Seems like info on GIRSANS in general, and the HUNTER model in particular is difficult to come by. I love 10mm 1911's and really all 10mm. When I saw the GIRSAN HUNTER FDE model, it started that seed growing. I started looking for info, looking at prices and who has them. All my normal online sources were dry holes. GB was the only place that I could get 1.
Fast forward to last week when I checked with Davidsons. 1 local to me source claimed that Davidsons was out for weeks.
Anyhow, Davidsons confirmed that they had them in stock. I then called my favorite LGS GUNWORLD & ARCHERY in Elko Nv. Farnes, the owner gave me a price that equaled the best that I'd found online, but I didn't have to pay CC fees, shipping or FFL transfer fees. He had it for me in 3 days.

Heres pics of the field strip clean and lube. She came WELL lubed, but I also wanted to check things out.

It comes in one of the nicest cases I've seen from an OEM.

The machining looks great.

Some cheap 1911's have some over travel on the thumb safety. Not this 1. Its properly tight, clicks into position. Its good.

Nice checkering on the back and a bit less on the front, but at this price point the front checkering is a bonus!
She runs a full length guide rod which was expected given that this is a 6" barrel.
The fit on the grip safety is very good.

The barrel is nice, but it aint no bull! Oh well.
I'd call that FULL CASE SUPPORT.

The slide lock is MIM, but that don't bother me. I'm sure that there are more MIM inside.

The front sight is not the best, but thats an easy fix. I'll probably just do some paint because I have a pistol scope that I'll be installing.
The slide stop pin is well done.

I took her to the range Sunday. It was a short stint because it was in the mid 20's. She was shootin WAY LOW. The adjustable rear sight was at full low. But I did run a couple of mags. One mag was rapid fire and we had no issues with that.

Stay tuned.

Well done, that looks very nice. hope you can get the sights figured out,so It's not shooting low, beyond that, it looks great! Congratulations
