Did this video help you?

Christian Bell: Did you buy a second and if so from where?

gin91652: I got the FX45 M1911 Military model last month. Very nice! Awesome fit! Very accurate! Put 200 rounds of cheap Tula ammo thru it without a single hiccup. I'm very impressed and happy with it.
I don't shoot competition and I'm not in a war zone killing bad guys every day, so I just can't justify spending big bucks on a 1911 that does what this one does but, only looks better doing it. And there's nothing wrong with the way this one looks!
For home and personal defense, it'll kill an attacker just as dead as a Colt, Springfield or Kimber. They're still "gonna miss dinner." I'll spend my savings on ammo.

Christian Bell: Do all ATI 1911's come with 2 magazines or just one?

Sandy Smith: just got the newer ATI Firepower Extreme GI 1911, it looks almost exactly like yours, I've fired 1,300 reloads through it so far without any problems what so ever! very accurate,  the trigger breaks at 2.5 lbs. super smooth!! and thinking of selling all my high end 1911's now.. ..

Chris Hutchins: Stock 1911a1's look better than tactical 1911's.

Pitt Pinz: what's trigger pull weight?

Jerry McHugh: I have the ATI FX45 w/ threaded barrel, and it is a beast.  Definitely on par with a Ruger in terms of fit and finish and for nearly 300 less.  One of the things that really struck me was that after stripping it apart, there were absolutely no machine marking I could find under the slide, in the chamber, ect... usually a really good mark for determining quality in manufacturing.  I will be looking for additional products offered by S.A.M. (ATI) in the future for sure.

50023boy: I just one for Christmas!

TheSpritz0: I'm a veteran, and I have to say this gun has AWESOME build quality!!!!

P.S.  The ONLY things I'd change ASAP is a longer Beavertail, and a set of Pachmayr grips to make it tactical!

spiff2268: Damn, yours came with Mec-Gar mags?  Lucky you.  Mine came with one ATI mag but it's worked really well so far.  Better than the Kimber mag I later bought.  Also, I would recommend changing all the springs out when you get a chance.  The slide spring it came with on mine got weak very quickly.  Otherwise, this gun has been great.

Pro2AGuy: You will have to search long and hard in order to find a single negative review regarding this model--Unanimous consent is that for the $ it is at the top of its Class. Several years ago the Regent line out of Turkey could be had at similar prices but soon spiked up to to $500 level. 

Sandy Smith: is the ATI 70 series or 80 series ???

Stephen Maurer: How many rounds do you have through your ATI 1911??  How is it holding up?

TheP1mple: not sure but I have heard that the reason it has the oil on it is when its packaged they have no idea how long its gonna sit around the warehouse before its shipped so they load it down with oil to keep it from corrosion.

John Mills: I am shopping for my first 1911 and this has been very helpful, thank you. I had assumed I would have to spend a grand on a Kimber to get a relaible 45 ACP but it seems there are a number of 'entry level' alternatives that might work just fine for me. Thanks again. 

TheAcenightcreeper: American Tactical "Made in Phillipines"

cwrowe: Tactical? No rail? Just my opnion

1000hightower: can you change almost all the parts with a different company's parts like a para ordinance on the sam's guns.

mickey johnston: YES SIR, I LIKED YOUR VIDEO. I BOUGHT THE COMMANDER SIZE ATI ABOUT THREE MONTHS AGO. I HAD TO POLISH THE FEED RAMP UNLIKE YOURS.MINE CAME WITH 8 ROUND ACT MAG. THE ONLY PROBLEM BRASS WAS HITTING ME IN THE FACE WHEN EJECTING. I GOT ON YOUTUBE, FOUND OUT HOW TO TUNE THE EJECTOR BUY FILING THE NOSE OF THE EJECTOR.NOW IT WORKS LIKE A CHARM, CK IT OUT.

Tyler Gustafson: i was told by a few dealers that ATI bought Colts original machines for making the 1911's when they get new machines, all i did to my ATI was polish the feed ramp and i have had no problems with it at all with 1000+ rounds ran through it, just a good clean and lube when done shooting

cb2k761: That joker voice was hilarious lol
thetramp123: I think you're giving it too hard on its graphics. For the system it's on it has to be one of the best looking games for the Wii. Sure it isn't 360 or ps3 but that doesn't mean graphics don't automatically look awful. I love the design personally and think it looks gorgeous on the hardware it has. 
Kris Minnear: You know that feeling you get when you think you are switching your camera to manual focus, proceed to film the event without double checking everything, watch the clips at home, notice that it looks like you had 6 Red Bulls before the races, look at your camera and notice that you actually switched-off the stabilizer instead?  Yep, that is exactly what I am feeling now.  I figured I would give the YouTube stabilizer enhancement a try.  It helped one way, but hurt in another.  For those interested in seeing the difference, or if the non-stabilized version here makes you want to blow-chunks, there is a link to the stabilized version in the description above.
BobrDrob: Cheap, but lame ...:) I had exactly this result with 2.5cm x 2.5cm piece of 3M DualLock velcro!! It is VELCRO and it holds 4.5kilos.
Keith Lamb: own my ass
Press X to Watch: I'm sorry that you saw this as nitpicking; however, our reviewer (and a quick internet search reveals that he is not alone in this thought) felt that there was a lot of potential lost in the mechanics, which to him lead to a game that was not as fun as it could have been, given how the game looks from the outside. He still thought the game was decent, just disappointing.
RC62: This video was done almost 4 years ago. I don't recall all the details but I agree the levels were a bit too high. I was using an inexpensive external mic (an Olympus) with a foam windscreen attached I think.
