When it comes to the more affordable side of civilian reproductions of classic firearms, few names are as well known as Tisas, a Turkish firearms manufacturer with a US branch in Knoxville, TN. Tisas is proud to introduce their new walnut gripped 1911A1 pistols. Following up on the popularity of the previous iteration of the Tisas 1911A1 which featured plastic grip panels, Tisas now includes genuine walnut wood grips with their 1911A1 pistol.

    One A1 with its sucky sights is enough for my safe. But I do love the arched mainspring housing, as it fits my hand much better. My daughter needs a 1911, but after buying her an AR15 for her birthday, and three hundred rounds of 5.56 that were delivered to her today, a Tisas may be the only thing within the budget for the next six months. Anyone have an opinion as to how these compare to the Rock Islands?

    That is a great price. Hell that's what I paid for my Colt government, brand new back in 1980. It says "series 70 internals", no collet bushing & barrel though. This is a great project piece.
