Did this video help you?

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!

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.

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

50023boy: I just one for Christmas!

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

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. 

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.

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.

TheAcenightcreeper: American Tactical "Made in Phillipines"

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.

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. 

joe dufey: hello i just put 550 rounds throw the ati titan in the beging i have fail to feed about 4 times and 1 stovepipe other then some of the edges that need polished i lie the gun overall well made not a kimber or colt but not a bad gun at a third of the price of those

dahldsmith: SAM corp. the Rival of the Armscor corp... SAM is using good grade metal as what others do .. hopping you try the stainless ATI thunderbolt 1911 .

Jonny Deth: If it shoots reliably don't bother. Build an AR or something like the Bullpup Airsoft stock with a Ruger 10/22 in it or even a plinkster which I see at Walmart on sale $107. These guns are nice and obviously better technology than the HP's but HP owners will insist all the time. Polish the feed ramp and tune your magazine lips. You will never have failure to feed or eject. My second AR will be built for about $700 with 6 30-rnd mags. Much better investment than the 1911's I was considering.

consumes: i have the 4.25 in commander model ... i think its a great weapon for the money ... it does take several hundred rounds to properly break in .... you may not be able to fully load the mags when there new ... but as it breaks in .. things loosen up and it become much more reliable ...

JanCguns: Its a great handgun, check out the video I have of the wear and tear and " white rust" that can form on them. The only real problem i've run into and its really more cosmetic than anything.

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

nemisans13: yea try building an ar for that cheap right now with all the prices in full retard.

kwilkin9: Yeah, my pistol says S.A.C on the slide. ATI does manage the warranty / repair issues here in the states, for the ones they import.

kwilkin9: Hello, I just bought one of these I and wanted to update folks on how they are shipping now - the one I purchased only included 1 magazine, and it is an ACT Mag, an Italian aftermarket manufacturer. Also, the gun is actually manufactured by Shooters Arms Corp., which is a big co. in the Phillipines. ATI simply imports them into the US.

funa mota: Is it California legal

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

nemisans13: I just bought and shot this 1911. No mishaps w/ nosler hollow points n fed hst. The nonexistant beaver tail isnt an issue for me i have small hands. What AM changing on this is the crap barrel and bushing fitment n perhaps polishing up the feed ramp a tad more. Im planning on a oversized kart barrel with matched oversized to slide bushing from brownells n having a smith fit it, then an ambi safety (im a lefty) and maybe some 3 dot sights and finishing it off with a burnt bronze cerkote, cf grips

BALJIT147: I just ordered one of these and I can't wait.

Jonny Deth: I just ordered one of their multi caliber lower receivers. $43.95 on the website which is of course out of stock. $125+15 shipping from a reseller! lol Their receivers have really solid reviews and while it's a website, they look like they really have things together. The prices are friendly as well. Looks like a great gun. American is always better if only because of economic reasons but we all need to buy what we want rather than go without. I have 2 HP .40's American but VERY simple guns.

makin1905: amrscor actually is a seperate comeny, they do not make these SAM does. I actually bought this model today, well got it on layaway so in a few weeks Ill be getting it.

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

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.

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.

JanCguns: Also when I purchased mine brand new, one mag was act ACT Mag and one was a Mac Gar.

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

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

JanCguns: Hmm that makes sense. I knew they were manufactured in the phillipines, but I didnt know it was Shooters Arms Corp. Isnt ATI ultimately responsible for the quality control in the US?

joshford60: Informative video man. I came across this handgun online and was thinking about it for my next purchase. After watching this, ive gotta get one.

martez39: Hey Richard, I'm not sure if you've purchased one of these yet or not, but there's nothing wrong with your Hi Point. If faced with an uncompromising situation, your Hi Point 45 would do the job. Good luck with pursuing this 1911.. Let me know how you like it!!!

Richard Hayes: I really wanna order one of these from Bud's Guns, but I'm so poor right now! I'd even trade in my Hi Point 45 for it, but I highly doubt anyone will give me decent credit for a Hi Point.

cwrowe: Tactical? No rail? Just my opnion
