    I saw one in the photo thread and have always been kinda interested in the GI model they have.
    Are there any opinions to the overall quality of them.
    I know $1500 is quite steep for a GI type pistol that is close, but not an exact replica of the original

    Thoughts?

    Bac has the other one (NON-GI) and really likes it. I would assume the GI is good as well.

    Yeah, Brian speaks very highly of his. I thought he was going to do a comparison of some sort with it. They are built locally about 45 min from my place. I have a buddy that has mentioned heading over to tour the factory. I hope to do that sometime. They seem to be a nice gun, but they had better be at that price point. You are sniffing Baers, and the Valor is right there and are mighty fine guns for the money.

    I can't recall seeing any photos or reviews of the GI one, but I'm interested to hear more.

    A properly-made GI-style gun intrigues me. :thumb:

    I love mine.

    I have yet to see the GI version, nor is it listed on the website.

    Yeah, Paul.

    I still need to get that done. I took the TRP, Ithaca, and Doublestar all to the range together.

    +1 on that. That will be interesting to see how those stack up. 3 heavy hitters in the "high-end production" segment.

    When they first put out their initial run of pistols(the ones that had machine turned barrel hoods and a presentation case),I called and talked to an individual who was in the 1911 department at the facility.

    A lot of vague answers were given as to my questions about forgings and small parts as well as assembly.

    I would really like to hear more of their story.
    They are a local company, and the company has a lot of history in the shooting community.I am all for continuing a firearms company's tradition.

    The GI version isn't listed on their site anymore. They only made 50 of them.
    MSRP was around $1500 and the few that I have seen pop up on gunbroker and auction arms are priced at $1500

    I am sure it will be hard to get feedback on the GI version because of so few actually made.
    The sad part is, they could have sold a bunch if they weren't priced so high. For the same money you can one of the two other versions

    It was a fun day at the range. I have all the data. I just need to get it typed up. Unfortunately, writting isn't nearly as fun as shooting. :laugh:

    I don't have anything against them, I am just wanting a more traditional looking pistol.
