Tisas 1911 A1 Pistol Initial impressions

The Tisas 1911 A1 Pistol is a budget 1911 that closely resembles the sidearm carried by U.S. soldiers during World War 2 and beyond. Some of the minor changes from the original 1911 design are intended to make the gun reliable while maintaining the original look of the 1911 A1 service pistol.

The 1911 pistol is the most copied gun design in the history of firearms and greatly has influenced pistol designs of many other firearms. The classic 1911 A1 is a gun loved by history buffs and firearms enthusiasts.

I own a couple Tisas 1911 pistols including the Tisas 1911 Carry model and have been very impressed with them. The are very accurate and reliable when you use good pistol magazines. The magazine is a critical component in the reliability of any handgun, but especially the 1911.

There are very few differences between this pistol and the actual 1911 A1 carried by soldiers. One of the changes is the ejection port is opened up a bit more to help increase reliability of the firearm. The finish is not parkerized but is very closely matched to the original G.I. government 1911 pistols.

Someone who is a reenactor for World War 1 or World War 2 would be well served in keeping to as close to the original as possible if they carried one of these pistols. An improper grip on the Tisas 1911 A1 pistol will even leave you with hammer bite, just like the original.

Tisas has a history of making high quality 1911 pistols at an affordable price and the Tisas 1911 A1 Pistol is no different. The price of this firearm makes it very affordable for anyone wanting to get a basic 1911 but the quality of this gun will make you think the price should be much higher.
