Did this video help you?

apathy2673: I just got the Military version on Cyber Monday. I'm pretty sure the GI is the same contents now too. It comes with only 1 mag made by in Italy by ACT, Cable lock, Instruction manual, a little ketchup pack of gun oil, the stamped signed certificate. The price was cheaper at just under $400, the price difference seeming to be the lack of a 2nd mag, so was it cheaper really?

Art Brown Sr.: NO Manual? That is strange!

Carlos Santana: I recently bought this particular 1911 and couldn't be more happier with it. The only thing is mine came with only one mag, but also came with a lock. I figured it was supplied by the manufacturer, but now I'm not so sure. I've taken it to the range and it fired smoothly. A buddy of mine came with me and while he normally uses his Sig, actually loved it. I feel it doesn't need any changes but I may do a few tweaks once I'm very acquainted with it.

skyefalcon6: Can you tell me what brand/type grips those are? TIA

caloyjr 1911: range report pls.

Anthony Arena: very good nice detailed review of this 1911 pistol. would appreciate some feedback on how well this pistol is holding up now since posting this. considering one of these and would like to know if any issues surfaced since you've owned and shot it now awhile, assuming you've done that. thanks again and would like to hear back from ya.

caloyjr 1911: Good guns folks!

big mike: does it shoot jhp good.

Jay Dee: At about the 9 minute mark, you mention the manufacturer. This gun is actually manufactured by S.A.M. Inc. (Shooters Arms Manufacturing) and imported by American Tactical Imports. Rock Island is manufactured by Armscor, who also makes 1911s for Citadel. I have guns from both manufacturers and well pleased with both.

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.
