American Tactical Imports, or ATI, is a new-to-the-game, worldwide importer of firearms, ammunition and tactical equipment. Based in Rochester, New York, ATI currently seeks to bolster their reputation by providing customers in the United States with not only high-quality products from all over the world, but also by providing the same world-class customer service exhibited by existing well-established companies. Part of that service includes a two-year limited warranty on all imported products, which covers parts and repairs.
The ATI 1911 is, as one may expect, imported by ATI. It is, however, manufactured in the Philippines by Shooters Arms Manufacturing, Inc. Though not as much of a newcomer as ATI, Shooters Arms is an arms and ammunition manufacturer that provides its services both domestically and worldwide. Additionally, the company subscribes to a vision very similar to that of ATI, a vision that is continually being realized and is backed by the company's strong track record of high quality, performance and reliability.
As noted, the ATI 1911 boasts a MIL-SPEC design and dimensions, which makes it an affordable alternative to the more expensive models on the market. But where many other alternatives sacrifice features or are chambered for an entirely different cartridge, the ATI 1911 reproduces faithfully each component characteristic of the M1911 while retaining its original .45 ACP chambering.
The ATI 1911 features a five-inch barrel alongside an overall length of approximately 8 1/2 inches. Though ATI imports a number of different 1911s from Shooters Arms, the pistol available today is the "Military" model, signifying its MIL-SPEC dimensions and handling. With that said, a complete 4140 steel construction is joined by a blued finish to protect the parts from rust and corrosion. It is also marked by its mahogany wood grips. Other features include a fixed front sight with a standard combat rear sight, a beavertail grip safety and a manual thumb safety.
Those looking for a MIL-SPEC 1911 without breaking the bank are sure to look at the ATI 1911 as a viable option. Consider this pistol for:
- Personal protection and concealed carry
- Target shooting
- Much more…
