    I don't care for rails, baby turd color 1911s (Raider) but I'd go for the MAC model if I can find one.


    Riots are like sports, it's better to watch it on TV at home.

    LGS gave me $275 in trade for a CZ 75B omega, so basically it was the cost of a rental gun (one way to rationalize it). Perhaps just a fluke, but will never buy any Turkish made firearm ever again.
    Itís the risk of buying suspect makers. They will get some right and you can get lucky and other times you can get a dog. Itís all part of the sub $500 gun game. Good luck getting it up and running.

    Overall, Tisas seems to have a pretty good reputation.

    I've shot both, the MAC is objectively the nicer gun with more features. The Raider other than the rail is a pretty basic 1911 (no checkering, smaller safeties, etc)

    I'll take the JSOC MAC if I had to pick, for sure.


    Tisas is making these slightly cheaper guns more competitive.

    God Damn! Those are the ugliest grips EVER!! The 1970s wouldn't even like them!

    That's a bit rich. Tisas is very well established and makes as good an everyday firearm as any manufacturer.

    That sucks. I'd like to get one of their 9mm pistols, and would be ok with an occasional malf since it'd be a range blaster only. But constant stoppage is a pisser.

    Picked up a Tisas 1911 because 1.) Did not have 1911 2.) Price was extremely cheap. Result: absolute pos, constant jamming, regardless of mags used. Subsequently sold it back one week later to LGS where I purchased it. I took a bit of a loss, but better than melting it down for scrap iron. Phuck turkish made imitation weapons.

    In all fairness. The 1911 has been fuX0red up by many many companies. Shit! Kimber has a entire company built on dog shit 1911s.
