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 ???

Jesus M. Ramos: Purchased one about a month ago (Commander Model) and so far I have not experienced any problems yet, it has a pretty tight fit,slick action, decent trigger pull and it is very accurate. Why pay a thousand dollars plus for a high ranking 1911 pistol, yes it comes a little oily but nothing a good cleaning can take care off. Mine will digest any ball or hollow points without any problems.  Tested using Tula (Russian) cheap metal case ammo and top of the line hollow points.  Highly recommended.

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

fpopee: update on my ati gi model.......365 bucks out the door,,,,nxt weekend itll eat its 1000th round,including 150 plus steel case rounds..not a single freak up.,,,no complaints from me.......its an attractive peacekeeper too.....best 365 ive spent

James McIntosh: Would this pistol be considered "Mil-Spec" with interchangeable parts?

Dep Qua: how can you review a gun you haven't shot and say it's worth the money?

Francis Rodriguez: When I first purchased one of these (new) it was DIRTY as hell. Never had to clean a gun before I used it new before. I like the gun, other than that.

Münchhausen trilemma: It's unbelievable how not a single person questioned at the beginning was able to explain it even in a simple way. This is sort of like the allegory of  the educational system's decadence I guess.
