The old AMT Hardballers were good guns, dang near equal of the Colts of the time, except they were only offered in stainless.
And, if memory serves me correctly, many parts were interchangable, so it could be slicked up to match a Gold Cup Colt. A friend of mine, up in Ohio, took many groundhog with his.
At $400, sound like a good deal to me. And, being of the M1911 pattern, any problems are easily user-fixable.
