So far I've only had time to clean the gun thoroughly. It appears to be very well built. I'm very impressed with the fit and finish. It seems solid, no loose parts. The sights are very bright and visible. I'll be bringing it to the range this weekend. It's made in Turkey and it's stainless finish is great. I'll keep you posted.

Wow, what a bargain!!! This gun shoots great! 110 rounds later and you can't slap the grin off my face. It's a bit more of a handful than my 9mm was... but I'll get used to it. So now my new motto is " Shoot, clean, repeat." as often as possible... I just picked up some Hogue grips to try...

Actually I traded for it at Hoffman's., I walked in looking for ammo, and walked out with a new gun.

They have another one there on a dark color with a laser on it. It has a rail. 350$. I liked the stainless one myself.

Looks great!
It doesn't keep you from doing any shooting, but I wonder if Turkey ever produced .45 ACP ammo... I know there is a lot of 8mm out there with the MKE headstamp, even though it doesn't appear in their current offerings list.

And the really cool thing is it accepts genuine Colt parts. My buddy hooked me up with a National Match barrel and bushing and it fit like a glove! Can't wait to put a few down the pipe! Damn good imitation. Colt mags fit too!I'm diggin' it!
