Went by a pawn shop today that I pretty much don't ever go in. They had two Ballister Molina Argentine Armada .45 pistols for sale. They looked like 1911s, but did not have grip safeties on them. Mechanically, except for the lack of grip safety, are these identical to 1911s? Are they any good? One was $350 (all orginal) and one was $420 (aftermarket grips).

EDIT:
Never mind. After pokin' around a little bit, i am loosing interest in these. I want a meat and potatos 1911. I think I will look at getting a new G.I. .45 instead. At least if that goes down, I can get parts for it unlike the Armada.

Armada just means "Navy" The Ballester has very few interchangeable parts. Magazine, firing pin, barrel? Beloved by hatters of grip safeties but that's about it.

If you want an Argentine Colt get a Sistema 1927, those are 100% interchangeable with a 1911A1.
