Any reviews on these? Pics? They look solid and well built but have yet to hear anyone talking about these.

They look like a gimmick to me. Put all that pretty case coloring on an "eh" pistol. They make killer shotguns but I am not convinced as to the 1911. For the money you can get a Wesson or a Baer and know what you are getting.
There are some reviews out there and I believe a discussion or two here pointing out some issues.

While not a fan of CCH on a 1911, I have seen and handled several of these guns and they seem well made. They also make a nice Colt SAA clone. I believe the price of both the 1911 and the SAA have jumped about $500 since they were first introduced.

I've heard they're a real good option and worth the price. I have one of their SAa and they're very nice.

OK. initial impressions compared to what I remember of my ruger SR1911. beautiful finish, nice trigger, almost to nice to actually fire, I dont like how firm the grip safety spring is, all steel even the main spring housing and the grip safety is steel. being new, it was a real PITA to disassemble vs what i recall with the sr1911. haven't shot it yet. the magazine's appear to be manufactured in house as well? they are painted steel 7rnd mags.

Watched Hickok45’s review. I think it’s a couple of years old. I think he said it was a series 70 but the slide has the hole for the firing pin block. To me, that would seem to suggest the slide was made by someone else.

How’s the barrel lock up? Does the safety go on and off with positive clicks?
im no expert but it seems to have tight, but not I can’t rack the slide tight, tolerances. Safety does have solid detents from what I can tell. Overall, buy it if you like how it looks. No plastic or powdered metal parts as far as I can tell if that maters
