Service - 3 stars. My FFls license was not up to date. No one from JG notified me. My order was on hold 3 days. Please call / email your customers.
Item - 4 stars. This pistol was advertised and sold as VG. It was delivered with rust on the front and back of the grip. Barrel and barrel bushing were rusted as well. It did clean up but left slight pitting. The cold blue matched well enough. I fully understand I'm buying a "used" pistol but if it is sold as VG it should not be rusty.
Pistol shows some wear but overall in very good condition. I’ve put roughly 500 rounds through this thing without a single failure of any type. I’m finding it to be solid, functionally reliable, and accurate. Well worth the money.
Great buy. If you like 1911s and 1911ish pistols this is a great low cost addition to your collection. I got two - a VG, and then a week later a G during the Black Friday sale. I think the finish on the G was better than the VG! Other than superficial finish both were almost like new; tight, butter-smooth, and with pristine bores. These were shipped very fast, as always; JG is the only dealer that at times has gotten handguns shipped the same day I ordered them, as was the case with one of these. Thanks!
The pistol I received was in great condition with some minor holster wear on the slide. There was some rust in the bore but it cleaned out very quickly and the rifling was in great shape. I DID NOT pick the hand select option. The sights were way off to the left and had to be drifted over, but after that it's been shooting pretty well. Very pleased with J&G's service.
