I recently traded my glock17 for my first 1911! It's a trophy by metro arms. I put about 400 rounds through her. No hiccups at all. I really think my 10 year obsession with Gastons perfection may be giving way to this groundbreaking new 1911 design:)

Congratulations. Sounds like a very nice acquisition. although I have had a 1911 since about 2004, I am now starting to get into them. Don't think they will ever replace my Glocks.

All my glocks have after market everything but this budget 1911 is the best trigger I've ever felt!!

Is that Metro Arms made in the Philippines? I recently picked up a Philippine 1911, a Citadel Compact (made by Armscor) and I am really liking it.

I don't know if I would trade away the Glock 17, but hey, it's all good. My first generation G17 is the only Glock that I would keep. Hell, it's the first and only Glock that I thought of whenever people mention Glock. I sometimes forgot that I also own the G20SF.

Yep. Made in the Philippines. My coworker has a Citadel and loves it.

I'd never get rid of a gen one either! I had three gen 3 17s the one I traded being sort of an extra. My OCD only requires me to have 2 of everything so it was ok:)

Shot all day with the trophy and the classic 2. One failure to feed on a full mag with the first shot of the classic. 400 rss later that was the only hiccup. Now my question is do I need to save up for a more exPensive 1911?
