Re: We know you ride, but do you Shoot?
Dark international has a double stack norinco 1911. I need to go out his way & get a feel of it. They say it has a wide grip, but so do Sigs. Normally I like to get a feel of the guns before I buy them.Rocker Guy - don't know what your budget is - and I know you said double stack - but - Marstar is selling the Norinco 1911 for $400. I like 1911's too and have a couple of nice ones (not Les Baer nice) and I was never able to bring myself to buy a Chinese made piece. It's impossible to get more bang for your buck, though.
Forged steel frame, adj. rear sight, full length guide rod, ambi safety, oversize mag release button. The fit and finish are much better than they were a few years ago - still not where the US stuff is, but at way less tha half the price - you can do a bit of "finishing" yourself. I spent a few hours on mine and I'm pleased with how it looks and functions. Got the tricgger breaking clean at 3.5 lbs - I can live with that.
