    Thumbs up Hunter!

    Another very informative article by Hunter. The article has peaked my interest in USFA. Just like his article on the Colt New Agent prompted me to buy one, which is now my favorite carry gun.

    Hunter proves again that he is a very valuable asset to m1911.org and E-zine online magazine.

    Wow, another factory tour..."it's good to be you".

    I'd love to see them produce a 1911 in the same manner at lower prices, $800-$1,000...all barstock, traditional working specs coupled with modern techniques/machines, etc.

    Based on "street prices" of various brands, I would not think it's more costly to produce a 1911 than a SA revolver?

    Great article Hunter, Thanks.
    Do you have the itch for a USFA yet? SAA or 1911?

    Thank yall so much for the kind words.
    I believe USFA is making an effort to lower the costs of their firearms but they are a small company.
    I would like to try one of their single action pistols to get a feel for it.

    Great review! Thanks Hunter - just would love to have one! Their end product sure does look good and your review supports that it is built as well as it looks!

    Did you get to see any of the production of their 1910 and 1911 pistols?

    I did see many of the "1911" parts but they were not manufacturing "1911s" when I went through the factory.
    At the time it seemed everything was devoted to the single action models.
