I haven heard of it either. I thought that Century arms was just an importer. I have 2 military surplus pistols and a rifle that are from C.I.A. . I thought they just import them and etch their name on it . Is this specifically made by them ?

I have not had much luck researching this pistol. I did find a site: Shooters - Arms Manufacturing Inc. (Pistols)

The price was in the $430 range before T&T.

If I remember right it starts out as a 1911 gi then century puts a few upgraded parts on along with their name and calles it an elite but i dont know much else about them like who originally made them.

CAI .45 compact

Shot a friends Century Arms 1911 .45 compact yesterday. Very impressed and pleasantly surprised. For a price tag of $400 great deal. shot 200+ rounds with no jams or problems. I shot it with my HK USP .45, Colt Double Eagle .45, and Springfield 1911 .45 Trophy Match, and held it's own well out to 50'+. I'd say good addition to any collection. note- I too had never even heard of this gun prior to yesterday.

If you haven't yet, I'd call Century Arms and see what's what.
