SDS Imports 1911

I saw an ad at Centerfire Systems for 1911's imported by SDS Imports and the price is attractive. When I went to the SDS website, I wasn't able to find the country of origin or the manufacturer. This brand is new to me and I had never heard of them before. Does anyone have any experience with their guns? Are they jam-o-matics?

From their website:
The 1911 Duty B45 is an upgraded 1911 in 45ACP with many high end features at a very resonable price.

- Rotary hammer forged hard chrome plated barrel

- Hammer forged frame and slide

- Black Cerakote finish

- Novak style three dot sights

- Flared and lowered ejection port

- Extended beavertail style grip safety

- Slide release lever take down hole chamfered

- Enhanced hammer and trigger

- Extended and ambidextrous thumb safety

- Beveled magazine well

- Trigger housing undercut

- Flat main spring housing

- Series 70 internals

- Includes one 8 round magazine, cleaning brush and owner’s manual.

- UPC: 742309782460
MSRP$449

They're made in Turkey

No idea on quality but they seem to be flooding the market

I bought a Girsan 1911 recently. Other than the proprietary optics plate and a somewhat tight magwell (fore and aft), it's performed reliably for me. I like having a proper light rail, and I did finally find a holster to fit it. Not the same OEM as SDS (which is Tisas, IIRC).

Local shop has them for $419. Have never fired one but looking at them in the store I would say they are going to give RIA a run for their money.

I think it's good to have more guns to choose from, and I hope it's still available when I get back to the US later this year. I have a Canik 9mm that shoots well, so if this Turkish gun is made to the same quality as my Canik, I think they'll sell a lot of these guns.

I have a Tisas full size and a commander 1911 in .45. They were imported by Zenith Firearms. Zenith did some custom work on the full size. The commander ran well after I ran about 200 rounds through it. I’m satisfied with both of them

Military Arms Channel on YouTube had a nice review of the SDS 1911 earlier this year ...



When they're available at Kentucky Gun, Classic Firearms, etc, they run in the $380-450 price range.

There are 2 or 3 of them at Horst and McCann, Bel Air Gun Range. I didn’t handle them but they looked ok, which doesn’t mean much. They do have the wide spur hammer.

That was a good review. The gun didn't have any malfunctions with different magazines, was relatively accurate, and for around $400, it would be a good entry to the single stack division. I think I'll get one when I return to the US later this year.
