    Everybody needs a 1911, or so I hear. They are handsome pieces admittedly and anything is a step up from my butchered hi-point 9mm. I've stumbled across a 5" 70 series TISAS (R100) .45acp, and the limited information I can dig up from the search function seems to indicate they're fairly well built.

    $380 seems to be the going price, and hey, it's not a Taurus. How about it? is this a go-nogo?

    Woo-hoo first to vote.

    I've never heard of Tisas.
    So my vote goes to Metro Arms American Classic II.

    There are several 1911 threads going.
    Rather than repost over & over, here's a link to my full answer.

    Looks like this with black grips. Also goes by the name Regent.

    The gun you are considering is a Regent R100 by TISAS (Trabzon Gun Industry Corp.) in Turkey. The gun was formerly imported by IAC (Interstate Arms Corp.) and had no firing pin safety (inaccurately referred to as a "70 Series"), but the guns currently imported by Umarex have a firing pin safety.

    The American Rifleman and Gunblast have reviews of the R100, as do several other sites.

    Yeah, that looks like its it. Gunblast likes every gun they fire, but they have good right-ups. Thanks for the informtion. Was hard to find info on it under the other names.

    A co-worker of mine bought a Regent a few months ago, he really likes it.

    Well, lacking a clear majority, i went with the professional reviews and even the gun store owner who had nothing but praises for it-- a person specifically vested in selling me something more expensive. $379+tax ain't a bad deal.

    Looks hawt. Balance and weight are wonderful, so much better than my hipoint c9 (but that's a duh, right?). Haven't taken it to the range yet, but I'll let you know how it turns out. :)

    I feel like they're a cut above RIAs in terms of fit and finish and just as reliable. You really can't beat 'em for the price.

    That being said, I wish my first 1911 was a Colt, but that's because I'm a bit of a traditionalist...
