Yep! I liked it. Nothing against them. I'm just stubborn and would rather buy one made in 'Murica.
Yay Philippine 1911s! I'm stuck between a Sig and a Springfield...
Well, if you really want to be a true red white and blue flag waving American and keep your money on this side of the pond your choices are both flawed.
Sig is a Swiss/German company. They may make their 1911s here but you have to wonder how much money goes "over there". Their non-standard slide is also a big con to me but my wife owns one and it is a great shooter that has been flawlessly reliable.
Springfield is an American company but most of their 1911s are either made in Brazil or assembled in the US with parts made in Brazil. Great guns and service though.
Dan Wessons are a favorite of mine, and they are 100% American made, but they are owned by CZ in the Czech republic. Though I am told they have lost money for the last several years so you could say no money is going overseas!
If you really want an all-American gun get a Colt, Smith & Wesson, STI (except the Spartan line which are made in the Phillipines), Kimber (not a fan) or Ruger.
I am not trying to lay a guilt trip on you. I have owned HK, Sig, Glock, Tikka, Sako, CZ, Springfield XD (made in Croatia), and others I am sure. I find myself buying American more and more these days (I just ordered a Les Baer 1911 myself) but I am not obsessed with it. I am just saying that if American made is your goal, make sure you know what you are buying.
