The word “classic,” when applied to pistols, often brings to mind the iconic M1911A1, a gun that nearly all enthusiasts would love to have in their collection. Of course, originals are pricey these days—and once you’ve acquired one, bringing yourself to fire it, potentially devaluing your investment, is always a difficult decision. Which is why Turkish manufacturer Tisas created the 1911 A1 US Army, a handgun built to the near-exact likeness of a military-issue M1911A1 and now being imported into the country through SDS Imports.

Just like its genuine counterpart, the Tisas 1911 A1 US Army is a recoil-operated, semi-automatic, centerfire with a 5.02" barrel, and, as might be expected, it is chambered to fire the classic .45 ACP cartridge from a seven-round detachable box magazine.

Tisas has pulled out all of the stops to make the 1911 A1 US Army a dead ringer for the M1911A1. Its chrome-moly-steel frame and slide are finished with a deep Parkerization that has a hint of olive-drab coloration. More importantly, it bears all of the changes made to John Browning’s original design in the early 1920s. This includes a shortened trigger, an arched mainspring housing, scallops on both sides of the frame just behind the trigger, an elongated grip safety and a shortened hammer spur. In a nod to practicality, the Tisas’ ejection port has been lowered a bit, compared to the genuine article, for improved reliability.
