I just got my new ATI FX45 TITAN. It looks as good as expected. I am planning on a range trip tomorrow if the weather cooperates.

I never understood why ATI calls a commander the "GI" though. :dunno: :headscratch:

If the TITAN is as good as the MILITARY and the GI, I will be happy. ATIs are definitely good guns for the money.

I just played with the stainless steel model in the local gun shop and I'm very impressed with the excellent triggger. The safety lever snick in and out of places with ease. Very nice workmanship for very nice price.

Nice. I've been pretty curious about these, so I'll be eager to ready your range report.

I think they may be the best Filipino 1911s on the market, actually.

Well guys, the range report is as follows.......

:supergrin::supergrin::supergrin::supergrin:

This is one fine shooting officer model. It is smooth. It is accurate. It is solid. Best of all, it is not expensive. For you guys looking for a nice compact .45 1911, you really need to take a look at the ATI FX45 TITAN.

Sounds good, what all did you feed it? I've always heard that the short barreled 1911's were finicky.

How does it compare to the RIA compact. Like the looks of the ATI better.

I was using Monarch brand .45ACP 230 gr.

My LGS can can get me one for $435.00, is that a decent price?
He gets $401.00 for the GI 4.25"

You will save shipping charges and FFL fees

Buds Gun Shop has them for $425 shipped. Of course, you will have to pay a FFL dealer for the transfer and possibly sales tax. If your LGS can get it to you for $435 , that is a good deal. You may come out better on that deal. You may want to ask him about having him transfer one for you if you ordered it from Buds. Inquire about his transfer fee and what additional charges (sales tax, if any) there would be. He would need to provide Buds with a copy of his FFL.

I really like the looks of the Titan, I might order one this week.
The GI was going to be my next 1911, but the Titan is more unique.

Honestly, I would seriously consider the Titan as a front runner in the 3" 1911 considerations had I not already purchased and invested heavily in my S&W subcompact.

I've found it's better to pay 10-25 extra bucks locally on something as they will work with you on a future purchase on ammo, gun case, scope, etc.. Has bad big divedends numerous times.

I'm a little unsure about a Titan now...

I've found even more negative reviews besides the one I posted above, I'm going to pass on the Titan.

I would not put a lot of stock in what you read over there. They rip apart just about any gun that is not a Colt or a "Made in USA" custom. They talked mainly about the recoil spring assembly and taking it apart and having difficulty getting it back together. There is no reason to disassemble the assembly. When I cleaned my pistol, I removed the spring and guide rod assembly, wiped it down and reinstalled them. If it is not broke, why try to fix it. If you monkey with things too much, you are going to screw them up and that is what these guys do. If I ever experience a problem with my TITAN, or any of my ATI pistols, I will call ATI. I am glad I bought the TITAN and a bunch of naysayers will not deter me from it one bit. I would still highly recommend the pistol. If you still choose not to buy one, it is your right. All I can say is that you are going to miss out on a nice little pistol.

Do these Officer size 1911's have a full size grip, or is it a bit smaller?

The grip is about 1/4" shorter.

I want to order some magazines for the Titan, are they a different size than a standard 1911?
Will McCormick 7 rounders work?

I just saw one of these at the LGS. Felt really good for the price. I may have to set aside some extra $$ to pic one up. Hopefully it'll be reliable enough for carry on occasion.

right on James. i love my new agent. hasn't bobbled on anything. folks are tentative of 3in 1911's. i understand. but if it works, it works. and i love officers frames. fits my hand perfect. for those who carry a GM concealed and find it comfortable, imagine .25 shorter aluminum grip frame and 2in. less barrel length.
