A friend of mine asked me to help him sell this gun. I can't decide whether to help him sell it or buy it for my own use.

Attention 1911 and STI experts, please help me check the authenticity of this gun. It looks like an old model of the STI USPSA single stack series with some minor modifications.

The etchings of USPSA and the USPSA emblem were very fine and detailed.

To me, it looks fake, though the workmanship is fine, it still is not an STI.
It's just a copy.

james,

consult mo muna sa trusted gunsmith mo kung orig yan o hindi, they know based sa toolmarks. from the looks of it, dito nachrome yan.

and i really doubt kung may ganyang edition ang STI

hehe! ayos yang ginawa mo bro james... buti nai post mo.. Parang STI lang siya para sa akin... anyway another way to check is the license card kung STI ba yung nakalagay, but though di pa rin concrete proof pa rin yun..kasi pwedeng pina amnesty then pina engraved ng ganun at pinalabas na STI siya... I know you are more knowlegeable bro in determining its authenticity, kasi expert ka diyan..:supergrin::supergrin:

Thanks for your feedbacks mga bros. It looks really nice kasi and if you can see the workmanship, very clean ang gawa. The edges are cleanly cut and the etchings superb. I'll try to show it to Col. Bayang and Metrillo just to be sure. But since everybody is saying that it's a fake I won't buy it anymore.

Big big thanks mga bro.

nkakita na ako ng ganitong klaseng ayos na gamit sa isang forum, i dont know when and where, but if my memory serve me right, gawang col. bayang siya.. pina engraved din ng tulad yata ng ganun ng may ari...

well tama sila, if presyong pang amscor naman at may mga kasamang freebies pa, e ayos na rin..:supergrin::supergrin:

Someone is passing out a fake sti and most comments were that it was a knockoff and advised the buyer not to buy it.

And Im not French but i kiss that way :)

In my opinion....fake USPSA single stack. A friend bought one, it looks more pulido. Chaka if you bought a 160K-170K (correct me if i'm wrong on the price), why would you have it chromed like that? Chaka STi trigger is plastic, baket chromed siya? :) The slide and frame looks like it was hammered.

Enjoy ang mga comments a. By the way, the gun is being sold at P25K. I saw rollmarks on the slide and barrel. No. 6 ang nakalagay. According to dbiggershot looks like a Norinco. Nakablack chrome kaya ang ganda ng dating. I won't buy it anymore. In fairness to my friend di rin nya alam na fake yun. Thanks to all your comments.

hi, its basically a discussion whether james should buy the 1911 or not. the conclusion in the thread is that its likely a fake STI.

Mukhang Danao nga to. Look at the MSH retainer Pin. Ganyang ganyan yung nakita kong Danao. I'm almost sure na di ARMSCOR yung frame. Iba yung shape ng trigger guard. Watch out for headspace problems.
