  1. For the pricey snobs out there, this is for you. I bought a Tisas 1911 years ago after trying out several much more expensive handguns manufactured by the snobs preferred manufacturers. The Tisas sold me on that it’s issued to the Turkish Military to NATO specs. I’ve had several ex-snobs buy one after firing mine at the range. Very accurate out of the box with a manageable recoil for follow up shots. I even got the seal of approval from my Son-in-Law, a Navy SEAL. He loved it and bought one over his Sig. Why spend hundreds if not a thousand more for something you might fire once a month at the range. It has gone bang every time I pulled the trigger when loaded. Just my thoughts and experiences.

  2. The article doesn’t mention the cause of this issue. I don’t own a Tisas, but I’m impressed with their response. I’d be interested in knowing what caused this. Was it a batch of poor quality hammers with badly cut cocking notches? That, or very heavy hammer springs would be likely. It doesn’t matter if someone has had no issues with their pistol. If they have one of the listed models, they should return it for the recall service. Failure to do so, opens up the owner to a lawsuit, if their firearm suffers a negligent discharge, resulting in injury,
    and it is found that they ignored the recall.

  3. Excellent customer care. I’ve butted heads with an American company that still — after about six years — hasn’t gone public with what I found.
    Yay for Tisas !!!

  4. I think it’s good that they are getting in front of something that could potentially become an issue later, unlike say the SIG 320.

  5. I have the 1911 A1 model. It’s great and I bought it from a NRA gun magazine review giving this model great recommendations. I have had zero negative issues. Point is I am impressed that Tisas covers the costs and stepped up to accept responsibility. Unusual in these days and times we currently have to live in. Anyway,,, For what it’s worth?

  6. Tisas says the hammer will follow the slide forward. If the hammer gets past half cock on a series 70 action it can fire. Scary.
