ATI 1911
« on: April 25, 2019, 11:16:32 AM »
Howdy All,

What is the scoop on the ATI 1911?

Are these $385 Pilipino made pistols on par with Rock Island, Ruger, S&W, Sig, Colt, Kimber, for a traditional WILD BUNCH side arm?

For a traditional I think a Remington R1 might bebbthe way to go.

Springfield mil-spec is a great Traditional Wild Bunch pistol.

Almost every ATI ive had in the store is cheap and low quality. However their STG44 copy in 22lr is a fabulous gun. Never ran across these but id doubt Id want any 1911 for that price, rock island included. Hell for that price you can get two Hi Point pistols that actually work!

I disagree that Rock Island 1911s are functionally  inferior to quality of Rugers.  The Government Model  Rocks I've had never missed a beat, digested all of several thousand rounds of 45 acp ammo that i fed them.  I'm considering the purchase of another, either 45 CCO or a 9mm Gov't.  To each his own!

Can't speak for ATI quality.  Check the 1911 forums for info.
