Does anyone have any experience with these?

Have you read the information on them in the commercial carbine section? I would suggest that you do take a look.

I'm sorry, I thought this was the proper forum for Inland's 1911 A1 Government pistol.

I wrote Inland about the pistol and was told that some parts were "outsourced" from Auto Ordnance but assured me that all parts for the pistol are of U.S. manufacture. These are a cast frame pistol that seem to function well and are solidly built. The only "malfunction" (if you want to call it that) was a lanyard loop had broken off cleanly at the pistol frame's base. Aside from that, the same pistol had functioned flawlessly both before and had since.

That sounds as if it is a pretty sound assessment (and endorsement) from the owner himself. If that's the only thing that has gone awry, it tells us that it is still a well-built pistol.

While it may not be perfect, I welcome another all-american manufactured 1911 A1 Government type pistol form whish the buying public can choose.

Look into the Inland 1911 A1 Government pistol yourself and see if it is the pistol you want to own.

It is entirely up to you.

The message Capt. is if you buy an Inland 1911 A1 or carbine, your really buying an AO with a different name. And no I would not buy a 1911 A1 no matter who made it. There are much better firearms made today then the old 1911 A1.

Tuna: You may get an argument from a lot of other shooters about this, but you're entitled to your opinion.

I simply find it fascinating that such a pistol, conceived and executed more than 110 years ago. is not showing any signs of dying, but has been and is still increasing... at an alarming rate. There must be something to it.

Tuna, I love my 1945 Remington Rand 1911A1 pistol and will compete side-by-side with any other handgun on the market today, at least for the first 7 rounds! And IF I can't get it done in 7, it won't matter how many more shots I have!

I have an original Dan Wesson Razorback (one of the first 150) pistols produced during the period wen Bob Serva was at the helm.

I would not trade this particular 1911-pattern 10mm Auto pistol for all the money you could throw at me. It was custom-manufactured for me by Bob Serva at Dan Wesson arms. Because it was manufactured to my specifications, I am truly a part of firearms history.

Jim I have an older 645 S&W that will put anything I fire in it in a circle of 3 inches for 50 rounds at 25 yards. If I reload 185 gr. lead it will shoot even tighter but it shoots the 185 gr. bullets a couple of inches low. 230 grs hit point of aim dead on every time. I have shot a lot of 1911A1's and 1911 models too in my many years but they cannot compete against the 645. Oh and I can put a fired case somewhere in the loaded magazine and fire it. When it goes click the fired case has been chambered it's that good. I will not ever buy one of the plastic guns no matter who makes it. Never have to worry about limp wrist holding it. Hey if you ever have to throw an all steel gun at someone you know you can at least hurt them. And I get an 8th round too just in case my old eyes don't see quite as well as they used to.

If I could have but two S&W self-loaders NIB today, they would be a 645 and a 1006. Theey are both dead-nuts reliable and accurate. You couldn't ask for better service from a sidearm.

Tuna, if I need that 8th round, I'll just go to my Kimber! I swear that thing is radar guided! It also eats anything I care to put in it.
