In general, they are usually pretty good guns / not great in my opinion - especially when compared to today's higher end semi-custom mfg's of 1911's like Wilson Combat or Ed Brown...

Take it apart ...check for frame galling...
Inspect the barrel and ramp ...
Test the trigger ...see how it breaks ( is there any creep or slack in it ), if no, then its probably just fine / if you have a trigger gague - check at what weight it breaks at...

You may or may not find some things on that gun - that I personall like ...a mag well, an ambi safety and a high ride beaver tail grip safety - all of which can be changed. But those are things I would look at.
