Welcome to the site where the owners and members have had it with playing "nice" and being "inclusive" and "tolerant" of points of view that are destroying the fabric of what made this country great. The members here are sick and tired of politicians of all parties lying, deceiving, stealing, and pretending they are doing it all for the good of the country while selling out to special interests who have the set goal of destroying this country. We have had enough of career politicians who use their office only for personal gain, and who refuse to listen to the people who put them in office. The membership is no longer part of the silent majority who play nice and get along while getting screwed by anyone with a loud voice and an agenda. We will no longer allow anyone to piss down our back and tell us it's raining. And we like guns too.

Default Buy Iver Johnson 1911 Or Not?

Seen the Iver Johnson 1911 45 acp. on the Iver Johnson web site. It is a pretty impressive looking firearm. I understand these are not the same as the old Iver Johnson weapons & are manufactured in the Philippines. I read an article that states the new Iver firearms are manufactured from the original engineering design.
Would like to know if anyone has purchased one of these and how they would rate it.

I wasn't even aware the Iver Johnson company ever made a 1911.

But, I've got one of those Philippino 1911's (RIA), and it's a definite winner for me.

I didn't know Iver Johnson 1911 45 ACP until now, looked one up, is this the dude?

By appearance I see nothing to complain about.


Iver Johnson 1911s are assembled in the Philippines by Shooters Arms Manufacturing, but they are made to Iver Johnson's specifications and design, using Iver Johnson's parts. Iver Johnson 1911A1 models have a forged, CNC machined slide, and a cast CNC machined frame.

"By original engineering design?"
"With good quality worksmanship?"

All that said, I've never even handled one.
We have replaced our Constitution with political agendas and political posturing and Washington, D.C., corruption.

When it comes to evil, to tolerate is to accommodate, to accommodate is to appease, and to appease is to concede defeat.

I have a Rock Island Armory built in the Phillipians, by ARMSCOR to the original army specs, everything I put in it it eats it up and spits it out. Hollow points, fmj, wad cutters, etc. I haven't found a round that it does'nt like. It is partial to the Wolf fmj steel case w/ the polycoat, 1" moa @ 50 yds. what more can you expect. paid $ 299.00 in 10/2005 right after Rita hit the southwest Louisiana coast, convinced the wife it was for protection. Now they sell for $399.00 @ gun shows, B-I-Law just bought 1 months ago just like mine, but mine is well broke in !!!!

RIA's are good 1911's

I have a Philippino customer who shops @ the store. Hates obama with a passion. I guess that makes him not one of the 5% of mudslims from there. He likes guns & American muscle cars. Never says much about the Philippines.
