Considering purchasing a budget Commander Size 1911 to simply have a 1911 in the collection and to see if I like 1911s enough to invest in a higher end version.

what are the 1911 aficionados opinion of the Tisas imported by SDS? I was thinking specifically of these two odels.

SDS Imports 1911 Carry Pistol-45 ACP For Sale - AtlanticFirearms.com

or

Tisas B45R Semi-Automatic 1911 Pistol 4.25" Barrel .45ACP 8rd - Black Cerakote W/ Accessory Rail

I am also considering a not so budget friendly SA EMP Lighweight Champion. know not a true 1911 as it has been scaled down, but I like the look of them and the current generation seems to get good reviews.

Springfield Armory PI9211L 1911 EMP Champion 9mm Luger 4' 10+1 Black Hardcoat Anodized Stainless Steel Slide Crossed Cannon Cocobolo Grip

Or just keep looking for a SA Range Officer Champion in 9mm or .45. So many choices…

Your input is appreciated.

Might as well start with perfection.

If RIA makes a commander and it's as nice as my fullsize was, that's had to beat. It's one of nicest 1911's I've owned.

I can't help you on the Tisas though. Never owned, held or shot one. I haven't heard any horror stories about them either.

I have had an Auto Ordinance 1911 for 35 years. Feeds everything, never a problem.
Liked it so much, I bought another one.

Right now, whatever you can find is what you get. You can always sell it.
