I wanted a gun that I would take pure-GI parts scavenged from gunshow tables- including barrels & firing pins.Prior to Auto Ordnance being acquired by Kahr in 1999, A/O’s 1911’s garnered a checkered reputation. I had owned one of the early guns, and worked on several more that were owned by law enforcement acquaintances. Then I found a local dealer with a new “WWII” model, which had seen some rough handling by prospective customers.the results turned out better than I expected, despite the rough barrel and GI sights: I contacted Auto Ordnance and told them what I had found.To their credit, they shipped me anything I asked for in replacement parts.The thumb safety was all but inoperable, requiring two hands to get it into the “safe” position. The gun was ultimately purchased for a fraction of its retail price and I went to work on it shortly thereafter.The holes and ports in the frame were in-spec and crisply done, and the rails on both parts looked real good.A little careful fitting produced the proper “snick” in both directions.

Buy an A/O if you’re a builder, or as a shooter if you have exceptionally good luck.You just might get a perfect one- but if your good fortune is that predictable, maybe you should buy lottery tickets instead!Brownell’s got yet another order from me, and I got busy scrounging GI hammer & sear pins, etc.The fact A/O guns are American made was a substantial consideration.

The fact that they are one of the few 1911 makers who, by their own account, work off pre-war blueprints was another significant factor.Some Navridex ‘double diamond’ grips added another touch of class- and these welcome additions made the gripping gun feel like the handshake of an old friend.
