I never owned one of their .45s, but they 'appeared' to have a nice product at a good price.

I'd be interested in knowing the answer to this myself. My dealer currently has one that has bomar style sights, ambi safety, beavertail, and some other bells and whistles, all of which look like quality parts. Anyone have any experience with one of these guns?

Never had or shot one. I do know "Gun Tests" tore em up for being Jamamatics. I seen in the shotgun news that Sarco had some of there parts leftovers as they went under. Seconds quality frames for 50 bucks. The only one I ever got to actually examine looked ok and the frame said A.P.I. on it.

What happened to Brolin Arms 1911

I own a Brolin Arms 1911 Gold series. I have had it for several years and it fires extremely well. I paid $400.00 for it with no regrets. It has custom wood handgrips, Mitchell adjustable windage and elevation sites, ambidextrious safety, beavertail trigger, custom trigger, and more.
<read the foum rules regarding sales of firearms> I am very happy with it. :)

I believe Brolin Arms were made in Michigan(?)

I had one of their compact models. I didn't care for the cone barrel and guide rod setup and eventually traded it off. Not a bad gun, just one of those that wasn't a keeper.

Weren't they actually made overseas, by two brothers named Lin? I heard that's where the name came from (BROthers LIN). The few I remember seeing seemed nice enough but not quite up to Springfield or Smith quality.
