    Given the same gun to two people with different skill levels, can you tell who is the better shooter? I guess so. Given two different guns to two people with the same skill levels, can you tell who is the better shooter?

    The point here is that both guns may or may not be good shooters depending on the people using them and how it was tweaked by a gunsmith.

    This gun versus gun thread will never end because of a hundred or even thousands of opinions that may come in.

    Your consideration will always be availability and budget in your part of the world.
    Colt made the 1911 tradition. Norinco made it more popular because of the price.

    pepe,
    both guns belong to a common type M1911, both manufacturers have their recognition as to what it may be....i own an armscor yet have not encountered any problems with it almost two years now, in contrary a friend of mine owns a colt, but decided to do away with it..one thing also to consider is the aftermarket support, in which armscor has the advantage...

    i think ID ranger1911 is not comparable to Armscor, it could be possible for SAM

    STOP OR MY WIFE WILL SHOOT!

    Armscor has already a proven track record, but "niceone" is correct you got to tune both especially the shooter.

    Imperial Defence Services is an outfit in the U.K. and their 1911's are made in Vietnam. Sometime ago, the pistols were recalled. The one's you now find in the stores (here in Manila) are apparently the "better" ones.

    Nonetheless, I'd rather go (and have gone) for the Armscor-made pistols. ISO 9001 certified and exported to over 40 countries implies that the pistol is of a certain standard. I've examined the Ranger pistols and they ARE nice. But I've got an Armscor GI and not a Ranger. And many of you know why.
