Hello all,

I think I'd like a Sistema as a first foray into 1911s. It appears that cruffler.com is out of them for the moment. CDNN still has them for $300.

I was wondering, has anyone here purchased their Sistema from CDNN? If so, how did it go? CDNN doesn't offer a choice of grades, so I'm curious about whether I'm likely to get a grade 1 by JLD's standards.

Thank you for your time.

Most folks like theirs and said they are in great condition, although a few also said they received dogs. My experience is that they are mechanically fine, but may have a few cosmetic blemishes and need a small part or two replaced.

I have a website that I've been working on that deals with the Sistemas (it's a home gunsmithing site) and I bought the two guns from CDNN. I know that not everyone has had the same impression as I have but I gave CDNN the absolute highest rating I can for service. They really do go out of their way to make sure you are happy. If you want to see some pictures (well over 200) of the Sistemas that I got from them you can visit the site and read all about it.

Hope that helps with your decision.... BTW I just ordered another one today. hee hee

P.S. -- Sorry dsk....I know how you hate seeing a beautiful mil-spec get "butchered" haha.... But I promise to keep the new one 100% original... scouts honor. I wouldn't want to lure anyone to the dark side.


Take care:

I guess if we do that.....maybe we all earn the right to go home......

Also check out Auction Arms & the Gun broker;
I have seen original finish exc condition examples. Also some not import marked & sometimes with match # mag as well. The price
is about a $100 or so higher. But I think they are worth it.
