Bac,I did a lot of reading before I bought it and didn't see one negative report on it.I saw some of yours also so you can say you helped me decide.:supergrin:

Ok, so it's not one of the big name expensive 1911s. So what?:dunno: You like, it's yours, take some pride in it. That looks like a good meat and potatoes 1911. Many of these tend to render very good service. I've developed quite a bit of fondness to my RIA Tactical (very similar to your gun, but the finish isn't as nice), even though I have a couple of much more expensive ones in the safe.

Enjoy it. I've only seen a couple of them around here.

Congrats. A new gun is a new gun.

There is just something about the "regular" 1911 that the higher end models don't have. Don't get me wrong I would love to have a $1000+ 1911, but I think I would almost be affraid to touch it. The regular guns are go anywhere, do anything, fun guns.

Exactly.

I think its a very good 1911, to be honest, and obviously, a great value. I like all the Filipino models. I've never had an issue with any of mine and I own a model from all three manufacturers, Armscor, Metro, and SAM.

The American Classic and Firestorm are Metro guns.

The key words here are ".....put you IN one....":whistling:
He DIDN'T say "...SELL you one...."
I'm sure he'd have been happy to let you sit behind the wheel for a minute....:supergrin:
My brother's checking out 'Vettes....he lives on Cape Cod...and has NO GARAGE!! Mind you, the body may be fiberglass....but if it were me, I'd sure wanna keep that baby covered ANY time I wasn't driving it...and with something more substantial than a torneau cover!!

Nice pistola! I too, like Bac, have a Firestorm DLX already. However, I am trying to work a trade deal for a slightly used American Classic II DLX. It never hurts to have both. :supergrin:
