Honestly though, I'd like to buy a firearm made in the states, I've heard more than a few people comment on the Philippine made firearms but if I could buy US made, even at twice the price, I'd prefer it.

Wiebelhaus, please don't let the fact that they are made in the Phillipines scare you away from some very good pistols. i am on my second American Classic and it's made in the Phillipines just like the RIA pistols. i have looked at the RIA pistols and wouldn't hesitate in buying one at all. when it comes to my firearms, i am very picky when it comes to spending my money. on a side note many of the SA 1911's are made in Brazil and i wouldn't hesitate on buying a SA for one second. if you get a chance to look at them in person, please do. i think you will be much impressed with them.

here is my MetroArms American Classic Commander. with some minor changes.

I'll find a dealer and check them out, I think Academy outdoors carries them.

Many philippino soldiers used 1911's to defend their homeland from the Japanese invaders during WWII, just think of it as a commemorative of that.

I just cant get behind an eight plus one platfrom. I love having max ammo and capacitiy at all times. For a round traveling at around 870fps its a stopper however i perfer my 9mm at 1160fps and increased capacity on many different sizes amd brands. I use a Glock 17 for EDC. Saying that i enjoy the feel and the flat out way the 1911 stirs fear and recognition. There is a reason we love this firearm but i just cant stand up and say i would ever choose this over a higher cap faster round that has more penetration

I can see it for a go to war gun, but for a recreational or CCW gun I think 7+1/8+1 is more than sufficient.

if i didn't have the SA Micro Compact 45, i would most definately give it a try. my next 1911 planned purchase is the RIA in 38 Super. have been wanting one for many years. then possibly another RIA in 9mm just to have my bases covered!

Now I'm a die hard ruger fan and considered trading my p345 for the sr1911 and have wanted a1911 for a long time now.however I checked out the sr1911 and it was small in my hands. It didn't fit me well. Try out a lot of guns man.
