Rossi, even thought owned by Taurus, the Rossi's just look, well, sort of cheap!
Chiappa, don't really have any experience with the brand, but the ones I have seen just didn't appeal to me enough to even consider buying one. And to be honest, they may even be great guns.
Kimber! They have a crappy warranty period, and poor customer service from what I have read for years. With the amount they are charging for a so-called top-end 1911 platform pistol, I expect way more than they deliver. I would only buy a Kimber used and for the price expect that it has issues and pay accordingly.
Para-Ordinance, it is more about ergonomics. Those pistols should come with a side-load sign attached to them! I don't have huge hands, but I do have long fingers and they are even a bit wide and uncomfortable to me.
Remington. I add them simply because even though I use to be a huge fan of Remington products and own quite a few, even a Remington R1 1911 pistol, it seems their QC has slipped badly over the last few years. I'd still buy Remington, just older models.

Hi Point. We called them ghetto guns when I was working.  :th_nuts:

Though Hi Point has the reputation of being considered a "cheap" pistol, they are surprisingly very reliable and decent guns. They also have one of the best warranties in the gun industry.

Take one out and shoot it all day long, with even crappy ammo, and try to tear it up! :wave1:

Too bad I can't vote "Glock" twice.

It's not the pistols I loathe (they're actually not bad) as much as the incessant BS that comes out of Glock fanboys.
9MM may expand, but .45 ACP never contracts!

Exactly! Here is the funny in an ironic way, many of these fanboys, have only owned a Block, or it's the first pistol that they have ever owned.

So many times I have asked quite a few of them, what is their basis for comparison, against other brands of pistols to say that Block's are the best? Trying to get them to quantify their statements, is met with the deafening sounds of crickets!

Brother,,,,, you said it.  :thumbsup1: :th_thicon_funny: :th_thicon_funny:

Dunno,,,, it's like they catch some sort of doofuss brain virus off the thing.  :th_thicon_lol:

I have nothing against the manufacturer. . I  just have no use for striker fired plastic. I dont care WHO built it. I DONT  like striker fired plastic. Period.

The manufacturer  got a good reputation, unfortunately,, most of their owners do not.  :bangheadonwall::th_thicon_lol:
