Is anyone familiar with the Magnum Research 1911? As in shot one, used one carried one, etc? I've read several reviews and of course all the armchair warrior opinions on the Innernet, so would like some first hand observation. I picked one up in the gun shop the other day while comparing 1911's and it seemed like a well made gun, nice finish and smooth. Is it worth th the money-around 650-700 depending on where its bought. I compared it to a Springfield that was close to the same money, and frankly , it seems like a nicer gun. Made in Israel, I believe. I perused the MR website for info, and find a very brief description, however it doesn't mention a firing pin block, does anyone know? By the way this would be my first 1911.. Thanks in advance for any help. Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
