The forged frame and slide might not hold up as well long term as a machined one would, but for anybody on a budget that would lead them to want a Norinco or something similar, it probably won't matter so much.
It's pretty much the same with any entry level 1911's. They are a durable design, and with a good feed ramp and tuned extractor, they will be very reliable. If you really want to, you even go over board and tune it to be very accurate. On the off chance that a part breaks, any gun shop in the USA can fix it for you. It's a sensible purchase if they appeal to you.
