SHOOT  

I had one (used to me) briefly, several years ago. A couple hundred rounds in it seized and locked up completely. Para determined that it was a frame failure and rebuilt it on a new frame. I sold it about six months later, .45 ACP just seemed to be more than I wanted to comfortably/enjoyably shoot in a short, alloy pistol that was all grip to allow 10+1. Looking back, I enjoy shooting my SA Lightweight Commander much more.

And I think that the Warthog may not a true 1911, parts and user upgrades may be a problem

I went to a bookstore and asked the saleswoman "Were is the Self Help Section?" She said if she told me, it would defeat the purpose.

What Steve said^^^ Also, I think it is double action too.

+1 on Steve.  I had one a few years back as well.  Always wanted one and it shot well, but it just didn't feel right.  It didn't last long before I moved it.  BUT, if the $450 price tag is in LNIB condition, I might do it again.
