Has anybody seen one of these? Seems like a great setup.

The MAC dealer locator lists a couple places local-ish to me.  I might be curious enough to go see if it's available.  But then if there's one available, and it's nice........dammut.  

I'm a big fan of the Tisas Service special I bought last year.  I got one of the $300 parked blems from Centerfire Systems.  The blem was is light spot in the park about the size of a dime, just ahead of the ejection port.  It is nearly criminal to pay only $300 dollars for that gun. I've read the hit-n-miss reviews, but I got a super sweet one.  I can only imagine how it would act if it were to get a massage from a good 1911 house.  

Let's say this gun is on-par with my Tisa GI, it's main competitor would be what?  Something from Springfield's Loaded or TRP lines?  At half the price.....

Yeah, I don't know how much fortitude ill have resisting these if they are good to go. I have been thinking of grabbing a couple of different Tisas, a 9mm 5" Duty and a .45 Raider, but now I'm thinking I might have to find one of these instead.

>The qpq finish is very classy, Cerakote is practical, but the metal treatment seems a lot nicer.
>Crowned stainless barrel
>Brass bead and Bomar rear
>Textured front strap
>walnut grips
>mag well

The only thing I can see that I would have preferred would be an undercut on the trigger guard, but its not a huge deal, and it might take away from the 80s aesthetic they are going for.

I don't think there is anything really in direct competition with it right now, and I need to get a few Tisas, Usually when something good is going on the imports suddenly end, and we're back to over $1500 for something like this.

That's how Delta had their 1911s set up for quite a while. It's to protect the sight from drops bangs etc.

It certainly does.  Wouldn't be surprised if we see an MEUSOC-ish clone out of them soon.

Some of these guns use long out of production parts (which is the fun of cloning), but I can see some people just wanting something that looks close for a decent price.

If you watch LAV on 1911s for any length of time, he says repeatedly SA is the the only big OEM worth it.  He'll tell you; If you can't do a Wilson's custom, then get a SA and start.  Even he says Colt isn't as Colt as Colt used to be.

Ok.  Never really watched too much LAV at all...

My SA OP TRP was my second 1911 after buying a cheap RIA to see if I even liked the platform at the time.

I have since expanded a bit more.....

Also interesting that SA Custom built them but used Caspian frames and slides.  I think he basically says Delta had such good luck with Caspian they weren't willing to change.

Commie dictator governor was making noises about 10 round mag limit on weapons so I decided to up my 1911 inventory a small bit.  Got a GI and IIRC an Operator...  had some improvements over the GI.  Both nice and tight.

You're not alone there. I remember during the Clinton years, a lot of people got into 1911s due to the AWB making them a very attractive option.

Safety on the right side - no use to me.

Doesn't appear to have the FLGR so that's a bonus.

Nothing too difficult to overcome but it should fit all the most popular WML out there without issue.

The rail on the 5" guns have an extra rail lug so I don't believe there is an issue with them.

Doesn't look like a bad pistol, especially at it's price point.

I digg... but they need to chill with the branding.

Kill the knife-MAC logo and revise the font to look like a GI style- or go virgin slide.

The grips can be replaced. Lots of options that would look classic good on that.

My only pause is the ugly rollmark on the left side of the slide. I agree that a virgin slide would look better.

Yeah, it does have a lot of the cool features that you'd see in the gun magazine cover models.

I just went ahead and ordered one. For $700 shipped, these are a great deal for what you get. I always wanted a 1911 with adjustable target sights and this one has the cool classic Delta Operator look to it.

I wonder if these are a limited edition or if they will be dumping a lot more on the market?

The offensive rollmark is on the right side- it's the "knife-MAC" logo.

Cartoons behind the serrations is a modern fad that kills the retro vibe.

I get that the left side markings are intended to emulate GI Slides... but the legitimate representative example that keeps popping up in pics uses an Isr*eli hard slide... and Tisas did not even spend a minute duplicating the correct font and spacing.  

Virgin slide is 100% the way to go across all the models, but they've taken a step in the wrong direction recently with the Rambler, the Gambler, the Trucker, etc... and now this.

It's frustrating because they are 98% of the way to Victory, and they could even save production costs by not ruining their product marking it all up.

Forged slide and frame

tool steel internals

checked front strap

crowned stainless steel barrel

nitride finish

Nice sights

Even if you need to tweak it a bit and slick it up you are still way ahead money wise. Looks to be a hell of a value!

It’s got a lot more going for it than the raider for not much more money.
