Hoss or Model 1

All right......Who has a Guncrafter Hoss model 45. Someone here on the forum must have bought one by now and I need a first hand report on how they like it. I'm toying with the idea of purchasing one or a Model 1 45 acp and can't decide. I like them both for different reasons. The Hoss is expensive but unique and if it's the best Guncrafter has to offer then I'm interested.

I'm waiting anxiously for a Hoss report!

Have not seen anybody post an "I got one!" On this forum yet, but knowing that it is a GI I am willing to predict what that post will say.

Curious to hear your reasons for Model 1? Unless you want to get a .50 barrel for it, you can always update the No Name to a bull barrel and not have to deal with needing unique magazines...

I actually like their proprietary.45 magazines and yes I'm thinking about a .50 cal barrel. I agree....I haven't seen anyone with the "I got one" post either. Still waiting

Hoss or Model 1

Sounds like you have your answer. Model 1 now and Hoss later when it has a chance to prove itself

I agree with you on the quality of their proprietary .45 magazines, just find it inconvenient that they do not fit into a regular .45 leather mag pouch.

Red face

If the Hoss would have came out before I bought a NNC 9mm, I would have bought one.
However the 9 is such an unbelieveably well put together and accurate shooter I would have wanted one any way.

GI Hoss

Just got one. Haven't fired yet but did first field strip and lube. Fit and finish meets/exceeds my WC's and Ed Brown 1911's. Will report back after first range session.
Purchased from John Wells (JW Specialty, Cypress, IL) and did better than published retail. John is a good guy and will work with you. This is not an ad for John, just my personal experience. Cheers all.

If that HOSS had a fully blended magwell and flat trigger it would be hard to resist. George is a straight shooter. My next 1911 will be ordered through migunslingers. I'm anxiously waiting for SZ's range report.

I hear you. I've been wanting one since they were announced. It's good to finally see them out on the market. I've got a Wilson EDCX9 on order but when that one arrives, I may have to ask George to order me a H.O.S.S.

Definitely the HOSS, I am curious on how the oversize parts make it a more durable gun. Working with my Importer on how we can bring one overseas
