I have a friend interested in one these pistols,1911 in 45acp. Does anybody know much about them? I'd never heard of them. Any input would be appreciated.

    Here's an info page on the manufacturer- - - - -made in the Phillipines:

    It looks like it uses a double stack magazine, 12+1 capacity, which will make the grip frame a little porky for anyone with average-size hands.

    It looks like an STI match pistol that I had about 25 years ago. I have average sized hands and it fit my hand fine. I still own two double stack 1911s and with a flat msh and thin grip panels, they're not as porky as you would think.

    Didn't Para-Ordnance market a double stack 1911 several years ago? I think Gun Parts Co. ended up with their inventory eventually.

    They still make them. I have two from the late eighties/early nineties, a P-12 and a P-14. The P-14 was my open class pistol in the early 90's and the P-12 was left stock and was my CC piece for several years.
