A search of the Forum resulted in very little info on these pistols. Anyone have any experience w/ the WWII Parkerized model? I'd love to shoot the 1942/3 1911A1 - but its unfired and PERFECT - so this would be a fairly painless although (probably) imperfect substitute.

Thanks,


Roger

I am just repeating a few things I have heard and am not by any means the expert. Auto-Ordnance 1911's apparently have had some quality control problems in the past. They were recently bought by the same people that make KAHR and are supposedly taking steps to improve quality and market stature.

Ociebell:

Thanks for the info.

I'm going to go visit one at a dealer tom. afternoon to give it a look. Although I'm not sure if its at all possible to make any kind of informed decision w/o firing one (or knowing someone who has). The pricing seems low, perhaps too low ... which makes me wonder.

Best regards,

Roger
