Win some lose some

Date:April 3, 2014
I will start out by saying i agree with the other reviews, this is a pretty accurate 1911 for what it is. I did have some FTF and FTE in the first hundred or so rounds. However I got the green parkerized version and the feed ramp was very thickly parkarized. After the first 25 rounds I broke it down and polished the feed ramp, no more FTF. After that i broke it in a little more and no more FTE. Now my most recent problem is that i lost my front sight ramp while shooting one day. I knew this was an old problem with kahr and was a possibility when i bought the pistol so im not actually all that mad. Now don't get me wrong i love this pistol and enjoy shooting it, but i find it annoying that i have to stake a new sight in, and with no gunsmith for a hundred or so miles i have to do it myself.

Some Quirks But Decent Overall

Date:August 27, 2013
I was impressed at how accurate A.O. was with the appearance and feel. The trigger is the exact length of the originals. 3/4in. I put about 65 ends of federal 230 grain and mine jammed 3 times... But then again its been shot once so it may need to "break in". I think its the mag though. Mags that come with 1911s have a reputation of being total garbage.
THE ONE THING TO REMEMBER IS BEFORE SHOOTING ANY 1911 ALWAYS DRENCH IT WITH REM OIL OR SOME OTHER GUN LUBE!!!
Overall its a fine piece... But I still swear by colt.

Good purchase

Date:December 28, 2012
I was looking for a basic 1911 with military specs. I feel I found what I was lookinf for in this pistol. First 100 shots was very accurate, only negative issues were trigger was about 8lbs. and the 7 round magazine that came with the gun will jam. No good throw it away. Other wise I am completley satisfied with the pistol.

Auto-Ordnance 1911pkzsew

Date:October 10, 2012
Hello,
These 1911's come in three models, all the same except for the one mentioned in the above title, it had the real wooden grips. I was looking for a basic 1911, good quality, reliable, and in a price range that I could afford. I can honestly say the fit and finish was excellent, zero FTE, one FTF after 82 rounds of 230gr.ball ammo, along with a few rounds of 185gr. JHP. I would absolutly bet my life on this weapon. Only negative thing was the 7rd mag that shipped with the pistol, no big deal, bought wilson combat mag's(47D) which I was planning on buying anyway. Buy one, you will not regret it.

Just like the Army

Date:March 27, 2012
I purchased one of these in October. I was looking for a 1911A1 that was the best copy of an Army issue like the one I carried over seas. This hand gun is it. Down to the parkerizing and left hand rifling. Also it is made in theUSA. Excellent job.
