US Firearms 1910 and 1911s

Virginia Gentleman:
Any word on when or if these will be put into production and released for folks like me to steal from their retirement fund in order to buy them? ;)

Bar Stool Billy:
 Personaly I think it would be a mistake for them to release the 1910 and 1911. First of all the market is saturated with 1911's right now, everyone and their brother makes one. Second of all if they don't change some of the features that I see on their prototype I would not bother. The thumb safety is to small for one and the hammer on the 1910 is just plain ugly. I am sure the quality will be good but they are not on my list of 1911's to own.

CW Price Texas Ranger:
Compare the proposed USFA 1911 against the SW1911 and for about $800 you get a good accurate pistol.  I can beat its grouping with my 1911 Colt, but the Colt is heavily customized and would cost a lot more than the USFA.  The SW right out of the box is IMHO very reliable, once the early models were sent back to SW for modifications.  The only real things I have done is put on Bloodwood grips and got rid of the one peice recoil spring guide rod because I dont like one peice rods.  Now, I would love to own a USFA 1911, but with the availability of good government models and the SW at far less money, I would not be buying one of them.  I feel that USFA has way overpriced their models.

Capt. John Fitzgerald:
Well, I have to agree with CW, but "a fool and his money"... (Me being the fool)

They are overpriced but there are some features I find appealing.  The original style finish and government markings, original style grips.  That one with the US Navy stamping appeals to me (I was Army but my Dad was a Navy officer during WWII).  Would I buy one?  Probably not.  Maybe.  I don't know.

VG,
As to when they will become available, that is anyone's guess.  You might try giving Gary Germaine at call at USFA and see if he has any answers for you.

Those two quotes pretty much cover my opinion of USFA getting into the 1911 race.
IMHO, it would have been a better proposition to have come out with an accurate reproduction of the Remington O/U derringer.
Everybody I know that is involved in CAS, wants one. They would not be that hard to manufacture with the equipment USFA has.
