New Tisas 1911 is sexy!
« on: January 18, 2023, 08:17:01 PM »
Couldn’t pass up a Tisas full size 1911 from Classic Firearms for $339 so I had to get one.  Rumor has it their fine pistols for the price.  So I grabbed the 1911 Duty and just picked it up today.  Gotta say, the finish is sexy and everything looks great.  Trigger feels great out of the box as well.  Can’t wait to get some range time with it. 

Here’s some eye candy.

That looks really good.   

I saw some of those models for sale and was tempted.  If nothing else, it has standard sights which are much easier to upgrade compared to the 1911-A1 model. 

Let us know how it shoots and how it feeds hollow points.

I've got the "Carry" commander size version of that in 9mm.
I'm pretty impressed with it so far.
The sights are described as "Novak style".

I dunno what they're thinking with that Regulator. For that kind of money, I want a beavertail grip safety with palm swell and a short (or at least medium) trigger. And some decent sights.

The one HeroHog posted is .38 Super.  They have a Hard Chrome Commander sized in .38 Super as well.

Hard chrome super shiny slappy cappy Pimperator pistol?

Thanks. No *expletive deleted*ing thanks. Huggy Bear went out with the 1970s.

My disgust with hard chrome is right up there with Patton's hatred for pearl grips.

When I said I wished they would pop one in .38 Super, I meant the EXACT same one that Lenny bought. Same configuration, same finish.

Armscor / Rock Island shows one on their site, but I don't think it looks as good as Lennyjoe's.

I think it’s just the black cerekote that just makes it look “different “ than other 1911’s.

Say no to shiny silver pistols?

Hell yeah I'll say no to those.

I have one stainless steel handgun -- my S&W 4506. It's matte stainless.

I don't even have any stainless revolvers.

I had one nickel plated S&W Model 36 years ago, but I ended up selling it to a friend's father because I just couldn't get past that shiny, soulless gleem.

It was not unlike looking into the dull, lifeless eyes of a hard-core liberal.

I have seen nickel plated guns, but I don't think I have every owned one. 

I do have a few shiny stainless revolvers that look good.  However, a really good condition blued revolver better.

I've got a stainless S&W Mdl 60. Works well for what I use that gun for.

I have a satin nickel 70 Series Combat Commander that I got for a song many moons ago from a friend that used to jump in and out of the gun hobby like a Mexican jumping bean.

I also have two satin stainless Delta Elites (One of them again for a song again from the same guy).

I've thought about getting a Rock Island, but I've heard that the Tisas are nicer overall.

What I REALLY want, however, is one of the S&W M&P 2s in .38 Super. I wrote them and asked them if one was going to be forthcoming, but they didn't envision it.

Hate glossy stainless but I like a well done matte stainless

Same. I don't like the look of shiny stainless, or even that satin nickel 1911 I posted, but the satin stainless on my Delta Elites is actually pretty sharp looking, IMO.

I'm a fan of Rock Island 1911s, I've got 3 of them. But after buying and shooting my 9mm Tisas, my bias is shifting a little. If I was looking for a new budget pistol and the choice was between a similarly configured and priced  RIA and a Tisas, I'd probably get the Tisas.

The Battleship Texas Foundation has this commemorative Colt Python for sale with engraving.  Shiny stainless looks good in a package like this.  Shoots good also.   =)
