I am looking for my first 1911 and I joined this forum to get an idea of what to look for. I've noticed there seems to be no mention of the Turkish Girsan. Bud's Gun Shop has them available at prices cheaper than Armsco models. According to Bud's customer reviews they are a great gun for the money but I usually take those kind of reviews with a grain of salt as I think some of them might be to puff up the product. Also, I haven't been able to find any other site that sells them. Does anyone know anything about them? I figure I would get a more unbiased opinion from this forum. I am more or less budget minded so would prefer suggestions in the lower price ranges of 5" size models. Right now I am leaning towards a Rock Island FS Tactical. Thanks for your help.
