    New (to me) .45 Auto

    I was in a gunshop yesterday and saw what appeared to be a brand new M1911A1.

    The tag identified it as being a High Standard.??

    Talking High Standard .45

    Yep, they make them down in Texas. I think they are owned by Armscor. The Rock Island Armory and High Standard are the same gun with different roll marks.
    Here's there webb address. http://www.highstandard.com/

    AMERICAN HANDGUNNER had a very favorable review of the gun in their last issue. I haven't shot one, or spoken to anyone who has, but the review was decent.

    High Standard makes some guns in Houston -- and they imports some from the Phillipines --- very close to and made at the same place as the Rock Island guns.

    The American Handgunner comparison was with one of their import guns.

    I've got a couple of the Houston made guns --- nice pieces. I haven't seen/held an import gun yet.

    Rrent that's a sharp looking .45 you got there. If it shoots as good as it looks you got a winner. Good luck.

    Baldy -- thanks

    I bought it used ---had a failure to return to battery issue ----I tweaked the extractor a couple of times and then replaced it with an Ed Brown extractor and haven't had any problems since.

    The only 1911 I have that outperforms it is a STI Lawman that I paid twice as much for.
