Bul Armory SAS II Ultralight

YES! SAS II UL Is On It’s Way Home!

I received an email from Bul Armory yesterday evening. They stated that the gun has been repaired!

While it was there, they also did a performance tune-up of the gun.

An explanation of the cause of the issue was not provided, but they did give me a listing of the things they did.

The pistol underwent a full inspection where we made sure all the different components are within spec.

has been polished chamber also the ramp was moved forward and polished as a extra
adjusted mags specs
checked extractor tension
fitting slide/barrel/ejector
grip has been adjusted/thumb safety

All the safety components work properly and the pistol was then test fired and works well as it should.

I’m happy the grip safety issue was fixed, but I didn’t want anything other than that to be fixed. With their tinkering, they may have introduced faults with the gun.

We’ll see how it is when it’s returned. I will have to take it to be shot Monday or Tuesday evening.

I sent it to them on 12/22. I planned to give them approximately 30 days to fix the issue before contacting them. They finished it a few days before I would’ve called them. That worked out better than I’d planned.

They also stated that they’d “adjusted mag specs”. I sent them one mag (of the four that I had) because I didn’t want to send them all and not get them all back.

I’ll probably also record a 10 min video on Monday, as well.

Stay tuned!

2011 9mm Tisas

Tisas is Now Producing 2011s!

So, I was checking Reddit today and saw a post that Tisas had listed a double-stacked 1911 on their website product list. Within an hour, there were like 5-6 other posts (in the r/1911 subreddit).

I decided to check the product page and was shocked. I thought they’d produced a Para-patterned 1911, but they actually produced THREE (3) 2011-patterned 1911s. They producted a 5″ variant, a 4.25″ variant, and a 5″ variant of their Night Stalker SF.

Not only that, but typical recent budget 2011s offer optics cuts that remove the rear sights. The Tisas variants will allow the rear sights to stay in place when using an optic. They’re also using 1/3rd co-witness of the rear sight through the mounted optic.

What’s the difference between Para- and 2011-patterned handguns? Para-patterned guns have the grips a permanent part of the frame. The frame and grip are one piece. 2011-patterened handguns have modular polymer grips that are separate from the frame. Many folks confuse Para-patterned double-stacked 1911s as 2011s, when there’s a distinctive difference.

Anyways, here are two videos: one of the 5″ Duty DS and the other of the 4.25″ Carry DS.

UPDATE (2/8/2024): I’ve removed the YouTube videos from this post, as the publisher marked them as private. It’s a bit annoying, because the publisher was Tisas.
