Saw that yesterday, it seems a bit pricey.

Looks ugly and at it's price, not even close to risking it when a SA Loaded can be had for under $800

For the money I'd opt for a pistol from an established maker with a reputable warranty.

Why take a chance on another generic 1911 which may or may not have a warranty you can trust, when there are established companies making every sort of 1911 in every price catagory?

It may be the picture but the finish looks pretty poor. I don't mind the design, looks pretty standard. I wish it didn't have their logo on it and some front strap checkering would be nice.

At that price and this early in the game, they have some tough competition.

Just my personal opinion, but from a businessman's perspective, I think they should have entered the market with an offering that would fit where the Ruger does in the market. Ruger is the only one in that spot. It has everything you need, nice features, top level parts, reliable, accurate, nothing extra, and priced right. It would have fit with their premium line of AR15s, where you get the exact same quality parts as Colt, FN, etc, but at a much more reasonable price. The premium AR offering forced the rest to reduce prices by a ton to keep up.

The Rugers are commanding a high price now, because they sell all they can make, and can't make them fast enough. A solid gun, with the right parts, at a mid level price.

From there, they could have started offering customized batches with better features, until they sold enough that there was enough good feedback to actually add a new custom line as a standard offering.

Low end 1911s, well you can't beat RIA / Armscor, and the market is saturated. The high end stuff, people want a name that is already well respected as a builder of 1911s, so they either go for a top name like Ed Brown or Wilson etc, or they seek out one of the many fine locals that have a great reputation.

IOWs, I was speaking of something they could sell at $500-$600 street price, MSRP of about $699.

looks like a les bear trs hard fit hopefully it shoots just as good and kicks his ass to the curb.

There will be people here that will buy them and report back. If the reviews are good, I'd be in for one because of the made here, plus quality etc. The new pic looks better

At long last! I was hoping they would come in at a little lower price point, but we'll see what happens.

Refreshing to see a dealer monitoring the forums. One of the reasons I like PSA.

Which parts are not made in the USA? Not assemled, PRODUCED.

I saw the guns a few months ago when my local PSA had 2 in for people to try out before they released them, and they actually looked pretty good in person. Unfortunately there was a waiting list to try it out so I didn't get to shoot one.

What sort of warranty accompanies these 1911s in the unfortunate event the need arises?

You guys take so much of my money already and now I'm interested in one of your 1911s.

I've been a satisfied PSA customer for quite some time.

Thanks for taking the time to reply.

Looks nice- good price point too.
I'd like to see one in the wild.
