Tisas Trabzon is one of the better Turkish firearms makers these days and they have been bringing in their 1911-style single-action pistols for the past 25 years or so, marketed under a variety of names (Regent, Omega, etc.) by folks like ATI, Brownells, LKCI, SDS, and Umarex. They have a good reputation for using solid steel, forged frames and slides (rather than cast), hammer-forged barrels, and a minimum of cheap-o MIM parts (something that guys like S&W, Ruger, and Mossberg can’t say).
With that background out there, Tisas USA is now sending a 10mm-chambered 1911 to the American market.
Branded the D10, it is generally a GI-style 1911 but with a list of semi-custom features such as an undercut trigger guard, 25-LPI checkering on the front strap, a flat mainspring housing, extended beavertail grip safety, adjustable sights, an ambi thumb safety, and a skeletonized trigger.
Cost is $799, which puts it just a lil bit more expensive ($50-100) than comparable imported 1911s from folks like Rock Island of the Philippines with their Ultra FS and fellow Turkish-maker Girsan’s MC1911 Hunter brought in by EAA.
However, it is way less spendy than a domestically-made Dan Wesson RZ-10, Kimber Rapide, or Ruger SR1911 Target, all of which go well over $1K.
