in the 90's touting a 1911 (M5000 was it?) from a company that I'm almost certain was called Israeli Arms Incorporated (IAI). I believe they offered other firearms as well, though I have no idea where they were actually manufactured.

    IAI = Irwindale Arms Inc. out of California. Don't think they are in business any longer.
