Rebuilt or not, you're still buying a used G.I. spec 1911 for >$600.

That's silly [to me] unless you absolutely must have a genuine Mil-Spec, Mil-Issued sidearm for your collection.

Meanwhile I can get a Rock Island 2011 Match pistol for $750.

If it looks like an STI clone, that's because Armscor contract manufacturers the stock frames for STI.





or their .45 Match for about the same price

I'm with Heist. The CMP sales of these are marketed specifically for collectors. Anyone who isn't one would be much better served buying new. I can get a 1911 with special request features for the price of a rack grade from CMP. No contest.

New silencer made from an exotic ITAR controlled alloy used on the nozzles of NASA's rocket. Claims to be the strongest alloy ever used in a silencer while having equivalent lightness of Titanium.



Crazy how silent this thing is. Go to 15:13
