Looks like he took an inexpensive 1911, spent a bunch of money on it and made a decent shooter out of it.

Just the view from my saddle,

Well, I've ordered one from a Canadian distributor, and when it arrives, I'll shoot it and report what I think.

Well it arrived this morning, delivered to my door by Canada Post.  First impressions:  love it!  But two issues remain:  I have not fired it yet, and I have nothing in the way of 1911 experience to comment on performance, once I do shoot the pistol.
Still, I will take it out and play with it seriously, and comment again then.
Now I need more mags and a rig for it.  Does the joy ever let up?

I have a strong feeling that the Taylor's 1911 described by Bottom Dealin Mike in another thread is the same pistol, or very very similar to it.  They both come from the Philipines and they look identical - almost.

I was at Quesnel's (Rope Burn City Bounty Collectors) CAS shoot on the weekend, and had an opportunity to shoot my pistol for the first time.  I loaded 50 rounds of .45 ACP with 230 gr. RN lead bullets over 6 gr. of Herco with a Federal 150 LP primer.  The first five rounds went into a two inch group at 25 yds. offhand, but 6" high and 3/4 inch left of centre.  My second mag (5 shots) I allowed for the elevation and windage, and chewed out the bull.  I'm delighted with the pistol!  I expended all 50 rounds without a glitch.
Since the sights were shooting high at 25 yds, I thought an experiment at 100 would be interesting.  The range has a ~ 14" disc of steel hanging at 100 meters.  I hit the gong with my fifth shot shooting offhand and all the others were very close.  this with a levelsight.

And now this brings me to a question:  for Wild Bunch, am I allowed to change the front sight to bring the impact to point of aim, and if so, does it still need to be the rounded military style or can it have a square back?  I want to shoot 'traditional' style.

Below are the rules for WB Traditional category 1911 sights.
I have cut a dovetail in my traditional pistol and put in a square front sight that I can machine or file to the correct height for me.
On my stainless pistol it is a stainless sight and on my blued pistol I used Cold Blue on it.
You can not have any white dots or inserts. Hope this helps.

• Only non-adjustable “military style” simple blade rear and front sights allowed.
The 10-8 National Match and the Harrison Design 003 are approved rear sights.
• No sight inserts or colored sights allowed. Sights must be black, blued, or
stainless.
• Front sights may be dovetailed, pinned, or staked.
• Any combination of blue, black, or stainless (natural colored) steel sights are legal.
