Auto-Ordanance 1911 .45

So I "pulled the trigger" yesterday on my 1st 1911 pistol. I don't have a ton of money to spend right now, or I would have got a colt of kimber but this is made in the USA so I got turned on to it. Anyone have one? How do you like it?
I bought it yesterday but I'm in CA so 10 day waiting period..

I have a Rock Island Armory 1911. I love the 1911 its a great weapon and a good caliber! Some of them dont like hollow points though as the feed ramp is kind of steep.

I have had one for about 5 years, nothing but success. They may not be the best .45 out there, mine has operated flawlessly.

I did put a different trigger group in it just to lighten the pull up a little, its a shootin mamba jamba now.

I have a Kimber 1911 and it's an awesome gun. I wouldn't be concerned that you didn't spend "big bucks" on a 1911. A trigger job, some trimming in the right spots and some custom grips will make it feel like you spent a lot of $ on it.

Its hard to go wrong with a 1911. As stated by someone else even the cheapest ones can be made to operate like a 3k weapon. The weapon system has just been around a long time. Congrats.

Ditto! I love the 1911 platform, depending on what you want to use it for (concealed carry, target practice, home defense,etc etc) you can have it tailored to suit. And you don't have to drop major $$ to make it perfect for you. Chances are it will work perfectly right out of the box. Congrats on the purchase! One thing I would recommend right away is a couple high quality mags, like Tripp Research, Wilson Combat or Chip Mccormick. I have personally used Trip Research and Chip Mccormick mags and loved them both.
