ATI Firepower Xtreme GI 1911 9mm Semi-auto Pistol
If you've been looking for a 1911 chambered in 9mm -- one that retains the ergonomics of the original -- you know your options are limited. Well, here's a good option at a great price. ATI has developed quite the reputation for delivering rock-solid quality and value, and here's yet another feather in their cap. The FX9 GI is a commander-length 1911 that stays faithful to the classic 1911s, in look and feel.
It features all steel parts and mahogany grips, as well as a nicely-done parkerized finish. It utilizes John Browning's classic cam-action design, and the lock-up is tight, as are tolerances in general. The safeties, mag release, and slide release controls are unobtrusive and right where they should be. In short, it's a classic. The only thing different is the chambering.
