There are good copies, copies that look like the original but function differently, and just plain sorry examples. If one's budget limits him to reproductions of classic firearms, then the information I asked for can be be of great interest. Certainly many of the early buyers of Taurus Thunderbolts wished that there'd been more information about their construction and quality. Or if I wanted a GI 1911A1 and my budget limited me to reproductions, I had no direct experience with them and there was no online source of information, I might make a mistake and buy the Kahr version.
