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