Re: High Standard 1911's?
The Hi-Standard 1911 is made in the Phillipines by Armsco ( I read that somewhere) . You can do better for the $$.For about $100 more, you can purchase a Springfield Armory 1911-A1 Mil-Spec . Almost any 1911 can be made into a reliable weapon with a little work. But, you get what you pay for.
Personally, I think the newer Charles Daly or Auto-Ordnance 1911's are better than the Hi-Standard and cost about the same.
If you decide to purchase the HI-Standard 1911, throw the mags away. They are junk.
