Can you buy a good 1911 under $500? The 1911 pistol is the most copied handgun design in the history and is loved by gun enthusiasts from around the world. The Tisas 1911 is from a company with a history of making good quality firearms at an affordable price.
I’ve always been a 1911 fan and regularly look at adding to my collection. While visiting a local gun store I noticed something shiny that caught my eye.
Lying in the display case was a commander sized 1911 with an all stainless steel finish. The gun looked great lying there and it looked like it needed a home. The price for the Tisas 1911 worried me at first. I thought it was to cheap to be true.
After comparing the Titas 1911 to a few others they had, I decided to take a chance and buy it. I had heard of Tisas firearms as a company that made reliable firearms at very affordable prices.
The 1911 pistol is not for everyone and most models must be broken in properly before they are reliable. The magazines for a 1911 can make or break the reliability of them. It is important to always use a quality mag.
After getting a few hundred rounds through my Tisas 1911, the gun easily cycles defensive ammo. The gun has shown itself to be reliable enough that it is one of the few 1911s I own that I will regularly carry concealed.
I’ve had my Tisas 1911 for nearly a year now and it is one of the best 1911’s I own. The fit and finish on these pistols is very impressive for what most would consider a budget 1911 pistol.
