Deal Details

Last Edited by Teldin March 1, 2013 at 12:00 PM
(my first deal post, go easy please)

Received a deal alert from Buds Guns yesterday. They have a TISAS Classic 1911-A1 45ACP 5" GI BLACK for $400 (cash & equivalent price) with free shipping. I'm a long time gun fan and I've never heard of TISAS, however the gun has many great reviews. Unfortunately the gun is NOT on the CA DOJ list so I can't purchase one.

I have an observation;
When I was shooting IPSC competition .45s were, generally, rated major and nines were minor.
The proof was in the pudding, FOR ME, when shooting the large steel plates.
A good hit with a .45 slammed the target to the ground.
With the nines, a wise shooter would keep shooting that plate as it leaned back, because it was likely to remain standing otherwise.
Kinda made a big impression on ME.

Centerfiresystems has those Rock Islands for $419 on backorder, compact for $399 also on backorder. As long as it is on the list for Cali, they will ship to you according to the website. Other than the recent ammo price gouging, they have been pretty decent to deal with.
Those are great prices, but I know of a couple local dealers I can buy from for nearly those prices. When I picked up my RIA tac last year it was $449, the GI and compact were both less, between $429 and $409. When the prices are nearly the same I try to give my business to my local dealer(s). The best price around I've found is $50 for FFL and transfer fee, total. Our state really took the appeal out of buying firearms from out of state... most dealers are $75 to $100 for this service.

Could someone please put a muzzle on pointbob? he's spreading rabies through this thread.

A 9mm vs .40 vs .45 doesn't really belong here, but since it seems to be going anyway... There is no substitute for how much lead you're throwing with each bullet. The more lead, the more stopping power. The old (1950s?) ads for a 1911 claimed 1 to the chest could stop and drop a a man at a full run. I don't doubt it. Will a 115gr 9mm match what a 230gr .45 can do? I don't think so. Then there's the reports from our military that their M9's are not enough to drop an enemy. Keep in mind that they are required to use FMJ ammo. We do not have that limit. A good hollow point 9mm will create a would cavity that should ALWAYS be able to drop a bad guy. That's the key. Without the added weight of the bigger bullet you really need a hollowpoint bullet.

personally Id rather have a rock island armory 1911 for about the same money.

lots of claims about the quality of this gun, but lots of reports of failure too.
id stick to a known quantity and made in USA
Rock Isands are made in the Philippines.

Does anyone know if this pistol has a cast or forged frame?

This really depends on who set the match up. Generally, the plates are set so that 9's can knock them down with a solid hit. 45's will knock nearly any plate down, and glancing blows from 9's are penalized by a "hit-or-miss" knock down rate. I love shooting steel myself, but my glock 34 sometimes takes a double tap for one or two plates every range day. I have, however, been to matches where they intentionally set them too hard for 9's to get, which just kills me. Also, if you found a way to get your .45 into minor, you did something wrong. xD

This looks like a great deal. For those of us stuck in California there's also the Rock Island Armory (RIA) 1911's that can be found for $450 and up. The come in all sorts of flavors like GI, Tactical, Commander, etc.



OMG, lets not turn this into a discussion on best calibers for home defense. Even the EXPERTS argue on the subject.
my first firearm was the rock island armory 1911. i was very uneasy about the gun purchase at first, as it jammed a lot. it has a recommended break in period of about 500 shots... it still jammed at around 1k. but after about 2k, it hasn't jammed on me since. loved it since. great purchase, for a great price. the only difference between high end 1911s and these, is the amount of personal attention each firearm gets. the nicer ones have polished feed ramps, and additional mechanics attention to certain parts of the gun. after that, the extra costs go into brand, marketing, and location it is made.

my currently only complain about this gun, or any other .45, vs a 9mm, is the price on ammo... if this is someone's first gun purchase, i would seriously consider if you want the extra pow per shot, which will cost you an extra few hundred with each 1k of ammo pickup (typical amount i pick up at a time)

Mine was always major with just a little extra to compensate for temperature variations. We almost all loaded our own ammo.
One can, certainly, load a .45 to minor... though I can't imagine why, unless it was just an error.
We used to set the plates by hand wthout any calibration. Sort of like; "get me a 2x4 'cause this plate is falling over in the wind". We'd just try to get them balanced upright.
Nice to meet another competitor; howdy!

You californians should just get a prescription for this gun...
Medical 1911, for anxiety or paranoia.

Of that I have no doubt. But the original query was about an intruder - not a steel plate. The human body is about 70% water and a .45 or a 9mm would be equally effective all other things being equal. Personally I use RA9T in my Glock 19 as it will effectively go through denim. Now if the intruder has body armor...

As has been stated numerous times in numerous other forums - it is all about shot placement - but I am sure you know that already. Wink

That said, I think this is a slick deal - just make sure you have ammo!

Good price but I hate Bud's and looking for a compact.
I see a lot of hate for Bud's but I've never actually dealt with them myself, is there a particular reason for it? They seem to have pretty good prices.

retail is 410.97 save 10.97 and it makes fp? wow
this gun is garbage btw. you just bought a nice paper weight.
again retail is 410.97 from a no name manufacturer.

words I live by,
cheap things have no value, valuable things aren't cheap.
I own a kimber 1911, and a wilson combat 1911.
I will put my trust in these babies. money is no object when your family is at stake.

Was yours one of the early ones that had some off name brand magazine? Mine came with a mec-gar and I bought several more, but only mec-gar.

Fixed it for you

.45 acp or 9mm both suck about equally Wink For a handgun round they are decent but I'd rather have a long gun in a gunfight but I digress.

The best advice I've found is find a caliber and a gun you like and practice with it.

Not everyone can afford to drop $2000.00 on a handgun, lord knows my wife would shoot me with it if I did. When were were dating I bought an HKP7M8 for $1600.00 new in box with 4 factory magazines. She thought I was nuts!

Don't be a gun snob, there are plenty of $400-500 firearms that work perfectlly well, now if this is one of them? I honestlly don't know. For a primary defensive weapon I'd get a Glock 19 over this. IMO this is more for those that want a beater 1911.

So, a 357 Mag has a lot less stopping power since it has less lead than a 45?shake head
